What Creditors Cannot Do
Once you have completed a bankruptcy filing, creditors or debt collection agencies can no longer contact you by virtue of an automatic stay. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), this includes actions such as:
- Early morning or late-night calls
- Calls to you directly if you have retained an attorney
- Calls at work without your permission
- Threats to you, your home or loved ones with violence or harm
- Racial slurs or abusive language
- Misleading statements
- Failing to identify themselves on the phone and the nature of the call
- Talking to your family, friends or others about your debt
If any of these have happened to you after you have filed for bankruptcy protection, we can take legal action to pursue punitive damages against the offending company or individual.
