Fair Debt Collection Laws in a Nutshell
Contrary to what you may have experienced, debt collection efforts are strictly regulated by State and federal law. Fair debt collection laws set forth permissible and impermissible methods for debt collectors when collecting consumer debt, for example, the collector may not harass you, contact you at inconvenient times or places, or after being told to stop. Although violations of these laws do not "wipe away" legitimate debts, such violations do require mandatory monetary compensation to you for the damages suffered plus an additional amount up to $1,000. Your reasonable attorney fees and court costs must also be paid by the collector if you prevail.
