Understand and Comply with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act - Accounting and Finance Seminar

Today collecting debts owed to you is more important — and harder — than ever before

Debt collection plays a critical role in a healthy economy — by collecting debts owed in a timely fashion, organizations lower the cost of doing business, keep credit flowing and enable consumers to borrow (and thus spend!) more freely.

Unfortunately, some debt collectors resort to harassment, intimidation and other unfair tactics to get consumers to pay up … and in response, the US Government drafted The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (15 USC 1692). The FDCPA was created to protect consumers from harmful debt collection practices, as well as to protect ethical collectors from experiencing a disadvantage due to despicable practices by their unethical counterparts.

Debt collection is a part of doing business … but there's a right way and a wrong way to go about it!

This powerful new seminar gives you the knowledge you need to collect money owed, while staying within the legal parameters laid out by the FDCPA. With the practical skills you'll master here, you'll find collecting outstanding debts is faster, easier and less stressful than you ever thought possible. Most importantly, you'll gain a clearer understanding of the legal requirements of the FDCPA … and never again make uninformed decisions that could land you or your organization in legal hot water.


We'll cover critical issues and need-to-know info to keep you in good standing with the FDCPA:

  • Statutes of limitation on debt
  • Conduct prohibited by the FDCPA
  • The Mini Miranda warning
  • Requirements for debt validation letters
  • Consequences for violating the FDCPA
  • What not to say during a phone conversation
  • Bankruptcy and collection — what you need to know
  • Recent FDCPA changes you may not be aware of
  • And much, much more!
