New York Collections Defense Attorney

Collections Defense Cases

When you fall behind in payments to creditors, your account will often be assigned to a debt collection agency to recover any money that is owed.   This can result in never-ending phone calls and letters demanding payment, legal threats and even deceptive behavior to get you to pay your bill.  The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) was enacted in the late 1970s to prevent collections abuses.  The laws contained in this Act not only govern the activities of debt collectors, they give consumers various debt collection rights and protections.  The FDCPA also includes penalties such as fines and imprisonment for debt collectors that violate these statutes.

The worry and stress of financial problems can be made significantly worse by illegal debt collection practices.  A New York bankruptcy attorney is familiar with FDCPA guidelines and should be contacted immediately for competent legal advice if you are being harassed by a debt collector.
