Collection agencies serve an important purpose. They support businesses by collecting debts that remain unpaid. This is why their profession is legal and, some would say, necessary, but when they abuse consumers to collect that money, their conduct becomes illegal and puts them at risk of being shut down.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to ensure that debt collectors treated indebted consumers fairly, but some agencies count on these debtors being unfamiliar with their rights and try to compel payment by:

  • Ignoring a formal cease communications request
  • Refusing or failing the validate the debt
  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Contacting you after you are represented by an attorney
  • Telling you that they can garnish your wages if you don’t pay
  • Calling your workplace when they know that such calls are against your employer’s rules
