Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


The law requires debt collectors to treat you with fairness, dignity, and respect, but this is not always what happens. Every year the Federal Trade Commission receives complaints about indebted consumers being threatened and harassed for nonpayment of a debt.

If it happens to you, complaining to the FTC is only a start. You can also sue the debt collector.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

When collection agencies cross the line, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, steps in to protect you from deceptive and unfair treatment. When a debt collector tries to make you pay in the following ways, call a consumer lawyer to go over your options.

  • Contacting you after you are represented by an attorney
  • Failing to warn you that a communication is from a debt collector and that any information obtained will be used to collect a debt
  • Telling you that they can have you sent to prison if you don’t pay
  • Calling your workplace when they know that such calls are against your employer’s policy
  • Cursing and yelling at you over the phone
  • Claiming to be attorneys (if they are not) or police officers
