We just put up a post by Richard J. Dalton, Jr about zombie debt and it had a link to a fine list of things to keep in mind when dealing with collection agencies. We recommend you check out this article if you have been contacted by debt colllectors. Keep in mind that you do have rights and those rights include the right to be treated fairly, not lied to, and not abused. If you have been mistreated by an abusive debt collector, contact us or another experienced consumer attorney to help you.
Another resource for you is to join our Facebook Fan Page – Alabama Consumer Protection Attorneys where we share useful information about the same types of issues that we cover in this blog.
