Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
On February 19, Rapid Recovery collection services agency responds to a a viral video of a man being beaten over a $20 debt that was owed by his father.
According to CNN, the video was recorded by one of the attackers last August, but recently became viral on WorldStarHipHop.com, garnering thousands of views. The video shows a man being stripped naked, cursed at and beaten with a belt. The crime was not originally reported, says CNN, but after the video gained popularity, three men were arrested in relation to the beating. Police officials say that all three of the men arrested have gang affiliations. According to the report, the victim of the crime did not come forward publicly, but he has cooperated with police.
“This is not who we are,” said Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, where the incident occurred. “We do not tolerate this level of cruelty, of callous disregard for the dignity of humanity. We do not tolerate this viciousness; we do not tolerate this kind of evil in our community.”
John Monderine, CEO of the collections agency Rapid Recovery Solution, responds to the report, saying that he hopes people don’t think of acts like this in relation to collection services. “While it may seem ridiculous to say, I want to point out that professional collection services do not use violence to collect money from debtors,” he said. “In fact, collection agencies are usually very cooperative with people who owe money, especially when they show an effort to comply.”
Monderine continues, saying that the Fair Debt Collection Act, which was implemented to prevent abusive practice within the debt collecting industry, has many clear restrictions on what debt collectors can and cannot do. One of those restrictions is obviously to restrain from physical violence or the threat of physical violence. “This video was terrible, and no respectable professional debt collector would ever do something remotely similar to this to collect money,” says Monderine.
