This illegal behavior includes:
- To begin with, contacting you at any time of the day, including late night or early morning. Visiting you at places you have not allowed access to, such as your workplace or residence
- Making threats of harming you in person or abusing you over the telephone verbally
- Threatening you with legal action which may not be applicable to your case at all

- Passing on information about your debt to another person; informing the person who answers the phone or your door about your debt
- Leaving a message regarding details of your debt with friends, relatives or neighbors
- Not informing you that the responsibility of collecting your debt has been handed over to a debt collection agency
- Another violation would be communicating about your debt on social networks like Facebook
- Producing paperwork that implies that your debt is now a police or court matter
- Suggesting ways in which you can pay off the debt, including selling your home or taking on another line of credit
- Posing as an officer of the court. Misrepresenting their identity
- Above all threats to have you arrested or to take away your property for fulfillment of the debt
- Indulging in unfair practices, such as depositing a post-dated check before the due date
