Collection Agency Complaints Hotline 888-752-3028

Just because you are late paying your bills, does not mean collection agencies should harass you or treat you unprofessionally. If your rights have been violated, you don’t have to tolerate it. With one call, you can file a complaint, make them stop, and you might just get paid for it. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act clearly defines unacceptable behavior.
