You have legal rights. We can help.


Being chased and hounded by debt collectors can be distressing, but never forget that you have rights. The law limits what collection agencies may do when attempting to settle a debt, but many of them would prefer that you not know this.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

In 1977 Congress passed the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act to protect consumers. Since then, it has been illegal for a collection agency to do the following while attempting to collect a debt:

● Calling at inconvenient times
● Yelling at you
● Failing to validate the debt
● Using profane or obscene language
● Calling you at work without approval
● Pretending to be police officers
