Stop Debt Collection Abuse!

Don’t Let Them Beat Up Your Mother!

I recently settled a suit against a debt collection company because it was calling the client’s mother. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act allows debt collectors to call relatives “for the purpose of locating the debtor”. However, in this case the debt collector went too far. After being told that the mother didn’t know where the debtor was the agency then called the mother seven times over a four day period! This was clearly beyond “location” and fell into harassment. The agency paid $1,000.00 to the mother, plus my attorneys fees.

If you, or one of your relatives, is being harassed by debt collectors please call my office, at (248) 432-1612 for a free consultation.
