Harassment Tactics by Bill Collectors

Consumers can sue creditors and collectors if they violate protections of the FDCPA. Some collection tactics include asking you for money, even after a bankruptcy “automatic stay” is in place.  When debt collectors call, leave messages, or mail material, it is helpful if you keep a log of these activities.  A persistent bill collector can become a real pain.  Until you are harassed by a debt collector, you may not realize that they get out of hand as often as they do.  In the process of debt collection, there are strict legal and ethical guidelines that must be followed.  If the agency trying to get money from you crosses the line, it’s your chance to take legal action against them. We hope to educate people about how to recognize illegal actions by creditors, as well as what your legal rights are as a consumer.  Stop collection calls and stop HarassmentEvery consumer has the right to sue a debt collector or collection agency for violating the FDCPA.  (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act)

Can a Debt Collector Sue Me?

Debt can follow you if it’s not paid or somehow resolved.  Therefore, a creditor, or debt collector, can absolutely sue a consumer who owes them money.  If a creditor wins judgment against you, it can be to garnish wages and can prevent you from owning or purchasing real estate. Banks have repossessed vehicles although the consumer was up to date in payments.  Filing bankruptcy can eliminate the liability of your judgement. Don’t think that it’s too late to file bankruptcy; you can do this at any stage.  Stop, or prevent creditors from taking your property or wages.  How can bankruptcy protect me?  Discuss bankruptcy with a Debt Advisors attorney if you’d like to learn more about that option.  Or, learn more about the damages you can collect in the FDCPA if you believe this is a better fit to your particular situation.

  • 5 star review  Mike Georg was extremely helpful during the entirety of my process. He made sure I understood exactly what was going to happen and he was always there to answer any questions I may have had. I really like the fact that I didn’t have to pay all out of pocket at once. Their payment plan made it easy for me to pay what I had to without breaking the bank. I’m completely satisfied with the level of professionalism that everyone in the office has. Even to this day I’m able to get in touch with them which I’m really grateful for. I’d definitely recommend them to my family and friends. If your someone who’s looking to get out of debt but are skeptical, you’ll have no worries here with Debt Advisors. The process is quick and easy.

  • 5 star review  I still remember the day when I started my bankruptcy back in 2016. I selected Debt Advisors because a good friend of mine had recommended Atty Mike Georg to me. After we met I was glad that I did select Debt Advisors for many reasons. Mainly, it was the professionalism and care that Mike and his staff showed me throughout the entire process. It felt good knowing that my situation would be taken care of efficiently and in a timely manner. Even after my bankruptcy was discharged Attorney Mike Georg and Debt Advisors have been there for me in 2018 and this 2020. Both times I've needed professional help with things like providing me with documents and forms that I've needed from my case. I strongly encourage anyone looking for debt consultation to visit Debt Advisors for help. They're great at what they do!

  • 5 star review  Bankruptcy is never fun, but this Law Office made it so much easier. If I ever had any questions at all they were answered timely. They even helped me through a rough time when I ended up having to pay taxes and had a big medical exspense too! They were always kind and never made me feel bad for having to do the bankruptcy. They were sympathetic to why and just helped me through it! I recommend them to anyone I know going through this or having to start this process. I know of two of the people I referred who used htem and loved them too! Thank you Debt Advisors Law Offices! Jeremy and Angel thank you personally!

  • 5 star review  I can confidently say that Debt Advisors is NOT in the business of taking advantage of you in your current situation. Debt Advisors is in the business of helping you get in a better place than you are now. I was there, constantly worrying about this large amount of debt that I owed. Feeling sick to my stomach and unable to sleep at night. Then I talked to Mike. He is genuine and honest. Having him in my corner took this huge weight off my chest. If you are in this place, I highly recommend giving Debt Advisors a call, it is the first step in the right direction.
