The FDCPA and How Your Rights Fall Under It

Before the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to protect consumers from unethical measures used debt collectors. Now using them, debt collectors can face significant penalties.

  • Making threats they have no intentions of taking
  • Refusing to prove that a debt is valid
  • Threatening to damage your credit rating
  • Calling you at times deemed by the FDCPA as inconvenient.
  • Discussing the debt with third-parties, not including you, your spouse, or your attorney
