Windowseat,

The referenced article, http://money.cnn.com/2013/02/06/pf/debt-collection/index.htm... contained the following quote that made me laugh:

After calling her incessantly over a $300 payday loan debt -- which she said she already paid -- a collector even called her workplace and told her coworkers he was going to come arrest her and they would have to pick her out of a lineup.

I mean, Come on! What idiot would think it's believable that a coworker would be needed as a witness to something they know nothing about?
