How Do I Stop Collection Agency Harassment?

If a debt collection agency is harassing you, contact the creditor to see whether you can create a payment plan or come up with another compromise. If that doesn’t work, or if the agency continues to contact you incessantly, send a letter outlining the behavior and requesting that the creditor no longer contact you. By law, the collection agency must cease. If you are still experiencing harassing behavior, consult an attorney for assistance. Once you have legal representation, a collection agency lawyer will need to direct all further communication to your lawyer, rather than to you.
