Being harassed by debt collectors is a common issue faced by many people throughout the U.S. every year. Whether you have recently lost a job, had surprise medical bills to pay, or anything else, we know that if you are in debt you are going through a difficult time in your life. Constant pestering by debt collectors can make this time even more stressful for you, and may even be illegal. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, there are a number of regulations that protect you from debt collector harassment. Some of these things that debt collectors are not allowed to do include:

  • Calling you at work after they have been told not to.
  • Engaging you in conversation without first telling you the reason for the call.
  • Continuing to call you after you have written them a letter telling them not to.
  • Continuing to call you after you have given them the name and contact information for your attorney.
  • Yelling at you or using profane language.
