DEBT COLLECTION HARASSMENT
Stop Harassment from Debt Collectors
Many consumers are unaware that they are victims of illegal debt collection practices. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act bans specific behaviors, but that doesn’t stop collection agencies, junk debt buyers, and collection attorneys from using strategies that they have found to be effective, even if they are against the law. Just because you may owe a debt doesn’t mean that the collection agency can communicate with you in any way they choose.
Examples of illegal debt collection practices include:
Contacting you very early in the morning or very late at night, or while you are at work
Calling you repeatedly, even after you ask them to stop
Not telling you that they are a debt collection agency, or using a false identity
Talking to someone other than your or your attorney about your debt
Using threatening, profane, or abusive language
Using scare tactics, like wrongly claiming that you will go to prison or have property seized because of this debt
