You have legal rights. We can help.


Debt collectors break the law in a lot of ways. They will swear at you, call your friends and family, and pretend to be attorneys. It can feel embarrassing and distressing to be the target of such harassment, but don’t let shame prevent you from acting on your rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a section of the Consumer Credit Protection Act. When debt collectors use aggressive collection tactics like those below, the FDCPA gives consumers the ability to fight back.

● Swearing and using profane language
● Discussing the debt with your family, friends, and co-workers
● Pretending to be attorneys or police officers
● Calling at all hours of the day and night
● Ignoring a formal cease communication request
● Contacting you at work after being advised that you are not allowed to talk to them there
