Stop The Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 

Debt collectors don’t always take notice of state and federal consumer protection laws. This is why you need to be informed about your rights when you owe a debt and a collection agency makes your life miserable trying to collect it.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Debt collectors are required to abide by the rules imposed on them by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA. Those guidelines are intended to protect consumers from being harassed into bankruptcy and specify penalties for collection agencies who use harassing tactics like the following:

  • Misrepresenting the character, amount or legal status of a debt
  • Threatening to or actually communicating false credit information
  • Disclosing information about your debts to third parties like your parents and your boss
  • Leaving vague voice messages that do not identify them as debt collectors
  • Threatening to take any action that cannot be taken legally
  • Using profane and abusive language
