(Video) NACA's Debt Defense Videos

What to do when you are in debt, and debt collectors are bothering you at home, filing lawsuits against you, etc.? What are your rights?

The National Association of Consumer Advocates and Lawhub created a series of five animated videos for consumers on debt defense. They show you how to arm yourself with the right knowledge on getting yourself through these tough (financial) times.

The videos (looped above in the player) cover the following topics:

  1. Dealing with debt collectors
  2. How to handle a lawsuit filed against you
  3. Defending yourself in a lawsuit
  4. Figuring out if you were served papers properly
  5. I have a judgment against me, money is being taken away from my bank account.

Don’t go it alone! If you are in debt, and are being bothered by debt collectors, get help. Don't fall for the "pay down debt quickly" scams, it won't happen! Find additional resources on this website, and talk to a credit/debt counselor your financial institution.

The National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA) is a nonprofit association of more than 1,500 attorneys and consumer advocates committed to representing consumers' interests. NACA's members are private and public sector attorneys, legal services attorneys, law professors, and law students whose primary focus is the protection and representation of consumers, especially those of modest means. They have represented hundreds of thousands of consumers victimized by fraudulent, abusive, and predatory business practices. FoolProof partnered with NACA to provide free and useful consumer and financial information to consumers, such as the videos above.
