The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act is a federal law passed to protect consumers from unfair, deceptive, and harassing practices engaged by unscrupulous collectors of consumer debt. The law applies to most collection agencies. When you are contacted by a debt collector, the agency must follow certain legal rules. 

What Rules Must Debt Collectors Follow?


  • For instance, after initially contacting you, the collector must provide in writing within five days how much you owe as well as to whom it is owed. 
  • You then have a 30-day grace period in which you can dispute the debt or a portion of it in writing. 
  • During this grace period, the debt collector must also provide you with the contact information of the original creditor if the current debt is owed to another entity.

What Is Prohibited by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act?

Are you unsure if your experiencing creditor harassment that is in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act?

Examples of Credit Harassment That Are Prohibited Under This Law Include:


  • Contacting you before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m.
  • Contacting you at work when you have expressly asked the collector not to
  • Discussing your debt with relatives, friends, employers, or other third parties
  • Using abusive language
  • Threatening you with violence
  • Making continuous calls in an effort to harass, upset, or annoy you
  • Making false statements or representations, such as claiming to be an attorney, a government official, such as an IRS agent, or claiming to be some other law enforcement agent when the collector is not
