Dear Customer,

The ADA does not regulate debt collections activities.

However, the Fair Debt Collections Act does.

If you have a debt collector that has violated these acts, you can take action (here is a very helpful flow chart from the Federal Trade Commission that details your rights as a debtor with regard to debt collections: http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0149-debt-collection
