What is JDB?

Recommended Posts

JDB = Junk Debt Buyer. (After the original creditor determines that someone isn't going to pay, they "charge off" the debt, and sell it for pennies on the dollar to someone else. You technically don't owe those people anything, but they'll continue to hassle you for it.)

There's a "Please read before positing" forum at the top of the first page that has all the abbreviations explainded (...don't worry about, nobody reads that first...)
