A Los Angeles Lawyer to Help You Get Compensated for Violations
Federal law under the FDCPA protects consumers. If a debt collector has violated
the FDCPA when trying to collect a debt, wether you actually owe the debt or not,
you can receive actual damages plus a statutory penalty of up to $1,000.00 per violation.
If you win your claim, the debt collector pays the attorney fees and court costs.
If your claim is not settled, you pay nothing. Contact me, attorney Jonathan Leventhal,
at the Leventhal Law Group by sending an email or call 818-346-5800 to learn more
about building a case against illegal debt collection practices. I offer free consultations.
Ten Things the the FDCPA Says that Third Party Debt Collectors Cannot Do
1. Ask you to pay more than you owe or misrepresent what you owe. This includes asking
you to pay interest, fees, or expenses that are not actually allowed.
A credit reporting agency, responsible for your credit score information
Your spouse or your parent (if you are a minor)
6. Repeatedly call a third party (such as friends, family, or your employer) to get
your location information, unless the debt collector has reason to believe the location
you provided previously is false.
7. Contact you at work, knowing your employer doesn't approve.
8. Fail to send a written debt validation notice (with debt amount, creditor name,
and your right to dispute with 30 days) within five days of their initial communication
9. Ignore your written request to verify the debt and continue to collect without
10. Continue their collection attempts after receiving a written cease communication
notice from you. They may send you information about the debt and further actions
