What's Wrong With Gerogia? Debt Collectors.
Jan. 16, 2017
There are a lot of things that Debt Collectors can't do. They can't:
Threaten you in any way
Say things that aren’t true
Call you with a Robo-dialer
Call you repeatedly
Call you at odd hours
Not stop calling after you ask them
Tell other people you know about your debt
Just because these things are prohibited by federal law though, doesn't always mean that they won;t happen. Debt Collectors should know what they can and cannot do. They are counting on consumers not knowing their rights.
Turns out that in a new report, consumers are filing a record number of complaints with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. What does this mean? It means that despite the law, despite enforcement actions by regulators, it is still happening. That is where private consumer protection attorneys come in.
