Consumers report being threatened with arrest
The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) has received reports of fraudulent and aggressive collection calls targeting area consumers. In some cases, consumers have been threatened with arrest if they don’t pay off alleged debts immediately.
“People need to be aware that these calls are occurring and they need to know what to do if they receive a call like this,” said Dana Badgerow, President and CEO of the BBB of Minnesota and North Dakota. “The threat of arrest is a dastardly tactic, and it’s important to know what your rights are.”
