Are you being called by Credit Bureau Services of Iowa, Inc.?* Here’s what you need to know

If you encounter financial difficulties that send your monthly bills into arrears, your creditors may eventually turn the accounts over to a third-party collection agency. These debt collectors are infamous for pursuing payments in harassing ways, such as swearing, calling day and night, and threatening lawsuits. If this does happen to you, don’t tolerate it. Call an attorney instead.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed in 1978 by to provide guidelines for debt collector and protect consumers from abusive, unfair or deceptive practices like those listed below:

  • Calling at inconvenient times, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Threatening to call your payroll department and tell them you owe a debt
  • Threatening legal actions that they have no intention of taking
  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Demanding high amounts inflated by service ‘fees’
  • Refusing to provide proof that you owe a debt and they are authorized to collect it
