The FTC is going after debt collectors in a big way:

The cases announced today bring to 115 the total number of actions taken so far this year by the more than 70 law enforcement partners in the Operation Collection Protection initiative.

The FTC is mainly targeting debt collectors trying to collect debts the consumers don’t actually owe.

Debt collectors targeted by the FTC and various state law-enforcement agencies include BAM Financial, Delaware Solutions, K.I.P., and National Check Registry.
