Are you being called by Receivable Recovery Services, LLC?* Here’s what you need to know

When financial setbacks have a negative effect on your ability to pay your debt, creditors who are not willing to work with you will turn your accounts over to third-party debt collectors, who will call, send letters, and demand payment. If they are rude or intrusive, understanding your rights is an essential first step in fighting back.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) prohibits third-party debt collectors from harassing consumers into paying a debt. Tactics like the following are illegal and can result in expensive fines:

  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Trying to collect an amount that is not authorized by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Telling you that you can be arrested for not paying your debts
  • Making threats they have no intention of following up on, such as garnishing your wages or suing you
  • Shouting and using profanities
  • Reporting false information to the credit bureaus
