Threatening Wage Garnishment

Seems like now-a-days it is getting harder and harder to make ends meet. When it comes to paying bills, some people have to pick and choose what they need to pay to make it through the month. This is giving the debt collection agencies a lot more reasons to start calling and harassing people.

At Elkin-Peck PLLC who services the Brandon area, we hear a lot of harassing stories that these debt collectors put people through. The most recent one has been that they will call and threaten to immediately garnish your wages – even though you have never been sued. This is not something they are able to do. Even knowing this they let people believe that they will be losing their hard earned money which is terrifying, especially considering they are already behind on their current bills. These people are already struggling and these harassing debt collection agencies are not making it any easier.

I feel that I am being harassed by debt collectors, what should I do?

The first thing you should do is hire an attorney at Elkin-Peck PLLC who knows about debt collection harassment in Brandon. We specialize in getting you the justice that you deserve. No one deserves to be harassed, no matter if you missed a bill. You still have the right to live in your life without being threatened of losing your wages or being spoken to in an unkind manner. Debt collection harassment is a real problem. These debt collection companies need to be reminded of the strict laws they are supposed to be abiding by.

No matter how much or how little you owe to any company – these harassing calls from debt collectors are just not right. Understandably companies want to get paid, which is why they sell your debt to debt collection companies – who are usually the ones that are calling multiple times a day to receive a profit on their purchase. Some of these companies take ‘receiving a profit’ to an entirely new illegal level.

Calling and pretending to be attorneys, calls at all hours, and even threatening to garnish your wages without prior judicial process. All complete lies . . . all completely illegal. Let Elkin-Peck PLLC located close to Brandon take back what is rightfully yours – which is your right to live a peaceful life and not be afraid of constant harassment from debt collectors.
