Your Rights against Creditor Harassment

In an effort to halt abusive behavior from creditors, Congress established the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA). The FDCPA contains several regulations for how third-party debt collectors attempt to recover what they are owed.

Although there are many legitimate ways that a collection agency may contact you, including by phone, mail, fax, or in person, there are several practices that are not legally permissible.

Prohibited debt collection practices include:

  • Harassing, abusing, or oppressing debtors
  • Using false or misleading statements
  • Speaking to a debtor instead of their attorney
  • Engaging in unfair practices when trying to collect a debt
  • Failing to disclose that they are a debt collector when they call
  • Communicating with debtors at an inconvenient time or place
  • Disclosing a debt to third parties other than a spouse or lawyer
  • Threatening a lawsuit when there is no intent to take legal action when the threat is made
  • Threatening to take actions against the debtor that are unlawful

If you have a debt collector who is performing any of these prohibited actions, you should consult with our experienced bankruptcy lawyers right away. We can put an end to the creditor harassment you are facing. Make sure you contact us as soon as possible, as you only have one year to file a lawsuit from the date you experienced the abuse.
