Hunstein v. Preferred Collections

The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned a lower court’s ruling that a debt collector did not violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act when it sent an individual’s personal information to a letter vendor to have a collection letter sent to that person. The Appeals Court ruled that transmitting that information constituted a violation of Section 1692c(b) of the FDCPA by communicating information about a debt with a third party and that such a violation is a concrete injury

AAHAM firmly stands behind our corporate partners in fighting this ruling. We understand how devastating and impactful this ruling may be to your business. The AAHAM government relations committee in coordination with our legislative counsel, Paul Miller, have been communicating with other associations to identify the most effective way that we can support our corporate partner membership in reversing this decision. AAHAM understands the critical nature of this issue and will remain in communication with our membership regarding our next steps in fighting this.

If you have an questions or know of opportunities where AAHAM can coordinate with other associations in combating this, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Paul Miller at

Kenny Koerner, CRCE
AAHAM 2nd Vice-President
AAHAM Government Relations Committee Chair
