Debt Collectors – Debt Collection Laws and How They Work

Have you ever wondered how debt collectors can be so callous and uncaring?  Have you ever tried to talk to a collector like a normal person, only to be insulted or put down?  In the article found at the link below, a reporter went undercover at a collection company to find out how they operate.  Collectors are trained to do whatever it takes to get you to pay – humiliate you, insult you, give you bad financial advice, imply that they will have you or a family member arrested…  The list goes on and on.

If you find yourself being hounded by debt collectors, remember that you have rights when it comes to debt collection laws.  A federal law known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act puts limits on what debt collectors can and cannot do when attempting to collect a debt from you.  To learn more, contact the Law Office of Emily Gomez today.
