Are You Being Called By Regent & Associates?

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


If a collection agency has you too afraid to answer your phone, something is very wrong. Collecting a debt is legal, but bullying and harassing you to the point that you dread a ringing phone is not. If you are in this situation, read more to learn about your rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) protects consumers from illegal collection practices. It applies to debts acquired for personal, family, and household purposes and penalizes debt collectors using collection practices like those below:

● Using profane and obscene language
● Showing up at your home
● Calling your co-workers, relatives and friends about the debt
● Reporting incorrect information to the credit bureaus
● Using an autodialer to call you
● Contacting you directly when they know that you have an attorney
