Debt collection scams
Debt collection scams are very common. Debt collection laws have very specific laws as to what debt collectors can and cannot do. For instance, Mercantile Adjustment Bureau phone harassment is against the law and should not even have to happen. Unfortunately, it’s either debt collectors don’t know, or they just don’t care. They don’t have enough incentive to follow the law. Collection agencies make lots of money by threatening and harassing consumers into payment, thereby breaking the law. When they do get penalized, the amount they have to pay is usually nothing compared to the amount they’ve earned.
You may not be able to change the debt collection industry overnight and ensure that Mercantile Adjustment Bureau debt collection goes as it should, however, you can stop debt collectors from manipulating you and you can protect yourself from debt collection scams. It is imperative to know how to protect yourself from debt collection fraud and harassment.
One common scam is “debt collectors” calling you to say that they want to serve legal papers on you. You get a call out of the blue from a random number and the caller introduces themselves and says they’re from a particular legal service provider and they have court paperwork that they need to serve you with today. While you’re still trying to figure out what exactly they’re talking about, they give you a number and ask you to call it for more information.
Now, there are a lot of red flags in this situation. For one, real process servers who are serving real legal paperwork, do not call you in advance to tip you off. If you’re being served a real lawsuit, they’re not going to call you, they’re just going to show up at your address.
So if you get a call from someone saying they need to deliver paperwork to you, you should be very skeptical.
This particular debt collection scam is aimed at putting severe pressure on you in a short while so that you give up your ability to reason and give in to their demands. If you call the number, they asked you to, you get to speak with another debt collection scammer who proceeds to say all forms of scary things to you, telling you to pay a particular amount or risk going to jail and having your life ruined.
This is a scam, and you must be firmer and smarter than they are. Don’t give in or pay the money they ask you to until you have properly verified that the debt (and the amount stated on it) is indeed yours.
