According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, one-quarter of debtors contacted by debt collection agencies claimed to feel harassed and threatened by the collection activity. When this happens, the law can get involved.
Your Rights and How They Fall Under the FDCPA
The FDCPA does not allow third-party debt collectors from using punitive and harassing means to collect a debt. It regulates what collection agencies can do to collect a debt, and bans tactics like those listed below.
- Ignoring a cease communications notice
- Using an autodialer to leave a slew of pre-recorded messages
- Using profane or obscene language
- Calling you at inconvenient times and places, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
- Giving you a call at work if they know what such calls are not allowed
