People are losing their jobs as a result of debt collectors.

People are losing their jobs as a result of debt collectors. Debt collectors are calling consumers at their place of work and harassing them.

The New York Better Business Bureau and Attorney General’s office haver received numerous complaints about a debt collector known to harass consumers - Eltman, Eltman and Cooper. Fred Lembeck, a freelance writer, who is also on disability, claims Eltman, Eltman and Cooper began harassing him when he fell behind on his credit card payments. The firm went as far as to freeze his bank account, so that he did not have access to his only form of income, his social security check.

Harassing consumers at work and interfering with your social security payments are not allowed under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

Watch a recent report by New York City Local News Channel CW11 on debt collector harassment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wao6wv1Fqe4
