Telephone Collections: Dos And Don'ts
|Date / Time:
The credit and collection industry has grown dramatically over the past 20 years. Creditors are faced with increasing challenges in collecting debts from consumers, while facing mounting customer difficulties and tighter compliance environments.
This live webinar will help you understand the importance of complying with the relevant laws governing collections via telephone and the impact of the laws affecting telephone collections.
Collectors are still targets under the FDCPA. TCPA lawsuits are in vogue and the potential liabilities for calling cell phones via dialers without consent can equate to potential ruinous liability.
Numerous states have two-party recording act consent requirements. Recording of collection calls can be a benefit and a detriment and the potential liability for recording calls without consent in two-party states is perilous. This webinar will additionally allow you to pose questions about your most pressing collection concerns.
