You have legal rights. We can help.

 

Falling behind on your monthly bills is an upsetting position to be in, especially if you’re dealing with a collection agency that is rude and aggressive. The good news is that even if you actually owe the money, you still have rights.

  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
  • Contacting you after you have sent a cease and desist letter
  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Demanding amounts not supported by law
  • Calling you at work
  • Threatening legal action they have no intention of taking
