This week I was joined by attorney John Steinkamp, with John Steinkamp & Associates, to discuss all things debt collector harassment and your rights against it. You’ve likely heard of the tactics debt collectors use: threatening letters, predatory phone calls at all times of the day, constant text messages, and more. The good news is you’ve got rights; the bad news is most people don’t know that, and debt collectors use that to their advantage. John Steinkamp has appeared in hundreds of Fair Debt Collection Practices (“FDCPA”) cases and is regarded as an authority in this area of the law. If you or someone you love is dealing with debt collector harassment, tune in to this episode to hear about some of the protections you have against it.
