Jupiter Creditor Harassment Lawyer
There are few things worse than not having the money to meet your financial obligations and being hounded by creditors and collections agencies as a result. These companies often employ aggressive and intimidating practices, contacting you at all times of the day and night while making a variety of frightening threats. At the law firm of Nowack & Olson, PLLC, our Jupiter creditor harassment lawyers act as a strong legal advocate on your behalf in these situations. With over 40 years combined experience, we can effectively put a stop to their actions, while helping you find solutions to regain your financial security.
Are You Facing Creditor Harassment?
Many of us will end up facing financial difficulties at some point over the course of our lives, which can cause us to find behind in our monthly obligations. When illnesses, job losses, or family problems arise, your top priority is making sure your basic living expenses are met. This can mean falling behind on credit cards and in other loan payments. As a result, your account may be turned over to the company’s collections department or to a credit collection agency.
These companies can be merciless in their efforts to obtain payments and bring past due accounts up to date. Despite the fact that the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) prohibits credit collectors from hounding, harassing, or threatening consumers or their friends and family members, many still engage in the following types of practices:
- Calling early in the morning, late at night, or while your family is having dinner;
- Calling repeatedly, and attempting to contact you at work or school;
- Using abusive language, or making threats over the phone;
- Claiming to have the authority to take legal actions, such as calling the police, having you arrested, or seizing your property, which they have no right or actual intention of taking.
Dealing with these calls on a daily basis can take a toll on your overall health and well being, and can leave you feeling desperate to somehow resolve the situation. Before taking out additional loans or dipping into your savings or retirement funds, reach out and contact our Jupiter creditor harassment lawyers first.
