The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act is the single most important piece of Federal legislation affecting consumer debt collection. Abide by it and you’re fine. Violate it and the fines can be severe.
This webinar will describe the Act in general. You will learn what you can (and cannot) say and do with regard to consumer debt collection guidelines. In addition, we will discuss tools you can use to more quickly collect on consumer debt…and without going to court in many instances.
Finally, we will discuss the advantages (and disadvantages) of getting judgments, forgiving debt, and how to handle being sued by a debtor for allegedly violating the law.
why should you attend
Consumer debt collector laws are among the most highly-regulated arenas you will ever encounter within the accounting profession. Even though you are legitimately trying to recover money owed to your firm, it can often feel like the debtor has more rights than you do.Click to View the Pricing Plan
The goal of this webinar is to minimize uncertainty regarding what you are allowed (and not allowed) to say and do. We’ll cover the three major areas of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act that get even veteran collectors in trouble: Harassment, Unfair Practices, and Illegal 3rd Party Disclosure.
In addition, we’ll examine in detail the different types of bankruptcy law, and how to protect your interests if a debtor includes your firm in a bankruptcy proceeding. We’ll also discuss tools you can use to recover more money quickly without necessarily having to go to court. The pro’s and con’s of securing judgments and forgiving debt will be touched upon, as well as how to handle getting sued by a debtor for allegedly violating statute.
Real-world case studies will be presented that demonstrate just how complex the collections world can be. If you extend credit to consumers, this is a webinar you can’t afford to miss.

Thank you for the spreadsheet webinar. The webinar was informative and helpful. Although many of the concepts are known and understood by Industrial and Process Engineers, it is always helpful to have a straightforward review. The spreadsheet will be beneficial in being able to help identify areas of risk and areas that may require some attention.

This was a very informative session, it did help my company by raising awareness in areas we lack policies. The only thing I would suggest get added to the session is direct information relating to Accounting, ex. Taxation rules for record retention as they are some records which a company is required to keep indefinitely.

Overall I found the video conference well organized and very informative. The presenter, Ronald Adler, was certainly extremely knowledgeable and presented the subject matter in a well organized, direct and succinct manner. Afford the attendee the ability to track and record paid attendance/activity without a lot of tracking and follow up in order to gather the necessary information required to record the CPEs earned and paid for.

As this was our first experience, we did not know what to expect. I believe the webinar was informative and to the point, and explained to us the purpose of the I-9, and how the company can be affected by an audit. It really motivated us to review our files and bring them up to date.
