Are you being called by Hospital Collection Services?* Here’s what you need to know.

Imagine being called every day, with the caller threatening you with a lawsuit or jail time. For many consumers across the country, this is a reality. Debt collectors leave them menacing messages telling them they need to pay what they owe or a warrant will be issued for their arrest. If this happens to you, don’t be scared into bankruptcy. You do have rights when it comes to debt collectors.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, limits what third-party debt collectors can say or do to collect a debt. If they use methods like those below to scare you into paying, they’re breaking the law and can be penalized accordingly.

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Pretending to be attorneys or police officers
  • Raising their voice and making threats
  • Ignoring a formal cease communications request
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Refusing to provide proof that you owe a debt and they are authorized to collect it
