CFRB Rules on Debt Collection

The CFPB published two bulletins on debt collection today. 

The first  makes clear that any entity subject to the Bureau's 
jurisdiction under the Dodd-Frank Act, whether a third-party collector 
or a creditor collecting its own debts, can be held accountable for any 
unfair, deceptive, or abusive practices in collecting a consumer’s debts.

The second warns companies to avoid deceptive statements concerning 
the impact of paying a debt on a consumer’s credit score, credit report, 
or creditworthiness.
