Stop Debt Collection Calls
If you’re experiencing misleading or threatening phone calls and letters from a debt collector, do not fret. Debt collectors are not permitted to mislead you in any way, nor are they allowed to frighten consumers into paying. A misleading debt collector may claim he has the authority to seize your property or have you arrested, or convince you or tell you that you’ve committed a crime. If you are being misled by a debt collector, the first thing you must do is have a written record of all communication. If possible, save telephone messages and voicemails to further support your claim. If you are being deceived by a debt collector, it is important that you fight back. If you are able to contact a fair debt attorney, do so immediately. You are entitled to attorney’s fees as well as up to $1,000 if the debt collector has violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and you prevail in court. You should also immediately file a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The CFPB and Federal Trade Commission are responsible for enforcing the FDCPA and use complaints from consumers to monitor abuse by debt collection agencies. Fight against unfair and illegal debt collection practices. It is your right to be treated with dignity and respect, and no collection agency is allowed to mislead or threaten you.
