What does debt abuse look like?

Attorney Sergei Lemberg gives hypothetical examples of potential TCPA violations.
For example, if it is a Tuesday afternoon and a guy is just about to take a at the office and gets a call call from a bill collector, that is most likely legal. But let’s figure that the worker sets down his cup of tea and says to the bill collector in no uncertain terms that he can’t receive telephone calls at work. More than a bit ticked off, he finishes his pause questioning if the bill collection agent will humiliate him when his supervisor or workmates are nearby. The next day, the debt collection agent again calls his workplace. The man is away from his desk, so his manager answers the call. The debt collection rep makes known that the guy owes money. That’s illegal according to the FDCPA, because the bill collector telephoned work after being advised not to and because the debt collection rep divulged the worker’s debt to a third party.
As an example, let’s imagine that some day a woman called in sick from her job because her 6 year old son was running a fever and was unable to go to school. Over the course of the day, she had wrong number telephone calls on her cell five different times. She was especially pissed off because her mobile began to ring as she was pouring tomato soup into a cup for her son’s lunch. It took her by surprise and she burned her finger. Each time she answered the mobile phone, an autodialer instructed her to hold in order to speak to a representative. And every time, the debt collector was asking for somebody she’d never heard of. The 4th time around, she told them in no uncertain terms never to call again. The following day, her son was feeling better, so she took him to school. As she was going to work, her cell rang again, with the same number. The caller most likely violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act because it prohibits debt collectors from using a robodialer to call someone’s mobile phone without the consumer’s consent.
