Consumer Attorneys Guiding You Through Fair Debt Collection

Unfair Debt Collection Practices

Legal Guidance from Consumer Protection Lawyers

If you believe debt collectors are targeting you with unfair debt collection practices, our consumer protection lawyers can help you understand and enforce your rights. At SternThomasson LLP, our unfair debt collection lawyers know exactly what is allowed under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Calling at inconvenient times of the day, calling your place of work when you have explicitly asked them not to, calling your family members multiple times and disclosing information about the debt you owe, and threatening bodily harm or arrest are all actions that debt collectors are prohibited from taking under the FDCPA. Many consumers don’t know their rights under the FDCPA, and that’s where we can help.

What Collectors Cannot Do

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) outlines the actions debt collectors can and can’t take when pursuing a debt. Despite the restrictions put in place by this law, many debt collectors continue to use unfair and harassing tactics to try and force you to pay.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act outlines:

  • What time of day debt collectors can call
  • How many times debt collectors can call third parties to locate you
  • Information debt collectors can disclose to third parties about your debt
  • The types of threats debt collectors can make against you

    Even if you owe a debt, you deserve to be treated with respect. Our team at SternThomasson LLP can help you if you are experiencing harassment and illegal tactics from debt collectors. You have rights, and we can help you understand and enforce them.
