Are You Being Called By Jeffrey G. Lerman?

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Every day, consumers are harassed by debt collectors. If any of your obligations fall into arrears you may be pursued by a collection agency that harasses you by phone and makes unreasonable demands. If that happens, you have options.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to prevent debt collectors from ruining the lives of consumers in financial distress. It prohibits actions like the following and makes it possible for affected parties to seek compensation.

● Using profane and abusive language
● Calling you repeatedly
● Demanding illegal collection fees
● Claiming that you can go to jail for not paying a debt
● Calling you at work after you’ve told them to stop
● Claiming to be an attorney or a law enforcement official
