Just because you owe a debt, it doesn't give a debt collector or collection agency the right to treat you unfairly!
Nearly all States have enacted Fair Debt Collection Statutes
to regulate debt collection, these laws mirror the protections offered to consumers in the
Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
In addition to making bad debt collectors stop their
collection efforts against you, Fair Debt Collection Laws and other related consumer protection statutes can provide victims
of debt collection abuse monetary damages of up to $1,000.00! In certain cases, additional damages can be awarded to a victim
for malicious misconduct or intentional harm caused by the debt collector. And the debt collector pays your attorney's fees!
