I simply can't get enough of watching John Oliver's talks and the enlightenments his show reveals to people.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoIkPu5QIl4&feature=youtu.be thank you John Oliver for finally trying to wake people up hence send our site globally to all 12 million viewers who may have issues with these fraudulent agents purporting false fictitious debts the Constitution and the treaty stands and the Federal Trade Commission is now allowing all people to place a credit freeze on their credit accounts so these agents no longer have access to search their credit files and purport false or past debts that have been discharged hence House Joint Resolution 192 June 5 1933 when lawful money gold and silver were removed from circulation meaning all was hypothicated and all purported debt was placed on the backs of all so called misclassified blacks hence John Oliver is telling the truth here the saying goes if you want to hide something from a so called black person put it in a book because they do not read the laws are their to protect all of us however one must do their own research do not take my word for all as they are using the peoples Nom Degurre transmitting utility all capital name strawman cest tu qui vie trust account ie JOHN DOE as these names are copyright as we all have been placed under wardship status meaning dead in the eyes of the law a dead corporation there is so much more on this go to our site above for more details

If someone called my boss for a debt I didn’t owe, or made threats like that to me. I’d not only find a way to get them fired, but bankrupt them with a multi-million dollar lawsuit. If they want to collect their debt they can talk to me, and they can do it nicely.

America has the worst healthcare system. Perhaps we're no longer such a "developed" country any longer. Just today I wasted hours going to a doctor. What did I accomplish? Wasting hours of my time and whatever my copay ends up being.
lou (8 дней назад)
And since they know you have insurance and your card is required even before you see the doctor, this can affect how the doctor treats you. His client is the insurer and he will get his money regardless. I really don't know what doctors I can trust anymore to have my interests at heart.

The truly horrifying thing is how this proves that the whole monetary and financial system is a scam. Oliver wrote off this massive amount in one fell swoop and yet the world didn't end!...life went on as before (in fact it was even better for 9,000 people and their families and friends). Once currencies moved away from the Gold Standard it showed that the whole Fiat system is illusory!

I was approached two years ago by a company I didn't know, attempting to collect $370 they claimed I owed BB&T on an account that had been closed for 9 years. I responded asking them to defend their claim. A few weeks later, I received a photo copy of a 15 year old signature card. I again asked them to defend their claim and never heard from them before.

I know I’m late to this party but the craziest thing to me is how easy it is to buy peoples personal info. To get a list of social security numbers that easy just because you can’t afford a medical bill is absolutely mind blowing. So now these people not only have to worry about the vultures calling them now have to be concerned with people running up more debt in their name.

As someone who's wife is in the hospital nearly 2-3 times a month, I have to say that this was amazing. This was no little thing. This debt forgiveness action that they took probably impacted those people in such a powerful way. Some people deal with major life threatening diseases and as they are figuring it all out end up in the hospital so many times and the bills pile up. This was touching. Nice work John Oliver.

I have an ambulance bill from 2016 that was (I thought) covered by my insurance. Turns out that insurance doesn't generally cover "private" ambulance services like American Medical Response, or at least doesn't cover it unless you reach a few thousand dollars' threshold. (My bill was $1500, give or take.) The hospital had a previous address of mine on record, so I wasn't informed about the bill even existing until it had already been sent to Credence Resource Management, a collections agency. I still owe them, but I don't know how much, since their website is really old and won't tell me (I still pay $10/month so it doesn't show up as unpaid on my credit score). They used to harass me over the phone so I'm reluctant to call them and ask.

The ridiculous thing is how little of modern monetary theory is known by the general public - there is absolutely no excuse for the poverty in the country, it literally only exists for ideological reasons. The government could just choose to buy all the debt, with no negative consequence whatsoever, but overwhelming positive effects... and that would be an absurdly conservative action - they could do much more.

You guys have no idea how broken your capitalist system is... When a bank sells they debt they wright off their bad debt.. when makes their books look good and their headache no more.. but it also means they can lend with no proper method.. cos if it goes bad they can sell it and wright it off.. imagine if the bank couldn't do that how bad their books would to.. which should be the real picture.. and would reflect how there is no methodology in lending or proper invitation... If they kept the debt in their books they would have to clean up their act...

A few years ago, you could track who owns those zombie debt buyers and some of them are in Africa, which means that it's possible that American courts are paying for our own terrorism. Not joking. In 2015, I tracked a slave ring going through a collection agency. Isn't it curious how Scammers and Debt Collectors use pretty much the same tactics and words? That's not even the worst part. The government is completely ignoring it, because to the wealthy, they're just treating consumers like cattle in a feed lot sorting them from pen to pen until the end when a debt buyer can get you for not paying for the funeral and some terrorist in Yemen gets a brand new rifle courtesy of American courts. Ask the government if you don't believe me.

I found out my credit score was minus 820. The last bill collector to come up this hollow, got beaten, robbed, and gang raped by a herd of goats. If anyone gets a dollar out of me, they better have a gun, or be a good looking hooker.

The USA is giving people so much stress with how little consumer protection and safety and security is available to people. The broken education system, healthcare and election system is exacerbating the problems. The USA is going down because of those things, not because of the things the Trumpists blame.

Debt collectors do in fact help the economy and as long as there are better standards emerging, it is important they keep going. They mustn't be threatening or something like that but debt needs to be paid, there is no way around it or things collapse. Credit car firms and other creditors should be legally obliged to impose stricter limitations on debtors though. If a private household is in the red by vast sums that will impossibly come back, then something is going wrong and somebody should have figured out that this was not sustainable from the very start! Fully transparent i.e. publicly viewable bank accounts for every (including legal persons) and an end of cash in favor of digital payments would make the lives of everyone much easier because financial information would be honest, easily accessibly and hard if not impossibly to tamper with - say goodbye to manipulated ratings, surprisingly defaulting debtors etc.

Buying debt that a company got refunded by writing it off on their taxes, and then writing it off on your taxes,. seems illegal. Like very illegal. Like FBI kicking down your door illegal you damn fraudster.

The solution is obvious, there is a better way to collect money: financial advice. The collector's job would be to give advice to indebted families and negotiate a payment schedule so they can pay back their debt as soon and as easily as possible. Making a debt collector behave like maffia collector is just plain stupid and probably ineffective. Plus, cash flow would be much more even for the collector company, with the possibility of paying debt back in smaller increments.
EazyEColi (1 месяц назад)
Did not even need to watch the vid, if anyone has a background in finance or accounting, this is like basic stuff. It is called factoring. Selling debt at a discount for immediate payment, and sure payment. Time value of money concepts. There are far far far more reasons to sell debt than just what this portraying. Investments sooner than later. *If your money is not growing, you are losing money.* If you have a 401k, you have contributed to this. :)

Having a similar experience with Islamic doctors that failed to make an honest analysis. Getting charged services that was not complete. From my view it is the perfect Jihad; to get paid for hospital services with out a detailed medical document; or , a failed procedure.

If that motherfucks are rang all my neighbors to I get in the building then came to my door he get a big fucken ass weapon right there on the spot now would give a goddam a fine with the jail or not he had to spit out his teeth and suck food through a straw for mutt that for a break his jaw we bailed out the goddam banks after the last financial crisis and they're doing this ship all over again so be prepared when it happens it's can be the same dam thing we just gave the rich a huge tax break which meant nothing to the the real work and people the 90% of Americans who work didn't get nothing out of the tax break unless she called a couple $100 a year a huge tax break you can eat up that on gas hikes. And then they want to call your boss at work some States that's illegal number 2 if you have a hospital debt they cannot force you to pay that's a federal law a course I know some of you trump bastard's would love it to do away with it the course until one of you became ill then all we want the law especially just for me because I'm perfect I need it on the only person on Earth who pay their taxes people can go through tough times you never know when it can happen just like you never know when you're gonna die if we knew that we would never need life insurance but were a slave to debt because we want things today insita say for it by our greatest generation would in a course the banks can get money for less and 1% from the government so they don't need to have you a person who uses the bank to have a savings accounts of the bank would have cash to loan back in the seventies and eighties you could have a savings account in get maybe 2 to Maybe 3% which is as much as ACD you didn't have the restrictions in many people did that so when they retired they could draw upon that with a little bit of social security my mother did that but no not now we had the save the banks their their greater energy than the human beings of the United States I remember Mitt Romney says O corporations are people go to Arlington national cemetery in Washington DC or your local veterans cemetery in your town and I want everyone to look for the 1st corporation not a human being a corporation that is buried that gave us life for his country not a human being a corporation go look for it all you trump supporters are want you to do that but they won't because are cowards number 22 at a 3 of merself fricken fat they can't barely put 1 leg and from another and by the look and they are not go to live much longer to 70 anyway you their ignorance and out of shapeness. I've always paid my bills but you never know if a crisis occurs and you might need a break but that's OK we give breaks to million And billionaires you know because if you're worth a million dollars and suddenly you had to pay maybe 5000 born taxes well Though they will be having to get rid of their cars move into an apartment ride a bicycle or Use Uber. Astrup most of these people's only deity you know they're only God what they truly worship is money and then the by-product is their little pathetic power they get whether it's in their little business or political where they can tell people what to do and people believe everything that comes out of their mouth or they can grope women and get away with it the Republican party is nothing But a party of purves there is a Congressman from Florida Republican who got drunk hanging out where the pages the young teenagers who work during the summer with Congressman without asking about drunk flirting with them.
