State Attorney Generals can be a good resource in the fight against illegal debt collection practices. Below you will find links to your state’s attorney general’s website. You can also hire a private attorney to fight back against bill collectors and creditors who violate federal and state collection and credit laws. Like the attorney general, a private attorney can stop illegal collection. But a private attorney can also help you recover damages (which an attorney general’s office cannot directly do).

You should also review your state’s fair debt collection act, your state’s statute of limitations on debt collections, as well has any other consumer protection laws that support fair debt collection and credit reporting laws.
