Florida has instituted extra laws that supplement the FDCPA and furnish you with considerably more noteworthy insurance than the FDCPA. Florida’s Consumer Collection Practices Act shields you from abusive debt collection practices. Like the FDCPA, the FCCPA covers debt collectors. Like the FDCPA, the FCCPA covers debt collectors. However, unlike the FDCPA, it also covers the original creditors.

What are the FDCPA guidelines? FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT

If an individual case is documented by the debtor, the measure of harms granted will rely on the frequency and noncompliance of the collector. This should have collectors acting appropriately but you come across your bad apples. Some of these guidelines include:

  • Claiming to be a lawyer
  • Disclose information to a third party about the debtor to tarnish their reputation or embarrass them
  • The utilization of indecent or hostile language in correspondences
  • Disclose information to a third party about the debtor to tarnish their reputation or embarrass them
  • Imply or state that the failure to pay the debt will result in the debtor’s arrest

The Act has specific guidelines regarding which actions debt collectors and creditors may engage in to collect unpaid debt. Under the FCCPA, before a final judgment, debt collectors and creditors may not:

  • Misrepresent themselves as a law enforcement
  • Threaten to garnish wages
  • Harass the debtor or their family with frequent
  • Disclose information to a third party about the debtor to tarnish their reputation or embarrass them
  • Use indecent, revolting, or oppressive language
