Our firm’s team of consumer protection attorneys has years of experience representing victims of unfair debt collection practices by large corporations. Even if you owe a debt, collectors, creditors, and other large institutions must follow strict guidelines when attempting to collect. Consumers are protected by robust laws like the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and North Carolina’s debt collection statutes.
North Carolina has some of the strongest protections in the country for individuals against harassment or other unlawful activities by debt collectors and collection agencies. Debtors are not only entitled to receive actual damages because of inappropriate phone calls but can recover statutory damages of up to $4,000 per violation.

When these rights are violated, you deserve compensation. Some typical instances where you might have a claim for unfair debt collection include:
