location information; [1985, c. 702, §2 (NEW).]
D. Not communicate by postcard; [1985, c. 702, §2 (NEW).]

debt; and [1985, c. 702, §2 (NEW).]
F. After the debt collector knows the consumer is represented by an attorney with regard
to the subject debt and has knowledge of, or can readily ascertain, that attorney's
name and address, not communicate with any person other than that attorney, unless
the attorney fails to respond within a reasonable period of time to communication
from the debt collector. [1985, c. 702, §2 (NEW).]
