We all want to pay our bills on time but sometimes due to some financial crunch it is not possible to make even minimum payments and meet due dates. In such situations, it is advisable to call on your creditors and inform them about your debts. In most cases, they may be willing to reschedule payments or make other considerations to help you repay the debt.
If a debt goes unpaid for an extended period of time, creditors may turn your account to a collection department or agency. Most collection professionals do not utilize threatening and intimidating collection techniques. But it is important that you know your rights as a consumer when dealing with collectors.
It is true that debt collectors have the right to demand payment and take legal action if necessary. But third party debt collectors cannot call you up repeatedly. However, they can contact your friends, coworkers or neighbors only to inquire about your whereabouts. Obscene language or threats of violence are absolutely forbidden and a collector is not allowed to threaten you with false statements.
A collector is also not allowed to call at your workplace without your approval. If the debt is being collected by a collection agency or other third party, you can send a letter using registered mail to the credit collection agency asking them to stop calling you. By law, they must comply.
