Stop The Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.


The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, protects consumers from abusive tactics from third-party debt collectors.

One way debt collectors might violate your rights is by asking you to pay more than the original debt.

A debt collector cannot tack on any additional fees to your debt. If a third-party debt collector tries to make you pay a “convenience fee” or an additional charge for its services, or tries to make you pay more debt than you originally owed, the collector is in violation of the FDCPA.
