How do I correct credit reporting errors?

No one can legally remove timely and accurate credit reporting, even if it is negative. However, any inaccurate items can be disputed. If the matter remains unresolved after the dispute process, civil action, or a lawsuit, is the next step.

How do I get a debt collector to stop calling me?

Under the FDCPA, you can contact a debt collector and dictate how – if at all – they are allowed to contact you. If debt collectors ignore your request and continue with unwanted contact, we can help you stand up for your rights and take legal action. You should not live in fear of constant harassment from debt collectors falsely threatening to arrest you or seize your car or home. We can work with you to hold debt collection companies accountable for their actions.

How do I stop robocalls and automated phone calls?

Debt collectors, banks and other businesses are prone to the misuse of automated calling technology. Robocalls frequently interrupt work, meals, quiet time, or any busy times during your day. In rare instances, errors in programming could cause the auto-dialer to call your number regularly. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and related statutes outline acceptable use of auto-dialing technology, provide consumers with access to the courts, payment of their attorney’s fees, and remedies for wrongs that may have been committed.

If you receive robocalls or automated phone calls, keep a call log with as much detail as possible.
