  • Make threats of violence or abuse.
  • Threaten legal action if it is not lawful or there is no intent to do so.
  • Attempt to collect any amount greater than the actual debt.
  • Contact you at inopportune times, such as before 8 a.m. and after 9 p.m.
  • Continue to contact you after you have requested in writing that they stop.
