Plus there's the bottom feeder problem that arises.  These zombie debts tend to wind up in their hands.  The FDCPA means absolutely nothing to some of these.  They will harass, threaten, etc. even though it is illegal, they really don't care.

And lest we forget, that each time a bottom feeder acquires the debt, they report another big, fat Collection on your credit report!
