If debt collectors have you so stressed out that you cringe every time the phone rings, something is wrong. While collecting an overdue account is legal, harassing and intimidating you to this point is not. Read on to learn more about your rights as an indebted consumer.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed 40 years ago to protect indebted consumers from being bullied into bankruptcy. It regulates interactions between third-party debt collectors and those who owe money, and prohibits actions like those below.

  • Demanding that you pay a debt that was discharged in bankruptcy
  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Maliciously reporting inaccurate information to the credit bureaus
  • Trying to collect after you have disputed a debt
  • Refusing to validate the debt
