If you’re behind in paying your bills, or a creditor’s records mistakenly make it appear that you are, a debt collector may be contacting you. Debt Collector/Creditor Harassment is prohibited by both Federal & Arizona law.
These laws exist to stop abusive debt collectors and abusive creditors from using prohibited collection techniques to collect debts. These laws also allow you, the consumer, to seek damages against collection companies and creditors for violations of these consumer protections. Additionally, these laws force the offending bill collector/creditor to pay for your attorney if they are caught violating your rights!
