What to Do if You Are Being Abused and Harassed
San Jose Collection Abuse Lawyer
First, you can ask them to stop- some debt collectors will respect your
wishes. Second, you can also send them a cease and desist letter. Third,
filing a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, State Attorney General's
Office or Better Business Bureau, will usually get the debt collector's
attention, however, these agencies are sometimes overwhelmed with the
number of complaints they receive about debt collectors who violate the
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
A more direct and efficient way of dealing with creditors or debt collectors
is to report the collection abuse to a consumer protection attorney. An
experienced attorney can help you better understand
your rights as well as get the creditors off your back. If you can prove the violations
then the attorney will also speak with you about potentially brining a
lawsuit against the debt collector.
If you are being abused or harassed by creditors or debt collection agencies
there are some things you can do to better protect yourself. It is important
that you save all letters, voice mails, hand written notes, telephone
bills, etc. Many times it is this evidence that will help you prove and
your attorney prove what happened.
