Are You Being Called By Montgomery Lynch & Associates?* Here’s What You Need to Know

Many people are living paycheck to paycheck these days and, thanks to the pandemic, even more are unemployed. When they are unable to make the required payments on their credit cards or student loans, their creditors may dispatch debt collectors to collect the balances, turning a difficult situation into a nightmare.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Debt collectors have a bad reputation for kicking people who are already down. Although the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act requires them to be professional when a debt, actions like the following are, unfortunately, prevalent:

  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Harassing you by phone (calling and hanging up)
  • Threatening to have you arrested or imprisoned
  • Adding illegal service fees to the original debt
  • Ignoring a written request to cease contact
  • Failing to send a debt validation letter
