Port Huron, you have rights for how to settle with debt collectors and to stop harassment by creditors!

A common tactic that creditors and debt collectors use to recover money from you is to consistently harass and embarrass you. Are you being intimidated and harassed by creditors? Does it seem like your debt is being discussed with employers and others? Are creditors trying to coerce you to pay your debt? If any of these things are happening to you, please get in touch with us to set up a free consultation. We’re one of the leading creditor harassment law firms in Port Huron.

We have a wealth of experience in situations like this. We know to get harassing creditors to stop and how to hold them accountable for their actions. The Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) forbids by law your debt collectors from using abusive, manipulative, or misleading behavior to try and collect your debts.

If you’ve ever wondered how you can stop those harassing phone calls from creditors, let us help you exercise your rights under the FDCPA. We also have a specialty in bankruptcy, and we can help you use it to put a hold on creditors’ collection calls and letters during your period of bankruptcy.

What is creditor harassment?

There are plenty of ways that creditors try to collect debts which qualify as harassment Port Huron. Here are some actions that you are protected from under the FDCPA:

  • Threatening to commit a crime or use physical force against you.
  • Threatening aggressive action against you, like having you jailed, garnishing your wages, or seizing your assets without the proper legal authority.
  • Telling you that your failure to repay your debt is justifiable in court - this is not true.
  • Constantly calling to harass and bother you.
  • Refusing to disclose their identity as someone who represents the debt collector or creditor.
