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.

My friend's granddaughter, approx 14 years old, has recently

My friend's granddaughter, approx 14 years old, has recently been the victim of a vicious e mail attack from a girl or girls her age whom she knows. The reasons for this attack are unclear, but this girl apparently rallied other classmates against my friend's granddaughter, and either she alone or they together sent a series of email attacks to my friend's granddaughter which were so vicious and hateful (I have not seen them- my friend wouldn't even repeat them to me over the phone) that the girl cut herself, was taken to the psyche facility Laurel Ridge, and is now on suicide watch.I have no idea what laws, if any, have been broken here, or what recourse my friend might have apart from reporting the e mail to the school authorities. My friend and her son and daughter-in-law have kept the e mails. But it seems to me that this is an attack, albeit not a physical one, and should have consequences for the perpetrator.These friends of mine are disadvantaged financially and physically- the son has been hospitalized with injuries, and his mother, my friend, is just now recovering from having broken her foot. They don't have resources or any idea of where to turn, so I'm looking online to try to find some San Antonio agency which might be able to provide at least advice on what to do or what recourse they might have. The perpetrator is another teenaged girl, it's true, but it seems to me that that does not excuse her engaging in behavior that has resulted in harm to another.please advise if you can, maybe just contact numbers for other entities or agencies which could help.thank you,James IrelanSan Antonio ***@******.*** (###) ###-####
