Stop Debt Harassment in Ohio
Kimmel & Silverman provides legal service to consumers in Ohio who are tired of debt collection calls and harassment.
Ohio Consumer Protection Laws
Ohio state laws regarding debt collector harassment mirror those of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). The FDCPA protects Ohio citizens from abusive and unfair collection practices by third-party debt collectors.
Protection in Ohio Under the FDCPA
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act is the federal law that regulates collection calls and stops debt harassment. The law outlines several illegal actions that are meant to protect consumers all over the country, including Ohio. These actions include:
- Any form of intimidation, profanity, or threat of violence while attempting to collect debts.
- Repeated phone calls at unusual times, including before 8:00 am or after 9: pm.
- Contacting a debtor at work after being informed that contact is prohibited by the employer.
- Communicating with a debtor that has already expressed they are being represented by an attorney.
