What does debt abuse look like?

Attorney Sergei Lemberg gives hypothetical examples of potential FDCPA or TCPA violations.
For example, if it’s a Friday morning and someone is just about to go on a at work and receives a call call from a bill collector, that is probably legal. But let’s suppose that the worker puts aside his mug of tea and says to the debt collection agency in no uncertain terms that he just can’t get calls at the office. More than a bit aggravated, the man finishes his pause questioning whether the bill collection agent will pick on him when his manager or colleagues are nearby. At work the following Tuesday, the telephone rings once again with an incoming phone call from the exact same bill collection agency. The worker is unavailable, so his supervisor answers the call. The bill collection agent makes known that the man owes money. That is against the FDCPA, because the bill collection agent phoned work after being advised not to and because the debt collection agency revealed the guy’s debt to other people.
For example, let’s imagine that one day a mom stayed home from her job because her 6 year old son had a temperature and wasn't able to go to school. During the day, she had wrong number telephone calls on her phone 5 different times. She got really ticked off because the phone started was ringing just as she was pouring soup into a bowl for her son’s lunch. It startled her and she scalded her arm. Every time she answered the cell, a recording asked her to hold in order to speak to a rep. And every time, a bill collection agent was asking for somebody she didn’t know. The 3rd time around, she told them in no uncertain terms not to call again. The day after, her son had recuperated, so she drove him to school. As she was going to work, her cell rang again, with the same wrong number. The caller most likely violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act because it prohibits bill collectors from using a robodialer to call a person’s cell telephone without the consumer’s consent.
