Credit card companies, banks, debt buyers and collections agencies in Texas are regulated under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Under the law, collectors are restricted regarding the kinds of threats they make and actions they can take to entice a debtor to make payments on time or repay the debt owed.
Debt collectors may not:
- Threaten to notify your employer or other third party about your debt
- Call persistently after 9 p.m. or early mornings
- Inform you of a legal action being taken if no legal proceeding has been started
- Make a personal visit to your home or place of employment
- Use abusive language by phone or correspondence
- Make verbal threats of harm to you or your family
