The Texas Debt Collection Act And Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
When a debt collector violates a debtor’s rights, the debtor may be entitled to take legal action against the debt collection agency for any damages suffered. According to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, a debtor may sue an agency for up to $1,000 as well as any damages suffered. The court may also award the payment of court costs and all attorney fees. The Texas Debt Collection Act provides debtors with similar rights but applies to original creditors in addition to debt collection agencies. Following are some types of violations that either Act may include:
- The use of profanity
- Threats of violence or force
- Calling a debtor at work when asked not to
- Discussing the debtor’s situation with third parties
- Failing to disclose that they are a creditor/debt collector
