What is a 1692e(8) FDCPA violation against debt collectors for false credit reporting?

A 1692e(8) violation under the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) allows consumers to sue debt collectors, instead of disputing through the credit bureaus.

Under this section of the FDCPA, the debt collectors can't hide behind the credit bureaus anymore when they do false credit reporting.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Have a great day!
