Don't Let Debt Collectors Harass You — Our Carmel Law Office Can Help

The Federal Debt Collections Practices Act specifically prohibits many activities that jeopardize your rights. Among the most common are situations like these:

  • A bill collector is not supposed to call you before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m., or at any other time that is inconvenient.
  • While it is legal for collectors to call you at your work, if you tell them that their calls may put your job in jeopardy, then the calls must stop.
  • If they plan on taking legal action, it is legal to contact you again.
  • It is illegal for collectors to discuss your debt with a third party other than your spouse without your permission.
  • Collectors are not allowed to use profanity.
  • Collectors are not allowed to misrepresent themselves.
  • It is illegal for collectors to make false threats. If they say they are going to do something, they must enforce it. They can however, infer action and point out their legal rights.
  • You must receive a letter within five days of the first telephone contact. The letter will be about your account and you have the right to dispute it. If you dispute the debt in writing, all collection efforts must halt until it has been verified that there is debt.
  • If you have an attorney, the collector can only communicate with him or her until you are no longer using the attorney.
