You Have Rights When it Comes to Debt Collection
Can a debt collector contact you anytime they want? Nope.
Can a debt collector deceive you in any way to get you to speak with them or pay your debt? Nope.
Can you tell a debt collector to stop contacting you & do they have to? You bet.
In the late 1970s, The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed by Congress to put an end to corrupt debt collection practices and to protect consumers from unlawful harassment for unpaid personal, family and household debt (business-related debts are excluded).
