What does debt abuse look like?

Attorney Sergei Lemberg gives hypothetical examples of potential FDCPA or TCPA violations.
Let’s say it's the weekend and a woman you met at the neighborhood party is in her home when her cell rings. It's a collector. It isn't surprising, because she was having medical issues for over a year. The good news is, she's found a new job and she's excited to announce to the collector that she will soon be able resume making payments. The agent interrupts the announcement with an explanation that it is not enough, and that it is time to start garnishment. Uneasy, she thinks, "I can not afford this!" If this garnishment occurs, she'll never get caught up on her debt. If the collector is intimidating you with garnishing your paycheck, this could be violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
Just imagine it’s Friday, and you’re in a meeting with your supervisor. You are talking over a raise for your colleague. You’ve been nervously preparing for this meeting for days. You’re asking questions, and everything is promising. Abruptly, your mobile phone beeps audibly, disrupting the meeting. You grab your mobile phone in your pocket to send the call to voicemail and try to get the meeting on track. After work, you are walking out to the parking lot, remembering to play the voice message. The message is from CBE Group seeking your college roommate. You’ve warned them not to call again. You call them back, telling them again that you cannot help. This call could violate the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
