Fair Debt Collection Practices Act We Fight Tirelessly for You

Long Island Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Lawyer

Protecting Consumer Rights against Creditor Abuse

Borrowing money, whether via credit cards or loans, can be stressful. Even more stressful is having creditors contacting you constantly asking you to repay the money when you are working hard just to earn a wage. While creditors can legally contact you to collect under certain circumstances, this does not mean they are not bound by rules. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was established in 1978 and has strict regulations intended to protect the rights of debtors like yourself. If you are being abused in any way by collectors, let our Long Island FDCPA attorney step in and ensure your rights are not being violated.

Examples of Violations of the FDCPA

If collectors are calling you at all hours of the night or harassing you at work, you may think it's just part of the deal of borrowing money. However, the FDCPA prohibits these activities and others to ensure you are treated fairly and that your privacy is maintained. Abusive debt collection practices continue to be a problem, despite the enforcement of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

A few examples of other actions that are prohibited by the FDCPA include:

  • Accusing you of committing a crime
  • Making false claims about their identity
  • Making violent threats or using curse words
  • Calling repeatedly
  • Claiming that you owe a different amount
  • Claiming to work for a different company
  • Threatening to arrest you or repossess your property
  • Threatening you with legal action
