ABUSIVE DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES

 

Debt collectors are required to follow state and federal laws when attempting to collect a debt. A debt collector is an entity or person attempting to collect a debt for someone else, or who purchased a delinquent debt. Debt collectors cannot make false, deceptive or misleading statements, threaten you with harm or threaten to tell others that you owe a debt, or use foul or abusive language when communicating with you. Common misstatements include seeking to collect more than what is owed, threatening you with false claims of arrest or a lawsuit if you do not make immediate payment, and making it appear that the debt collector is authorized by a government or other authority to collect the debt. If you have been the victim of debt collection abuse, please call our firm for a free consultation. Under the law, you may be entitled to recover statutory damages and actual damages incurred.
