Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA)

Are you being harassed by a debt collection agency for a debt that you do not owe? Is a debt collector trying to collect a debt that is more than 6 years old and legally stale under the statute of limitations? Do debt collectors continue to call you at your place of employment even after you have told them not to contact you at work? Are you receiving multiple collection letters from the same collector each month? Has a debt collector called a neighbor or a relative and told them about your private financial matters?

If these things are happening to you, you may have a claim against the debt collection agency. As a consumer, you have rights under the federal law.

The Federal Debt Collection Practices Act protects consumers from harassing and intimidating debt collection practices. Debt collectors who violate this federal law are subject to statutory damages of up to $1000.00 per lawsuit plus attorney fees.
