Today, however, NPR’s affiliate WNYC has a story where they actually talk to a young gentleman who works for a third-party debt collection company and gets his take on things. I have to say by all accounts the guy sounds genuinely decent and caring. He talks about how hearing people’s stories of debt and problems is very emotionally wearing. He even says at one point that in some cases he feels so bad he just hangs up and doesn’t even try to collect the debt.

That’s all well and good. But if my experience and the experience of my clients is any indication, this guy is by far the exception to the debt collection business. And regardless of how human the story might make him, it still does not justify the yelling, lying and other nasty approaches taken by third-party debt collectors to shake money out of people.
