The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has proposed a debt collection rule that does more to protect abusive collectors than consumers. Public comments are due August 19, 2019. Urge the CFPB to strengthen the rule to protect consumers from harassment, abuse and deception by debt collectors, including collection attorneys, and to ensure that consumers receive important information about their rights.
See our issue brief for more on what the proposed rule does and our recommendations for strengthening it.
>Tell us your story. Have you been harassed by debt collectors calling? Are you getting email, text, or direct messages from debt collectors? Have you been sued in a collection lawsuit where you didn’t owe the debt or the amount claimed was incorrect? Have you been contacted by a collector asking you to pay a very old debt? Then tell us your story.
> Find an attorney to help stop abusive debt collection practices.
