You have legal rights. We can help.


Debt collectors are generally allowed to contact you by phone, mail, or email, but there are certain rules that they have to follow. Although they are not permitted to harass you by calling you at work and at unreasonable hours, many of them do.

Fortunately, there are laws that protect you from such misconduct.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates the professional activities of third-party debt collectors. If a company tries to stress you into paying by using strategies like these, they can be fined and even closed permanently.

  • Leaving threatening messages on your voicemail
  • Ignoring a cease communications letter
  • Calling every hour and hanging up when you answer
  • Demanding amounts not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Claiming they have a warrant for your arrest
  • Using an autodialer to contact you incessantly
