While creditors use an array of tactics to purposefully annoy or irritate a consumer in debt, there are many legal approaches you can take to successfully handle an abusive debt collector. First and foremost, it will be of the utmost importance to hire a debt collection defense lawyer for your case in Chester. As a seasoned attorney serving the surrounding areas of Chester for nearly twenty years, I, Attorney Forbes, am prepared to provide you with useful tactics to defeat a collection agency.
Write a Written Request to Stop Calls
The first approach that can be taken is to write a written request to an agency or collector asking them to stop contacting you. After the written request has been received, they are forced to stop all calls and attempts to contact you under the law outlined by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. If an agent unlawfully contacts you after you have submitted the written request, you may find a civil lawsuit on your hands. The debt collector may be held responsible for continuing to contact you, and could even be forced to pay you for statutory damages.
Hire a Debt Collection Defense Attorney
The moment you team up with a legal representative, a collection agency is no longer allowed to directly contact you. If they do, they have violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and have just put themselves at risk to be sued by you. At the Law Office of Michael P. Forbes, I have dedicated my professional career as a debt collection defense attorney to ensuring the rights of consumers are protected in hopes that they find themselves free of abusive debt collectors.
