Is Commercial Trade Bureau of California calling you? Be aware of your rights!

Debt collectors are the dread of anyone who has fallen behind on their monthly bills. Dealing with daily demand calls and letters can compound the stress you already feel when dealing with a financial hardship.

Although your creditors have every right to recoup delinquent payments, you also also have rights as a consumer, and when they are violated you have the groundwork for a lawsuit against the collection agency.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) forbids debt collectors from using abusive, and / or deceptive means to obtain money from you. Illegal actions include:

  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors seeking to collect a debt
  • Contacting you even after you dispute a debt
  • Telling uninvolved third parties that you owe a debt
  • Refusal to provide you with information about the debt upon request
  • Threatening to have you arrested or imprisoned
  • Using abusive language
