  • Place phone calls with a frequency that is intended to harass
  • Misrepresent the amount, nature, or origin or an alleged debt
  • Impersonate law enforcement or another authority
  • Misrepresent the potential penalties for nonpayment, including telling alleged debtors they will be prosecuted, imprisoned, or their wages will be garnished (unless garnishment is actually authorized by a court)
  • Add charges or fees not authorized by the original agreement
  • Solicit or demand an excessively postdated check
  • Threaten to repossess property when the right to do so does not actually exist
