Helping Clients Fight Creditor Harassment
Our firm can talk to you about what has been occurring and whether you have grounds to sue the collection agency or creditor. When you consult with our legal team, we will discuss filing for bankruptcy to stop all debt collection efforts and lawsuits entirely.
Unlawful creditor harassment and abuse are outlined in the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Under this Act, creditor harassment includes:
- Contacting a debtor before 8am or after 9pm
- Continuing communication after receiving a written request to cease, except in certain circumstances
- Directly contacting a debtor who is known to be represented by a lawyer
- Misrepresentation or fraud in an attempt to collect a debt
- Posting the debtor's name and information on a public list
- Threatening physical harm
- Using profanity or threats in contact with a debtor
- Contacting the debtor at their place of employment after notification that this is unacceptable or prohibited
- Constant phone calls with the intent to harass or annoy the debtor
In these cases, a debtor might be able to file a lawsuit against the creditor or debt collector to seek financial damages for the harassment or abuse.
