Debt Relief

Phone call:

Me: [After all the pleasantries] How can I help you?

Caller: [Nervously] I heard that your company deals with debt problems...

Me: We do. Tell me what's going on.

Caller: I have some debt that I need help with. I can't sleep at night and I have no peace because of it.

Me: Ok. How much debt do you have?

Caller: About two.

Me: Two what? $200,000?

Caller: No. $2,000.

Me: Who is the creditor? Who is the lender?

Caller: There's two people. I only know their first name.

Me: Wait, how did you...Why do you owe the money?

Caller: I borrowed it some time ago for something I had to do.

Me: And you don't know the name of the person you owe? Where are they?

Caller: Well, they live in South America. One of them, she sent people over here to to collect. They're the ones I'm scared of.

Me: And the other debt?

Caller: They were able to track me down, too. But I'm making payments to them. Otherwise, they'll go see my family.

Me: So they did not know you moved here?

Caller: No. I moved to the US to avoid them.

Me: Umm... Sir, I can't help you with that kind of debt. What are they trying to do?

Dial tone ...
