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).
