Stop Javitch, Block & Rathbone Harassment
If you are being harassed by a debt collector, you have the right to report their unethical behavior to the Federal Trade Commission and to file suit against them for their abuse. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act prohibits debt collectors from any abusive or oppressive treatment of consumers when attempting to collect a debt. While debt collectors are allowed to call in an attempt to collect a debt, they may not call at a time or place that is inconvenient to you, such as at your workplace if such calls are not allowed, nor may they call you at any unusual time in an effort to annoy you. The FDCPA also states that debt collectors may not continuously call or engage you in conversation in an attempt to annoy you into paying a debt.
If you are being harassed by a debt collection agency, you can seek legal action against them for violating the FDCPA. If found guilty, they can be forced to pay up to $1,000 in damages, or your actual damages, in addition to your attorney’s fees and court costs.
