Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, is a consumer protection law that regulates what debt collectors can say or do while attempting to collect a debt. Unethical and abusive pressure tactics like those below are illegal.

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Contacting your at work after learning that the employer does not permit such calls
  • Reporting false information to the credit bureaus
  • Demanding amounts that are not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
