You might have the right to sue the debt collector under certain circumstances. If you win, the judge can require the debt collector to pay you for any damages you can prove you suffered because of the illegal collection actions. The judge can also require the debt collector to pay you up to $1,000.00 even if you can’t prove that you suffered actual damages. You can also be reimbursed for your attorney’s fees and court costs. This can occur in very fact-specific circumstances, so if you believe that you have a situation where a debt collector has acted illegally, contact Cathy Braxton for a free consultation.
