If you feel that collection agencies have violated your rights with harassment, you may be able to file a claim under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and collect compensation. The FDCPA was founded in 1977.
Today, the FDCPA gives protection to consumers against mistreatment from collection companies. There are strict guidelines as to what collection companies can and cannot do in regard to consumers. Collection agencies are not allowed to be profane or threatening, contact other parties about your debt, or contact you outside of certain times. They are required to practice honesty and privacy, follow the law, and send documentation by mail of the debt.
Debt collection agencies are also not allowed to contact any third parties about your debt, or send you mail that clearly states it is from a collection agency. This is because the FDCPA protects your right to privacy regarding debt.
