What rights do you have if Redline Recovery harasses you?
Here are 10 points laid down by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) that you may remember if any debt collector harasses you for a debt you may or may not owe.
Time of call: No debt collector can call you before 8 am or after 9 pm unless you have agreed upon such calls.
Stop calling letter: No debt collector can call you or contact you once he receives a 'stop calling' cease and desist letter from you unless it is to inform you of any change in the terms of the agreement between you and the collector related to the debt.
Contacting people related to you: No debt collector may call your family members, neighbors, friends or the workplace unless it is only to know about your location.
Using improper language: A debt collector should abstain from using improper or abusive language with the debtor. He should also not resort to using threat in order to collect the debt from you.
Threatening debtors: Debt collectors cannot make false threats like putting a lien on your property or filing a lawsuit unless it really means to do it and it is legal. If a debt collector threatens you falsely, file a complaint with the FTC and also your State Attorney General's office.
Threatening to claim benefits: Debt collectors are not allowed to claim your federal benefits like Social Security or your retirement benefits. If they say they will, then it is illegal.
Detailed information on the debt: Once a debt collector contacts you, he is responsible to send you a notice outlining how much money you owe and what you should do if you do not owe that money.
Debt validation: If you are being called for a debt that you do not owe, you may request a debt validation within 30 days. The debt collector should validate the debt and failure to do it should get the information removed from your credit report.
Sue debt collector: You also have the power to sue a debt collector in state or federal court for violating the law within a year of the law being violated. If you have the case in your favor then you may recover the monetary damages incurred plus an additional amount of up to $1000 from the debt collector.
Claiming federal benefits: After the Congress passed the Debt Collection Improvement Act, it is stated the government can take a portion of the federal retirement, salary (federal) and benefits from Social Security if there are any non-tax debts that you owe to the government.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
