Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, is designed to keep the debt collection process fair, honest, and ethical. Measures like the following violate federal and most state debt collection laws and can get an agency shut down.

  • Calling at inconvenient times that are made known, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
  • Informing you that by failing to pay the debt, you have committed a crime
  • Reporting to the credit bureaus information that is inaccurate
  • Swearing and calling you names while on the phone or in other conversations
  • Trying to collect an amount that is not authorized by law or the original creditor agreement (such as an amount that is higher than what you are owed)
  • Leaving voice messages in which they do not identify that they are a debt collector and the purpose of their call
