What is Debt Collector Harassment?

Is a debt collector calling you repeatedly? Do you feel like something is wrong with the correspondence between you and the collection rep?

Thankfully there was a law put in place that specifies exactly what a debt collection company can and cannot do in their attempts to recover debt from you. This law is called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act- FDCP.


This act states that debt collectors can not abuse, harass, intentionally annoy or lie to you. So what exactly are some examples of this harassment?

  • Calling you repeatedly. This all in the attempt to annoy and harass you or any of your family or friends they are contacting.
  • The use of obscene language. This is strictly prohibited. This is both unethical and immature of the collection agencies.
  • Use of false threats- especially telling you that they can harm you financially.
  • Publicly list out your name as an owner of debt- on websites or social networks.
  • When they call you, they must clearly identify themselves and the creditor that may have hired them.
