Lately I have been receiving a lot of calls from people who have been terrified by debt collectors. The collectors pretend to be police officers or make threats to have you arrested today you if you don’t send them some money right now. They won’t give you an address to mail in money because they want access to your bank account.
Read this carefully – You will not go to jail for an ordinary debt like a credit card, personal loan, internet loan or even a payday loan. Don’t believe the tricks and lies of these debt collectors. This is a scam. These are not real police officers or law enforcement organizations. They will try to get you to give them personal information about yourself. Do not give them any information. They may already have information about you and the name of a debt you might actually owe, but they may not have any connection with the original creditor. Even if you do owe the money, it is against the law for for creditors and collectors to make threats or to threaten to have you arrested.
