Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
On March 21, 2013, Rapid Recovery Solution releases a statement following a Better Business Bureau article by Sharane Gott reporting on debt collection scammers calling consumers in south Louisiana to try to extract money from the victim.
The Better Business Bureau article states that the scam involves calling a consumer and telling them they will be arrested by local law enforcement if they did not repay their debt. In most of these situations, the consumer reportedly did not owe any debt at all, but many still needlessly paid hundreds of dollars to avoid the fake threat of law enforcement.
The article goes on to say, “These callers are also persistent and violate state and federal phone collection laws by calling at all hours of the day and night to home, cell and work numbers. Scammers do this in order to either annoy residents at home or embarrass innocent employees at their work place in order to pressure them into paying in order to stop the harassment and threat of possible job loss.”
The BBB offers several tips in order to avoid dealing with scams like this:
- Ask the debt collector to provide official documentation
- Do not provide or confirm any bank account or other personal information
- File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission online
- Confirm any debt a debt collector claims you owe
John Monderine, CEO of the New York-based debt collection agency Rapid Recovery Solution, offers his comments on the scamming happening in south Louisiana. “It’s really a shame that people would stoop so low to trick consumers. To make people believe they have a debt to settle when they don’t is horrible, and to try to threaten them with law enforcement is even worse. At Rapid Recovery Solution we aim to collect legal debts, but we also aim to do it within consumers' rights.”
