Fighting creditor harassment with legalities is not a 100% guarantee of winning, or even preventing credit harassment. But when legally done, at least there is a better chance of not being hassled anymore, reducing stress and financial exhaustion on the consumer’s part.
Federal and state laws are available to protect consumers from creditor harassment. A major body of laws is the FDCPA, or Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. This is a body of laws that the government bodies have developed in order to protect consumers from any and all abusive forms of creditor harassment practices.
