Fair Debt Collections FDCPA Attorney in Texas
Texas FDCPA Attorney Shawn Jaffer
The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act aka the “FDCPA” is a consumer protection law that protects consumers from abuse, harassment, and deceptive actions from Debt Collectors. However, debt collectors still harass and abuse consumers every single day hoping that you would get annoyed or intimated into making a payment. Fortunately, you can sue the debt collectors for violating your consumer rights under the FDCPA and it doesn’t matter if you owe the debt or not. The debt collectors are counting on the fact that you are unaware or your rights as a debtor and do not know that you are entitled to a Free FDCPA Attorney when they violate the FDCPA.
