Stop Alliance One Harassment
If you’ve been harassed by AllianceOne, you’re not alone in your feelings. If you’re like most people, the chances are good that you’re unaware of what constitutes legal collection practices and what can be chalked up to illegal tactics. After all, if you owe the money, bill collectors can do virtually anything they want to get payment, right? Wrong! The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was enacted to protect consumers from collector harassment and abuse. But debt collectors often count on the fact that most Americans aren’t aware of the law, will put up with abusive tactics, and will pay up in order to have the bill collectors go away.
The FDCPA forbids debt collectors from a number of unsavory practices, such as engaging in harassment, making false statements, or using deceitful tactics. If you’re past due on your payments, you may have started receiving collection calls and notices. While AllianceOne – or any other debt collection agency - has the right to attempt to collect the money you owe them, it is illegal behavior for them to engage in no-holds-barred harassment. In fact, the federal FDCPA is designed to protect you from tactics that go over the line and intimidate or harass you. Knowing which practices are prohibited is the first step in asserting your rights under the law.
