Put a Stop to Creditor Harassment
What is creditor harassment?
Harassment from creditors occurs when a creditor or collection agency participates
in or instigates illegal collection practices, such as repeatedly calling
a debtor (sometimes every day), name-calling, or by issuing bogus legal
notices in order to collect a debt. When creditors engage in illegal practices,
debtors have the right to report a creditor or collection agency's
unprofessional conduct and bring the harassment to a swift halt. An experienced
Charlotte creditor harassment lawyer can assist a debtor in taking the
appropriate legal action.
Harassment by creditors is against Federal Law. The U.S. Government passed
a Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) some years ago, which clearly
states that creditors are not to engage in any type of threatening or
troublesome behavior when they are attempting to collect funds from debtors,
as it is illegal. There are countless individuals in the United States
who are subjected to creditor harassment on a daily basis.
Examples of what qualifies as creditor harassment includes:
- Placing calls to a debtor daily
- Placing calls to a debtor's workplace
- Creditors using foul language or name-calling
- Issuing verbal threats of any kind to a debtor
- Creditors who threaten to call a debtor's employer, neighbors, family,
- Calling at unreasonable hours
- Using fake legal documents to collect payments
- Creditors threatening to have a debtor arrested for not paying their debts
