Event Description

Don't pass up this opportunity to make the system work for you and to beat FDCPA lawsuits!

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a strict liability statute that tilts the playing field against collection agencies. But you can use the FDCPA's Bona Fide Error Defense as an "equalizer" to turn the tables on Plaintiffs! It's easier than you think to implement the "reasonable procedures" necessary to establish this back-stop to FDCPA liability. Learn today what you can do if sued tomorrow and how the defense can work if your agency has already been sued.

Join our seasoned FDCPA litigator Joseph S. Messer for this audio learning event where he explains how to take advantage of the Defense based on his years of experience representing collection agencies throughout the country. Messer says: "We can often use the Bona Fide Error Defense to beat FDCPA lawsuits, even when agency liability is clear cut. But you'd be surprised how few people realize how the Defense can apply, or how to invoke it. And despite what Plaintiffs' attorneys say, most Judges like the Defense because it's fair."

Here’s more of what you’ll learn in just 60 minutes:

  • What the Bona Fide Error Defense does and doesn't cover.
  • How to maximize your agency's use of the Bona Fide Error Defense.
  • How wide the scope of the Bona Fide Error Defense is in your jurisdiction.
  • What to do from the outset of a lawsuit to best qualify for the Bona Fide Error Defense.
  • And much more!

You're sure to walk away with all the information you need to minimize your exposure to costly lawsuits. Learn to develop ways to avoid being sued in the first place and win lawsuits if sued!
