Ventura Collections Defense Attorney
Are you a victim of illegal debt collection tactics?
Complaints about unscrupulous debt collectors and illegal debt collection activities have been a longstanding problem in the United States. As consumers become more educated, more and more are turning to debt collection defense to protect their consumer rights.
At Bryan Diaz Law, P.C., we are intimately familiar with the consumer debtor protections established under the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA). We know what creditors can and cannot do, and what types of behaviors warrant legal action.
If you are being harassed, abused, or otherwise wronged by illegal debt collection activities, you can turn to our firm for honest and aggressive legal representation.
Invoke Your Rights Under the FDCPA
Even if you legitimately owe a debt, it does not mean that bill collectors have the right to use dishonest, unfair, deceptive or harassing methods to collect money from you. If they do engage in such behaviors, you can contact a Sacramento bankruptcy attorney from our firm to help make them stop.
There is no question that illegal debt collection practices can cause emotional distress, and it can increase the pressure to the point where debtors have to choose between paying their late bills and paying for necessities such as groceries, gasoline, and prescription drugs.
Examples of what creditors cannot do under the FDCPA:
- Talk to third parties about your debt.
- Use verbally abusive language.
- Call you before 8:00 am or after 9:00 pm.
- Cause your phone to ring continuously.
