What is FDCPA?

An Overview of the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, is a set of laws that were enacted by Congress in 1978. These laws are meant to protect the rights of consumers, as well as delineate what debt collectors cannot do in the pursuit of a debt. Specifically, this act exists to ensure that consumers are not being abused or harassed by the practices of unscrupulous debt collectors. The act forbids collectors from:

  • Contacting debtors at odd/inconvenient hours (traditionally described as before 8 am and after 9 pm)
  • Employing profane or abusive language when speaking with debtors
  • Contacting debtors at their place of work, after the debtor's employer has expressly asked for this not to occur
  • Threatening debtors with lawsuits, if no such suit is actually intended
  • Telling debtors that they have committed a crime, or threatening them with arrest/jail time
  • Contacting the debtor's friends or family to discuss their debt

If you are actively being harassed or abused by debt collectors, then you will want to contact a Price Law Group bankruptcy attorney as soon as possible. In addition to possibly helping you to get the abuse to stop, they can provide you with debt relief options that may eradicate your negative financial situation for good.
