We Turn the Tables and Stop Debt Collector Harassment

If you’re receiving phone calls and letters from a debt collector then you’re not alone. In fact, one out of seven Americans deal with debt collector harassment at some point in their lives. A lot of these consumers experience abuse and harassment from debt collectors, but they don’t report the incidents. Why? It seems that many people feel that because they owe money, they cannot stop debt collector harassment. Either that or embarrassment from their situation makes it difficult to confide in a Consumer Rights attorney.

However, the truth is that it doesn’t matter if you owe money. Your rights are still protected. Under a federal statute known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), debt collectors are prohibited from engaging in any form of harassment or using abusive tactics.
