Is this making you nuts? I have that same problem. They start calling right at 8 on the dot--all day until 8PM! I really could lose it over this. I guess they think by harrassing you you'll pay, but if you could pay them, you wouldn't be in this situtaion! They get commission for what they collect too. Some are understanding, but some of them are so rude that they force you to say things like; "Would you like me to crap the money out?" I don't usually say gross things like that but I lose it!

Pay your bills on time they will leave you alone. Medical bills I can see wanting them to leave you alone not the persons fault but credit cards are a persons fault and basically it is stealing if you use them to buy stuff and never pay for it.

anon 1224 I'm sure folks with cc's didn't intend for this kind of crap to happen, but it did. What is the difference between a cc and medical bills? You are still obligated to pay, duh. But it's hard when they don't even want to work with you after you call them or vice versa by waiving their outrageous fees or lowering your apr. What since does that make when they keep adding those fees on knowing you are already paying late, having a hard time doing so or not at all. So easy to judge when you don't know WTH is going on. Karma is a B hope you never get bitten by it.

I understand and think there should be a law against them doing that. I have a answering machine and just let it ring and ring and they hand up when the message comes on.Â They call Monday thru. Sunday. I tell my friends and family that I wait to see who is calling before I pick up. I had caller ID but that is useless because they list it as private number or unknown and I refuse to pay for that. Plus I love to hear my husband talk when he calls. He will say " but I really want or need to talk to someone...or something goofy, I even save them. I am actually giving one company my car back because the payments are too much now that I purchased a house and insur. isÂ crazy on the gulf coast. They don't want it back and have been trying to figure a way to make the payments less. A old friend of mine was actually talented, she could make a bill collector cry....I really respected that!!!!!!
