Recording Phone Calls

If you are being harassed by creditors or debt collectors who are attempting to collect a debt from you, there are steps you can take to help protect your rights. One of these steps is to record their phone calls with you, so that you will have evidence of any harassing or abusive behavior that they engage in. However, you must be very careful. Many states have laws against recording telephone conversations. A helpful resource can be found by simply typing, "Can We Tape?" into Google. That website has the various recording laws of all 50 states.

For example, in the state of California, it is required by law that you obtain a person's permission before you record them over the phone. You can speak with an attorney to better understand the various recording laws for where you live.

It is also a good idea to keep a written record of any phone calls, noting the date and time of the call, along with the caller's name, company name, and what they said.
