Debt Collectors Pay Price

A debt collector recently charged a borrower $2.95 in interest on a judgement, even though no post-judgement interest had been awarded.  A district court decided that this violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, meaning that the debt collector had to pay the borrower $1,000.00, plus legal fees.  This might seem like a hefty punishment for such a small amount of money, but that is the penalty for violating the act – even if the violation is minimal.  You can read the opinion here.
