Is Crystal Collections Harassing You?
Sometimes, it's difficult to know when a debt collection agency is harassing you and when their attempts to get in touch with you are legitimate. A debt collection agency does have the right to contact you by mail or phone, as long as they do so at a decent hour of the day.
However, the following behaviours on the part of your debt collector constitute harassment:
- Calling you many times in one day or calling you early morning or late night.
- Pursuing you on social media.
- Sending you papers that look official even though they are not e.g. papers that look like court documents.
- Making physical or verbal threats.
- Coercing you into larger instalments than you can afford.
- Asking you to pay a debt which is not actually yours.
- Saying that they are from the bailiff or the sheriff's office when they are not.
These and many other behaviours on the part of debt collectors are not acceptable and you can take steps to get them to stop.

Why Use DoNotPay to Decide How to Respond to Debt Collectors
