It protects debtors by prohibiting debt collectors from utilizing abusive techniques when recovering delinquent debts. The FDCPA states that a debt collector may only discuss the details of your debt with you or your attorney. Collection agents can call you at home and can ask to speak with you if your spouse answers, but they can not inform your spouse of your delinquent account, as this violates your consumer protection rights under the FDCPA.FDCPA Violations Although the FDCPA notes that collection agencies do not have the right to discuss an individual ‘s debts with his spouse, that does not guarantee that all debt collectors will abide by this rule. Should a debt collector violate your rights by giving private information to your spouse or any third party, the FDCPA gives you the right to file a lawsuit against the company and collect damages of up to {$1000.00}. Should you choose to sue, you must file your lawsuit within one year of the date the violation occurred.
