COVID-19 has left a lot of people dealing with more debt than they can handle. Even with employment insurance income and stimulus checks, it can be impossible to keep up, and there’s nothing to stop debt collectors from calling you and demanding payment- or is there?

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is designed to protect consumers from being harassed by collection agencies. Behaviors like those below are prohibited and give you grounds to sue the debt collector if they go too far.

● Shouting profanities at you over the phone
● Calling you a deadbeat or asking you why you don’t pay your bills
● Failing to notify the credit bureaus that the debt is in dispute
● Repeatedly calling your workplace without permission
● Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
● Falsely claiming to be members of law enforcement.
