Fight Back Against Creditors and Collection Agencies
Lakelaw protects you against illegal and oppressive debt collectors. The United States Fair Debt Collection Practices Act protects you. It is illegal for creditors to:
- Contact you too early in the day or too late at night
- Lie to you in order to collect a debt
- Threaten you with arrest or imprisonment for non-payment of debts
- Treat you or your family in an abusive fashion
- Swear at you
- Shout or yell at you
- Treat you in an otherwise undignified fashion
If a collector or collection agency violates the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Lakelaw can sue them for you. Lakelaw can recover statutory damages of $1000 for each violation as well as actual damages. Lakelaw can also recover attorneys fees and costs.
Not only that, just because a creditor sues you, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they can get a judgment. Lakelaw has successfully defended against creditors who try to collect debts they don’t own, creditors who try to collect debts against people with names similar to yours, creditors who try to collect claims which are barred by the statute of limitations (zombie debt) and creditors who try to collect debt which they purchased from others but for which they have no documentation. Don’t take creditors’ claims lying down. Let Lakelaw fight for you.
