Very interesting and sad story here about a man in Florida who was harassed by Debt Collection calls, and died. http://www.walletpop.com/blog/2009/09/17/did-collection-calls-contribute-to-floridians-death/?icid=main|htmlws-main|dl3|link3|http%3A%2F%2Fwww.walletpop.com%2Fblog%2F2009%2F09%2F17%2Fdid-collection-calls-contribute-to-floridians-death%2F
Here is the contents of one of the messages...Judge for yourself! (Take into consideration that Stanley had lost his job due to suffering a massive heart attack).
"One message even commented on the expensive helicopter ride that saved Stanley's life: "Get your act together and make the payments on your mortgage. Why don't you have that helicopter pick you up and bring that payment to the office."
