Are you being called by Credit World Services, Inc.? Learn how to protect yourself from predatory debt collectors!

If debt collectors are harassing you constantly about an obligation, you may feel like declaring bankruptcy to make the rude calls and letters stop.

Before you take that step, however, consult a consumer attorney, because it is illegal for collection agencies to harass indebted consumers, and you may have grounds to sue.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a consumer protection law that regulates what third-party debt collectors may say and do when trying to collect a debt from you. It prohibits abusive tactics like those below:

  • Calling at all hours of the day and night
  • Calling at inconvenient times, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Calling you at work after you’ve told them that your employer doesn’t allow such calls
  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Failing or refusing to identify themselves as debt collectors trying to collect a debt
  • Demanding amounts not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
