Course description

Top FDCPA Violations All Collectors Must Be Aware of

Learn how to stay compliant when dealing with debt collection laws.

With both the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and highly active consumer protection plaintiffs lawyers looking for money, thirdparty debt collectors and especially collection lawyers are consistent and open targets for claims debt collection abuses and noncompliance issues. Even nominal violations of the FDCPA can lead to class action litigation and expose debt collectors to large damages. Learn how new federal regulations and safe harbor provisions can be used to avoid liability, increase consumer contact, and reduce the cost of collection overhead. This course will provide you with the knowledge you need to navigate the dangers of collecting consumer debts and provide you with collection techniques and strategies to reduce the risk of frivolous or harmful lawsuits.
