August 2, 2013 is the Day for the New Debt Relief Industry

I wrote extensively about the new coverage by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau of rules that regulate the debt relief industry. See Here It Comes. CFPB Supervision of Debt Relief Industry and Credit Counseling.

The new rules were published in the Federal Register on July 3, 2013 and will go into force on August 2, 2013. – Source

    Great news as these debt relief companies, like the vultures they are, have now set their sights on student loan debt . Check out this article :

    This is the most needed news for this industry! Finally those involved in debt relief will know where they stand on a national level.

    Those who practice in UDMSA states have those rules to work with but the need for federal guidelines was so needed.

    I hope this quickly develops to include company registration with CFPB and industry training requirements for company staff members like UDMSA legislation requires.

    This is a great step forward after the FTC TSR rule changed this industry 3 years ago and companies still here and now moving forward no longer need to wonder what’s coming, this is indeed the “New Debt Relief Industry”.
