Defending You from Unfair Debt Collection Tactics

You may owe money to various creditors but that gives them no right to harass you. To try to avoid restrictions and regulations established by the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), creditors will often sell their debt to collection firms. These third party collection companies seem to be more blatant with their harassment tactics and could violate your rights by calling too frequently or by acting without professional conduct. Additionally, with the help of your lawyer, you can request verification of the debt that clearly states the amount you apparently owe and the name and address of who you owe. If the documentation cannot be generated in a timely manner, the creditors must cease immediately and you may be able to countersue.

If you win a case against a harassing debt collector, you can pursue financial compensation that covers:

  • Up to $1000 per lawsuit
  • Actual damages
  • Punitive damages
  • Attorney fees
  • Court costs
