Stop The Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 

No matter how much debt you owe, collection agencies must observe respect the law when collecting it, or risk financial and administrative penalties. They won’t tell you that, however. They would prefer you not realize that you have rights in these cases.

  • Raising their voice and threatening you
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Refusing to provide you with information about the debt
  • Impersonating law enforcement
  • Use abusive, obscene, or profane language
