Debt Collection Harassment (FDCPA)

Being harassed by a debt collector who is trying to collect on an outstanding debt can be stressful and humiliating. Debt collectors sometimes resort to abusive behavior, trying to intimidate or scare people using letters, phone calls and other modes of communication.

If you have been the victim of harassment related to debt, an experienced debt collection harassment lawyer from Stein Saks, PLLC can help. Sending your letters to us would be a good first step. We are focused on consumer rights and have successfully sued many debt collectors, receiving numerous settlement funds for our clients.

If you’ve been victimized by debt collection harassment, legal representation and litigation won’t cost you anything. Consumer protection laws state that the debt collectors must pay all fees and costs, not the victims.

You have rights! Debt collectors may not:

Harass or abuse you

Make false or misleading statements

Use or threaten to use violence or other criminal means to harm you, your reputation or your property

Use profane or abusive language during a collection call

Ask you to pay illegal interest, fees or expenses

Illegally inform others about your debt

Frequently Asked Questions About Debt Collection Harassment Laws

Q: Are there rules about when and how a debt collector can call me? 

A: Debt collectors must follow the rules established by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). This federal law says that debt collectors may not contact you at work if they know your employer doesn’t approve of personal phone calls at work. Debt collectors also may not call you before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m. and may not call repeatedly or continuously.

Q: Do the laws covering debt collection protect me when the debt is mine?

A: Yes! The FDCPA gives you the right to fight illegal debt collection practices in all cases, including situations when you owe the debt.

Q: How can an attorney help stop these harassment methods?

A: A debt collection attorney can review any collection letters or recorded messages you received to determine if the debt collector used language that is prohibited by the FDCPA or otherwise engaged in illegal harassment. If a violation occurred, your attorney can help stop the harassment. Your attorney can also file a lawsuit on your behalf and fight to help you obtain the compensation the law says you are entitled to receive.
