    Session 4: Avoiding Overshadowing


    Presenter: Joshua Dickinson | Spencer, Fane, Britt & Browne, LLP


    Presenter: David Weimer | Kramer & Frank, P.C.


    The FDCPA permits debt collectors to conduct collection activity during the 30-day period following the sending of the validation notice to the consumer. But such activity may not overshadow or be inconsistent with the consumer’s right to dispute the debt or request the name and address of the original creditor.


    Attendees will learn:

    • The sources and history of litigation involving overshadowing
    • The types of activities that overshadow or are inconsistent with the consumer’s rights, including:
      • Statements made in the initial communication itself
      • Statements made in subsequent communications
      • Contemporaneous or subsequent actions
    • Best practices to avoid actions that overshadow or are inconsistent with the consumer’s rights
