Reports on FTC-CFPB Debt Collection Roundtable

On Thursday, the FTC and CFPB held a joint roundtable titled Life of a Debt: Data Integrity in Debt Collection.  Journalist Fred Williams has a report at the Taking Charge blog. An except:

At Thursday's  meeting, [debt buyer and industry association president Richard] Munroe and other debt buyers didn't repeat the argument the collection  industry has advanced in the past: That regulation will block collection of  legitimate debt and injure the credit system. Instead, industry representatives  pleaded that the new rules, whatever shape they eventually take, be consistent  and nationwide.

And Trevor Salter at Ballard Spahr's CFPB Monitor also had posts here and here.
