FDCPA

Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)

Know Your Debtor's Rights

The Fair Debt Collection Protection Act was added in 1978 as part of the Consumer Protection Act. It was written to protect consumers from abusive debt collection actions and to promote fair debt collection which includes protection against deceptive credit practices; and, to provide the means for debtors to dispute debt and obtain accurate information to validate debt.

Pierre, Attorney at Law, P.C. has been defending consumer's rights in the matter of debt collection and providing effective ways to improve their financial condition.
