Are You Being Called By Kunstlinger & Wohlgemuth, PLLC?

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Debt collectors can make your life miserable by calling you daily, ignoring your written dispute, and using abusive language. This type of harassment can make you consider filing for bankruptcy, which is why there are laws in place to protect consumers.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, prevents debt collectors from bullying or deceiving consumers. If a collection agency violates the FDCPA by using tactics like those below, you may seek relief that includes damages of up to $1,000.

● Using profane and obscene language
● Pretending to be attorneys
● Claiming that you owe an amount that’s not supported by law
● Reporting inaccurate information to the credit bureaus
● Threatening legal action they cannot take
● Contacting you directly even after you’ve hired a lawyer
