Understanding Your Rights as a Consumer

If you believe that you have become a victim of creditor harassment, you should be aware of what your rights are.

By law, your creditor cannot release personal information about your debts to anyone. That means that a creditor can never attempt to contact your friends or family members to discuss your debts. Trust must be established between you and your creditor that this information will never be disclosed to a third party.

If a creditor uses threats to force you to pay, you should report that person/agency. While a creditor can take legal action to force you to pay your debts, they can never do so through the threat of force or violence. Neither should they attempt to use false information to scare you into paying your debts. For example, if someone calls to say that you are being sued or threatens to confiscate your property, you should double-check to see if this is accurate information.

Contact our law firm today to speak with a Chicago bankruptcy lawyer and put an end to creditor harassment.
