Are you being called by Collection Information Bureau, Inc.?* Here’s what you need to know

Few feelings are more distressing than being so deep in debt that you can no longer make even the minimum payments on your monthly obligations. Unethical debt collectors will try to make you feel worse to compel payment. They will call you a deadbeat, embarrass you in front of your family, and even threaten court action. If this happens, learn what third party debt collectors can and cannot do to make you settle the debt.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, regulates how third-party collection agencies can contact you about paying a debt. Forceful and deceptive tactics like those below are illegal and can get repeat offenders shut down.

  • Using an autodialer to leave a series of pre-recorded messages
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors trying to collect a debt
  • Threatening to ruin your credit if you don’t pay
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. your time
  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Calling you at work after you’ve told them that your employer doesn’t allow such calls
