The Wall Street Journal reported late last month about the explosion in US legal jobs being sent overseas to India. It seems the economic troubles are causing some big companies to reduce legal expenses by hiring cheaper Indian lawyers.
While this is not directly related to consumers facing debt collection (although many collectors are now from India) or errors on credit reports (although the investigations occur off shore) it does show how the pressures on companies to reduce expenses (or raise revenues) reaches even into the most prestigious law firms. Therefore it should not be a surprise that companies will cut corners and even violate the law in collecting debts or keeping false items on your credit reports.
Unless I get a memo from Stan Herring outsourcing me, we still plan on being here representing Alabama consumers who are facing harassment by collectors and who are dealing with credit reporting errors…. Contact us if we can help you.
