Statement of Policy Regarding Communications in Connection with Collection of a Decedent’s Debt, Project No. P104806

The FTC should strengthen protections for grieving families and friends, not open the door to debt-collection efforts. If companies wish others to be liable for the debts than they can require those people sign on for the debts. A person should not be held liable for the unilateral acts of another.
