Unfair Debt Collection – Credit card companies, banks, and businesses must follow strict rules when trying to collect debts from consumers.

Creditor Harassment – Anytime credit card companies or other types of collectors set out to obtain a debt, they must adhere to the laws clearly outlined in the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, a piece of federal legislation that protects all consumers.
