Florida Consumer Collections Practices Act Update

In a difficult economy, more businesses must find ways to collect unpaid debt. If the customer is a consumer, the creditor must become aware of Florida law placing limits and requirements on collections activities. Creditors and collectors who are unaware of the Florida Consumer Collections Practices Act could be exposed to substantial liability. Even businesses and law firms collecting their own debts are subject to this law. This OnDemand Webinar helps persons responsible for collecting consumer debts understand how to comply with Florida consumer collections laws and avoid expensive mistakes. The program will provide a practical summary of the statute and how it should be applied, with a review of recent cases interpreting this law which can act as a trap for unwary businesses.
