You have legal rights. We can help.


Unfortunately divorce, illness, and job loss can make it impossible for the most conscientious consumer to maintain their monthly bill payments. When the economy fluctuates, financial hardship results and debt collectors start making calls. If they contact you, they must comply with federal law or risk legal and financial penalties.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed to prevent third-party debt collectors from using harassing, unfair and deceptive methods to collect a debt. If you are being harassed by a debt collector in egregious ways like those below, the amount of compensation you may receive can be significant.

  • Using profane and abusive language
  • Threatening to have you arrested, seize your property or garnish your wages
  • Discussing the debt with anyone except you, your spouse, and your attorney
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. your time
  • Calling you at work after you’ve told them that your employer doesn’t allow such calls
  • Using an autodialer to leave a series of pre-recorded messages

Alleged Violations against Financial Credit Network*

According to PACER, on or around March 25, 2011, a Financial Credit Network collector called a California woman and left their name and number but did not identify themselves as a debt collector seeking to collect a debt. Feeling harassed by Financial Credit Network, the woman hired a consumer lawyer and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Using harassing and abusive means to collect a debt
  • Failing to identify themselves in all communications
  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt

The matter was later settled.
