I am working on a survey designed to determine consumer awareness of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act validation notice. The plan is to show respondents a debt collection letter that includes a standard validation notice, and then ask questions to see how aware they are of the notice and how they understand it. I would love to run the questions past people who litigate FDCPA cases or are otherwise knowledgeable about the validation provision. If you are willing to take a look at the survey and comment, please email me at sovernj @ stjohns dot edu.
