What Is Considered Creditor Harassment?
In fighting creditor harassment, your first line of attack should be to document any instances of abusive conduct on the part of your creditors. This is necessary so that legal action can be taken should it be necessary.
Abusive conduct may include:
- Excessive calls, especially those before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m.
- Excessive collection letters
- Verbal abuse or intimidation
- Threatening you with arrest or legal action
- Failing to identify themselves as a collection agency
- Misleading or deceptive statements
- Calling you at work when you have expressly asked them to stop
- Talking to friends, family, or neighbors about your debt as a way to get you to pay
What Is The Federal Debt Collection Practices Act?
The Federal Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is the primary set of federal guidelines that govern how collection agencies may conduct themselves in seeking payment.
Should you be subject to any methods listed above, the collection company may be subject to fines and other legal action, including your claim for damages.
They are restricted to a certain protocol that involves:
- Identifying themselves
- Providing you with the original debt contact information
- And verifying the exact amount of the debt
Aggressive language or abusive tactics are illegal.
