Debt Collection Harassment is illegal.
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act says debt collectors can’t harass, oppress, or abuse you or anyone else they contact.
This means they can’t:
- § Make repeated phone calls that are intended to annoy, abuse, or harass you or anyone answering the phone
- § Use obscene or profane language
- § Make threats of violence or harm
For servicemembers, this also means debt collectors can’t:
§ Tell your chain of command that you owe a debt
§ Threaten you with prosecution under the Uniform Code of Military Justice
§ Threaten an action they are not authorized to pursue, such as revoking your security clearance or getting you demoted
If you believe a debt collector is harassing you, Pine Street Legal will get justice for you.
