Debt Defense eCourse
Nearly 30 million Americans have a debt in collections. Given that the average American household has approximately $15,000 in credit card debt, this trend is likely to remain active for the foreseeable future. Furthermore, as unpaid debt is sold to third-party debt buyers for pennies on the dollar, debt buyers use the courts to sue hundreds of consumers in one fell swoop, often without any knowledge that the debt is still owed or that the amount is correct. Learning how to effectively handle debt defense cases and spot affirmative claims with fee-shifting statutes is an excellent path to start a thriving consumer practice.
According to the Federal Trade Commission, approximately 20 percent of Americans have serious mistakes on their credit reports. This impacts their abilities to purchase homes and cars and even to secure jobs. With many Americans currently and projected to be struggling to make ends meet, the need to access credit is crucial to allow families to stay in their homes and avoid car repossessions. Incorrect credit reporting makes home and car loans unaffordable to those most vulnerable. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) delineates consumer rights regarding reporting of consumer data and responsibilities of Credit Reporting Agencies (CRAs) and furnishers to provide accurate information.
