Are you being called by United Commercial Collections, Inc.?* Here’s what you need to know

Debt collectors can be ruthless, acting without regard for your rights. This is because experience has taught them that most consumers, unfamiliar with their rights, will cave in and pay sooner or later. Don’t let the same thing happen to you.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, grants you the right to dispute a debt and tell third-party collection agencies to stop calling you or sending letters. It also prohibits the use of activities like those below when collecting or attempting to collect a debt.

  • Asking you rude questions like why you don’t pay your bills
  • Calling you at work after you tell them that you are not allowed to talk to them there
  • Pretending to be attorneys, police officers, or federal agents
  • Calling at unreasonable and inconvenient hours
  • Reporting false information to the credit bureaus
  • Use profane or obscene language
