What is classified as unlawful behavior by the FDCPA?

According to the federal law enacted for the protection of your consumer rights (the FDCPA), a third-party debt collector, during the collection of a debt, is not allowed to use unfair practices to coerce a debt from you.

Examples of such unfair practices prohibited by the FDCPA include:

  • A debt collection organization trying to collect extra interests and charges in addition to the amount that you owe to them.
  • Messing up your payments by depositing a post-dated check too early
  • Failure to properly inform you about the debt and your right to dispute it
  • Employing the use of obscene, profane, unethical, and harassing words during their communications with you.

Furthermore, the Fair Debt Collection Practices act strongly frowns upon the use of false, deceptive, or misleading practices by debt collectors in the debt recovery process. Examples of such practices include:

  • Misrepresenting the details of your debt, including the amount that is owed, and any other important credit details
  • Debt collection officials falsely representing themselves as legal officials or police officers.
  • Issuing threats that are not within their power to carry out. Such threats include threats of bodily harm, arrest, or jail time.
  • Issuing threats to embark on illegal courses of action that the debt collector has no intention of pursuing.
  • Harassing you with an excessive amount of phone calls intended to annoy, harass, or shame you into the payment of your outstanding debts.

In addition to these federal laws that protect your consumer rights, each state usually has a slightly altered set of rules (alongside other federal laws) that are aimed at generally prohibiting debt collection practices that might be considered unfair, deceptive, or abusive towards the consumer.

It is also highly advisable to keep good records of your communications with a debt collector in case you will need to pursue any form of legal action in the future. For this reason, it is always a good idea to keep a file of all the letters, documents, and correspondence that you have received from a debt collector.

Additionally, retain copies of anything that you have also sent to a debt collector such as a cease-and-desist letter. Keep comprehensive notes that record the dates and times that conversations took place, alongside what was discussed. Also, keep records of any violations of your consumer rights committed by the other party. Keeping these records will come in handy in the case of a dispute with a debt collector or if you decide to retain legal counsel.

Understanding the regulations outlined in the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) regarding contacting family members is crucial for consumers navigating the debt collection process. Debt collectors must adhere to strict guidelines to protect consumers’ privacy and ensure fair treatment throughout the debt collection process. By knowing their rights and options for recourse, consumers can advocate for themselves and hold debt collectors accountable for any violations of the FDCPA.

Some common examples of debt collection harassment include:

  1. Repeated and Excessive Contact: Debt collectors may engage in relentless and excessive communication with consumers, including frequent phone calls, letters, emails, and text messages. This constant bombardment can be overwhelming and stressful, leading to anxiety, depression, and sleep disturbances.
  2. Threats and Intimidation: Debt collectors may use threatening language or intimidation tactics to coerce consumers into making payments on debts, even if they cannot afford to do so. This can include threats of legal action, wage garnishment, or repossession of assets.
  3. False or Misleading Statements: Debt collectors may make false or misleading statements to consumers in an attempt to pressure them into paying debts. This can include misrepresenting the amount owed, the consequences of non-payment, or the debt collector’s authority to take legal action.
  4. Harassment of Third Parties: Debt collectors may contact friends, family members, neighbors, or employers of the consumer in an attempt to shame or embarrass them into paying debts. This invasion of privacy and harassment of third parties is a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
  5. Exploitation of Vulnerability: Debt collectors may target vulnerable consumers, such as the elderly, individuals with disabilities, or those facing financial hardship, and exploit their vulnerabilities for financial gain. This can include taking advantage of cognitive impairment, language barriers, or lack of understanding of consumer rights.
