Bill collectors are not allowed to call after 9 at night and cannot call on Sunday – or so you thought. If it happened to you see our “Your Money” page to see how much you can charge them because of their violation. The FDIC tells them so – use this link to see the law.
But true to their predatory nature with little regard for the law, heavily accented agents in India are calling Household International – HSBC customers as early as 6 AM, seven days a week including Sundays.
