Yes, a debt collector posted about someone’s debt on Myspace. The collector decided it would be a good idea to post something on the debtor’s Myspace page about the debt. This is a violation of the FDCPA. The only thing I can think that would be worse would be if a debt collector tried to friend someone on Facebook while knowing the defendant is represented by an attorney. But a debt collector would never do that, would they?
If you have a Myspace page, or a Facebook account or anything else online, you should monitor it. Debt collectors are trying to get more tech savvy and part of that is communicating via the internet and Web 2.0. You must make sure you are checking all of this to protect your privacy and keep debt collectors in line.
