I Received A Discharge In Bankruptcy, But The Creditor Keeps Contacting Me. What Should I Do?

If the debt was properly listed on your bankruptcy schedules and subsequently discharged, the creditor no longer has the right to collect that debt from you. If the creditor is continuing to harass you, you should have your Jacksonville Bankruptcy Attorneywrite a cease and desist letter to the creditor. This usually cures the problem and the creditor will stop contacting you. If, however, the creditor continues to try and collect the debt, this is illegal and your Jacksonville Bankruptcy Attorney will file a complaint against them for possible discharge violations, FDCPA violations, FCCPA violations, and/or FDUTPA violations. Often times attorneys will take these cases on a contingency basis, meaning that you and the attorney would each get a share of the monies recovered, so that you would not have to pay any legal fees up front. If a creditor is harassing you, contact a Jacksonville Bankruptcy Attorney today to discuss your options.
