Austin Creditor Harassment Lawyer - Retired
Creditor Harassment Can Be StoppedCreditors are relentless. We have all heard horror stories of the extremes they will go to contact you and try to collect their debt, from constant telephone calls, to harassing and threatening messages, late night calls and even visits to your home, family, neighbors or work. You do not have to accept this ILLEGAL behavior!
Austin creditor harassment attorney Linda Rushing can help stop your creditors from:
- Calling you at work
- Calling at night
- Threatening to have you arrested
- Harassing your friends and family
- Coming to your house
Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), there are guidelines that creditors must follow when taking collections actions. For example, they may not call you at work. Calling you on a cell phone at work is probably okay. Just do not answer. Also, they may only call you at your home from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
If you want to stop creditor calls and harassment, contact the Texas law firm of M. Linda Rushing, PC. Attorney Linda Rushing can help make sure your creditors comply with the FDCPA guidelines and take action when they do not.
She can also help you determine if filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy would be a good option for you. By filing for bankruptcy, all creditor collection activities stop as soon as you file because of the automatic stay. The automatic stay just freezes time during the bankruptcy proceeding. It allows you to deal with the situation without continued contact and harassment.
