There are various forms of consumer fraud. Placing an emphasis on consumer protection, attorney Howard Silver can help you if you’ve been the victim in any fraud scenario, and especially to the following three major fraud areas:
- Identity Theft: This serious crime happens when someone uses your personal information without permission to commit a crime or fraud. According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), approximately nine million Americans are victims of identity theft each year. Most perpetrators of identity theft use certain pieces of personal information to commit criminal, financial, or medical fraud, including your name, credit card number, driver’s license, social security number, or bank information.
- Unfair debt collection: Unfortunately, many people have an accumulation of debt that has accrued over the years. When you fall behind on payments, a debt collector contacts you to recover the money you owe. However, many debt collectors have been known to use illegal practices to obtain the debt owed including harassment, giving false statements, or engaging in unfair collection practices. In these cases, you have the right to seek counsel to stop this mistreatment and abuse.
- Credit reporting: Credit is a large part of your financial identity. Bad credit can have negative impacts on your personal and financial well-being for years. Bad credit can be the result of many things, including identity theft, making it important to speak with an experienced consumer protections attorney to help you navigate the various aspects of your credit report and to help you get your life back on track.
