Fair Debt Collection Laws

Debt collection agencies are allowed to check up on debtors, but they cannot abuse them. The line between is clear.

You should hire an attorney if you have experienced any of the following debt collection abuses:

  • Calling over and over again and at all different times of the day
  • Threatening you with legal action
  • Calling you at work after you advised them that you are not allowed to receive these phone calls at work
  • Contacting you after you have sent written notification that you do want to be called anymore
  • Filing legal action and/or taking a judgment without properly serving you
  • Contacting friends or family about your debt
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m.
  • Failure to disclose who they are and that they are actually calling regarding a debt
  • Messages left on a public answering machine
  • Attempt or threaten to collect a debt that is too old to enforce under state law
  • Claiming they are with a public agency when in fact they are not
  • Claiming to be an attorney when in fact the debt collector is not
  • Threatening violence or harm
  • Making threats to report you of having committed a crime
  • Using profane, abusive or vulgar language
  • Misrepresent the character, amount, or legal status of a debt
  • Threatening to take any action that cannot be taken legally, such as having you arrested
  • Threatening to communicate false credit information
  • Demanding your social security number, credit or debit card, or bank account information
  • Failure to send written details about the debt within five (5) days of the first call placed to you
  • Making any false promise to improve your credit score
