Illegal debt collectors launch operations overseas

If you are deep in debt and unable to pay your bills, the ring of your telephone may be a truly frightening sound. That is because you know, when you pick up the phone, there will be a person on the other end demanding that you pay your bills. It doesn’t matter whether you are dealing with an abusive debt collector or an understanding company representative. When you don’t have the money to pay your bills, being confronted about them can be a stressful, humiliating experience.

This is why a new phenomenon in debt collection is so troubling. According to recent media reports, millions of people in Georgia and throughout the country are now receiving telephone calls from “phantom” debt collectors who are trying to collect debts that may not even exist, causing even more financial difficulty for people who are already stretched paper-thin.

Phantom debt collection calls generally come from overseas call centers. With reported ties to organized crime in India, the people behind these calls are running a massive scam – bilking Americans out of millions of dollars that they don’t owe.

It is understandable how someone who receives a call from a phantom debt collector could believe that he or she actually owes them a debt. If you have several unpaid bills and a long-standing inability to pay them, it’s easy to lose track of at least one or two.

Regardless of whether your collection calls are coming from overseas “phantoms” or legitimate debt collectors, keep in mind that it is against the law for debt collectors to make repeated automated calls all day and night, call you at work, call your friends or family members or make threats about wage garnishment and criminal charges. If a debt collector is attempting to use these abusive tactics, you should report it to the proper authorities.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
