Prince Edward Island collection agencies cannot harass, threaten, bully or intimidate you. It is a crime

Here`s how to file a complaint.

YOU MAY HAVE A VALID COMPLAINT AGAINST A PEI  COLLECTION AGENCY IF YOU CAN PROVE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING RULES WERE VIOLATED

Since collection agencies only get paid when they collect these debts, they can be very persistent. While you are responsible for paying money that you owe, the Collection Agencies Act says that all collectors must be licensed. This means there are rules that collection agencies must follow when they contact you.

The rules:

Collectors must contact you by mail before making any contact by phone or otherwise.

Collectors cannot collect more money than you owe the business or person who hired them.

Collectors are responsible for making sure that you actually owe the money. They must tell you who is looking for repayment when they contact you.

Collectors may not make collect calls to you to demand repayment.

You may ask collectors to only contact you through a lawyer.

Collectors may not threaten or intimidate you or use abusive language.

Collectors may not call so often or in such a way that you or your family feels harassed.

Collectors may not call on a Sunday, or between 9 p.m. and 8 a.m.

Collectors may not lie about you (directly or indirectly) to your family members or to anyone that you owe money to.

Collectors may not give information, or threaten to give information, to anyone that could affect your employment.

Collectors may not contact your employer, friends, acquaintances, family or neighbours unless they have guaranteed or co-signed the loan they are trying to collect, except if they are looking for your address.

Collectors may not take you to court – unless the collector has taken on the debt from the company that you originally borrowed money from
