What is creditor harassment?
Creditors are well aware of the FDCPA, so they know when they are violating your rights. They are just hoping that you aren’t aware of these rights so that they can get away with it. Keep an eye out for any of these things which the FDCPA has declared are forms of Westland creditor harassment:
- 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 discussing with creditors, threatening to commit a crime or use physical assault.
- Constantly calling you in order to irritate you.
- When dealing with creditors, threatening to commit a crime or use physical assault.
- Failing to disclose their identity as someone who represents the debt collector or creditor.

The automatic stay that comes with bankruptcy makes it illegal for a creditor to contact you in any way at all and they can’t attempt collection either. Anything they want to say to you, they have to tell your lawyer at Detroit Bankruptcy Law instead. If they were willing to break the law the first time, they may still ignore that talking to you at that point is illegal. However, if they do, they are only making your case for Westland creditor harassment that much stronger. With all of the evidence against them, we should be able to win a creditor harassment lawsuit against them, meaning they’ll have to pay you money.
Can bankruptcy fix this issue?
