Are you being called by Matthews, Pierce & Lloyd, Inc.?* Here’s what you need to know.

Being deep in debt is bad enough. When you add hostile debt collectors to the equation, it can be a pretty stressful situation for anyone. Consumers all over the country are getting calls that come at odd hours of the day and often include threats of lawsuits and jail time. If this happens to you, you have the right to fight back.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Some debt collectors are hostile and abusive despite the existence of a consumer protection law called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Using methods like those below can cause an agency to lose its license, but many assume the risk anyway.

  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Demanding amounts that are inflated by ‘service charges’
  • Calling you several times per day using an autodialer
  • Swearing and using racist or sexist language
  • Discussing the debt with anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney
  • Ignoring a written request to cease contact
