How to Stop a Creditor From Swearing at Me!

Did you know that in the state of Florida it is a violation of the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act (FCCPA) section 559.72 (8) for a creditor to swear at you or a family member?

This protection exists even if the collector is from out of state as all collection agencies are required to register with the state of Florida before contacting it’s citizens in an attempt to collect a debt.

If you live in Florida and a creditor does contact you using profane or vulgar language, you can sue them under the FCCPA. If you would like to discuss the quality of your case and see what we might be able to do for you, contact a Jacksonville Bankruptcy Lawyer or call us at (904) 685-1200 for a free consultation.
