Stop Amos Financial Phone Harassment!
Is Amos Financial harassing you with constant phone calls?
Creditors find it easier and oftentimes cheaper to transfer the responsibility of pursuing the debts owed to them to a collection agency. This is because collection agencies have the experience, resources and tools required to track down a debtor and discuss their debts. Third-party debt collectors are able to find debtors even when they have moved to a new location or changed their numbers.
Some of the strategies debt collectors employ include: calling the friends and family of the debtor to ask for their number (they are not allowed to disclose information about the debt to the friends and family), calling the workplace of the debtor, stalking the debtor on social media, or even showing up at the debtor’s residence or place of employment.
Debt collectors employ numerous strategies in a bid to get people to pay their debts. Some of these strategies are fair and lawful while others are not. If a debt collector is being rude, insensitive, and insulting to you, they’re breaking the law.
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act is a federal law put in place to regulate the activities of third-party debt collectors. According to the FDCPA, debt collectors should never employ unfair, deceptive and abusive debt collection methods. When a debt collector begins to call you many times a day, call you at odd hours, harass your family or friends, threaten you with lawsuits or physical harm, they are violating your rights under the FDCPA and you should contact us now to get legal help.
Can Amos Financial garnish my wages?
One of the things debtors are most concerned about is whether a collection agency can garnish their wages.
Debt collectors can be scary and intimidating. They say a lot of things to debtors just to get them to pay up faster, most of which are just threats and can not actually be acted upon according to the provisions of the law. If a debt collector is threatening to garnish your wages, it is most likely just a threat, that is, except they have filed a lawsuit against you in a court of law. No debt collector has the right to garnish a debtor’s wages on their own, except they have the backing of the law.
The only way a debt collector can garnish your wages is if they sue you to court and win a lawsuit against you and the court grants them permission to garnish your wages. Everything outside of this is just a threat and a violation of your rights under the FDCPA.
Can Amos Financial send me to jail?
Threatening to send debtors to jail is one tactic that debt collectors use often. People are thrown into a state of panic and fear when they hear debt collectors issue such threats.
This is why debtors need to be aware of what a debt collector can and can not do to them, by reading about the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. According to federal laws, a debt collector cannot send a debtor to jail over a debt. Any debt collector telling you that they will send you to jail is threatening you and that is prohibited by the FDCPA. Being in debt is not a crime and therefore should not be treated as such.
