SAMET SHARES DETAILS ABOUT APPOINTMENT TO CFPB CAB, HOW HE WILL APPROACH ROLE

  • It’s a thankless job, but it’s one that Ohad Samet has sought for years. And he finally got it. Samet was one of six new additions to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Consumer Advisory Board. Samet will serve a three-year term on the board, which, according to the CFPB, is “charged with identifying and assessing the impact of emerging products, practices, or services on consumers and other market participants.” In an exclusive interview, Samet shares his reasons for wanting the job and what he plans on trying to accomplish now that he has the opportunity.

SENATORS ASK GOV’T FOR REVIEW OF IRS COLLECTION SCRIPTS

  • A quartet of Democratic Senators have submitted a letter to the Federal Trade Commission and the Internal Revenue Service, calling for a review of the scripts being used by the private collection agencies collecting unpaid tax debts on behalf of the IRS.

SINGLE CALL TO CELL PHONE ENOUGH TO WARRANT TCPA CLAIM: APPEALS COURT

  • A single call made to an individual’s cell phone — a call that didn’t cost the individual anything to receive it — is a sufficient concrete injury that a Telephone Consumer Protection Act lawsuit can continue, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled. In this case, a fitness gym made an unsolicited call to an individual’s cell phone and left a pre-recorded voicemail message when the call was not answered. The Appeals Court overturned a District Court ruling that said the single call was not the “type of case that Congress was trying to protect people against.”

BANKRUPTCY FILINGS INCREASE: ABI

  • The number of bankruptcy filings for June were higher than the same month a year ago, and the total for the first six months of this year was higher than last year, according to data released by the American Bankruptcy Institute.
