Illinois Attorney General Pursues Collection Agency

The Illinois Attorney General has filed a lawsuit against a very aggressive collection agency.    Several debtors complained that they were unfairly pressured into making payments.  While there are a number of very fine and reputable collection agencies, there are always a few in the bunch that taint the reputation of the industry and its members.  No one should have to tell a collector to refrain from foul language and making idle threats such as intimating that a lawsuit would be filed on a debt that is 20 years old.  I guess that is why we have the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
