Are You Being Called By Foster and Monroe?

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


The possibility of receiving a huge return on investment encourages debt collectors to use hostile and unethical collection strategies on consumers who are struggling financially. If you ever find yourself on the receiving end of such abuse, a consumer attorney can help you protect your rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, requires collection agencies to be civil when contacting you about a debt. Actions like those listed below are illegal and can cause an offender to lose their license.

● Using profane or obscene language
● Leaving voice messages that do not identify the collector
● Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
● Threatening to damage your credit rating
● Refusing to validate the debt
● Telling you that you can arrested or imprisoned for nonpayment of a debt
