As amended by Public Law 104-208, 110 Stat. 3009 (Sept. 30, 1996)


To amend the Consumer Credit Protection Act to prohibit abusive practices by debt collectors.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Consumer Credit Protection Act (15 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) is amended by adding at the end thereof the following new title:

TITLE VIII - DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES   [Fair Debt Collection Practices Act]

802.  Congressional findings and declaration of purpose
803.  Definitions
804.  Acquisition of location information
805.  Communication in connection with debt collection
806.  Harassment or abuse
807.  False or misleading representations
808.  Unfair practice
809.  Validation of debts
810.  Multiple debts
811.  Legal actions by debt collectors
812.  Furnishing certain deceptive forms

# 801.  Short Title   [15 USC 1601 note]

This title may be cited as the "Fair Debt Collection Practices Act."

#802.  Congressional findings and declarations of purpose  [15 USC 1692]

(a) There is abundant evidence of the use of abusive, deceptive, and unfair debt collection practices by many debt collectors. Abusive debt collection practices contribute to the number of personal bankruptcies, to marital instability, to the loss of jobs, and to invasions of individual privacy.

(b) Existing laws and procedures for redressing these injuries are inadequate to protect consumers.

(c) Means other than misrepresentation or other abusive debt collection practices are available for the effective collection of debts.

(d) Abusive debt collection practices are carried on to a substantial extent in interstate commerce and through means and instrumentalities of such commerce. Even where abusive debt collection practices are purely intrastate in character, they nevertheless directly affect interstate commerce.

(e) It is the purpose of this title to eliminate abusive debt collection practices by debt collectors, to insure that those debt collectors who refrain from using abusive debt collection practices are not competitively disadvantaged, and to promote consistent State action to protect consumers against debt collection abuses.
