While debt collectors have many options available to recover the money that is owed to them or the creditors they represent, it does not give them carte blanche to use any means they see fit. The law is very specific regarding how bill collectors can do their jobs and the possible consequences of overstepping their authority.
Sections 600, 601 and 602 of New York General Business Law, as well as the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), provide clear guidelines about permissible debt collection practices and those that are not. Practices that are not permissible include contacting someone too early, too late or too frequently, the use of abusive or threatening language, making threats of legal actions the person does not have the authority to take, and many others.
If a debt collector is violating your rights, do not allow yourself to be intimidated. Take action by contacting a reliable Syracuse debt collector harassment attorney.
