Credit unions should not forget they have more to watch than their own regulators. The recent rise of “champions of consumers' rights” has increased the risk of exposure to predatory litigation from over-eager, under-employed debtors’ lawyers looking for a fee and a fearsome reputation.

Credit unions rely on cross-collateralization provisions in their loan contracts, but do you know that there exists a method for a savvy borrower to defeat it with a single letter? Were you aware that a defaulted debtor can use a “request for information” to harvest enough penalty money from a lender to erase a mortgage loan delinquency?

Get the answers to these questions and more at the Bankruptcy and Collections Seminars in Oklahoma City.

Presidents/CEOs/managers, loan officers, credit committee members/volunteers, collection officers, compliance officers, and any other credit union staff responsible for minimizing the credit union's exposure to bankruptcy losses, collections, or lending in general would benefit from these seminars.

Your presenter will be Franklin Drake. Drake has been a partner in the firm of Smith Debnam Narron Drake Saintsing & Myers since 1994, following a 16-year practice specializing in creditor's rights, bankruptcy, and repossession law as a senior vice-president of William Mapother's law firm.
