STOP Collectors Dead!

Bill Collectors – BEWARE!
Collection calls are a pain! I just posted my Cease and Desist Letter in a forum and FaceBook for moms… I strongly suggest you copy the letter and pass it on to help others… Clark Howard calls them a Drop Dead Letter… Collectors are outta hand today! Why not STOP them in their tracks?
As a prior licensed bill collector:
I collected all i called on being nice and helping debtors out…
It is far better to call your creditor and explain your scenario and what you can pay, etc…. Before being late is best…
KEEP NOTES! (date, time, who, company, convo)
Keep proof of payment with last statement showing o balance forever!
Buy at Radio Shack: Removable Telephone Pickup… Attach it to your phone receiver and a tape recorder…
~ Check your state laws on recording though…
– Hope this all helps…
Tweak the letter how you want and need it to be…
Send it certified!
I have never been bugged after this was sent out!
Keep a copy for you…
