Three Types Of Illegal Voicemails From Collectors And How To Make Them Stop
Voicemails from bill collectors are a reality when you have been turned over to collections. The dirty secret debt collectors don’t want you to know about is that they very often violate the law (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act – FDCPA) when they leave a voicemail message.
They know they are violating the law but they still do it anyway.
There are three types of illegal voicemails:
- Illegal threats or lies.
- Third party disclosures.
- Failure to leave the mini-miranda.
Debt collectors often call repeatedly when collecting a debt, leaving messages whenever possible and rely on the fact that consumers often don’t know their rights.
