In this fast-paced and informative training program, attendees will learn exactly what violates the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and other laws that lead to costly fines and judgments. The program will also overview consumer vs. commercial bankruptcy and the differences between Chapter 7, 11 and 13.

Why Should You Attend:

Doing your job as an A/R professional is hard enough without the threat of lawsuits hanging over your head. But, debtors today have information at their disposal about what you can and cannot do to collect a debt. In a job where one wrong phrase in a collection letter or even your tone of voice over the phone can get you into hot water, you need to be confident and secure that everything you do is legally sound.

Abusive, deceptive, and unfair debt collection practices by many debt collectors led to the enactment of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Anyone trying to collect a business debt on behalf of another must be familiar with who this important law covers as well as its dos-and-don’ts.

This presentation will reveal the critical procedures a debt collector must follow when reaching out to both the debtor and others with whom the collector interacts while engaged in debt collection. Companies across the country are getting hit with massive fines and judgments every day by violating critical federal collection law regulations and guidelines. Unintentional mistakes or not, the courts are bringing down the hammer on companies and individuals.
