Are you being called by W-W Recovery, LLC?* Here’s what you need to know

Anyone can run into financial difficulties, but if they reach the point that they can no longer pay their bills, creditors may turn their accounts over to a collection agency that harasses them for money. Many of these people are so ashamed that they don’t realize they have rights and don’t have to tolerate such abuse.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), is a consumer protection law that regulates the way that debt collectors can deal with consumers. Actions like the following are prohibited and illegal when used to pressure someone into paying a debt.

  • Calling at inconvenient times, namely before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in the consumer’s time zone
  • Telling you that you have committed a crime like fraud and will be arrested
  • Persisting in trying to collect a disputed debt
  • Claiming that you have committed a crime and threatening to call the police if you don’t pay
  • Discussing the debt with your family, friends, and co-workers
  • Reporting false information to the credit bureaus
