Stop The Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 

Anyone can experience financial difficulties, but some people are at such a disadvantage that they fail to rebound quickly. As a result, their credit cards, medical bills, and student loans go into arrears and eventually debt collectors start chasing them for payment.

If it happens to you, never forget that as a consumer, you have rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) allows collection agencies to contact you about paying a debt, but they may not pursue you to the point of harassment or use collection tactics like those listed below.

  • Swearing and using profane language
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. your time
  • Disguising the fact that they are debt collectors trying to collect a debt
  • Threatening to have you arrested or jailed
  • Trying to collect amounts that exceed the original debt
  • Telling your friends, neighbors, and co-workers that you owe money and they are trying to collect it from you
