Are You Being Called By JTM Capital Management, LLC*? Here’s What You Need to Know
Many Americans wake up to harassing and abusive voicemails and equally obnoxious demand letters from debt collectors. If this is happening to you and you are contemplating bankruptcy as a result, understand that there are other ways that you can bring these unwanted communications to an end.
Your Rights Under the FDCPA
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to stop third-party debt collectors from harassing consumers into filing for bankruptcy. Today, it continues to protect you if a collection agency tries to make you pay by using pressure tactics like the following:
- Failing to send you a debt validation package within five days of first contacting you
- Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
- Calling you abusive names, like deadbeat and criminal
- Demanding that you pay a debt that isn’t even yours
- Calling you at work when they know that such calls are not allowed
- Re-aging a debt to make it appear collectible by statute
