Q:  What types of debts are covered?
 
A:  Your credit card debt, auto loans, medical bills, student loans, mortgage, and other household debts are covered. Business debts are not.
 
 
The FTC enforces the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which makes it illegal for debt collectors to use abusive, unfair, or deceptive practices when they collect debts.  This Q&A was obtained from Federal Trade Commission’s Debt Collection FAQs which may be found here:  https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/debt-collection-faqs
