Are you having problems with Keystone Recovery group?
Picture this scenario: you are sitting there engaged in your regular daily activities and your phone rings. You don’t recognize the number but you answer anyway. You say hello and a voice identifies itself as a collection representative from Keystone Recovery Group. You hang up the phone angry and frustrated about how rude and inconsiderate the collection agent was to you throughout the call.
Let’s be honest, debt collectors are notorious for their collection and scare tactics. So what do you do? FIGHT BACK and SUE!
For example, did you know that it is against the law for debt collectors to make robocalls and to leave advertisement Robo messages on your cell phone? That is the importance of knowing your rights.
Why is it important to know your rights?
If you choose to drive a car down the freeway, what is the first requirement imposed by law? If you want to drive on the streets, alongside other drivers, you need to demonstrate at least a minimal understanding of the rules of the road and your ability to remember them while navigating the road. This is required for safety, and for the protection of our friends, neighbors, and loved ones.
The same rules apply to the debt collection world. The state, federal, and local governments impose similar restrictions on debt collection agencies and it is helpful to know them for the protection of yourself and your loved ones. They require debt collectors to get a license. The license demonstrates the debt collection agency’s willingness to cooperate with the law.
Regardless, many debt collectors think it is ok to ignore the rules. This is what makes it doubly important to know the rules which a debt collector must operate by so that you can easily know when they have stepped out of line and protect yourself, your family, and your loved ones from their various harmful tactics.
