May 9, 2015 debt settlement

Ever had your day interrupted by a call from a debt collector? Debt collectors have a reputation of being rude and even nasty at times. They might say it’s their job to be annoying. After all, they’re just trying to get you to pay your fair share, right?

Debt collectors harassing you? They may owe  you money!

Debt collectors harassing you? Contact our law office. You may find they owe you money!

Well, not so fast. This is America, and even if you owe someone money you still have rights. According to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, debt collectors aren’t allowed to harass you by:

  • Making threats
  • Calling repeatedly just to annoy you
  • Swearing / using profanity

If you’re being harassed by debt collectors, contact my office for a free initial consult. Who knows, you may even find that collectors owe you money after we’re done talking with them.
