Protecting You from Illegal Debt Collection and Credit Reporting Practices
Debt collectors and creditors in Ohio have to follow strict rules regarding procedures to collect debt and reporting credit activity. For example, debt collectors must announce at the beginning of a call or in letters that they are attempting to collect a debt. They cannot call before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m. If you ask for the debt collector to verify the debt, they must do so before taking further collection activity.
However, some debt collectors choose to violate the consumer safeguards that are in place. They may have disdain for these important laws and seek to use aggressive and illegal practices in the interest of greed. Our legal advocates can investigate your claim for violations of:
- Truth in Lending Act

When companies violate these important consumer protections, it is important for you to seek qualified legal assistance to protect your rights. If your rights as a consumer have been violated, you may be able to recover your actual damages, along with attorney’s fees and statutory damages.
