  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) September 01, 2016 - The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series has announced today that K.J. Miller and Amy Sabbota Gottlieb will speak at a 2-hour webcast entitled "Fair Debt Collection Practices Act: Compliance Issues in 2016" This two-hour event is scheduled on August 31, 2016 @ 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (ET).

    Event Summary:
    In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and other law enforcement partners, took 115 actions against misleading and offensive collection practices including Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) violations. Also, hundreds of FDCPA-related complaints are being filed against companies every week, leading to substantial cost in fines and penalties.

    With this crack down on FDCPA violators, businesses must understand their FDCPA obligations and comply accordingly. However, the alteration of rules and enforcement makes it even more challenging for organizations to ensure compliance. Adding to the complexity of the collections law is the confusing FDCPA issues.

    In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders brought together by The Knowledge Group will help organizations understand the fundamental aspects of Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. They will also provide an in-depth discussion of this significant topic and will offer best practices in developing and implementing an effective and compliant debt collections policy.

    Key topics include:
    -The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act - Overview
    -FDCPA Enforcement Trends
    -Top FDCPA Violations
    -Compliance Challenges
    -Best Practices
