Are You Receiving Harassing Phone Calls About Debt?

It is common to get behind on your bills. A lost job, reduction in hours, unexpected financial burden, or just credit cards can be financially overwhelming.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is legislation that prohibits and punishes debt collectors who abuse or harass you and your family over unpaid bills or debt. Our debt collection attorneys in Bowling Green help you understand how federal law protects you against debt calls and other actions, including:

  • Unfair debt collection tactics: A debt collector or debt collection agency may not contact you at all hours of the day or night. Calls made after 9 p.m. or before 8 a.m. could be considered unreasonable. Making repeated attempts to contact you at work is inappropriate if you have informed them not to contact you at your place of employment. If you are represented by a debt collection attorney in Bowling Green or elsewhere, a debt collector may only contact or correspond with your attorney.
  • Harassment and abuse: If you are targeted by a debt collector in Kentucky who uses abuse to threaten or intimidate you, it is illegal. Debt agencies may not threaten violence or imprisonment. They also cannot place harassing phone calls or inform your associates through advertisement or other means that you owe a debt.
  • Misrepresentation: When contacted by debt collectors, many people are upset, embarrassed or frightened by the prospect of legal action. Some debt collectors misrepresent themselves as attorneys, government officials, or even creditors.

A creditor is an organization to whom you directly owe money, such as a car dealership or the bank that finances your home loan. Debt collectors often work for an agency that has purchased your debt from a creditor for pennies on the dollar. Some unscrupulous debt collectors try to collect twice on debt or collect on debt that has already been discharged by a creditor, called zombie debt.

If you do not know your rights and a person shows up at your door telling you that you owe money right now, it is important for you to know how to get help. Remember, the FDCPA exists to protect you from unfair and harassing debt collection efforts. This law, however, does not prevent creditors or debt collectors from legally proceeding with debt collection actions against you for unpaid debt.

Also, the FDCPA protects individuals who owe consumer debt such as car loans, house payments, medical bills, and charges on credit cards. The FDCPA is not intended for use in commerce for business debt.
