Debt Collectors and Sports Air Horns

Debt Collectors and Sports Air Horns

By Keith Bunn Jr.

I bet you’re wondering what debt collectors and sports air horns have in common. That’s simple. You use it to get the attention of a collector or a group of collectors.
If you have a collector that is calling your home looking for someone you either don’t know or doesn't live there (like a relative of some kind) and you have repeatedly told them that they don’t live there or they have the wrong number and they are being rude to you in numerous ways, this is what you do…

Go to any sporting goods store and buy yourself a sports air horn and the next time they call you again, tell them that you either don’t know the person they are looking for or that person doesn't live there. Let them know that you will be reporting them to the Federal Trade Commission for breaking federal law according to the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Then tell them that the next time someone from their company calls, you will deafen them with a sports air horn. The collecting company should be data basing what was said in your conversation so they have been fairly warned. 

Then if they call again, don’t even talk to them, just blast them & hang up. They may call you back sometime, but I doubt it.

You have to take control of these situations other words those butt head collectors will drive you crazy. Have fun with it! Oh yeah, I would report them to the Federal Trade Commission as soon as you hang up from blasting them. Here’s how to get a hold of them…
