SMS Laws and FDCPA

In 1977, the FDCPA passed a law dictating the do’s and don’ts of collecting debt from consumers. The CFPB updated the policy in 2020 to accommodate for SMS messaging.

Check these “Do Nots” when sending debt collection text messages:

  • Clients can only be texted between 8 am and 9 pm in their local time
  • You can’t send consumers repeated messages
  • You must reveal yourself as a debt collector when discussing with clients
  • Client information cannot be revealed to a third party

This is not legal advice and should not be used as the basis of your SMS campaigns. You should consult the appropriate legal counsel before you begin sending text messages for collecting debt.
