Many consumers in the United States are harassed by debt collectors, sometimes for debts that they don’t even owe. Even if your debt is legitimate, collection agencies are legally prohibited from harassing you to recoup it.
The FDCPA and How Your Rights Fall Under It
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed by Congress in the late 1970s to prevent third-party debt collection organizations from using inappropriate measures to collect from consumers. Because of this, collection agencies cannot:
- Discussing the debt with third party, which include people from work, neighbors, and friends
- Demanding amounts that exceed the original debt
- Using inappropriate language
- Using an autodialer to harrass
