Collection agencies are known for using abusive and illegal strategies to collect money from indebted consumers. Although federal law requires debt collectors to treat you with honesty and respect, many of them still harass people to get them to pay.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which is enforced by the Federal Trade Commission, imposes firm guidelines on how debt collection agencies may communicate with consumers. Actions like those violate the law and can get a company’s license revoked.

  • Calling at inconvenient times, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
  • Swearing at you
  • Pretending to be police officers or government employees
  • Discuss the debt with anyone except you, your attorney, spouse, or co-signer
  • Demanding amounts that exceed the amount of the original debt
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors in each communication

Feeling harassed by Contract Callers, Inc., the consumer sued the company for allegedly violating her rights by:
