When you file for bankruptcy, it is important to know that the moment your petition is submitted, an order of stay is put into place to stop creditors from contacting you. Unfortunately, there are a number of unscrupulous collection agencies out there that do not adhere to this order and still attempt to collect on the debt during the bankruptcy process.
What is Considered Creditor Harassment?
A creditor is harassing you when they:
- Call at inappropriate hours
- Call you at your work
- Call family members to get ahold of you
- Use vulgar language
- Use threats in order to get you to pay
