In a unanimous decision with potentially far-reaching implications for the loan servicing and debt collection industries, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit held that a debt collector who shared debt-related personal information with a third-party vendor for collection letter printing and mailing violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”). In Hunstein, the Eleventh Circuit interpreted a communication “in connection with the collection of any debt” broadly to include anything concerning, referencing or in a relationship or association to the collection of debt—not only communications made in demand for payment.
