Approved in 1977, The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a federal law that is actually an amendment to the Consumer Credit Protection Act. Congress enacted it to provide additional protections for consumers who are being treated unfairly or harassed by debt collectors or third party debt buyers in violation of the law. The act created guidelines by which debt collectors must comply, penalties for violations of the act, and set forth the rights and protections of consumer debtors.

Under the FDCPA, behavior that undermines the dignity or privacy of a consumer is prohibited. This includes:

  • Late night phone calls
  • Harassing family members/neighbors
  • Slandering your name/reputation
  • Threatening with a lawsuit (without the authority to do so)
  • Publishing debt information
  • Profane or demeaning language
  • Calling your workplace without permission
  • Failing/refusing to identify themselves

Despite state and federal regulations which have been designed to put a stop to debt collector harassment and abuse, the illegal practices continue, mostly due to the low risk of consequence to the offending collectors and their companies.

With timely and effective action, violations of the act can result in fines and damages in the form of financial compensation to the affected consumer.

Since our inception, we have been dedicated to providing the most professional, caring and responsive service to our clients in whatever type of case we are handling for them.
