Has TekCollect ever used abusive or profane language when speaking with you on the phone? If so, TekCollect may be violating your legal rights. Stop the harassment.

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.
