Are you being called by Solomon & Solomon, PC?* Here’s what you need to know.

Although it often seems like debt collectors will do anything, even threaten you with imprisonment or violence, to get your money, don’t capitulate to their threats. The reality is that federal law places strict limits on what collection agencies can and can’t do.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

While debt collectors are legally allowed to contact you about a debt, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) prohibits them from using deceptive or coercive means like the following:

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Contacting you at work if you are not allowed to receive calls there
  • Threatening legal action they are not eligible to take or have no intention of taking
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. your time
  • Trying to collect an amount not authorized by law or by the original creditor agreement
  • Discussing the debt with anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney
