Now I think that's a bit unfair. Tom is just someone that's upset with his experience with debt collectors and over reacted.Probably true. I have had significant contact with debt collectors since we moved here 18 months ago. It seems my phone number was used (and I think is still being handed out) by a lady who owes money to just about everyone.Most of the calls recently have been robo calls which leave a message that indicates I shouldn't listen to them if I'm not "deadbeat lady." They even give me time to disconnect. Then, they state that by continuing to listen, I am indicating that I am the right person, or know how to contact them. The message then pauses again to give me time to go get deadbeat lady.Since they've all been voicemails, eventually I just get a phone number to call back, which I haven't bothered to do. The few times I have talked to a real person, after a short period of skeptical grilling, they agree not to call anymore. But it only applies to the debt collector du jour, and like I said, she apparently had enough debt to be purchased by many companies.v/rTom
