Are You Being Called By Curtis O. Barnes*? Here’s What You Need to Know

The fact that you owe money does not give debt collectors the right to harass you. If you get rude letters and demanding calls, Don’t put up with it. You have options that include suing the collection agency for compensation.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed in 1977 to protect consumers from unethical debt collectors. If a collection agency violates your rights under the FDCPA, you have a right to demand compensation for using tactics like the following:

  • Swearing, yelling, and calling you names
  • Contacting you after you have sent a cease and desist letter
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Using an autodialer to leave a series of pre-recorded messages
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors trying to collect a debt
  • Calling you at work after you tell them that you can’t take personal calls there
