If you are contacted by a debt collector, it is important to be aware of your rights. You have the right to:
- Verify the debt: Debt collectors are required to provide you with certain information about the debt. This includes the original creditor, the amount of the debt, and the date it was due. If you are not sure if the debt is legitimate, you can ask the debt collector for proof of the debt.
- Dispute the debt: If you believe that the debt is not yours, or that you have already paid it, you can dispute it with the debt collector. You will need to provide documentation to support your claim.
- Make a payment arrangement: If you cannot afford to pay the debt in full, you can try to work out a payment arrangement with the debt collector. This may involve making smaller payments over a longer period of time.
- Be treated fairly: Debt collectors are prohibited from engaging in certain harassing or abusive practices, such as calling you at unreasonable hours, threatening you with violence or arrest, or lying to you about the debt.
Complaints can be filed with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
