Improper disclosure of private information by debt collectors

Many debt and bill collectors send letters to consumers demanding payment. But sometimes these collectors don’t print and send the letters themselves.

Instead, they may send private information about consumers’ debts to other companies, who then put together the letters to mail. This means private, personal information — information some may find sensitive or embarrassing — is given to people who shouldn’t be seeing it.

This conduct by debt collectors may violate your privacy rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the consumer whose information is disclosed may be entitled to recover up to $1,000 damages.
