Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (the "Act") primarily applies to third-party debt collectors; it was not intended to cover the conduct of the original creditor. However, some states have enacted consumer-protection statutes that provide broader coverage than the Act, which may include the conduct of the original creditor. The Act also prohibits debt collectors from engaging in the following activities: (a) behavior that harasses or annoys debtors; or (b) threatening debtors with arrest or legal action unless litigation is actually contemplated. Additionally, the Act requires that in the debt collector's first communication with the debtor, the debt collector notify the debtor of their ability to challenge the validity of the debt and provide other basic information including the debtor's right to ask the collection agency to "validate"the debt within a specified amount of time.
