Fight Back Against Illegal Debt Collection, Harassment, and Abuse
The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act was passed to ensure that debt collectors treat all persons with honesty, respect, and dignity. Many debt collectors follow the law because they know that treating people the right way is likely to result in fewer complaints and more collections.
But, everyday, some debt collectors are violating the law. The federal Fair Trade Commission receives hundreds of thousands of complaints every year from consumers about debt collectors. A check of the Better Business Bureau page of any debt collector will probably show a failing rating. The internet is full of discussion pages reporting yet another abuse by a debt collector. Getting harassed? Just search the internet for the name of the debt collection company pursuing you and no doubt you will find pages full of complaints.
