Debt Collector Abuse / FDCPA
Abused by Debt Collectors?
Our Zero-Cost Attorneys Can Make Debt Collectors Pay
The future can seem hopeless when debt collectors harass you, when they abuse you, or when they make your life miserable. Thankfully, the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) protects you from abusive debt collection tactics. When a debt collector violates the law, you are entitled to statutory damages, along with court costs and attorney fees.
The FDCPA outlines a variety of shady debt collection tactics that are off-limits. These include:
- Calling you before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m.
- Calling you to the point of harassment, typically three or more times within a seven-day period
- Using profanity or abusive language
- Calling you at work after you’ve told the debt collector that you’re not allowed to receive calls on the job
- Telling a third party – like your boss, neighbor, or family member – that you owe a debt
- Threatening to sue you if they don’t intend to do so
- Threatening to take your home or property if it wasn’t used as collateral for the debt in question
- Continuing to contact you after you’ve sent them a cease and desist letter
- And many more…
