Maybe you’ve heard about Housing Crisis Fail Meisters Countrywide Financial buying up bad mortgages to turn a buck plus a few million?
Well, crazy just keeps on giving… Debt collectors are now targeting the bereaved to pony up the cash for their dead relatives’ unpaid bills. These are next of kin who have no legal obligation. The agents call the grieving and simply ask nicely to please pay for dead granny’s, auntie’s, or sibling’s outstanding cellphone or utility bill, credit card or bank payment.
Is this American ingenuity or are people just universally shitty?
Special training is required to hound the family members of dead folks. And, the business is making a killing.
