Stop Calling Me Letter to Harassing Debt Companies

Some debt companies will stress you out by calling you at home, at work or anywhere else to demand payment for any debts owed. According to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act however, you have rights! Under the section [15 USC 1692c] Section 805(c): CEASING COMMUNICATION:

"If a consumer notifies a debt collector in writing that the consumer refuses to pay a debt or that the consumer wishes the debt collector to cease further communication with the consumer, the debt collector shall not communicate further with the consumer with respect to such debt"
