Businesses, especially in the financial industry, often engage in abusive and harassing tactics aimed at consumers that violate federal and Florida laws. These bad actors are driven by the desire to increase profits and reduce costs associated with effective legal compliance.
For example, if debt collectors are calling your phone, you do not have to tolerate the disturbance, harassment or humiliation. Florida’s consumer protection laws protect consumers against the harassment by lenders through unfair debt collection practices.
Similarly, consumers can find themselves victims of inaccurate credit reporting, allegations regarding debts they dispute or do not owe, and overcharging by credit counselling agencies that provide debt management services.
