Are you being called by Vegas Valley Collection, LLC?* Here’s what you need to know

If you’re so stressed by debt collectors that you jump every time the phone rings or a piece of mail arrives, something is wrong. Although collection agencies can request payment, they are not allowed to chase you to the point of harassment. Read on to learn more about your rights under these circumstances.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Prior to 1977, thousands of consumers were declaring personal bankruptcy solely to escape from debt collectors who verbally abused them, called them nonstop, and publicly embarrassed them.

Then Congress passed the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, which prohibits debt collection tactics like the following.

  • Calling you at an inconvenient time, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Discussing the debt with uninvolved third parties like your friends, family and neighbors
  • Claiming that you can be arrested, have your assets seized, or have your wages garnished
  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Trying to collect amounts that exceed the original debt
  • Threatening legal action they have no intention of taking
