What are your rights when the lender is verbally abusive?
You may have other rights. Call a local attorney for state specific advice.ftc.gov§ 806. Harassment or abuse [15 USC 1692d]
A debt collector may not engage in any conduct the natural consequence of which is to harass, oppress, or abuse any person in connection with the collection of a debt. Without limiting the general application of the foregoing, the following conduct is a violation of this section:
(1) The use or threat of use of violence or other criminal means to harm the physical person, reputation, or property of any person.
(2) The use of obscene or profane language or language the natural consequence of which is to abuse the hearer or reader.
(3) The publication of a list of consumers who allegedly refuse to pay debts, except to a consumer reporting agency or to persons meeting the requirements of section 603(f) or 604(3)1 of this Act.
(4) The advertisement for sale of any debt to coerce payment of the debt.
(5) Causing a telephone to ring or engaging any person in telephone conversation repeatedly or continuously with intent to annoy, abuse, or harass any person at the called number.
(6) Except as provided in section 804, the placement of telephone calls without meaningful disclosure of the caller's identity.
First of all if a collector is not a third party collector then FDCPA does not apply. Most lenders do however follow FDCPA and will disipline a collector up to termination. Most lenders also record conversations for quaility checks. I would suggest contacting the lender and requesting to speak to a manager or VP above the collectors manager. In most cases if you speak to the collectors manager the compliant will stay at that level. Check your state laws but you might want to record the next phone call yourself. You can get a mic cable for your receiver for under ten bucks.
There is a sample letter to stop a collection agency from contacting you and your family. All in All demand that they not contact you and your family and tell them that if they do you will pursue violation of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act in Fed. Court. You have to send the letter by certified mail, return receipt otherwise they can state they they never received anything.

Verbal and mental abuse are kind of a cause and affect. When somebody verbally abuses you so badly it eventually, over time, turns into a mental abuse which means you start be…lieving what the abuser says, and less of what you feel and think.
Answer if you partner calls you bad names or puts you down in any way.
Im asking myself the same question good luck. The best thing to dois get out of it as soon as possible! Its not safe to keep yourself in that enviroment!

Verbal abuse eventually turns into physicalabuse! So you ask, how do u deal with a verbally abusive boyfriend?DONT DEAL WITH IT! GET OUT ASAP! Anwer2. Verbal, emotional and physical abuse are forms of VIOLENCE.The Bible makes this point at Ephesians 4:31: Put away fromyourselves every kind of malicious bitterness, anger, wrath,screaming, and abusive speech as well as everything injurious."Jehovah God does not approve of abusive speech or conduct and thatvictims should not accept such behavior as normal or as somethingthat is their fault.

Verbal abuse is when someone hurts you with their words, sayingmean things intentionally. Calling you bad names, demeaning you,putting down something you do, how you act, flaw…s about you, usingtheir words to make you feel worthless, manipulate you, and keepyou feeling bad. Some people say that they think verbal abuse issometimes worse than physical abuse. When someone verbally abusesyou it hurts your self esteem. It makes you feel like you are noton the same level they are. It can make you feel powerless. Answer2: Verbal abuse is just another form of VIOLENCE and in thehome its called domestic violence. It is the abusive, belittlingand obscene talk that a person spews out at you.
I think people who verbally abuse others just have deeper issuesthemselves. It either stems from the way they were brought up orsituations that have occured in the past that t…hey can't deal withproperly. I was seeing a guy once who always verbally abused me. He wouldsnap at the slightist thing. He would start to raise his voice,starting name calling and start to swear. It really damaged myself-esteem and I started to become very shy and self conciouswhenever I was out or around him. Turns out he was sexually abusedas a young child and has never really been able to cope with it inhis own mind. It was eating him up inside and he felt angry at theworld. It is something I know he is working on now as it is something heneeds to fix. But until he loves himself, he can't love anyoneelse. Please don't think it is your fault. No-one deserves to be abused.And if you can't see the light at the end of tunnel - leave. Answer2: Your boyfriend may do this because of his upbringing, buthe also does it because you tolerate it and let him get away withit. Yes I agree with the first answer because I know of that samesituation. A man who treated his wife horribly, but after she lefthim he got the professional help he needed. Turns out thebabysitter had started having sex with him when he was 11 yearsold. Your boyfriend is not going to change until he seeksprofessional help for what is going on in his head. Until then heWILL NOT CHANGE and YOU CANNOT change him. Breaking up with someoneyou care about is hard, but being trapped in an abusiverelationship is far harder. The best thing you can do is suggestyour boyfriend gets help and wish him well. Work on healing foryourself, you will find a man who will love and cherish you for thebeautiful person you are.
yes of course. you are intentionally trying to hurt your child. but just in a mental way. i say it's worse then physical.
It depends, if your a girl yes, if your a boy only do it if you are going tohit a guy.

Yes it can ! There are some illnesses that effect the brain, causing different changes in behavior. My brother had an aneurism (bleeding in the brain) caused by the weaken…ing of the blood vessels. He has become a completely different person, he swears at people for no reason and has become very aggressive towards our whole family, insulting even his mother. We were all brought up on a very high moral code. Before this happened he would not even raise his voice in anger, he was one of the most amiable people anyone could wish to meet.
There is no law protecting a parent from verbal abuse from a child. It is the parents responsibility to seek the proper avenues for treating a verbally abusive child while he/…she is still underage and in their care. Counseling is the first step, however, if the case is severe enough the child may require an intensive program.
