We have years of experience dealing with creditor harassment, and we know how to stop it as well as hold creditors responsible. The Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) forbids by law any debt collectors from abusing, deceiving, or manipulating debtors. With our bankruptcy experience, we can use your rights to stop creditors’ harassment for as long as your bankruptcy lasts.
What is creditor harassment?
Here are some of the behaviors that are protected against by the FDCPA:
- Failing to disclose their identity as someone who represents the debt collector or creditor.
- When dealing with creditors, threatening to commit a crime or use physical assault.
- When discussing with creditors, threatening to commit a crime or use physical assault.
- Constantly calling you in order to irritate you.
- Threatening you with negative consequences, such as incarceration, wage garnishment, or asset seizure without the legal right to do so.
- Advising you that your refusal to pay your debt is a criminal offense.
When you file for bankruptcy Bay City, A notice goes out to your debt collector. From that point on, creditors cannot contact you directly. They have to contact you through your attorney at Detroit Bankruptcy Law. We can use their creditor harassment violations as a defense if they sue you. There’s a chance that they’ll even have to pay you for damages.
How can bankruptcy fix this issue?
If you’re being pursued by debt collectors, bankruptcy is one of the best options available to you. An automatic stay is begun once you file for bankruptcy, and it ends any collection attempts until your debt is addressed.
