They’re Out of Control…
Some bill collectors are nothing more than criminals. They think civilized rules don’t apply to them, so they can hound, threaten, and abuse borrowers until they pay up. Sometimes they even pressure people into paying debts they do not owe.
At the same time, regulations and enforcement have not kept up with these scoundrels. Penalties are so small that some bad guys are happy to pay a fine and continue their abusive ways.
One solution is to make two things abundantly clear to our elected officials:
- We need to show that the problem is even more widespread than most people believed; and
- As citizens who are also taxpayers and voters, we must demand that collection-industry rogues and criminals be made to pay for their unacceptable actions.
If you agree, then we invite you to sign the following petition.
