Fremont Creditor Harassment Attorney

Understanding Your Rights Against Debt Collection Harassment

As a debtor, you have the right to be treated fairly by debt collectors and agencies that are attempting to collect a debt. Whether you truly owe this debt does not matter when it comes to creditor harassment and abuse; what matters is that these collection agencies must be held accountable for the wrongful and abusive actions they have engaged in. In order to collect on a debt, many debt collectors will go to extreme levels to secure this money from an alleged debtor. They know that many debt collectors within the debt collection industry engage in these unfair practices, and they continue to do so because they believe that you do not know your rights.
