Creditor Harassment

Irvine Creditor Harassment Lawyers

Proudly Assisting Debtors Across Southern California

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) were enacted to protect individuals from aggressive and predatory collection tactics. Unfortunately, many debt collectors fail to abide by these regulations. There are specific rules and strict guidelines that collectors must legally follow when attempting to recover a debt, otherwise, they can face severe consequences. Debt collecting organizations can have their membership and certification with ACA International terminated if they violate provisions of the FDCPA and TCPA.

Know Your Rights as a Debtor

The damage that the COVID-19 pandemic inflicted on the economy has left hundreds of thousands of Americans without jobs and dealing with massive debt. Although people are struggling to get by and can’t even pay their basic bills, creditors are still harassing individuals and infringing on their rights. However, creditors have limited options for collecting a debt. Our experienced creditor harassment lawyers can help you protect your rights.

Debtors have the following rights, and more, under the FDCPA and TCPA. While represent the most common issues we see, contact us if you feel as if you are being harassed and in a way that does not fall into one of these categories:

  • Collectors can't call before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m.
  • Collectors can’t contact debtors at work if they have been informed either verbally or in writing that the employer doesn’t allow such calls in the workplace
  • Collectors can't contact third parties about a debtor for any reason other than obtaining contact information
  • Collectors can’t harass or abuse debtors or anyone else they contact regarding the debtor
  • Collectors can’t lie to debtors about the amount they owe
  • Collectors can't use deceptive methods to collect a debt
  • Collectors must send debtors a written “validation notice” within five days of first contacting them
  • Debtors have 30 days from the time they get the validation notice to request verification of the debt
