Saturday Night 8/22/09

Another letter from a debt collector, a different one.

Another threatening phone call "Your time is running out" she said.

I feel like I can't breathe right.

You know what? They can't get blood out of a turnip. I've been there and it's no fun, but we either have it or we don't and there isn't much 'they' can do about it. I wish I had it to give you DB. Hang in there my friend.
Hugs, Joyce

I wonder too, what are they going to do to you? Throw you into debtor's prison, banish you to some far off country? I am not trying to make light of your situation. I know it must feel very threatening and worrisome to you and you are facing it all alone at that. I always thought that if you made arrangements through some credit counselling place that they were not allowed to call and harrass you. It is harrassment you know. Those people get paid to be big and mean and to sound scary and they make money if you pay.I wish we could all be there with you so you did not have to feel so all alone. Best we can do is send hugs from afar. Hang in there DB --this too shall pass.

seems like they are harrassing you, DB, and I don't think they can get away with tactics like this. Believe you me, with my recent experience with dealing with creditors, they are not resorting to these sort of things, which makes me think you definitely are being harrassed. this is just not right

Hang in there, DB - heard rumours that the USA is going to bounce back big time, early next year. Things will get better.

They are not allowed to pester and threaten you. As them to not call again, and if they do, or threaten, get their name and tell them you are going to report them.

Here is a link of one website where they can be reported, and they may end up owing you money.

They are just too desperate to cover up their own downfall DB and they're looking out for some loopholes. Please take a deep breath and don't feel threatened by them.
