U.S. regulator prepares crackdown on debt collectors
Vehicles travel near new houses which are under construction and for sale in San MarcosBy Emily Stephenson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Debt collectors using text messages and social media to pursue delinquent borrowers could come under new scrutiny as the U.S. consumer financial watchdog considers new rules as part of a crackdown on the collection industry. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said on Wednesday that before it formally proposes any rules, it wants to hear how collectors verify borrowers' information and contact consumers. Among questions it is asking consumers, banks and the collection industry is whether there could be privacy concerns or other harm from communicating with debt collectors via text message, social media or other Internet-based tools. In recent months, regulators have warned debt collectors against misleading borrowers.
