The Federal Trade Commission is planning to hold various dialogues around the country to discuss consumer protection issues with the debt collection industry.
The first event will be held on June 15, 2015 in Buffalo, New York and will be hosted by the Office of the New York Attorney General.
The Association of Credit and Collection Professionals International (ACA) will attend the discussion and provide input on behalf of the industry to make sure that its voice is heard. The agenda will include recent enforcement actions, consumer complaints about debt collection practices and compliance issues.
Other participants will include a representative from the CFPB and local collections professionals. Future discussions are scheduled to be held in Dallas and Atlanta and are free and open to the public.
