Common Causes of Debt

Personal debt is a prevalent issue affecting people from all walks of life and for a variety of reasons. There are various factors that contribute to this challenge, and no one should ever feel shame over struggling with debt. It’s far more common than you may realize. 

Some of the most frequently recurring reasons for personal debt include the following: 

Student Loans

With the skyrocketing costs of higher education, student loans have become a significant burden for many people. The pursuit of a college degree often requires borrowing substantial amounts of money, leaving graduates with sizeable debt to repay. 

Medical Debt

Unforeseen medical expenses can quickly accumulate. Even with health insurance, individuals may face high deductibles, co-pays, or out-of-network charges that can strain their finances. Additionally, serious medical conditions or emergencies can lead to prolonged hospital stays, surgeries, or ongoing treatments, further exacerbating the financial burden.

Personal Loans and Credit Cards 

Personal loans, often obtained from financial institutions or private lenders, can offer temporary relief during times of financial need. However, they can also contribute to personal debt. Credit cards offer convenience and flexibility but also come with high-interest rates that can quickly spiral out of control and become increasingly difficult to manage. 

Divorce

Divorce can have a significant impact on an individual's financial well-being. Legal fees, division of assets, alimony, child support, and changes in household income can all contribute to personal debt during and after a divorce. Adjusting to a new single-income household or dealing with unexpected expenses can put a divorcee under financial strain.

Common Creditor Harassment Tactics

Unfortunately, it’s far too common for creditors to engage in aggressive tactics in pressuring people for repayment. While debt collectors have the right to pursue unpaid debts, they are required to abide by certain laws and regulations that protect consumers from abusive and harassing tactics. You have more legal protection than you may realize. 

Here are six common illegal creditor harassment tactics:

  • Intimidation: This can include aggressive language, threats of legal action, or references to potential consequences, such as wage garnishment or property seizure. 
  • Verbal abuse: Offensive language, personal insults, or derogatory remarks towards the debtor are not permitted under the law. 
  • Physical threats: Some debt collectors may go further by making physical threats to debtors. This can involve direct or implied threats of violence, harm to property, or other forms of intimidation. 
  • Financial threats: Debt collectors may resort to making false or misleading statements to frighten debtors. They may threaten to ruin your credit score, disclose personal information, or make false claims about legal consequences. 
  • Excessive contact: Federal law limits the number of times a debt collector can contact you and prohibits contact at inconvenient times, such as early mornings or late evenings. 
  • Profanity: Debt collectors are required to communicate in a professional and respectful manner when dealing with debtors. The use of profanity is a violation of these regulations.

If individuals experience any of these illegal creditor harassment tactics, it is important to take action. 

The steps you can take include the following: 

  • Document every incident when you’ve been harassed. Be sure to note the date, time, and details of the incident. 
  • Let the creditor know that you are aware of the harassment and they are to stop. Our office can help you draft a letter to this end. 
  • Report the harassment to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a federal agency there to protect your rights. This report, and following up on it, is another area where our office can help.
