3] To the extent that the complaint could be liberally

3] To the extent that the complaint could be liberally construed to assert an additional cause of action under the Fair Debt Collection PracticesAct ("FDCPA"), 15 U.S.C. § 1692, this claim also lacks merit. "It is well established that the FDCPA applies only to persons who collect the debtsof others and does not apply to those who collect their own debts." Caires v. JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., 880 F. Supp. 2d 288, 306 (D. Conn.2012) (collecting cases); see also 15 U.S.C. § 1692a(6) (defining the term "debt collector" within the FDCPA to mean persons who are involvedin the collection of "debts owed or due or asserted to be owed or due another." (emphasis added)). The allegations of the third amendedcomplaint demonstrate that plaintiff entered into a loan contract, rendering any of the defendants as plaintiff's creditors, and that Chase arguablytook action to enforce the terms of its own loan agreement. Doc. #88 at 8, 1112.Therefore Chase, as a creditor collecting its own debt, is notliable under the FDCPA. See Book v. Mortgage Electronic Registration Sys., 608 F. Supp. 2d 277, 284 (D. Conn. 2009).

It appears we are being singled-out by individuals

It appears we are being singled-out by individuals (yard-Nazis?) for harassment by the city. They claim in a citation that there is a grass/weed violation. We do not have grass in the front yard but there are a variety of plants to make the property as maintenance-free as possible. This has been an ongoing problem for more than a year. However, the city ignores the other properties that actually do have a weed problem.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OhioJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes, but as a disabled person on disability, the cost of a lawyer is prohibited.JA: What advice did they give you?Customer: Never got back.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Not that I can think of.
