You have legal rights. We can help.


You’ve likely heard stories about debt collectors and how they use harassment to get consumers to pay a debt they may not even owe. What’s even more concerning is that many of these stories are actually true, even though you have rights that prohibit collection agencies from treating you this way.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, is a federal law that protects consumers from unethical and abusive debt collectors. Actions like the following can get an agency heavily fined and even shut down if you complain of mistreatment.

  • Calling you o 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Using profane and obscene language while speaking with your or leaving a message
  • Failing or refusing to report a debt as disputed to the credit bureaus
  • Telling third parties such as your friends, neighbors, and co-workers that you owe money
  • Contacting you after you have formally requested that all communications cease
  • Threatening legal actions they cannot take or have no intention of taking
