Is TrueAccord Corp calling you?* Here's what you need to know.

Are debt collectors calling at all hours of the day and night, leaving you threatening voicemail messages? Are they discussing the debt with your friends and family? Telling you that you could go to jail? You don’t have to tolerate it. The law gives you the right to stop illegal harassment from debt collectors.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed in 1977 to protect consumers from being abused by third-party debt collectors. It regulates what these companies may say or do to collect a debt and prohibits actions like the following:

  • Swearing and calling you names
  • Calling at all hours of the day and night
  • Talking to uninvolved parties such as your friends, family, and co-workers about the debt
  • Contacting you after you have sent a cease and desist letter
  • Threatening legal action that they are not in a position to take or have no intention of taking
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in the your time zone
