Making a Complaint Against a Collector If you think a debt collector is harassing you in violation of California law, you can submit a complaint to the California Attorney General, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Filing a Complaint With the California Attorney General If you believe a debt collector violated the Rosenthal Act, you may file a complaint with the California Attorney General's office. Although the Attorney General won't sue on your behalf, it uses complaints to learn about misconduct. The Attorney General's office also provides helpful information about debt collectors for the public. Filing a Complaint With the Federal Trade Commission You may also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Filing a Complaint With the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau You may also register a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The CFPB will forward your complaint to the collector and work to get you a response.
