  • W. Va. Woman Fights to Collect $10 Million from Debt Collectors
    a new breed of collectors called debt buyers They purchase old debts for pennies that the original creditors have given up on and then try to collect them for a big profit Critics say debt buyers sometimes use outrageous tactics to get the money where others have failed RFA is a debt buyer Mey wrote RFA a cease and desist letter telling the company not to contact her anymore and sent it certified mail Postal records show exactly when RFA signed for it Precisely 23 minutes later Mey started getting mysterious hang up calls that showed up on her caller ID as coming from her local county government So I called the number back and it was the sheriff s department And I asked if someone there was trying to reach me And they said no nobody there was trying to reach me Mey said After two days of hang up calls from that sheriff s department number Mey picked up another one with that same caller ID The man on the line repeatedly called her a vulgar name for the female anatomy He described violent sexual acts he would like to subject her to and asked if she liked to be gang banged I was so frightened I felt violated but then I realized you know I m taping this call Mey said I pulled myself together and I thought I can get through this Just keep on talking buddy because we re gonna get plenty of your voice on tape The verbal assault went on for nearly two minutes before the man hung up Mey said she immediately called 911 to report that someone had threatened to sexually assault her She says she was terrified because she believed the call was from a local number Mey said she then bolted the door and got her husband s gun out of the dresser and hung it on the bedpost in her bedroom At the time Mey said she didn t make a connection between that call and the collectors But then she learned the call hadn t come from the local sheriff s office after all The caller ID had been manipulated to look like it did a practice called spoofing That s when she went online and discovered complaints about RFA debt collectors pretending to call from sheriff s offices including a male collector who called women vulgar names He picked the wrong person Mey said You see Diana Mey has battled big companies over intrusive phone calls before In 1999 she won a class action lawsuit against a major telemarketer whose salesmen kept calling people even when asked to stop People magazine named her one of the Most Intriguing People of the Year That s why Mey has recorded her phone calls ever since Mey says it took her a year to find attorneys who would sue on her behalf Wheeling lawyers Martin Sheehan and Patrick Cassidy took the case knowing they would probably never get paid
