Debt Collection Services & Debt Collection Laws

Debt collection laws regulate both collection agencies and attorneys. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) prohibits debt collectors from using abusive, unfair, or deceptive practices. Under the FDCPA, a debt collector is someone who regularly collects debts owed to others. This includes collection agencies, lawyers who collect debts on a regular basis, and companies that buy delinquent debts and then try to collect them.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)

Under the FDCPA, it is unlawful for debt collectors to engage activities such as the following:

  • Calling before 8 a.m. and after 9 p.m.
  • Continuing to call you after you have informed them in writing that you dispute the debt
  • Calling you at work after you requested them to stop
  • Failing to inform you that you have a right to dispute the debt
  • Adding undisclosed fees and costs to the debt
  • Informing your employer or relatives about the nature and amount of the debt
  • Threatening legal action that will not be taken
  • Threatening to have you arrested or charged with a crime in conjunction with the debt
