Lemon Laws are here to protect us!

If you've not bought a lemon I'm sure you know someone who has. Growing up in the 70's we bought a lemon of a car. There were no lemon laws back then to protect us. Once sold a lemon you had to have it fixed or just deal with it or resell it to someone else. I think we wrecked it and that was the end of that lemon.

There are times when you buy a lemon that things come up you are not prepared for. Such as a sickness, being laid off, etc and then you are not able to pay the note on that lemon. Stop collection harrassment for good by knowing your rights. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act prohibits debtors from being harassed because they aren't able to pay a debt.

If you feel you are being harassed unfairly by a debtor there are things you can do to get them to stop. Stop collection harassment California has lawyers that will meet with you for no consultation fee. It's free to meet with them and see if what's going on with your debt or with the lemon you were sold falls under the lemon law or fair collection practices. Don't let them take advantage of your good nature. There are lawyers who will fight for what is right. Let them!
