    It’s probably more accurate to say that it’s a waiver of the right to sue for “Do Not Call list” violations.

  2. Andrew says:

    Probably even more accurately, the Federal Debt Collection Practices Act, which only bars collections phone calls without consent. I’d think the Do Not Call List is more for telemarketers than collectors.

    Is this enforceable? What if all issuers of credit cards put this into their agreements, so there wouldn’t be any alternative? Could some protections of the statute simply be waived out of existence?

  4. Ross says:

    The FDCPA covers debt collectors, not original creditors, such as the credit union (though the line between the two occasionally becomes fuzzy). Still, quite an interesting waiver.

    Wait, Dave, did you actually read the CC agreement form? You must have been very bored!
