Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed over 40 years ago to protect consumers from being stressed into bankruptcy by overly-demanding debt collectors. It gives you the right to dispute and sue any collection agency that mistreats you in the following ways:

  • Using an autodialer to call you nonstop
  • Screaming and swearing at you
  • Claiming that you can go to jail for not paying a debt
  • Adding illegal collection fees to the debt
  • Chasing you over a debt that belongs to someone else
  • Contacting you directly when they know that you have an attorney
