Understanding your Debt Collection Rights
If you are being contacted by a debt collector you should know that there are certain rules and requirements that debt collectors must follow. The rules are laid out in a law passed by Congress called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or the FDCPA. The FDCPA states that within five days after the debt collector contacts you for the first time, they are required to send you a written notice with certain information. The information must include specifics about the debt and inform you how to access more information about the debt. It must also notify you of your right to dispute the debt within 30 days. If the debt collector does not provide this written notice within the required time period, then they may be in violation of the FDCPA. For violations of the FDCPA, consumers can recover up to $1,000 in statutory damages, plus attorney fees and court costs.
