New Consumer Guide On Four Requirements For The FDCPA To Apply


The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a powerful law that can be very effective at fighting back against abusive debt collectors.

But it doesn’t always apply – even if you are being abused by a collector.

In this guide we discuss the four requirements for the FDCPA to apply:

1. You are a consumer;
2. The debt (or alleged debt) is a consumer debt – not a business debt;
3. The collector is a “debt collector”; and
4. The debt collector has violated the FDCPA.

You can check out our other guides under my Avvo profile.
