Want specific examples of tricky, time-consuming questions we've already answered?

Here are four questions sent to us by current subscribers. Research Assistant provided detailed answers to each question. Answers are accessible to ALL subscribers.

  1. Whenever first-party financial institutions are tailoring employee policies for their employees who have loans and deposit accounts with them, does UDAAP apply or does employment law trump UDAAP?
  2. Can you refer me to a collection law firm for PRIVATE student loans - preferably a firm that is licensed in all 50 states?
  3. Massachusetts currently has two pieces of legislation covering collection agencies - 940 CMR 7.00 and 209 CMR 18.00. There are a lot of instances where these pieces of legislation do not agree. How do we handle these inconsistencies?
  4. A question about ACDV, direct dispute response procedures, and CDIA compliance code requirements changes made in ’17. Our organization reports on the 1st of the month. If we receive a direct dispute on the 15th, mark the account disputed, investigate the dispute and change the dispute code from XB to another code within 8 days, can we simply report the final dispute code or do we need to report the initial code on the first filing and wait until the second filing to report the second “changed” compliance code?
