Stop Creditor Harassment in New York

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) protects consumers from intimidating and deceptive practices used by debt collectors. When debt collectors fail to abide by the law, debtors have legal remedies available.

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 a notification 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 collection company are legitimate. Then, request that the debt collector cease making harassing calls and not contact you at work. Ask the collector to send requests in writing by certified mail.
