What does debt abuse look like?

Attorney Sergei Lemberg gives hypothetical examples of potential FDCPA or TCPA violations.
For instance, if it is a Wednesday morning and someone is ready to take a break at the office and receives a call call from a debt collector, that is likely legal. But let’s figure that the worker sets down his cup of coffee and tells the debt collection agency in no uncertain terms that he ’s not allowed to get calls at work. More than a bit upset, he closes out his pause questioning whether the bill collection rep will embarrass him when his chief or colleagues are close by. The next day, the debt collection agency again phones his workplace. The guy is unavailable, so his manager answers the call. The debt collection rep discloses that the man has a debt. That’s against the FDCPA, because the bill collection agent telephoned the office after being told not to and because the debt collection agency talked about the man’s debt to other people.
Hypothetically, let’s say that one day a woman stayed home from her job because her 5 year old son was running a fever and could not go to school. As the day went on, she got wrong number phone calls on her mobile phone 4 different times. She got really pissed off because the cell started was ringing just as she was pouring soup into a cup for her son’s lunch. It surprised her and she burned her hand. Each time she answered her cell, a recording told her to hold in order to talk to a rep. And each time, a debt collector would ask for somebody she’d never heard of. The third time around, she stated in no uncertain terms never to call again. The next day, her son had recuperated, so she took him to school. In the car, as she was driving to work, her mobile phone rang again, with the same wrong number. The caller most likely violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act because it prohibits debt collectors from using a robodialer to call a cell telephone without the consumer’s consent.
