Indiana Debt Collection Laws

Indiana doesn’t have a state fair debt collection law, so if you’ve been the victim of debt collector harassment, your best bet is to use the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) to bring the debt collection agency to justice. The FDCPA makes certain debt collector tactics illegal, and gives you the right to sue a debt collection agency in federal court. If the debt collection agency has broken the law, you can receive actual expenses, attorney fees, and up to $1,000.

With the help of a fair debt attorney, you can often reach a settlement with a debt collection agency that either puts money in your pocket or erases part or all of that debt. Complete the form to the right, and the legal team at will provide you with a free case evaluation. If the debt collector has violated the FDCPA, we’ll take your case absolutely free.

File a Complaint

Even though Indiana doesn’t have a separate fair debt collection law or fair credit reporting law, you should still file a complaint with the Indiana Attorney General. Often, attorneys general use consumer complaints as the basis for filing lawsuits against debt collection agencies. Filing a complaint is a way of making your voice heard, and of helping to put a stop to unethical debt collection practices.

Here’s the contact information to call or send a written complaint to the Attorney General’s office:

Consumer Protection Division
Office of the Indiana Attorney General
302 W. Washington Street, 5th Floor
Indianapolis, IN 46204
317-232-6330 or 800-382-5516

You should also file a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The CFPB is responsible for collecting and reporting on complaints about debt collectors who may be violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The CFPB shares its data with the Federal Trade Commission, which looks at patterns of consumer complaints and holds shady debt collection agencies accountable by suing them and fining them. You can file a complaint with the CFPB by clicking here.
