Cracking Down on Abusive Debt Collectors


Cracking Down on Abusive Debt Collectors

LeeAnn Hall

Have you ever picked up your phone to find an aggressive voice on the other end demanding payments on a debt you know nothing about? You’re far from alone.

Once you’re in the sights of a debt collector, the impact on your life can be devastating: Your wages can be garnished and your credit ruined. You might lose your driver’s license, or even your job.

And it could happen over a debt you don’t even owe.


Good job LeeAnn. These people can be the bane of someones existence. I myself received a call a while back for a debt from 1995 that I had no idea who they were. Law firms that are really debt collectors should identify themselves as such.
