Sounds more like a "consumer debt counselor slash resume service" that has registered as a debt collector so he can get hard-on-their-luck leads.

When I googled the company I discovered that the owners (husband and wife) had gone through their own financial crisis years ago, and had been hounded and yelled at and were afraid to answer the phone because of the sheer hatred they got from the debt collectors. So they went into the business to prove that most people, given a chance and some help, really did want to pay their debts, and screaming and yelling were not necessary.

If they're getting better returns than the rest of the industry, I'd say they'd proven their point.
