Recording Phone Calls
Creditor Harassment Attorney in San Jose
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.
