What is the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act?

The Debt Collection Practices Act regulates how creditors can collect your debt. They may not utilize harassment to get their money. Tactics classified as harassment include:

  • Threaten to sue you over your debt
  • Placing multiple phone calls to your work and home
  • Contacting you in person
  • Coming into your place of work
  • Lying about their identity to scare you

Debt creditors also can’t make phone calls to your home or office before 8 AM, after 9 AM, or with clear intent to annoy you into paying, that includes calling more than one day in a row. Although it may seem like there is no way for you to get debt relief, you don’t have to take creditor harassment. Call The Pope Firm for a free consultation for debt or bankruptcy relief.

 

Stop Unlawful Debt Collection

One way to stop debt creditor harassment is to get an automatic stay.  While a lawsuit is expensive and time-consuming, an automatic stay stops debt collectors quickly. However, you will need a qualified bankruptcy attorney to file an automatic stay in Tennessee.

Bankruptcy is another option to force a creditor to stop attempting to collect a debt from you. Once you file, the creditor, or creditors, if there is more than one, can’t take any more action against you. Bankruptcy relief in Tennessee allows you to work with a debt relief agency to lower your payments and work out a reasonable payment plan.
