Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
Thanks to the Internet, many people who are living under difficult debt are familiar with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). The FDCPA offers consumers a wide range of protections against many of the abusive and harassing techniques that debt collectors formerly, and in some instances continue to, employ. Some of the common prohibitions that people may be aware of include:
- Calling your work repeatedly
- Threatening you with arrest
- Using abusive language
