Illinois debtors who are experiencing financial trouble and are determining how to proceed might find themselves being contacted by creditors. In some instances, this contact in an attempt to collect on consumer debt might be deemed as creditor harassment.

Understanding the law and the protections it affords consumers is important when trying to stop these calls and other forms of contact.
