[caption id="attachment_1121" align="alignright" width="284" caption="Pay Up Or Else!"][/caption] Angels Camp CA - Maybe this is a pet peeve of mine. Or maybe it just seems ridiculous that someone would call a debtor over and over again asking to be paid, when they have already been told the debtor doesn't have the money to pay them. Or maybe it is the fact that I see countless examples of debt collectors breaking the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. But, no one seems to care that they are breaking the law. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act forbids collectors from threatening to sue you, but then not following thru and actually filing suit. To get around this rule, they will use language that sounds legal, but isn't. In one situation, a debt collection firm in Buffalo, New York named their firm Hoffman, Weinberg & O'Brien to make it sound like they were a law firm. They would then leave messages on people's answering machines. They would say they were with the office of Hoffman, Weinberg & O'Brien and then say they may resort to future legal action. Or they would say they were calling about a pre-legal matter. In addition, they would reference case number 8306042. If you didn't know any better, you would think the case number was for an actual lawsuit against you. Scary, right? In addition, if a debtor tells them not to call anymore, then they are supposed to stop calling. They just keep on calling anyways. This is another example of them not obeying the law per the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act? I allege that they willingly and knowingly break the law repeatedly. This is why we put Number Seven onto the Homeowner's Bill of Rights: 7. Stop the Debt Collector Harassment! The right to tell any and all debt collectors to stop calling and never receive a phone call from then again. In addition, this would include debt collectors that know the person's phone number, but will call family members in an attempt to embarrass the debtor. This is America people! Debtor's prison was abolished two centuries ago! It's time to update your activities to the Twenty-First Century! Or take another example. A homeowner has never made a late payment in their entire life. They lose their job and find one in another state. The move, try to rent out their house, but can't afford the payments. They get behind on their mortgage payment and credit cards. They enter the world of non-stop harassment. Debt collectors call them non-stop. These people aren't deadbeats. They are just struggling at the moment. They won't stop calling even when the debtor asks them to stop. They would pay if they had the money. But they don't have it. But, the people won't stop calling. The constant phone calls make their home life miserable. Don't you think it has gone too far? I do. That's why we need a Homeowner's Bill Of Rights.
