Dealing with Abusive Debt Collectors? We’ve Got Your Back 🚫💰

Debt Collectors Harassing You? Know Your Rights

Being hounded by aggressive debt collectors can feel like a nightmare; with constant calls, letters, and threats leaving you feeling stressed and overwhelmed. But don’t worry, you‘ve got rights – and we’re here to protect them.At Spodek Law Group, we’re experts at shutting down abusive debt collection practices. Our top-notch federal lawyers have over 50 years of combined experience taking on shady debt collectors and agencies that overstep their bounds.We get it, owing money sucks – but that doesn’t give them the green light to harass you 24/7. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) prohibits debt collectors from using abusive, deceptive, or unfair practices when trying to collect a debt. And we’ll make sure they play by the rules.

Common Illegal Debt Collection Tactics

Debt collectors have a bad rap for a reason – many resort to some seriously sketchy (and illegal) tactics to try and squeeze money out of consumers. Here are some common red flags that a debt collector has crossed the line:

- -
  • Calling you before 8am or after 9pm
  • Contacting you at work after being told not to
  • Using profane, abusive, or threatening language
  • Lying about the amount you owe or their authority
  • Threatening legal action they can’t actually take
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors

If any of those sound familiar, it’s time to lawyer up. The FDCPA protects consumers from harassment and abuse – but enforcing those protections often requires taking legal action.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Protects Your Rights

Dealing with debt is hard enough without shady collectors making your life miserable through illegal harassment and deception. That‘s why the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) exists – to protect consumers from abusive, unfair, or deceptive debt collection practices.Under the FDCPA, debt collectors are prohibited from doing things like:

  • Calling you before 8am or after 9pm
  • Contacting you at work if you’ve told them not to
  • Using profane, abusive, or threatening language
  • Lying about how much you owe or their legal authority
  • Threatening legal action they can’t actually take
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors upfront

Basically, they have to be honest and treat you with respect. If they cross those lines through harassment or deception, you may have grounds to sue them for money damages.

Common Illegal Debt Collection Tactics to Watch Out For

Unfortunately, many unscrupulous debt collectors routinely violate the FDCPA through abusive and deceptive tactics designed to intimidate consumers into paying up. Here are some common red flags:Incessant Calling – Repeated phone calls at all hours, even after you’ve asked them to stop, is a violation of the FDCPA’s calling time restrictions.Profanity and Threats – Debt collectors can‘t use profane language or threaten violence, harm, or illegal acts against you. That’s considered abusive behavior.Impersonation – Some sketchy collectors pretend to be law enforcement, attorneys, or government officials to scare you into paying. That‘s a deceptive practice.Inflating Amounts – It’s illegal for collectors to misrepresent how much you owe through inflated fees, interest, or other charges not permitted by law or your agreement.Empty Threats – Threatening legal action like wage garnishment, property seizure, or arrest when they have no grounds to do so violates the FDCPA.If you recognize any of these tactics being used against you, it’s a huge red flag that your rights are being violated. Don’t ignore it – speak to a consumer protection lawyer right away.

What to Do if Debt Collectors Violate Your Rights

If you’re being harassed or deceived by abusive debt collectors, it‘s crucial to document everything and consult a consumer protection lawyer right away. The more evidence you can provide of FDCPA violations, the stronger your case will be.Here are some tips on what to do:

  • Keep a log of all calls, with dates, times, callers, and details of what was said
  • Save any letters, emails, texts or voicemails from the debt collector
  • Get caller ID info and record calls if your state allows it
  • Send them a letter demanding they stop contacting you
  • Don’t engage with them or provide any info until you’ve spoken to a lawyer

Having detailed records of the harassment and illegal conduct will allow your attorney to build a rock-solid case against the abusive debt collector. Don’t delay – the sooner you take action, the better your chances of getting the behavior to stop and recovering damages.At Spodek Law Group, we offer free, confidential consultations to review potential FDCPA violations.

What Damages Can You Recover for FDCPA Violations?

If a debt collector has violated your rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act through harassment or deception, you may be entitled to significant monetary damages, including:

  • Actual Damages – Compensation for any out-of-pocket expenses caused by the illegal conduct, like costs of changing your phone number, medical bills for stress/anxiety, etc.
  • Statutory Damages – The FDCPA allows for up to $1,000 in statutory damages per violation, even if you didn’t suffer actual financial losses.
  • Emotional Distress – You can recover damages for emotional distress, anxiety, and mental anguish caused by the abusive collection practices.
  • Attorney Fees – If you win your case, the debt collector has to pay your reasonable attorney fees and court costs.
  • Punitive Damages – In cases of particularly egregious or malicious violations, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the collector.

The exact amount you could recover depends on the specific violations and severity of the harassment. But rest assured, our skilled litigators will fight aggressively to maximize your compensation.We’ve secured countless six and seven-figure verdicts and settlements against abusive debt collectors on behalf of clients, including this $300k settlement and this $49 million verdict.
