Ending Creditor Harassment

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is designed to protect consumers from harassing, intimidating, and deceptive practices used by debt collectors in order to collect debts. When debt collectors fail to abide by the law, debtors have legal remedies available to them. Our firm has represented the interests of consumers for more than 17 years.

The FDCPA prohibits debt collectors from:

  • Making misleading or deceptive statements
  • Contacting the debtor’s employers, relatives, or neighbors
  • Harassing or abusing debtors in an attempt to collect a debt
  • Continue contacting debtor after being notified to stop communication
  • Contacting debtor’s at their workplace when employers prohibit telephone contact

If you are being harassed by debt collectors, there are a few steps you should take. Always keep written records of contact, request verification that the debt and debt collection company are legitimate, request that the debt collector cease making harassing calls and not contact you at work, and send requests in writing by certified mail. If you are being harassed by a debt collector, contact Mallon Consumer Law, PLLC for assistance.
