Los Angeles Lawyer Helping Victims of Aggressive Debt Collectors
Your Original Debt May Have Been Sold to a Collection Agency
In today’s economic times, companies are using many methods to improve their bottom
line. In cases where they have extended credit to consumers who are having trouble
paying, creditors often sell a consumer’s debt (such as medical debt, personal loans,
department store credit, and cell phone bills) to a third party. This third party
collection agency typically buys the debt a reduced amount of the original debt,
amount and will use significant resources to collect as much as possible. Unfortunately,
some debt collection companies use aggressive tactics or improperly trained employees,
and too often the people contacting debtors are harassing, abusive, and unfair to
consumers. Fortunately, Federal and California state statutes, the Fair Debt Collection
Practice Act (FDCPA) and the Rosenthal Act, respectively, protect consumers by allowing
victims to file legal actions against debt collectors who break the rules outlined
by the law.

You Have Rights Against Improper Debt Collection Practices
As a consumer, you may be entitled to monetary compensation if a third party debt
collector or specific collection agency is breaking the law when attempting to collect
a debt by any of the following tactics:
Harassment by continual phone calls, including after hours set by law
Abusive or profane language
Ignoring your specific written responses or requests regarding your debt
Misrepresenting the nature of the call, or the amount of debt owed
Disclosing your debt to unauthorized parties
Compensation Paid to Victims - No Upfront Money, No Recovery, No Fee
For every violation of federal and state law, consumers may receive up to $1000 from
companies that practice illegal debt collection methods. Other monetary damages by
also be awarded. The law also states that when a consumer’s legal action is successfully
tried in court, all attorney fees are paid by the violating debt collector. This
means that my clients do not pay me unless I can recover money for them in debt collection
violation legal actions.
