You have legal rights. We can help.


The average modern American household carries a revolving credit card balance of $15,000. With a median interest rate of 18%, thousands of people are applying nearly 9% of their income towards interest payments each year. When they can no longer maintain these payments, debt collectors will soon start calling, and not all of them will be civil in their demands for money.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, protects consumers from harassment by third-party collection agencies. Debt collectors are prohibited from using pressure tactics like the following to make you pay:

  • Calling you at an inconvenient time, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Pretending to be attorneys or police officers
  • Discussing the debt with uninvolved third parties like your friends, family and neighbors
  • Refusing to provide you with information about the debt upon request
  • Threatening to have you arrested or imprisoned
  • Using abusive or threatening language
