Debt Collector Violations and Abuses – FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act is a law that protects consumers like you from debt collection abuses.  The debt collection industry is ripe with scary individuals who will do anything to trick you or coerce you into paying money to them.  Sometimes they threaten wage garnishment or tell you that you’ll go to jail.  Sometimes they will call your friends, family and neighbors to discuss your debt.  Other times they will add ridiculous fees and interest to the debt that you allegedly owe.  All of these abuses are illegal and can give rise to allowing you to file a lawsuit against the debt collector for these abuses.  Below are some interesting posts on different debt collection violations and how our firm can help you deal with these unsavory companies.
