We know that being in a debt is not a situation anyone wants to be in, but sometimes it is difficult to get back on your feet. Whatever it was that caused your debt, there are many other people just like you who are also struggling to pay it off. Being in debt is not something you should be ashamed of, and you shouldn’t have to deal with being harassed by debt collectors while you are trying your hardest to start making ends meet.

Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) debt collectors are not allowed to use certain, overly aggressive, tactics when attempting to collect a debt. If you feel that a debt collector may be harassing you, you should read the rules listed in the FDCPA and see if you may have legal grounds to sue the collection agency. Some examples of thing a debt collector cannot do when contacting you include:

  • Engaging you in conversation without first telling you that they are calling to collect a debt.Worldwide Asset Purchasing statutory damages

  • Calling you with an autodialer machine after you have told them not to.
  • Adding fees to your debt other than those allowed by law.
