Aggressive Debt Collectors

Aggressive Debt Collectors

This article seems to suggest that they are. Although this is bad news for borrowers, the law, fortunately, protects borrowers from overly aggressive debt collectors. Debt collectors that harass borrowers, contact borrowers at odd hours, or contact borrowers’ employers may be violating the Fair Debt Collection Act. If so, those debt collectors may be forced to pay borrowers $1,000 in damages. Additionally, without proper documentation, the debt may be discharged.
