According to a recent report by WebRecon, court filings under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) were down for the month of June. This reverses the upward swing seen in these filings in May. Complaints filed with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) were down in May and remained down for June.
WebRecon reports the overall statistics for consumer litigation in June as follows:
- 451 FCRA cases were filed, representing a 10.5% decrease from May;
- 318 FDCPA cases were filed, representing a 3.6% decrease from May;
- 148 TCPA cases filed, representing a 33.9% decrease from May; and
- 5,190 complaints filed with the CFPB, representing a 12.5% decrease from May.
Year-to-date cases are still down for FDCPA and FCRA filings, but TCPA’s big jump in May propelled it to a year-to-date gain of 17.1%.
