You Have Rights. We Can Protect You.
State and federal law restricts what actions creditors and collections agencies can take in order to collect a debt. For example, the federal Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices — Consumer Protection Act (DTPA) prevent creditors from using many underhanded tactics, such as:
- Pretending to be what they are not (saying they are a lawyer or a member of a law enforcement agency);
- Calling your home after 9 p.m.;
- Contacting a neighbor, friend, family member or boss to discuss your debt;
- Threatening to call the police or stating that you will go to jail unless you pay (there are no debtors’ prisons in America);
- Trying to collect a debt that has been paid or discharged;
- Trying to collect in excess of the amount of debt that is owed plus authorized fees;
- Threatening to sell or repossess your property without proper court proceedings;
- Use of threatening or obscene language or taking any actions intended to annoy, harass or threaten your family.
The moment you feel you are being harassed or threatened by a creditor or debt collector, you should contact our attorneys who can put an end to the abuse. At Pelley Law Office, L.L.P., we do not put up with creditor harassment. We can make the phone calls stop.
