The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was enacted to protect consumers from abusive or harassing practices by third-party debt collectors. Did you know that under the FDCPA, debt collectors cannot send you embarrassing media via mail?

If you receive a letter from a third-party collector, the mail cannot in any way state that it’s from a debt collection company, or that you have a debt that’s gone to collections. For example, if the “From” address on the envelope says “Global Debt Collections,” you will likely have an FDCPA claim and be entitled to $1,000, plus additional income if you can prove you’re entitled to actual damages.

The reason why this is illegal under the FDCPA is because third-party collection agencies are not allowed to notify any uninvolved parties of your alleged debt. Embarrassing media could be seen by your neighbors, family members, and your mailman of course. If the letter was delivered to your office, your coworkers or boss could become aware of an alleged debt.
