This session examines how to become your own best advocate. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) applies to the behavior and methods of third party debt collectors. We will review the Act and what is covered. However, there are many areas not covered by the Act that require consumers to understand how to effectively ensure their rights through the appropriate use of Federal, State and Local regulatory bodies, public service agencies, non-profit organizations, industry groups, and ombudsman.
