Penn Credit Debt Collection Harassment

Tired of Penn Credit Debt Collection Harassment? Wish there was a way to make the calls stop? Is Penn Credit constantly calling and harassing you? Does your phone ring every day, several times per day, because Penn Credit is calling you to demand payment? Threatening you with legal action? Has Penn Credit ever used abusive or profane language when speaking with you on the phone? If so, Penn Credit may be violating your legal rights. Stop the harassment.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, also known as the FDCPA, protects consumers’ rights in the context of debt collection. In other words, debt collectors must adhere to a certain set of rules when they are pursuing consumers who owe money. If a collector violates the FDCPA, you can sue the collector in court. The law allows consumers who have been victims of harassment from debt collectors to get the calls to stop in addition to recover statutory damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.
