A lot of New Yorkers have a secret. They’re dealing with abusive debt collector harassment and they don’t know how to make it stop. Unfortunately, many consumers who owe money think that they just have to deal with both the headaches and frustration. However, like all consumers, they have rights, and debt collectors are not permitted to treat them with anything but respect.
In fact, many of the abusive tactics commonly used by debt collectors violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). The FDCPA is a federal statute, in fact it clearly states that debt collectors may not engage in certain behaviors. At Credit Repair Lawyers of America, we help New York consumers stand up for their rights against abusive debt collectors.
