Looks like one collection agency overstepped its bounds to the tune of $1.5 million. The tables has turned on one collection agency and this time the debtor will be collecting from the bill collector. Allen Jones will now be able to pay off his credit cards with the money he'll be collecting from the collection agency and have some left over. I bet Allen is pinching himself to make sure he is not dreaming.
Maybe, now, collections agencies will learn to treat people with some respect and common courtesy. Collections agencies are known for their rudeness and causing people tremendous amounts of stress and some people's untimely death. They need to learn that harrassment and their downright nasty tactics will not be tolerated anymore.
Bill collectors have a habit of harrassing people with rude, abusive, and bullying telephone calls all hours of the day and night and are the most avoided people in the in the employment industry. They care less that the economy is still in the process of healing, people are out of jobs, have no money, and the job market is in the process of healing. Some of them can get downright cruel and expect folks who are going through hardships to pull money out of a hat. They actually believe that they can squeeze the blood out of a turnip.
Although, credit collection agencies are regulated by the U.S. Federal trade commission and are not suppose to harrass customers, they do it frequently and break that law daily. The law means nothing to them. A bill collector will call at all hours or the day and night, seven days a week, and more than once a day.
Nevertheless, the bill collectors went too far with Mr. Jones and Jones did something about it. The following are some of the messages left on Jones voice mail:
“This is your mother******* wake-up call you little lazy a** b****,” wfaa.com quoted a collector as saying in one message.
“Get your mother******* n****r ass up and go pick some mother******* cotton fields,” said another collector."
Mr. Jones won't be picking cotton to pay his bills. Nope, instead he'll be going to the bank to cash that fat check that the collection agency has been ordered to pay to him for their rudeness and insults and popping the cork on the Champagne bottle.

Questions From A Black Woman's Journey
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
