One issue we repeatedly hear from Alabama consumers is what are my rights when I’m contacted by a debt collector trying to collect on a seven or ten year old debt. The FTC has put out a two page pdf on this very subject. We recommend looking at this FTC publication if you have been contacted about an old debt.
It is always good to have solid information as you deal with what often times are abusive collection agencies. We hope this FTC publication helps you to be on more solid ground when dealing with collectors trying to collect ancient or “zombie” debt.
Another resource for you is to join our Facebook Fan Page – Alabama Consumer Protection Attorneys where we share useful information about the same types of issues that we cover in this blog.
