If you are suing debt buyers under the FDCPA, you need to understand the recent Circuit Court of Appeals decisions on whether these entities are debt collectors. Debt buyers are pushing the “passive” debt buyer argument through our courts to further restrict the FDCPA’s application and chip away at its already limited coverage. This webinar will prepare you for facing the “passive” debt buyer issue in your FDCPA cases involving debt buyers. This webinar is geared to intermediate practitioners.

What You Will Learn:

  • Where the Circuit Court of Appeals stands on the “passive” debt buyer issue
  • What the ins and outs are of a debt buyer’s arguments that it is not a debt collector under the FDCPA
  • How to prove that a debt buyer’s primary purpose is debt collection
