Called By Credit Management, LP?*

Stop The Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 

While credit enables us to obtain items in advance and pay for them over time, it can also ruin you financially if you lose your job, become too sick or disabled to work or are otherwise unable to make the minimum payments. When debt collectors start calling and leaving aggressive messages the situation can become a nightmare unless you know your rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Many people are surprised to learn that abusing indebted consumers is against the law. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, prohibits third-party collection agencies from using harassing or deceptive methods to pressure debt payments out of people. Examples include:

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Threatening to tell everyone you know that you owe money
  • Refusal to provide you with information about the debt
  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Threatening to have you arrested
  • Making threats they have no intention of following up on, such as garnishing your wages or filing a lawsuit
