After the financial crisis of 2008, many creditors such as banks and mortgage companies were left with unpaid consumer debts. A lot of them recouped their losses as much as possible by selling those delinquent accounts to debt buyers.

These buyers continue to chase and harass consumers over old debts, ignoring the fact that their actions are illegal.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was enacted by Congress in 1977, to protect indebted consumers from being subjected to unfair, harassing, or abusive methods debt collection practices.

If you are being chased by a company that uses strategies like those below, you have grounds to sue them.

  • Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
