The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), an independent agency to the US government with a mission to protect consumers, has received more complaints so far this year about debt collector harassment than anything else. With the fact that unemployment continues to be at record levels, it is no surprise that many Americans are struggling to manage their debt with many being contacted excessively by creditors and debt collectors regarding unpaid bills and delinquent accounts. Debt collectors often turn to using threatening tactics in order to collect debt, and this type of harassment is not only an annoyance, but it makes it difficult for consumers to feel confident about finding a solution to manage their debt and get back on track with their finances as well as their daily lives.
