More than one-third of the $11.7 billion debt collection industry revenue comes from debt buyers who buy third-party debt for just a few cents on the dollars. The 9–0 Supreme Court’s Henson v. Santander Consumer USA Inc. 2017 WL 2507342 decision now exempts banks that buy third party debt from the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
