If you are being pursued or harassed by a collection agency the best thing you can do is retain an attorney. Then, the next time the collector calls, tell them to call your attorney, and give them this number: 614-497-9918. 

The moment a debt collector is aware you have hired an attorney they must stop calling or contacting you and deal directly with your attorney.

The Federal Law that governs consumer debt collectors is called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).  This law has severe penalties for even one violation by a collection agency. 

Some illegal collection tactics include:

  • Mailing you a letter that contains false information
  • A collector threatening violence to you or your family
  • Calling you before 8:00a.m. or after 9:00p.m.
  • Calling your employer about your debt
  • They threaten you with jail or arrest
  • They tell you a lien will be filed on your income
  • They tell a lie or misstate your debt
  • Using a technic referred to as "Robocalling" or texting your phone

If you are victim of any of these scare tactics from a collector, get  Rathburn & Associates on your side. We will vigorously defend you and attempt to prevent your income and assets from being attached by a collector.

You have 2 options for notifying the collectors you have an attorney: tell them by phone or through a "cease and desist" letter sent to them by certified mail.

The “cease and desist” letter only needs to tell the collector to stop calling you.  Once you receive verification of the certified mail being received by the collection agency they can no longer call you on the phone. Now you can call and tell them to call Rathburn & Associates at 614-497-9918.
