The Pennsylvania Attorney General has filed a lawsuit against a debt collection agency that held bogus hearings held in a room decorated to look like a court.
“This is an unconscionable attempt to use fake court proceedings to deceive, mislead or frighten consumers into making payments or surrendering valuables to Unicredit without following lawful procedures for debt collection,” Corbett said. “Consumers also allegedly received dubious ‘hearing notices’ and letters – often hand-delivered by individuals who appear to be Sheriff Deputies – which implied they would be taken into custody by the Sheriff if they failed to appear at the phony court for ‘hearings’ or ‘depositions’.”
They need to go to prison. Period. (Yes, I am assuming they are guilty.)
