Debt collectors – collection agencies, collection law firms, debt buyers, etc – cannot threaten to do anything that they:
1. Don’t intend to do; or 2. Can’t do.
It is illegal under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) to sue a consumer after the statute of limitations has expired.
We have seen many consumers intimidated into paying debts they don’t have to or that they don’t owe for fear of being sued by a debt collector.
Know your rights.
This is the best way to fight back against abusive law breaking debt collectors.
You are welcome to request our free book on “Stopping Abusive Collectors” which explains in more detail how to fight back against collectors that violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
