Where Can You Report a Debt Collector for an Alleged Violation of the Law?

Report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state Attorney General’s office and the Federal Trade Commission. Many states also have their own debt collection laws and your Attorney General’s office can help you determine your rights.

If you have questions about the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or your rights under the Act, write:  Correspondence Branch, Federal Trade Commission, Washington, D.C. 20580. Although the FTC generally cannot intervene in individual disputes, the information you provide may indicate a pattern of possible law violations requiring action by the Commission.
