Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) it is illegal for debt collectors to use certain techniques when collecting debt. If a collection agency breaks any of the rules laid out in the FDCPA, it is considered debt collector harassment, which the agency could be held accountable for in the court of law. Some things that a debt collector cannot do under the FDCPA are:
- Discuss your debt with anyone besides you or your wife.
- Call you at work after you have told them not to.
- Continue to call you after you have given them the name and contact information of your attorney.
- Call you using an autodial machine after you have told them not to.
- Threaten you with jail time when they have no valid legal claim.
If a debt collector has broken these rules or any others while contacting you, you could be entitled to up to $1,000 in statutory damages. If you win your case, the collection agency will also be held responsible for paying your legal fees.
We know that no one enjoys being debt, but sometimes life throws you a curveball and it can be difficult to work your way out of debt. There are many Americans just like you who are having trouble paying off their debt, and it is nothing to be ashamed. Whatever it was that caused you to go into debt, it was likely a stressful situation, and you do not need your problems being compounded by harassing debt collectors. If you think that your rights have been violated you should set up a free consultation with an attorney immediately.
