Acquiring a debt can happen easily. If you've been unable to pay monthly bills for one reason or another, then debt becomes inevitable. When this happens, your debt may be purchased by a third party collection agency, who may begin to try to collect payment for the debt from you. To help protect consumers when this happens, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDPCA) was enacted.
Under the FDCPA, a collection agency cannot repeatedly call you to collect your debt. If this is happening to you, then the collection agency may be violating the FDCPA.
How Often Is "Frequently"?
The FDCPA does not state an exact amount that qualifies as frequently or repeatedly. Rather, it states "the frequency and persistence of the noncompliance of the debt collector" will be taken into consideration by the court. The more often a debt collector is calling you, the more likely they are to be violating the FDCPA.
