Are You Being Called By Gragil Associates, Inc.?* Here’s What You Need to Know

If you are behind on your monthly payments or even a victim of identity theft, debt collectors will soon start chasing you for the balance. If they are rude and aggressive when you answer the phone, get a free case review from a consumer attorney and be prepared to stand up for yourself.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act protects you from being abused by aggressive debt collectors. It provides you with important legal protections like the ability to dispute a debt and prohibits collection agencies from using tactics like the following:

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Telling your friends, neighbors and co-workers that you owe money
  • Threatening to garnish your wages
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors
  • Calling you names like deadbeat or loser
  • Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
