Debt collector harassment is a huge problem in Florida and all over the U.S., with thousands of Americans dealing with both unwanted phone calls and letters each and every day. Sadly, a lot of Floridians who deal with debt collectors also put up with their abuse. This abuse often goes unreported because people who owe money feel like they are in no position to complain. However, all consumers have rights under the federal statutes.
For example, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) protects consumers against harassing debt collectors. So, even if you owe money, debt collectors must treat you with respect. Florida debt collection agencies are also prohibited from engaging in abusive tactics. If debt collectors violate the FDCPA, then we can make them pay YOU for damages.
