Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Are you being called by Security Credit Services?* Here’s what you need to know.

When collection agencies are calling every day and demanding payment, it can be so stressful that you might consider bankruptcy. Before making an appointment with a trustee, however, see an attorney first, as consumer harassment is illegal and you have recourse to fight back.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA prohibits abusive debt collection practices. It regulates what debt collectors may say or do while communicating with consumers and prohibits practices like those below.

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Threatening legal action they are not eligible to take or have no intention of taking
  • Demanding an amount that’s not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Raising their voice and making threats they have no intention of following up on
  • Discussing the debt with anyone except you, your spouse, attorney and any co-signers
  • Calling at inconvenient times, usually before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
