Southern Credit Recovery Debt Collection Harassment?

Southern Credit Recovery Debt Collection Harassment does not have to stress you out. Does your phone ring every day, several times per day? Has Southern Credit Recovery threatened you with legal action? Finally, do you wish there was a way to make the calls stop? You came to the right place. 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.

Success Stories

“What an amazing experience I had with Consumer Rights Law firm. I kept getting constant calls from a debt collector who was asking for someone I didn’t know. After explaining over and over I was not the person they were looking for, the calls still continued, it became frustrating and very annoying. I came across this firm and just called to talk to someone to see how I could get the calls to stop. I spoke to a gentleman that was very professional and very helpful. Not only did they get the calls to stop immediately, they were able to put some money in my pocket as well, Here’s the best thing, it cost me nothing for them to help me. They come highly recommended. Thank you Consumer Rights”
