Often I get asked if the collectors care that we are suing them for FDCPA, TCPA and FCRA. Some believe this is the “cost of doing business” and the collectors have this cost built into their business model. This may be true but…
Like any business, collectors what to maximize profits and lower costs. Growing litigation costs hurt their bottom line. So suing them makes a difference in their business results. The more people that stand up for their rights, the less attractive the collectors bottom line is to shareholders and investors.
Further proof that the collectors care is that they buy lists of people that have sued collectors in state and federal court. The collectors use these lists to “scrub” their databases of people who have sued in the past. Thus if you have sued a debt collector you are less likely to get calls from these blood suckers.
Webrecon is a company that sells such data to collectors to scub their database. I would post a link but I don’t want to help their status on the search engines by giving them backlinks. Webrecon is owned by Jack Gorden. Jack is one of the people that no one will miss if he drowns in his own shit that comes out of his mouth. In case you haven’t guessed, I am not a big fan of Jack’s.
Anyhow, keep after the collectors. We are changing things and changing the collector’s bottom line.
