Busted! Scam Debt Collector Caught On Camera
You hate to think this stuff happens but, as you see in my blog posts and other news sources the greed factor makes people do strange things. Some of these strange things are also quite illegal. Click here to see how a St. Louis news reporter set up a meeting with a fake debt collector to expose the scammer. Four-minute run time on the video and there are a smorgasboard of laws—criminal and civil—being violated. I love the confrontation at the door with the snow in the backdrop……enjoy!
In North Carolina we have a state law which regulates the conduct of debt collectors (which includes persons or companies collecting on their own debt) and a similar yet separate law to regulate the conduct of collection agencies. If you have concerns or problems regarding debt collectors contact me to discuss your situation today.
