If you are a creditor seeking legal representation regarding a debt collection matter, there are a few things you should know when consulting with an attorney. The team of experienced Fishers debt collection attorneys at Massillamany Jeter & Carson LLP know how to help.

Laws Surrounding Debt Collection

Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), a debt collector is someone who regularly collects debts owed to others. This includes collection agencies, lawyers who collect debts on a regular basis, and companies that buy delinquent debts to try and collect them. Not all debt collectors are subject to the Act. It does not apply to banks, other lenders, or businesses that collect their own accounts using their own names, nor does it cover them when they collect an isolated debt for another.

The FDCPA applies to debts such as:

  • Personal, family, and household debts
  • Personal credit cards
  • Auto loans
  • Medical bills
  • Mortgage

How Debtors Are Protected

The Federal Trade Commission prohibits debt collectors from using abusive, unfair, or deceptive practices to collect from you. Debt collectors can contact you by phone, letter, email, or text message to collect a debt so long as they follow the rules and disclose that they are debt collectors. No matter how they communicate with you, it’s against the law for a debt collector to pretend to be someone else — like an attorney or government agency — or to harass, threaten or deceive you.
