Publication of Debtors = Problems for Creditor


Publishing a list of deadbeats may seem like a cool and effective means of collecting debts but it could get the publisher(s) in big legal trouble.  I would hope nobody is employing this “shaming the debtor” method of collection.  Remember:  the North Carolina Debt Collection Act covers all persons collecting on a debt.

This is serious business. If you or anyone you know is a victim of this practice it is imperative to consult an attorney and have a consultation about the situation and any available legal remedies.
