Debt Collecting Vultures
So my phone was ringing off the hook today. It was some debt collection agency calling for my landlord. Three different people have called so far (a few times each) - and I offered them all the same deal.
CaptiousNut - If you tell me how much he owes, and who he owes it to....I will give you his contact information.
All three of them turned me down!
I really tried to sell my propostion too:
CaptiousNut - I have his address, his cell phone, his work phone, his email addresses....he changes addresses and uses different names. It's going to be hard to find him...
But still, none of them bit!
One of the debt collectors tried to turn my *deal* against me. After I told her that her company was calling me all day, she essentially said they would continue to bother me if I didn't give up his actual contact info.
CaptiousNut - Wait, let me get this straight. YOU ARE THREATENING TO HARASS ME IF I DON'T TELL YOU HOW TO REACH HIM?!?!?!
That one hung up quickly. But she's right. Until I *give it up*, I'll most likely be bearing the brunt of the harassment meant for my scumbag landlord!
Of course, I do very much want them molesting him; I won't play this game for long.
But the next time they call and ask if I am him....I will simply say *yes....how much do I owe?*.
I say good luck to these hopeful debt-collectors, because there's no meat left!
