Stop Debt Collector Harassment in Philadelphia
How to Stop Creditor Harassment and Abuse
If you've ever been on the wrong end of a call from a debt collector, you don't easily forget the conversation. The debt collector says everything they can to make you feel bad about yourself, often trying to shame you into paying the debt that you would gladly pay if you could afford it. Unfortunately, the collector's efforts often turn into frustration when they become abusive and direct nasty remarks at you in an offensive tone. Most people who have been victimized by this type of disrespectful treatment by debt collectors first feel embarrassed and humiliated. The calls keep coming but you don't think you have any recourse against the abuse and harassment.
If you are being harassed by creditors, contact Michael P. Forbes, Esquire to find out your rights under the
Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA). Congress has given you weapons in which to fight back and make the debt collector pay you money for their abusive, harassing behavior. Even if you legitimately owe the money, a debt collector has to treat you with respect. That is the law!
My name is Michael Forbes and I have extensive experience helping people that are being harassed by creditors. I know the laws pertaining to
creditor abuse, and can protect your rights. I am available to assist clients throughout
Pennsylvania, so do not hesitate to get in touch with the firm today.
Protect Your Rights as a Consumer
It is illegal for a debt collection company to engage in abusive, harassing or threatening behavior when attempting to collect a debt. This includes:
- Threatening lawsuits or other legal actions because the bill hasn't been paid
- Making repeated calls to collect on the debt
- Using abusive or derogatory language
- Contacting friends and families to collect the debt
- Contacting your workplace after being told not to
I can review your situation and provide skilled legal representation to stop harassment, including filing a complaint or lawsuit against any debt collection agency that is violating FDCPA laws. My firm represents clients in Pennsylvania.
