You may have other rights. Call a local attorney for state specific§ 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.

Is it normal for a child of a verbally abusive father to grow up with the mentality of Honesty Is Not Always If Ever The Best Policy when dealing with authority figures other than his abusive father?

Yes, it is normal with some children who grow up with a verbally abusive father to think that honesty is not always if ever the best police when dealing with authority figures other than his own father because a verbally abusive father has life twisted around in his own mind. A child that is either verbally or physically abused by their father will most likely try to please that father more so than the father. However, there are other children who grow up with verbally abusive fathers who make an extreme effort to be the opposite of their father and when those grown children have children of their own they make sure their children will not have to go through the same thing they went through.

Do verbally abusive controlling men change in another relationship?

* It's possible if their new partner has a laid back demeanor and can handle the anger outbursts of the verbally abusive partner, but the statistics are extremely low on this factor. Verbally abusive and controlling men have generally grown up in this environment and these are learned habits, or often times a feeling of having no control at the time they lived at home and later in life the anger and rage surfaces. For an abusive, controlling man he should seek professional counseling to learn to control these two bad habits.
