Stop The Harassment!
Bloomberg News reports that millions of consumers are caught up in a fraud known as phantom debt, where millions of Americans are hassled to pay back money they don’t owe. This illegal practice began when someone scoops up troves of personal information that are available cheaply online—old loan applications, long-expired obligations, data from hacked accounts—and reformats it to look like a list of debts. Then arrange with unscrupulous collectors who will demand repayment of the fictitious bills. The targets of these schemes are often poor and likely to already be getting confusing calls about other loans.
In 2012 a call center in India was caught making 8 million calls in eight months to collect made-up bills. The Federal Trade Commission has since broken up at least 13 similar scams.
