Credit Harassment Archives

What information is a debt collector required to provide?

Any person contacting you claiming that you owe money on a debt is required by law to give you certain information about the debt owed. A debt collector must tell you the name of the creditor (the person/entity who is owed money), the amount of money owed to the creditor, and how you can dispute the debt or seek verification that the debt is accurate. During the initial contact, if the debt collector is unable to provide you with this information, the debt collector is required by law to send you notice in writing of this information within five days of the first contact.

Debt Collectors Aren't Above the Law

Sometimes people get behind on a bill or can't pay a debt. With the recent economic decline, this is truer than ever. When you get behind on a payment, you may be contacted by a debt collector to pursue what you owe. Unfortunately, not every debt collector follows the law and simply because you owe money to someone doesn't mean a debt collector can harass or threaten you.
