Debt Collection Abuse

Philadelphia Debt Collection Harassment Attorney

Proven Help Against Abuse by Debt Collection Agencies & Creditors

Abuse or harassment on the part of debt collectors is not a recent development. Collectors have been engaging in illegal collection tactics for decades, victimizing millions of consumers in the process.

It is because of this harassment that the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was enacted by Congress in 1978. This act provides clear guidelines as to the acceptable behavior of debt collectors, and delineates what they may not do when attempting to collect a debt from a consumer.


The FDCPA Prohibits Creditors From:

  • Treating you in an undignified manner, such as using foul or abusive language
  • Calling other people and discuss your debt
  • Contacting you after written notification that you do not want to be contacted any further
  • Accusing you of having committed a crime
  • Using deceptive methods to collect debts
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m.
  • Calling you and not announcing who he/she is
  • Speaking to others (family, friends, neighbors) about your debt
  • Failing to send you written details about the debt within 5 days of the first call placed to you
