What are your rights under the FDPCA?

Many abusive actions are taken by collection agencies, debt buyers, and collection attorneys as they pursue the recovery of money they believe that they are owed. The FDCPA was enacted to provide full rights, privacy, and proper treatment to individuals who are in debt. Abused consumers can legal action under this act to end the unfair treatment they are experiencing and potentially receive monetary damages, including up to $1,000 in statutory damages.

Common violations of the FDCPA include the following actions taken by debt collectors:

  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
  • Calling a debtor's workplace after being told not to
  • Using obscene language in communication with a debtor
  • Misrepresenting the character, amount, or legal status of a debt
  • Disclosing the debt to a third party
  • Continuing to contact the debtor after being told that he or she is being represented by an attorney
  • Filing suit against the debtor in a venue where the debtor does not reside or did not sign the contract sued upon
  • Failure to inform the debtor during a telephone call that the person calling is a debt collector
  • Threatening the debtor with arrest or imprisonment
  • Threatening to tell the debtor's friends, neighbors, and family members about his or her debt problems
