Learning How to Fight the Collector

Recommended Posts

Fighting back is taking its toll on the debt collection industry...

"Rozanne M. Andersen, chief executive of ACA International, a trade association for the debt collection industry, said she was “extremely concerned” about the increase in lawsuits, which she said cost her industry hundreds of millions of dollars a year."

By the way, anybody catch the new pro consumer Supreme Court ruling mentioned in the article?

Very refreshing to read even if most of it is spin. Still nice to read. There has to be some effect otherwise why take the time to spin.

All "her industry" needs to do is follow the law.

You are dead on Nascar. If the rotten apples in the debt collection industry would just follow the law there would not be all this backlash.

And yeah there are going to be people who have the means to pay off just due debts but refuse, that is just a consequence of doing business and karma will deal with those people appropriately.

Quader, thanx for your input

I have tried to ping the board thru a command prompt and it times out, maybe the board is being bogged down with too much traffic. maybe the CA's are responsible for the issue.

It appears there was a paid DNS attack, so THAT site will be down for about 24 hours. Apparently I pissed someone off......
