Collection Agency Stop Contact Letter

Consumer Law Topics

The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act gives you the right to send a letter to a collection agency telling them to stop contacting you. The letter can also point out billing mistakes and request verification of the debt (such as a copy of the contract that you signed). If the collection agency does not follow this request, you can sue them.

After you send this letter, give the collection agency 10 days to receive it and process it. After 10 days, if the collection agency is still calling, you should contact a lawyer. You can contact our HelpLine or use our private attorney search. Remember that non-collection agencies (when a creditor handles its own bills) are not required to stop contacting you under the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act.
