THE FDCPA PROTECTS CONSUMERS LIKE YOU!
Just because you’re behind in paying your bills, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have rights. Owing money does not mean collectors can treat you like a criminal!
1 in 3 adults in America have debt in collections, and the federal government has passed laws creating rights for people who owe money and governing how debt collectors must act. If a debt collector or creditor is found to have violated your rights, you could be eligible for a cash settlement!
Many of these rights are incorporated in something called the FDCPA, or the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. If you have experienced one of the following common FDCPA violations, then you may be able to sue a debt collector and make them pay you!
