You have legal rights. We can help.


If you run into financial trouble, you may eventually default on one or all of your monthly obligations. After a certain number of missed payments, your creditors may assign the accounts to a collection agency.

This can make a stressful situation even worse, but never forget that no matter how much you owe, you still have rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Debt collectors can be persistent when trying to collect your money, but you don’t have to tolerate abuse. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, prohibits third-party collection agencies from using pressure tactics like those below when dealing with you.

  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in the consumer’s time zone
  • Talking to anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney about the debt
  • Failing or refusing to identify themselves as debt collectors in every communication
  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Calling you at work when your employer does not allow such calls
  • Pretending to be police officers or federal agents

Alleged Violations against First Credit Services

According to PACER, in or around early 2011, First Credit Services allegedly started calling a Florida consumer to collect an alleged gym membership debt. He claimed that he told the agency to stop calling, but the communications continued, sometimes twice a day.

Feeling harassed by First Credit Services, the consumer filed an FDCPA lawsuit against the company for:

  • Harassing him by phone
  • Continuing to call after being asked to stop

The matter was later settled.
