Stop Debt Collector Harassment
If you have been harassed by any debt collections agency, you should know that you have rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. In fact, if a debt collector violates them and you can prove it, you may win a lawsuit against them in court. The FDCPA outlines a number of illegal debt collection practices. For example, debt collection agencies are not allowed to release your information or information relating to the amount or status of your debt to anyone else. They may only make contact with people you know to inquire about your current address and telephone number, and they can only do that once unless the person invites them to call again.
During their contact with you, debt collection agencies are not allowed to make threatening remarks, or insult you or belittle you in order to try and coerce you into paying your debt. You may advise a debt collection agency to stop contacting you regarding your debt, and they must cease their communication immediately. The only exception is that they are allowed to contact you once more to advise you that they are no longer pursuing collection or that they are taking further legal action regarding the payment of your debt. In addition, a debt collector is not allowed to threaten to file a lawsuit against you or take any other legal action against you for your debt unless they actually intend on doing so. If a debt collector is found guilty of violating any provision of the FDCPA, they can be made to pay not only your attorney’s fees and your court costs, but $1000 in damages.
