or. . . .have there been an increase in posts regarding collection processes? I have only been on this board since February so perhaps it runs in cycles? It just seems like the collection creeps are coming out of the woodwork. Any thoughts on the subject?




they must know that the end of the PDL world is coming. ammunition has been supplied to the masses via revocation letters, cease and desists, and the BBB, AG, and FTC.
i must say that if it wasn't for this site and all the help i have gotten from it, the CAs would be eating me alive. more than the PDL rollover fees and huge interest. it's probably their hopes to find that one person who doesn't know and completely destroy their lives.

I agree. I too was wondering if the influx of complaints to the authorities had anything to do with it. Many of us have gotten PIFs with just the principal being paid back, and with the help of the processors, some have been forgiven on debts. I guess they figure the only way to make a buck now is to go back and try and sucker those who have pretty much forgotten them, into making some additional payments.

I think it's more cyclical. Lots of people go out an charge or borrow money to buy christmas presents or travel for the holidays. Now it's 7 months past that time, and people have defaulted, gone 60 -90 days late on their accounts, and have been sent to collections.

Thanks goudah! It just seems like the collection questions have picked up over the past week or so and since I was not here last July, I had nothing to compare it with. Have a good one!
