see me on cbs news?

Anyone see me on cbs news? There's a few clips of me in a story about bad debt collectors and the new government entity to oversee them.

I find South Park to be quite up to date with current events. They also make the types of comments everyone is thinking but afraid to say.

I hope you unloaded on them with both barrels Kevin.

PS. I googled it and watched your interview. You did a good job and it really is a serious problem.

Hey OP! Are you the new "Title Pawn Czar"?

Let me tell you! Those **************** at JoeBob's EZ Title Pawn have dadgum near dug my last nickel! I won't be able to pay them off for a $500 loan until I'm 160 years old.

Tell Obama to get them to leave me alone and go bother somebody else.

Naw.. I bought a house.. 6 years before I bought it the house was owned by some guy that was a deadbeat. Collection agents do bad skip traces and put my number into their autodialer system. Sometimes I get up to 20 calls a day and they NEVER believe me that I don't even know the person they're trying to find. They ALWAYS lie about it and what's worse is that I pay for calls both incoming and outgoing.

I finally got so tired of it that I went after a few to make the calls stop.

These aren't even calls for me. I haven't had any sort of collection account for more than 10 years and I have killer credit. I'm just unlucky enough to have bought a house that used to be owned by a deadbeat.

I must have a landline number that deadbeats use. When we moved into our 'never lived in' house but got a new phone number we got a significant number of calls from collection agencies.

Really annoying.

Next time when you get a collection guy on the line, part way through the conversation fire a cap pistol near the phone and scream,"MY GOD HE'S BEEN SHOT,CALL 911!(then hang up)
Deny ever receiving a call from this guy to police and the credit collection caller will be charge for false alarm call.

This stunt(one of many I have) is one of my all time favorites for sales calls.

This is the absolute best prank pulled on a telemarketer that I've ever heard: http://www.digyourowngrave.com/tom-m...e-scene-prank/

Don't try. That's not a commitment. Do it.
