HOUSTON, TX – 6 Mar, 2017 – Sometimes debt collection agencies can get a bad wrap and in some cases they deserve it. In a case involving student loan debt and a 3rd Party collector, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) ordered the defendant to pay $700,000 worth of damages. In the complaint put out by the  FTC “GC Services’ employees allegedly left phone messages for debtors that illegally disclosed their debt to others without permission.”

This is highly unethical. Specifically because according to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, collectors are specifically barred from revealing and communicating about the consumer’s debt with anybody but the consumers lawyer or the consumer themselves.  After many voicemails that were left revealing the debt sum in addition to continuous calls to people that had previously been confirmed not to be the actual debtor, the debt collection agency did not terminate those employees involved.

In closing, we at Alexander Miller and Associates stand by the FTC in their decision and support the free and fair collection rules set forth under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. We continue to believe in the utmost standards of professional business conduct and adhere to those standards on a daily basis.  Even in spite the actions of a few in our industry, at Alexander Miller and Associates, we pride ourselves in legal, respectful conduct and operate under the rules of the FTC.
