    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true. Prior to releasing any account information, it is important for the employee to state their full name (first and last) to ensure accountability and transparency.

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    B. After authentication of the customer.
    Explanation
    The mini-Miranda should be read after authentication of the customer because it is a legal requirement under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) in the United States. The mini-Miranda is a statement that debt collectors must provide to inform the customer that they are attempting to collect a debt and that any information obtained will be used for that purpose. By reading the mini-Miranda after authentication, the debt collector ensures that they are communicating with the correct person and that the customer is aware of their rights under the FDCPA.

    • A.

      Social Security Number

    • B.

      Birth date

    • C.

      Address

    Correct Answer
    C. Address
    Explanation
    "Public Information" refers to information that is available to the general public and can be accessed by anyone. In this context, the address is considered as public information because it is commonly available and can be found in various public records such as phone directories, property records, or online databases. Social Security Numbers and birth dates, on the other hand, are considered sensitive personal information and are typically not publicly available due to privacy and security concerns.

    • A.

      Address

    • B.

      Social Security number

    • C.

      Telephone number

    Correct Answer
    B. Social Security number
    Explanation
    "Non-public Information" refers to sensitive and confidential data that is not intended to be publicly available. Among the given options, the Social Security number stands out as a prime example of non-public information. Social Security numbers are unique identification numbers assigned to individuals by the government and are used for various purposes, such as employment, taxation, and social benefits. Revealing or sharing someone's Social Security number without proper authorization can lead to identity theft and other fraudulent activities. Therefore, it is crucial to handle Social Security numbers with utmost care and protect them from unauthorized access.

    If a customer or third-party refuses to authenticate, you should continue to discuss the account anyway.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Continuing to discuss the account with a customer or third-party who refuses to authenticate would not be appropriate or secure. Authentication is necessary to verify the identity of the person accessing the account, and without it, there is a risk of unauthorized access or fraud. It is important to prioritize security and only proceed with discussing the account when proper authentication has been completed.

      Confirming the customer's name and getting two pieces of non-public information

    • C.

      Both of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Both of the above
    Explanation
    Both of the above options can be used to authenticate a customer. By confirming the customer's name, one piece of public information, and one piece of non-public information, you can ensure that the customer is who they claim to be. Similarly, by confirming the customer's name and obtaining two pieces of non-public information, you can further verify their identity. Using a combination of public and non-public information helps to enhance the security of the authentication process.
