As Debt Collectors Multiply, So Do Consumer Complaints

Some of the tactics used are literally unbelievable: like collecting debts that aren't even owed! Last time I checked, that was also called "theft by deception"... but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the FTC to get tough on these lying scumbags. After all, we have exactly the Congress we deserve: the best that money can buy. - Embarrassing calls at work. Threats of jail and even violence. Improper withdrawals from bank accounts. An increasing number of consumers are complaining of abusive techniques from some companies that are part of a new breed of debt collectors.
