Debt Collectors Using Texting to Contact Consumers

Some debt collectors are resorting to sending text messages to contact consumers. Consumers should not have to pay to be contacted by a debt collector. Since some phone plans charge per text message, the consumer is being charged each time a debt collector sends them a text message.

The Federal Trade Commission is working to change the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act to include banning cell phone contact and texting.
