Debt collection remains a major source of complaints, lawsuits, and enforcement actions against financial institutions. There are numerous laws and regulations that govern consumer and commercial debt collection activities. Consequently, there are ample opportunities for errors and mistakes in the collection process. Borrowers, their attorneys, and regulators are closely watching collection practices, so it’s important to understand proper procedures in order to avoid liability. This webinar will explain the most common collection pitfalls (both consumer and commercial) and how to reduce your bank’s liability risk.
