New proposal would allow debt collectors to email and text

Local News

UNITED STATES (WSYR-TV) — Chances are you already get too many robocalls. Now, get ready for more unsolicited communication, this time, in the form of unlimited texts and emails from debt collectors.

Debt collectors may soon get the green light to bombard you with unlimited text messages and emails if a new set of rules proposed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau gets approved.

The proposal would limit the number of calls a debt collector can make but would allow them to reach out to you via email and text messages.

Under the proposed regulations, debt collectors would be restricted to only seven calls per week.
