FTC With NY AG and CFPB Plans Kickoff of Debt Collection Dialogues
Sharon Edmondson, Washington Legislative Team Member | May 13, 2015
The FTC is planning a nationwide tour of “debt collection dialogues” with the debt collection industry, starting with a June 15 event in Buffalo, NY, that will include the New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and a representative for the CFPB. The events, which will be open to the public, will feature discussions on recent enforcement actions, consumer complaints about debt collection practices, and compliance issues.
The Buffalo event will be from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Burchfield Penney Art Center at SUNY Buffalo State, 1300 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, N.Y. The FTC said it plans more such events in the coming months, including events in Dallas and Atlanta. Dates for those events are still pending.
