If you’ve heard unfavorable things about debt collectors, they are probably true. Each year the Federal Trade Commission investigates hundreds of complaints about third-party debt collectors. If you’re dealing with one of these aggressive agencies, learn more about your rights when dealing with them.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

While collection agencies are allowed to contact you to discuss paying a debt, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) penalizes debt collectors that attempt to harass you into paying by:

● Saying that they will serve “court papers” on you at work
● Trying to collect a debt that was included in an earlier bankruptcy
● Ignoring a written cease communication request
● Cursing and threatening you
● Claiming to be federal agents or police officers
● Reporting false information to the credit bureaus
