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

Are debt collectors calling you at home and work and discussing your debt with your roommates and colleagues when they pick up the phone? Are they calling you names like loser and deadbeat? You don’t have to tolerate it: consumer abuse by third party debt collectors is actually a violation of federal law.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to establish guidelines for third-party collection agencies and protect consumers against unethical debt collection practices. Actions like the following are illegal when committed during a debt collection attempt.

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Threatening action they cannot legally take or have no intention of taking
  • Demanding amounts that are inflated by ‘service charges’
  • Failing or refusing to validate the debt
  • Contacting you after you have sent a cease and desist letter
  • Calling and hanging up or leaving a stream of pre-recorded messages
