Are you being called By Collexx, Inc.?* Here’s what you need to know

If a collection agency is chasing you relentlessly for an overdue credit card account you can’t afford to pay, it’s normal to be stressed and upset. It can be even worse if the collectors yell at you over the phone and make threats. If this happens to you, stay calm. You have rights that make it illegal for collection agencies and their representatives to go this far.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed in 1977 to protect consumers from harassment by third-party debt collectors. Since then, it has been illegal to use methods like the following to settle a debt.

  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Calling you at work when your employer does not allow such calls
  • Contacting your friends, family and co-workers and discussing the debt with them
  • Using an autodialer to leave a series of pre-recorded messages
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Refusing to validate the debt and prove that they are authorized to collect it
