16 Jan Collection Witches–A New Trend?
According to a recent article, if you live in Lithuania and don’t pay your bills, you may get a call from a witch.
The director of Skolu Isieskojimo Biuras, a debt collection firm, says about their witch, “Our new employee will help [people who owe money] understand the situation, reconsider what is right and wrong and act accordingly.”
And if they don’t? The article doesn’t say. But the implication is clear. What isn’t clear is how this would play in the United States in light of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, which prohibits threats that the collector doesn’t intend to follow through on.
