Are You Being Called By Collection Excellence, LLC?*

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Many of us fall behind on our bills from time to time. Health problems, job loss, and unexpected expenses can all leave us short until debt collectors start calling. However, when their calls, letters, and other forms of contact become harassing, they’ve crossed the line and actually broken the law.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, protects you from unfair and malicious debt collection practices. It acknowledges that financial distress is difficult enough without stressful and harassing communications from collection agencies, and prohibits conduct like the following:

  • Excessive calling with an intent to annoy or harass
  • Making physical or verbal threats
  • Calling after being informed that you have legal representation regarding the debt
  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Calling during inappropriate hours (generally between 9:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m.)
  • Threatening to tell your friends and family that you owe money
