Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


So many life essentials, like housing, transportation, and quality education are purchased on credit. This reality leaves so many people with debt loads that can become unmanageable if they lose their jobs or become disabled. Even if this happens, you have rights that prevent debt collectors from harassing you into paying.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed in 1977 to prevent third-party debt collectors from harassing financially insolvent consumers. It grants you the right to tell a collection agency to stop contacting you and sue the companies that subject you to the following types of mistreatment.

  • Leaving voice messages that do not identify them as debt collectors
  • Calling you at work after being asked to stop
  • Using an autodialer to harass you by phone
  • Failing to validate the debt on request
  • Saying they will file a lawsuit against you when they have no intention of doing so
  • Showing up at your house to intimidate you
