Practices for Fair Debt Collection
We try to work with lenders that follow all the provisions of the stated Fair Debt Collection Practices Act which is enforced currently by the Federal Trade Commission. PaydayLenderSearch.com is not the actual lender. PaydayLenderSearch.com does not collect any debts from consumers. Every lender in our network is required to follow the following Statues which are:
- Calling consumers on their telephone prior to 8 a.m. or post 9 p.m.
- Contacting their consumers via telephone with the malicious intent of harassing, or annoying or even using abusive language is prohibited
- Using misrepresentation and deception for debt collection
- Threatening with legal recourse even though no legal action is allowed
If a lender is found to be violating any of the above FDCPA statues PaydayLenderSearch.com will not hesitate to stop doing business with that company and file a report with the Federal Trade Commission.
