Debt Collector Harassment Lawyer
An attorney can help protect your rights if you’re being abused by a creditor
Have you been receiving harassing collection phone calls? Are you fed up with the aggressive tactics of collection agencies? Are you tired of abuse from debt collectors over delinquent bills?
During the difficult economic times we face today, it’s no surprise that people are having trouble paying off their debts. Just because you’re in debt, however, does not mean you deserve abuse, harassment or to be a victim of deceptive debt collection practices.
How to stop creditor harassment now!
You can take action today to protect your legal rights by retaining a creditor harassment lawyer serving clients in West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Local, state and federal laws protect you from harassment by creditors or debt collectors. If there is proof that a creditor or debt collector harassed you, you may be eligible for financial compensation. An attorney can help you by bringing a claim against the collector.
While you have a legal duty to repay your debts, you also have legal protection from certain aggressive tactics used by debt collectors. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a federal law that place limits on creditors. For example, the debt collectors may be in violation if they send threatening letters, talk to your co-workers or neighbors about your debt, or call you at work. Without these legal protections, aggressive debt collectors may cause irreparable harm to your reputation.
A closer look at the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
The Act provides protection from people carrying a variety of debt, including money owed on a personal credit card account, a mortgage, an auto loan and medical bills. Once you hire a lawyer, the debt collector must contact the attorney, rather than you. To find out more about what is off limits for debt collectors, visit our bill collection law page.
