Abusive Debt Collection
No matter how much money a consumer might owe on a debt, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act prohibits abusive, deceptive and unfair debt collection tactics. The FDCPA covers household, family and personal debts, including medical expenses, credit card debts, auto loans and mortgages, to name a few items.
If you are being harassed by a debt collector, by law you may be entitled to $1000 or more in damages. In addition, the FDCPA requires abusive collectors to pay the consumer’s attorney’s fees and costs. That means if a collector has harassed, abused or otherwise violated the FDCPA, your legal fees are paid by the collector. Ask the Law Office of Tregg Lunn if this applies to your specific case.
Debt collectors are prohibited from contacting you at inconvenient times and places. For example, they may not contact you between 9:01 pm and 7:59 am. They may not contact you at work if you have told them not to. Debt collectors are also prohibited from discussing your information with others, as well as from giving false credit information. They cannot threaten you economically, physically or otherwise. As well, they may not threaten to sue you when they actually have no intention to do so or lack the means. If you are experiencing debtor harassment, the Law Office of Tregg Lunn can help you.
