As debt collection attorneys, we are always cautious of the latest debt collection scams that come to surface. Scams come in all shapes and forms; the biggest complaint these days come from illegal debt collector harassment and abuse. But aside from the typical FDCPA abuse (such as collectors calling outside of allowed hours of the day), some debt collectors get even craftier in ways to locate or harass debtors, like finding people through social media websites.
And recently, it appears that some debt collection agencies are using letterheads from district attorneys. Debt free or not, some debt collection scams are going after your money. This frightening news story in the Huffington Post describes how “Scammers use official-sounding aliases to deliver terrifying threats and pressure consumers to pay.”
