With Debt Collection, Communication Can Cost You
Are you currently being pursued in a debt collection action? Communication between the debt collection agency and yourself can mean more than you think. Collections agency and debt collections law firms are regularly trying to navigate their way around the Federal Debt Collections Practices Act. The FDCPA is a federal law that prevents collections agencies from using nefarious methods to collect debts from their targets. While the law is a good step in consumer advocacy, organizations still find ways to use unfair practices in pursuing your current or future income. Part of the FDCPA prohibits a debt collector from using “any false, deceptive, or misleading representation or means in connection with the collection of any debt”. However, what constitutes a false, deceptive, or misleading representation is not always obvious. Further, when a communication is in connection with the collection of debt can vary as well.
