Congress has recognized that consumers are entitled to be protected from illegal debt collection. Despite enacting the Fair Debt Collections Practices (FDCPA) act in 1978 debt collectors continue to engage in collection activity that violates common decency and is a violation of the law. A very interesting article regarding the evolution of collection practices is explained in an article published at jdsupra.com.
We wrote a blog post about unlawful collection and a link to that post can be found by clicking here. Debt collection tactics are a lot
like those of a school yard bully. It is perfectly fine to standup for your self when those actions cross the legal and ethical line. If you are not being treated with truth, dignity, honesty and respect it is very likely your rights under the FDCPA have been violated. For a Free Consultation contact us here.
