Typical prohibited debt collector practices

If you have debt, you may have experienced how annoying debt collectors can be. Because they hold a lot of power, they often think they can get away with irritating and abusive behavior. But, you still have rights even when in debt. Below are some of the usual ways in which creditors take advantage of people.

What can I do to stem my debt after losing my job?

The loss of a job can bring a variety of challenges and stresses. Of course, your primary concern is getting back into the workforce as soon as possible. But in the meanwhile, you will likely need to take some proactive steps to minimize your debt until things turn around for you.

What debt collectors can and can't do

No one goes into debt with the intention of never paying it back, but sometimes life intervenes. An unexpected illness or job loss can make it difficult to keep up with bills, and once you fall behind, it can feel like an exercise in futility trying to catch up. On top of that stress, you have to deal with constant letters and phone calls from creditors, who often try to make you feel like a criminal for being in debt. They may even resort to illegal tactics to scare you into paying. Thankfully, we have the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, which protects debtors from harassment.
