1.25 credits | 1 hour and 15 minutes **Qualifies for “Current Issues in Debt Buying” Requirement for Re-certification
Sponsored by: Cornerstone Support, Inc.
Not all entities that purchase defaulted debt are subject to the FDCPA as the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2017 decision in Henson v. Santander held. Although Santander addressed the issue in the context of a national bank, the decision fueled discussion (and several cases) raising the possibility that certain debt buying companies may not be FDCPA debt collectors. What kind of entities can those be and how would those entities be structured? Join Jack Metzler, an attorney in the Office of the General Counsel for the Federal Trade Commission, Dara Tarkowski of Acutate Law and Don Maurice of Maurice Wutscher for a lively discussion of the impact of Santander on debt buyers and how their activities, whether passive, active or something else, have become critical questions.
