Harassment from debt collectors in Orlando violates the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act should not be tolerated. Federal law protects Orlando consumers from debt collector harasment.
Congress intended to protect consumers including Orlando FL consumers when it enacted the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act in 1977 in order to eliminate debt collection harassment. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act is the first line of defense for protecting consumers from harassment by debt collectors in Orlando.
Congress enacted the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act to protect Orlando, FL consumers from personal bankruptcy, marital instability, loss of jobs and invasions of privacy.
Orlando FL consumers who believe debt collectors are harassing them may have additional protection from debt collector harassment under Florida law in addition to their rights under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
Orlando FL consumers also have rights to protect themselves against debt collectors who use false, deceptive or unfair means to collect consumer debts.
