You have legal rights. We can help.


Just because you owe money does not give collection agencies the right to harass you. Many people, however are unaware of the laws in place to help protect their rights. Debt collectors are aware of this knowledge gap and often get away with harassing, bullying, and deceiving consumers.

Don’t put up with it. You have options that include suing the collection agency for compensation.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, requires third-party collection agencies to behave civilly when communicating with indebted consumers, but it doesn’t always happen.

Abusive tactics like those below are common but illegal, and if you report them it can result in both fines and revocation of the agency’s license.

  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Trying to collect an amount that is not authorized by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Calling you at work after you’ve told them you’re not allowed to talk to them there
  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Contacting your friends, family and co-workers and discussing the debt with them
  • Using constant phone calls to annoy or harass you

Alleged Violations against Paragon Revenue Group

According to PACER, in or around January 2016 and through January 2017, Paragon Revenue Group allegedly called a Texas woman regarding an alleged debt belonging to her grandmother. She kept telling the collectors that they had the wrong number and to stop calling her, but the company allegedly continued to call.

Feeling harassed by Paragon Revenue Group, she hired a consumer lawyer and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Using harassing and oppressive means to collect a debt
  • Harassing her by phone

The matter was later settled.
