I got a call yesterday from someone saying they were a collector who immediately started yelling, screaming and cursing at me telling me I was already being "downloaded" to the County prosecutor's office and I was going to jail unless I sent $650 within 20 minutes. I was like, "WTF are you talking about." He got even more rude, telling me "DON'T TALK BACK TO ME. YOUR F####### A$$ IS GOING TO JAIL." Any attempt by me to try and get a clue as to what this idiot was screaming about was responded to by more curses and threats.
Getting nowhere, I just hung up. He proceeded to constantly call back for the next 30 minutes, but I didn't answer the phone.
I don't know of any debts that I have and I don't see how they could put me in jail. Does anybody have a clue what this creep was babbling about?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
