If you have received a letter or a phone call from a debt collection agency, does the communication mean the company has the final say about an alleged delinquent credit card or personal loan balance?

Far too many consumers believe third party debt collectors have complete control over how the debt collection process unfolds. However, a groundbreaking federal consumer protection law says otherwise.

Considered the most important consumer protection law ever passed by the United States Congress, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) outlaws dozens of previously valid debt collection tactics.

A third party debt collector such as Rushmore Service Center LLC cannot threaten to seize your property to liquidate it into cash. The company is also not allowed to deceive you in any way. One of the lesser known provisions of the FDCPA grants you the legal power to send a debt dispute letter to a bill collector.

Know When to Send a Debt Dispute Letter

The United States Congress did not just enact a law that prohibits certain debt collection practices. It also clearly defined the process for sending a debt dispute letter. According to the FDCPA, a bill collector must send you a debt confirmation letter within five days of first making contact with you.

Within the debt confirmation letter should include details about the debt in question, including the amount of money owed and the contact information for the original creditor.

After receiving a debt confirmation letter, you have 30 days to send a dispute letter that requests additional proof that the alleged debt is legally valid. Working with a state licensed lawyer ensure the letter does not contain any emotionally charge language.
