Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Have you been harassed by a debt collector? Have they called you abusive names, called your boss to tell him that you owe money, or threatened you with jail time if you didn’t pay that very day?

This aggressive conduct is illegal, so your next step should be to find a consumer lawyer in your area who will look out for your best interest.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a section of the Consumer Credit Protection Act. When debt collectors use aggressive collection tactics like those below, the FDCPA gives consumers the ability to fight back.

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Telling your friends, neighbors, and co-workers that you owe money and they are trying to collect it from you
  • Making legally insupportable threats
  • Failing or refusing to report a debt as disputed to the credit bureaus
  • Persisting in trying to collect a disputed debt
  • Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. your time
