Widow Shrieks Bloody Murder: Debt Collectors Murdered My Husband
The era of complete and total disregulation of the financial violence industry has created a new class of predator, the debt collector, often a third party speculator who buys blocks of debt at a discount and sends bounty hunters out to collect on it, using tactics that would make Ghenghis Khan vomit blood.
The collectors are soulless , cackling jackals who will say and do anything short of pistol whipping a debtor to get them to disgorge payment. Got more than one vowel in your name and an accent? They’ll ask if you papers are in order and if you’ve ever been kicked to death by ICE agents. Got a wife? They’ll ask if you’ve ever imagined what she would look like without arms. Got a debilitating disease? They’ll taunt, threaten and jeer at you until it fucking kills you.
Such was the case with Stanley McLeod of Tampa, FL. After a heart attack in 1997, he never worked full-time and finally in 2005 the calls from the collector, Green Tree Servicing, were approaching a dozen calls a day, sending McLeod into a quaking fear that shattered his already failing health, his widow told the Associated Press.
Finally, he keeled over dead in December, 2005 and his wife, Dianne, vowed revenge against the twisted hyenas that she believes murdered her husband. She filed suit, armed with telephone answering machine recordings of the jackals taunting her dying husband.
On one recorded message, an angry male caller says: “Stanley McLeod, you need to call Green Tree and get your act together and make a payment on your mortgage. Quit playing games.” Then, presumably referring to the emergency aircraft that flew McLeod to the hospital after his heart attack, the caller said: “Why don’t you have that helicopter pick you up and bring that payment to the office.”
This is the kind of innovation in financial services that makes America great, isn’t it, Stinquers? Really, what America needs is for debt collectors to be free to impose compound interest at any rate on a per hour basis and the subsequent wealth production would allow everyone to retire at age 25 with uncountable wealth and their own hospital to take care of them. Ha. Haha. Hahahahahahahaha.
