Please contact us if a debt collector, auto finance company, or mortgage company has charged you "conveniencefees" for payment by credit card, debit card, online, telephone, or electronic transfer. Illinois law prohibits such fees from being charged to a consumer unless the underlying agreement with the creditor authorizes such fees (most do not). The law is generally the same everywhere.
If you are being sued by a creditor that has imposed such charges, they may create a defense.
