Attorneys for Abusive Debt Collection in Philadelphia
Holding Creditors & Collectors Accountable
Trying to pay off debt is stressful enough. Enduring abusive debt collection tactics by creditors and debt collectors only adds more stress to an already difficult time. If you are being harassed by debt collectors, you need to know there are laws protecting you from such reprehensible behavior under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
Collections harassment, such as abusive or harassing phone calls, messages or threats of wage garnishments, is against the law. You deserve to be treated fairly and with respect. Otherwise, you may have a claim against the creditor or collection agency under the FDCPA. In some cases, consumers making an FDCPA claim are entitled to financial compensation.
