03 May Violation of the Bankruptcy Discharge Injunction may have you seeing Green! Part IV
If more Debtor’s Attorneys educate their clients about violations of Bankruptcy Judge’s Discharge Orders, then, more debtors will be able to purse the creditors for their illegal and egregious behavior. Logically, the converse of this statement must also be true. If more creditors and debt collectors are being sanctioned for their illegal behavior, then these creditors and debt collectors will conform to accepted standards of collecting debt and give up their evil ways so they can avoid being sanctioned.
Let’s not be naive. Collecting debts is big business. Creditors and debt collectors are making huge amounts of money, mountains of money, collecting debts. So, why not bend the rules a little bit. Chances are they are not going to get caught, and, if they do, so what, they pay a little fine and some attorney’s fees and they go right back to collecting consumer debts. Quite frankly, I don’t know if they will ever change their evil ways.
I do know that as long as there is big money to be made collecting discharged debt, there will be men and women with MBA’s from the top schools who make lots of money figuring out new and inventive ways to collect on that debt with as little risk as possible. Each and every day we see new and ingenious ways to collect on discharged debt.
