CREDITORS AND DEBT COLLECTORS MUST COMPLY WITH THE FEDERAL FDCPA (DEBT COLLECTION FAIR PRACTICE LAW OR FACE A LAWSUIT).

OUr modern world is filled with scammers and debt collectors who hassle you at all hours of the day, and who seek to collect on debts alleged to be owed.  Some debt collectors have valid and legitimate claims to collect, while others may have "purchased your bad debt" for pennies on the dollar and are now seeking to collect what they can on that debt.  There are also doctors and hospital bills seeking to collect debts for medical bills (often over-priced, and often you never know what they charges are going to be in advance) then they just want to collect whatever they can from you.

Well at our firm we scrutinine the activities of these debt collectors.  We make them do their homework and we make them "validate the debt." under the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act ("FDCPA").

This is a federal law that requires any debt collector (who is seeking to collect on a debt incurred due to family, household, or personal purpose) and who is collecting the alleged debt ON BEHALF OF ANOTHER COMPANY.

 When doctors, and lawyers, and credit card companies (and also loan servicers who collect debts from borrowers when the loan was purchased after it was in default) employ debt collectors to collect funds they are alleged owed, you owe it to yourself to demand that they immediately VALIDATE THE DEBT IN WRITING.  Fighting with a debt collector over the phone is not going to get you anywhere.

 Validation of the debt will do a few things:

1.  Get the proof that you owe money (such as invoices, so you can verify whether or not you paid the bill)

2.  You will get the name and number of the debt collector so you can look them up.  For example, check them out on the Better Business Bureau to see if they are legit, or a scam copmany (we have seen scammers come in all shapes and sizes and look legitimate when they are not).  How do you know the "debt collector" is not some dude sitting in his underwear in a small tent in another country.  How do you know?

Trusting without verifying is often one of the biggest mistakes people can make when dealing with debt collectors.

3.  The letter sent to you from the debt collection company could contain common FDCPA violations.  This means, they credit collector would then be in a position to answer a federal debt collection lawsuit wherein you, as Plaintiff, can seek up to $1,000 dollars in damages.  We take these cases on a contingency fee basis.

In the event a settlement of the debt (assuming its valid cannot be reacched) you have a legal right to sue the debt collector in Federal Court seeking money damages. For creditors who do not know how to comply with the FDCPA, this is how you turn the tables on them

Listen to Attorney Steve and his wife Lisa discuss this important consumer rights topic.  In appropriate cases, we may need to file a consumer class action lawsuit.

MORE INFORMATION ON FDCPA

Call us at (877) 276-5084.  Or visit our website at Vondran Legal.  We hope you enjoy the show and we look forward to working with you!  If you have any questions about the FDCPA call our debt collection hotline listed above.

Don't be a HAM cut down on the SPAM!

There is nothing worse than getting unprofessional SPAM EMAILS.  However, when done right and with good "netiquette" and compliance with State and Federal laws, email marketing may be a great business tool.  The best practices involve getting "opt-in" email addresses - people who agree to allow you to send them monthly newsletters or emails discussing new products and services.  Listen in as Internet Attorney Steve Vondran discusses email marketing on the web.

Here is a question I get from real estate brokers from time to time.  Should they buy a .tv domain name extension for their real estate business?  My answer to this is usually "sure why not."  Listen in as Internet lawyer attorney steve discusses this topic and the history of the .tv domain name. In the physical real estate world, it is all about "location, location, location.  In the interneet and eBusiness world, it is about "brandable names, brandable names, brandable names."  If you can get a good name with .tv extension, why not go for it and add to your domain name portfolio?

Some great examples of .tv domain names that could be used in the real estate industry are:

1. MortgageLoans.tv

2. ShortSales.tv

3. PropertyManager.tv

4. BusinessOpps.tv

5. OnePercent.tv

6. LandInvestments.tv (this is one I own)

7. ArizonaRealEstate.tv

8. SellMyHouse.tv

9. CommercialProperties.tv

10. RealEstateChannel.tv

The dot TV is owned by Verisign, so there should be staying power in the domain.

I am not sure if any of the other domain names above are available, but you can check.  Sometimes they are offered for sale at a low price through an auction.  If you want to learn more about how to buy a domain name including due diligence tips check out our Attorney Steve guide to buying domain names at internetlawyer.tv.

NOTABLE SALES OF .TV DOMAIN NAMES

1.  STARTUP.TV - $8750

What is the trademark clearinghouse set up by ICANN?  Can it help you resolve or prevent domain disputes?

Listen as Internet Lawyer Steve Vondran shares his insights on the new gtld expansion and how you can protect your trademarks and get in on "sunrise registration" opportunities before the general public "internet landrush."  Internet law is very similar to real estate law.  In real estate the saying is "location, location, location."  On the internet it is brandable name, brandable name, brandable name."
