Can a Debt Collector Have Me Arrested?
In 19th Century England, more than half of all prisoners were there for unpaid bills. But in the United States, there’s no such thing as debtor’s prison. Not since the 1830s anyway.

Here’s how it works in this century; if you don’t pay your bills, you don’t go to prison. But you could still go to court. You can be sued for what you owe. And while you won’t be sent up the river, your credit score can sink to the bottom of the ocean.

If a debt collector threatens you with jail time, it’s a big, fat, lie. It’s also a warning sign. Don’t be bullied. Call Debt.com if debt collectors are harassing you, and we can make them stop. Because this is the 21st century and there are laws against collector harassment. We can tell you all about them, just call us.

Don’t Believe a Debt Collector’s Threats!

Debt collectors will make all kinds of threats to try and scare you into repaying. But these types of statements aren’t just untrue – they’re against the law. So, for instance, if a debt collector threatens to send you to jail, it’s not you that needs to worry about the lawman. It’s them. You can’t be sent to jail because you don’t pay a debt collection bill. And if a collector tells you that you will, it’s harassment. You may be able to sue them civil court and get damages for their lies and abuse.
