CREDITOR HARASSMENT AND FAIR DEBT COLLECTION
Brandon, Florida, Lawyers Fighting Against

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.
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
