What You Need to Know Regarding Debt Collection Telephone Call Restrictions
Making collection calls?
Are you having a hard time tracking down your debtor?
Collection calls can be frustrating, but remember to keep your cool!
The FDCPA imposes some specific restrictions on your collection phone calls to debtors. Follow these guidelines:
- Collection Calls should be made during normal business hours to avoid harassing the debtor.
- Normally, calls should be made between 8a.m. and 9p.m. However, if the debtor indicates in writing that he would prefer to be contacted at another time, then you must respect that request to avoid harassment under the FDCPA.
- If you are told in writing not to contact a debtor at work, you must stop calling.
- Even on the phone, communications governed by the FDCPA must include the warning that you are “a debt collector attempting to collect a debt.”
