Conducting an Internal Audit: Collection Agency and Debt Buyer Edition
Free Interactive Intelligence Webinar
Under CFPB supervision and oversight, collection agencies are now mandated to conduct internal audits of policies and procedures to ensure regulatory compliance. But internal audits aren’t just about an agency’s internal workings: you’d better be prepared to answer for all of your business associates and vendors while you’re at it. Without the right process in place, agencies can quickly find themselves bogged down in the weeds, wasting time and money with nothing to show for their efforts at the end.

Interactive Intelligence is hosting a free webinar on Wednesday, 10 December 2014, at 2.00 p.m. Eastern. During this 75-minute presentation, our expert panel — including representatives from both the collection agency world and the debt-buying world — will walk thru their philosophies and approaches to internal audits, including best practices and helpful tools. Register.

insideCompliance: Call Baiting Paid Webinar, 2.00 p.m. Eastern
Almost all collectors have a story like this: a consumer, armed with tips and tricks from an Internet message board, baits the collector into a violation. Maybe the consumer caused the collector to forget to give a mini-Miranda. Maybe the consumer confused the collector into the wrong disclosures.

Call baiting happens. It’s expensive. And it puts your collectors and your agency at risk.

Join insideARM’s Compliance Webinar Series to get some best practices on how to recognize and diffuse call-baiting attempts, and how to recover from call-baiting mistakes your collectors may have made. Register.
