How to Deal with Debt Collection

Most businesses follow a general process for collecting debts, from friendly overdue reminders, to formal demand letters. Many businesses then turn the debt over to a debt collection agency that may resort to threats, misrepresentation, harassment, and legal action.

Your Debt Collection Protections

Delinquent debtors, however, are protected from harassing, oppressive, and abusive collection methods by the Federal Trade Commission’s Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. If the debt collector persists, acquiring the services of a Virginia Beach attorney practicing in debt collection defense can end the harassment and possibly file a lawsuit against the collection agency on your behalf.
