Tampa, Florida, Lawyers Fighting Against Creditor Harassment
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act says plainly that there are certain things a creditor can not do when attempting to collect a debt. When a creditor's behavior crosses the line into creditor harassment, debtors can sue and make them pay.

You Deserve Respect. You Have Rights. Exercise Them.
Just because you owe someone money, it doesn't give them the right to abuse, harass or intimidate you. You have rights. You can file a creditor harassment lawsuit if your creditors engage in any of the following acts:
- Physically or verbally abusing and intimidating you, including using threats and profane language
- Publishing your name as someone who refuses to pay debts (except to an authorized consumer reporting agency)
- Calling you on the phone repeatedly with the specific intent to harass, disturb and annoy you
- Lying about the amount you owe or the consequences for non-payment
Why Is Creditor Harassment So Common?
Even though creditor harassment is illegal, debt collectors engage in it with disturbing frequency. Why? Because it usually works — a debtor who has been successfully intimidated and harassed is not likely to file a lawsuit. This behavior will only stop when debtors everywhere begin standing up for their rights and holding creditors accountable.
