Exemption From Lawsuits:
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1692
("FDCPA") carves out some exceptions to the term "debt collector."
§ 1692a(6)(A)-(F). It excludes "any person while serving or
attempting to serve legal process on any other person in
connection with the judicial enforcement of any debt." §
1692a(6)(D). However, a person "who goes beyond being merely
a messenger in serving legal process and engages in prohibited
abusive or harassing activities to force an individual to repay a
debt is no longer exempt under the legal process server
exception." Flamm v. Sarner & Associates, P.C., No. 02-4302,
2002 WL 31618443, at *5 (E.D.Pa. Nov. 6, 2002).
