The Nevada state debt collection law requires all debt collectors to obtain a state license and pay a fee. It also provides some basic protections consistent with the FDCPA. The Act does not, however, provide a private remedy, and it is unclear whether the Nevada courts would allow a consumer to bring a lawsuit for a violation of the Act. Thus, Nevada residents faced with abusive or harassing collection tactics will receive the most protection and benefit from the FDCPA.
