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.
