Landover Debt Collection Law Attorney

Get a D.C. and Maryland FDCPA Violations Lawyer on Your Side

Creditor harassment is a serious problem for many people. As the Federal Trade Commission states, "There is abundant evidence of the use of abusive, deceptive, and unfair debt collection practices by many debt collectors. Abusive debt collection practices contribute to the number of personal bankruptcies, to marital instability, to the loss of jobs, and to invasions of individual privacy."

Mr. Arnopol is a Landover debt collection law attorney who has been helping people throughout Maryland combat creditor harassment since 1989. He can sit down with you and clearly explain the legal options you have against unfair debt collection methods.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was created to defend people against abusive and deceptive debt collection practices. If your creditors are not abiding by the FDCPA, you have an excellent reason for involving a lawyer.

What Are Unfair Debt Collection Practices?

The FDCPA does not apply to individuals or businesses who are attempting to collect debts on their own behalf. However, it does apply to collection agencies and others whose regular business is collecting debts on another's behalf.

The FDCPA states that debt collectors may not:

  • Contact you if you are represented by an attorney
  • Contact you if you inform them in writing to stop
  • Contact you at work, if they know it will get you in trouble
  • Contact you before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m. (your local time) without your consent
  • Contact your neighbors, family members or friends about your debt
  • Use or threaten violence
  • Use obscene language
  • Call without a pause or without identifying themselves on the phone
  • Make false or misleading statements
  • Threaten criminal prosecution
