Debt Collectors Cannot Call You At Inconvenient Times

Posted by Roderick Woods | Apr 01, 2019 | 0 Comments

Congress enacted the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) in the 1970's to regulate collection activity and curtail collection abuse. One common area that collection abuse occurs is via harassing telephone calls from debt collectors. Many of The Woods Law Firm's 2014 FDCPA cases centered around telephone harassment from debt collectors.

The FDCPA requires that debt collectors only telephone you during certain times of the day. For instance, the FDCPA specfically states that debt collectors cannot call you before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m.

The Woods Law Firm, LLC has successfully represented Connecticut consumers who have been harassed by debt collectors. If you are being contacted by debt collectors, we can stop them. When we file an FDCPA action against an offending debt collector, we always advance the filing fee and court costs so that you never have to pay anything to assert your rights.
