CFPB - Now Available On-Demand: “Resources and Tips for Dealing with Debt Collection”
Monday, September 26, 2016
updated our on-demand virtual library to reflect the addition of our newest
Direct- to-Servicemember and Veteran production, “Resources and Tips for
Dealing with Debt Collection”. Your assistance in helping us distribute
this information to servicemembers and veterans is requested.
our featured topic:
veterans and military families have submitted thousands of debt collection
complaints to the CFPB since we began accepting them in July 2013 – our
fastest-growing, and consistently largest, category of complaints.
received reports that some debt collectors are threatening servicemembers by
claiming that they will report the past-due debt to their commanding officer,
have the servicemember busted in rank or even have their security clearance
revoked if they don’t pay up.
production provides tips and information about ways to communicate with debt
collectors. We also show you resources from the CFPB that you can use in
dealing with debt collectors.
