There are many laws that prevent debt collection agencies to harass people – but it does not seem to be stopping them. Every day debt collection companies in Tampa and abroad are coming up with new ways to harass the people who might owe money. Even if you do indeed owe money to a company – this does not give the companies the right to harass you.
What is considered harassment by the collection agencies?
There are a number of ways debt collection companies harass everyday people whether you live in Tampa or not – some people do not even realize they are being harassed but just think it is a part of owing money to a company. This couldn’t be any farther from the truth. A sure way to know if you are being overly contacted to the point of harassment is answering yes to any of the following:
- Receiving calls past 9 pm or before 8 am?
- Being threatened verbally using profanity?
- Being falsely told you will lose your wages?
- Even after repeatedly telling the debt collectors to stop calling, they continue?
If you have said yes to any of the previous questions, then you are potentially being harassed and you may have a case ready to go. This is where we come in.
