If you've been the victim of harassment by a debt collector, you may have the option of using the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act to defend against injustices committed by the debt collection agency. The FDCPA designates certain debt collector practices as illegal. Under the act, you have the right to sue a debt collection agency in federal or state court.
If the court determines that the debt collection agency has committed illegal practices, you may be able to recover your actual damages, your court costs, and attorney fees and statutory damages up to $1,000. With the help of fair debt collection attorney Richard Glasgow, you can often reach a settlement with a debt collection agency that gives you partial or complete debt relief.
