My business is not doing well due to the pandemic. I’m working with my partners to do something. Meanwhile collectors have started calling at odd hours. What should we do? Is there any helpline where I can file a complaint?

Hi Bencord!

If the debt collector is harassing you by calling you at odd hours, feel free to submit a complaint with the CFPB or Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. You can make the complaint online.

You can call the CFPB at (855) 411-CFPB (2372).

Other than CFPB, you can also contact your state's attorney general.

Thanks!

Sorry. There is not much that you can do actually. Business debt collection calls don't fall under the FDCPA Act. So, You won't get help there. Try to contact your original creditor as soon as possible regarding this.

You can file complaint to the CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau). But before that make sure that the collectors are violating your rights under the FDCPA norms. To know more about your rights under the FDCPA, click https://www.debtconsolidationcare.com/fdcpa.html.
However, if you need help with your debts, feel free to call 800-DEBT-913. The expert financial coaches are gonna help you with your debts.
