Marcus & Zelman filed a case against Computer Credit, Inc. alleging that the Defendant violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”) by placing Plaintiff’s account number visible on the envelope a collection letter was mailed in.
Plaintiff alleged that the account number is a piece of information that can identify the Plaintiff as an alleged debtor, and as such, it violates the FDCPA.
The District Court Judge stated “In sum, the Court finds that CCI has violated 1692f(8) of the FDPCA. The Court’s conclusion is consistent with the requirement that remedial legislation such as the FDCPA be construed broadly. (Caprio 709 F.3d at 148 (3d Cir. 2013) (‘As a remedial legislation, the FDCPA must be broadly construed in order to give full effect to Congress’s purposes.’)
