Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


It’s doubtful that you ever intended to go into debt, but personal circumstances left you unable to make the minimum payments on your monthly financial obligations and now debt collectors are calling. If you are being bullied by a collection agency because you’ve experienced a financial setback, learn more about your rights as a consumer.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 after indebted consumers repeatedly complained about being mistreated by third-party collection agencies. This consumer protection law makes it illegal to use tactics like those below to intimidate you into paying.

  • Claiming that you owe an amount that’s not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Refusing to prove that a debt is valid and they are authorized to collect it
  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Failing or refusing to identify themselves as debt collectors in every communication
  • Calling at inconvenient times, usually before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
  • Talking about the debt to anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney
