Indiana has not enacted a separate state law governing debt collection tactics, although state law does require collectors within the state to pay a fee and obtain a license. It does not appear, however, that consumers can bring an individual lawsuit if a collector fails to do so. Thus, Indiana residents faced with abusive or harassing collection tactics will receive the most protection and benefit from the FDCPA.
If you believe that a collector has behaved inappropriately while attempting to collect a debt from you in Indiana, our attorneys can help you to determine whether the FDCPA provides you with a legal remedy.
