Are you being called by GC Services, LP?* Here’s what you need to know.

With an average credit card debt of $15,000 and standard interest rate of 18%, many U.S. households are paying up to 9% of their annual income on interest payments alone. When a financial setback occurs, this obligation can become first overwhelming and then impossible. This is usually the point when debt collectors start calling, many of whom are less than polite in their demands.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

In 1977 Congress passed the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which outlawed abusive conduct on the part of third-party collection agencies. This consumer protection law made it illegal to use tactics like the following to collect a debt:

  • Demanding amounts not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Calling at inconvenient times, usually before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
  • Calling someone at work after they’ve been advised that such calls are not allowed
  • Ignoring a formal cease communications request
  • Claiming that you have committed a crime and threatening to call the police on you if you don’t pay
  • Threatening to ruin your credit forever
