My stories are not fantasy. They are TRUTH. Unlike you, I believe people should pay their obligations.

"There is no use for a debt collector."

Wow, I bet the honest establishments that took people at their word and are collectively owned BILLIONS would disagree.

"There has never been any use for a debt collector."

Sure there is. They increase collections and decrease bad debt expenses thereby lowering the cost for all the honest people who DO pay their bills.

"Debt collectors are of no merit nor value"

Are you suggesting the thousands of honest mothers & fathers who happen to be bill collectors because they feel like they should PAY THEIR BILLS should each commit suicide because a self-proclaimed "wildgirl" deemed them of no value ?

I have an idea. How about if everybody PAID their bills ?? Then there really would be no need for bill collectors. Sadly, too many spend too much time trying to pretend they dont have to pay their bills.

Whatever happened to "a mans word is his bond" ??
