About the Fair Debt Collection Protection Act
The Fair Debt Collection Protection Act (FDCPA) was enacted by Congress under 15 U.S. Code § 1692 to attempt to eliminate abusive debt collection practices by debt collectors, to ensure that those debt collectors who refrain from using abusive debt collection practices are not competitively disadvantaged, and to promote consistent State action to protect consumers against debt collection abuses.
There is extensive proof that third-party collectors, collection attorneys, debt buyers and collection agencies often use abusive, deceptive, and unfair debt collection practices to attempt to gain an unfair advantage and utilize unlawful tactics to collect money from debtors.
These collection practices contribute to:
- Marital instability
- Job loss
- And invasion of individual privacy
(15 U.S. Code § 1692 - Congressional findings and declaration of purpose). Under several New York State statutes and under the Fair Debt Collection Protection Act (FDCPA), you have rights. You do not have to be intimidated or harassed any longer.
