Are You Being Called By FH Cann & Associates, Inc.?* Here’s What You Need to Know

When a debt collector threatens to send you to jail or garnish your wages if you don’t pay what they are demanding, it’s normal to be alarmed. What you need to understand is that failure to pay a debt is not a crime. What IS illegal are these threats.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, regulates what third party debt collectors may say and do while trying to collect a consumer debt. Collection activities that are prohibited include:

  • Demanding amounts not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Calling someone at work after they’ve been advised that such calls are not allowed
  • Threatening to ruin your credit forever
  • Swearing and calling you names
  • Talking to uninvolved parties such as your friends, family, and co-workers about the debt
  • Pretending to be police officers or federal agents
