Are you being called by Collection Services of Athens, Inc.?* Here’s what you need to know.

Nasty and intrusive calls from debt collectors can add to the stress of having financial difficulties. When those calls include threats and intimidating language, the situation can get even more intolerable, and you might be tempted to declare bankruptcy. Read up on your rights first!

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed in 1977 to protect consumers from being abused by third-party debt collectors. It still prohibits the use of actions like the following during the collection of a debt:

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors seeking to collect a debt
  • Threatening action they cannot legally take or have no intention of taking
  • Harassing you by telephone (e.g. calling and hanging up)
  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Calling you at work if they know what such calls are not allowed
