Ongoing Debt-Collection Scam

The local Better Business Bureau says fake debt-collectors are on the prowl, and as nasty as ever.

President Bill McGuire says even if you’ve never been late on a loan or credit card payment, you start getting harassing phone calls from supposed debt collectors.

He says they give you a phone number, claim to be affiliated with official-sounding law firms, and make threats, but it’s all a scam.

McGuire says to ask them to provide official validation notice of the debt, which is a real requirement by law, and if they won’t provide it, hang up the phone.
