Every day, people across the country are being contacted by debt collectors who harass, bully, and in general, make their lives miserable. Upsetting as this is, the good news is that you don’t have to put up with it. When a collection agency goes too far, you can sue.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, regulates the professional conduct of third-party debt collectors and penalizes those who use the following strategies to collect payment from indebted consumers:

  • Yelling, swearing, and using threatening language
  • Calling you at work after they’ve been advised that such calls are not allowed
  • Threatening legal action they cannot take or have no intention of taking
  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. unless you give them permission
  • Misrepresenting how much you owe
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors each time they speak to you
