Fair Debt Collections Practices Act: Most consumers harassed by debt collectors probably think it’s impractical to hire a lawyer to fight a collection agency. If a consumer cannot afford to pay their bills, then how would a consumer have money to hire a lawyer to fight a collection agency. However, consumers harassed by debt collectors do not have to pay attorney’s fees and costs. The collection agency pays your attorney’s fees and costs.
