Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


If you’ve been dealing with a debt collector that is harassing you nonstop, you may feel hopeless, scared, and unsure of what you can do to stop the abuse. When a collector calls your family members, curses at you, or threatens to file a lawsuit against you, it’s time to consult with consumer lawyer who can seek justice for you.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed in 1977 to eliminate abusive debt collection practices. If a debt collector doesn’t abide by its terms and tries to compel debt payments in illegal and underhanded ways like the following, you can take legal action.

  • Swearing and using profane language
  • Failing or refusing to identify themselves as debt collectors in every communication
  • Discussing your debt with anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney
  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zones
  • Demanding amounts not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Showing up at your house to intimidate you
