You owe the money, but you do not deserve to be harassed and hounded by those who are responsible for attempting to collect the debt. Under both Florida law and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, there are protections in place for individuals that owe money to lenders.
Often times, these lenders will harass and intimidate debtors at all hours of the day and night and often times on their cell phones. These debt collectors will also call friends and family, bothering them too. Fortunately, there are legal protections in place if you owe money and are being harassed.
Here at the Harland Law Firm we can help you recover money if you are subject to this harassment. Under the law, you may be entitled to up to $1,500 for every unwanted call made to you on your cell phone. This can add up quickly as many debt collectors call many times a day, even after being informed to cease and desist their collection harassment.
If you wish to discuss your legal rights concerning unwanted harassment on a debt you owe, call us for a consultation.
