How will I know whether or not a debt collector is banned? Date: Wed, 09/28/2016 - 22:45 Submitted by Dward on Wed, 09/28/2016 - 22:45 Posts: Credits: [Donate] I recently read somewhere that some of the collection agencies have been banned. A collection agency has recently called me for an unpaid debt 2 years back. Can it be a banned company? How will I know that? Total Replies: 1 Re: Banned debt collector Ofcourse, that company might be banned by the feds. You can do one thing, check here - https://www.ftc.gov/enforcement/cases-proceedings/banned-debt-collectors. Hope that helps.
