Are you being called by RC Services, Inc.?* Here’s what you need to know

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau constantly receives complaints about debt collectors and their alleged misconduct. Some consumers complain of being threatened while others claim that they are being asked to pay someone else’s debt. If you find yourself in such a situation, know your rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

In 1977 Congress passed the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, which set guidelines for third-party collection agency conduct and prohibited them from using harassing or deceptive tactics to collect a consumer debt.
