HOW TO DEAL WITH DEBT COLLECTOR HARASSMENT

Taking legal action against a harassing debt collector can often produce a cessation of the harassing contacts and allow the consumer to focus on managing the payment process. Tarshish Cody PLC lawyers believe that consumers who owe money deserve to be treated respectfully and according to the law under the Fair Debt Collection Act. Invoking your legal rights may not make the debt disappear, but it can allow consumers the respectful relationship with a creditor the law demands.

Consumers should keep a record of phone calls, emails, letters, voicemails, and visits from debt collectors. If third parties have been approached, list those contacts as well. These records can be used to stop the harassment tactics. Often harassing practices by debt collectors are designed to create stress in the lives of consumers in order to make them succumb to the pressures of harassing tactics.
