You have legal rights. We can help.


There are many different reasons why debt accumulates, but the last thing you need is a collection agency bullying you about it. Don’t let this happen to you: treating you this way is against the law.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Although the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) mandates that collection agencies always behave professionally, tactics like those below happen frequently enough to inspire thousands of complaints to the Federal Trade Commission.

  • Swearing and using profane language
  • Calling at all hours of the day and night
  • Refusal to provide you with information about the debt
  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
  • Threatening to garnish your wages
  • Demanding amounts that exceed the original debt
