Collin County Collection Agency Harassment Attorney

Collection Agency Harassment Attorney

During these times of economic hardship it’s entirely understandable that you may have fallen behind on your obligation to a creditor. While the creditor has every right to contact you, there are very specific rules provided by the Federal Trade Commission regarding collection agency harassment. However, not all debt collectors abide by the rules. Your attorney in McKinney, TX is pleased to provide you with a few of those rules so you can stop collection agency harassment.

Debt Collection Rules

Debt Collectors May Not:

  • Contact you before 8 am or after 9 pm.
  • Contact you at work once you have notified them you’re not allowed to take calls there.
  • Contact third parties more than once regarding your debt, and then it must be limited to obtaining contact information.
  • Threaten violence.
  • Publish a record of your debt for any other party but credit reporting agencies.
