What Is Creditor Harassment?

Creditor harassment is illegal, and you may have a legal recourse against creditors who harass you. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), it is illegal for debt collectors to harass, abuse, or oppress a debtor. Creditors are also prohibited from using false or misleading statements when they contact debtors.

Debt collectors are prohibited from the following activities:

  • Using or threatening to use violence
  • Publishing a list of consumers who refuse to pay their debts
  • Using obscene or profane language
  • Calling someone at an unusual time or place, such as before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m.
  • Contacting someone at their place of employment if they have asked the collector not to contact them at work
  • Contacting someone who is represented by an attorney
  • Contacting someone who is a member of the armed forces and is on active duty

If you believe that you are being harassed by your creditor, you should take immediate action. If the creditor is a debt collector, you can file a complaint against them with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). If the creditor is a creditor, you can file a lawsuit against them for violating the FDCPA.
