Collectors Win FDCPA Cases Without Going to Court ("The Debt Collection Drill")
Most Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) lawsuits are resolved without a court ruling on the merits. Further, debt collectors win a surprising number of these out-of-court resolutions, obtaining dismissals of the cases without paying anything to settle. In this episode of The Debt Collection Drill, attorneys John Rossman and Mike Poncin discuss specific strategies debt collectors use to prevail without going to court, including public records investigations of the plaintiff, negotiations with opposing counsel, and examining the actions of the plaintiff during the debt collection process. If your agency has begrudgingly paid to settle a questionable FDCPA case in the past year, this is an episode you will not want to miss.
