Nassau Debt Collections Abuse Attorney

Debt Collection Abuse in Nassau

Debt collectors must follow strict regulations when attempting to collect a debt. If they harass or decieve you, they can face legal action. 

Federal Law, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), lays out the rules and regulations in how  debt collectors can operate. 

Debt Collection Harassment in Nassau? Get Help.
All consumers should be aware of the rights afforded to them by the FDCPA so that they are not taken advantage of by a debt collector.

It is unlawful for a debt collector to:

  • falsely claim to be an attorney or other official;
  • falsely threaten to sue;
  • call early in the morning or late at night;
  • tell third parties about your debt;
  • falsely threaten to imprison you;
  • use profanities or other abusive language;
  • call or contact you repeatedly to harass.

The above lists only some of the actions which have been made illegal. Debt collectors may not do anything that is deceptive or harassing.

If you feel that you are being harassed by a debt collector, it is important that you contact a Nassau debt collections harassment  lawyer to determine whether to bring the the illegal actions to an immediate halt.  THe Law Office of Joseph Mauro is prepared to review your situation and advise you what can be done.  Filing a lawsuit can stop the harassing phone calls and letters, and consumers may be eligible to receive damages for the illegal debt collection practices and abuse.
