Dealing with debt is more than stressful and nothing can quite add to that stress like collectors and creditors calling you at all hours of the day trying to get the money you owe them. The good news is, if you are being harassed by creditors, you have options. You can protect your rights as a consumer by hiring a bankruptcy lawyer like the ones at the Law Offices of Donald A. Green.
Consumers are protected from adamant and uncalled for harassment and attempts at collection under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. This means collectors cannot do any of the following without violating the consumer’s rights:
- Calling your phone before 8:00a.m. and after 9:00p.m.
- Contacting a consumer who is being represented by an attorney
- Contacting a consumer while they are at their place of work
- Using profanities
- Revealing information about your situation to a third party.
If you have experienced any of the aforementioned incidents and feel as though your rights have been violated, do not hesitate to contact the Law Offices of Donald A. Green. We can answer any questions you may have and give you the opportunity to fight back against the creditors who are harassing you.
