Are You Being Called By Portfolio Investment Exchange?

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Some debt collectors are so predatory that the consumers they target declare bankruptcy, never realizing that the law protects them from being mistreated over a debt. If this is happening to you, learn more about your rights here.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA regulates how debt collectors can communicate with consumers. Since 1977, when the law took effect, approaches like the following have been illegal.

● Swearing and calling you names
● Failing or refusing to identify themselves
● Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
● Pretending to be attorneys or police officers
● Refusing to validate the debt
● Threatening to have you arrested
