The Law Protects You From Abusive Creditor Actions

You may be behind on paying your bills, but that does not give creditors the green light to abuse you. In fact, the law prohibits creditors from using abusive debt collection practices. This traces back to 1977 When the Fair Debt Collection Practice Act was passed. Creditors are legally prohibited from using deceptive, abusive or unfair collection techniques. Debtors can also ask creditors for validation to ensure any collection efforts are legitimate.

To further support fair debt collection practices, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act was passed in 1991. Telemarketers have specific guidelines to follow and are restricted from using automated telephone equipment. Attorney James C. Warr is highly familiar with the practices creditors are responsible to follow. He will aggressively pursue remedies for clients when creditors violate fair debt collection practices

Holding Creditors Accountable For Violating the Automatic Stay

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court takes creditor harassment and misconduct very seriously. A bankruptcy judge can levy fines and other contempt of court sanctions against creditors and bill collectors who ignore the bankruptcy stay.

Debtors can also seek civil relief under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The FDCPA allows individuals to sue third-party collection agents for up to $1,000 in statutory damages for each instance of harassment, plus attorney fees. Debtors can also sue creditors and credit reporting agencies for monetary damages for failing to indicate that debts were discharged in bankruptcy.

In most cases, filing for bankruptcy stops creditor harassment, period. If they persist, Warren attorney James C. Warr will pursue a big settlement to take them to task.
