Are you being called by Covington Credit?* Here’s what you need to know.

If you’re being chased and threatened by debt collectors, feeling stressed and overwhelmed is normal, especially if they curse at you, embarrass you at work, and tell you that the police will arrest you if you don’t pay. Don’t be intimidated: there are laws to protect you from abusive debt collectors, and these same laws inflict harsh penalties on companies that go too far.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, regulates what third party debt collectors may say and do while trying to collect a consumer debt. Activities like those below can cause an agency to be fined or even lose its license permanently.

  • Using an autodialer to leave a series of prerecorded messages
  • Claiming that you can be arrested or lose your children if you do not pay
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors trying to collect a debt
  • Swearing and calling you names
  • Calling you at work after you tell them that you can’t take personal calls there
  • Leaving vague messages that do not identify the caller as a debt collector
