Put an End to Creditor Harassment in Tampa
Creditors cannot do whatever they like when attempting to collect on a debt. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) outlines that debt collection agencies cannot use behavior that is abusive, harassing or threatening. If this type of behavior has been done against you in an attempt to collect on a debt, you should not hesitate to reach out for legal help.
Types of Creditor Harassment
If you have fallen behind on your debts, some of the actions that the creditor may attempt to pursue against you include:
- Repeated calls to home / work
- Threatening letters
- Abusive language
The above, among others, are prohibited activities that cannot be taken against a debtor. The FDCPA also includes not calling debtors in violation of an automatic stay put in place due to bankruptcy as a prohibited act.
