In fact, virtually everything I mention that the fake debt collectors do, a real debt collector can and often will be sued for.The debt collection laws they would be breaking are both state and federal violations.Nowadays, between my site, and many others that are part of my daily activity and news feed, I see a reference to some fake debt collector on a near daily basis.And some of what I see shows that the scam is getting more sophisticated.Some debt collection scams are designed for the quick cash.
