Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Too many debt collectors refuse to respect boundaries when it comes to collecting money. They will call you late at night, use abusive language, and threaten to garnish your wages. What they’re doing is illegal, but they hope that you will be too unfamiliar with your rights as a consumer to act on them.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, limits what third-party debt collectors can say or do when contacting you. If they use methods like those below, they’re breaking the law and can face substantial fines.

  • Telling you that you have committed fraud and will be arrested
  • Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. your time
  • Discussing the debt with uninvolved third parties
  • Swearing and using profane language
  • Failing or refusing to validate the debt
  • Demanding that you pay a debt included in a previous bankruptcy
