Top 5 things that count as harassment from a debt collector
- Impersonating court officials, the police, or a government agency
Under the FDCPA, debt collectors may not misrepresent themselves as court officials, the police, or a government agency. They are also prohibited from sending you documents that are deliberately made to resemble court orders.
Debt collectors have no right to accuse people of criminal activities or fraud; they also don’t have the right to say that a person will be arrested and face criminal charges over the non-payment of their debts. You have the right to sue a debt collector for misconduct if they are guilty of this practice.
- Making threats that they cannot or will not carry out
The debt collector contacting you over your Bedfordfair.com credit card is prohibited from trying to scare or threaten you into paying the debts you owe to Bedford fair.
Thus, they are prohibited from making statements about getting you arrested or implying that you are a criminal.
Collection agencies have nothing to do with the police or with issuing arrest warrants; additionally, your delinquent Bedford fair/Comenity card debt does not equate to you being a criminal, thus they cannot put you behind bars.
The only ways your debt may land you in jail are:
- If you miss a court hearing and the judge issues a warrant for your arrest.
- If you don’t pay a debt-related court fine.
- If you fail to pay taxes or child support.
- Defame your character
Shaming you into paying your Bedford fair credit card debt is not a valid collection strategy. The debt collector may not try to publicly shame you by publicizing your image, personal information, or by revealing sensitive details about your debts to unauthorized third parties.
The only parties authorized to know about your Bedford fair credit card debt are your spouse (in some cases), your attorney, your parents (in the case of a minor), and your co-signor.
- Try to collect a debt that is not legally enforceable
Whether knowingly or accidentally, some debt collectors may try to collect a debt that is in excess of the amount actually owed on your Bedford fair account. Some collectors may even try to sue you over a debt that has exceeded the statute of limitations or get you to restart the clock on the debt through various dubious means. All these are violations of the FDCPA.
If your debt has been transferred several times, chances are that the details could get mixed up and so the collector contacting you about the Bedford fair debt may have some inaccurate information. Request validation of the debt and ensure that it is correct, yours, and legally enforceable before you even agree to make a payment.
