Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Is Second Round, LP calling you? You may want to learn about your rights.

If debt collectors have you so stressed out that you cringe every time the phone rings, something is seriously wrong. While collecting an overdue account is legal, harassing and intimidating you to this point is not.

Read on to learn more about your rights as an indebted consumer.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

At one time, debt collectors were abusing consumers so blatantly that Congress had to step in and pass the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, to curb the former’s conduct.

Today, the FDCPA imposes serious sanctions on third-party collection agencies that employ methods like the following to collect a debt:

  • Calling at unreasonable and inconvenient hours
  • Threatening action they are not in a position to legally take, such as having you arrested or jailed
  • Contacting you after you have formally requested that all communications cease
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors seeking to collect a debt
  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Discussing the debt with anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney
