      I beg to differ. First it is illegal for bill collectors to call on Sunday or

      before 9am or after 8pm or it is harassment. Second, get caller id and don’t

      answer the phone or have it unlisted. i really had no choice in the matter at

      the time because my ex left me penniless and sky high in debt. i would have paid

      it if possible, but i could not. unlike a lot of people i don’t own a home home,

      i live in a rv. i really don’t have anything of great monetary value that anyone

      would want because it would be more costly to the credit card company to go

      through the motions compared to what they would get out of it. also, my new

      husband has income so i don’t work outside the home and like i said before,

      there are no debtor prisions in america and after 7 years or if the debt is

      charged off and sold to another company, it is cancelled. It is not a good thing

      to do, but I have never filed bankruptcy and never been harassed long by credit

      card companies either. If

      you can just pull up stakes and go on a moment’s notice like I can it is easy

      to just not pay in an emergency, but I don’t want everyone to do it because it

      is a last resort survival measure only. I got rid of $40,000 worth of debt this

      way and sometimes the companies that bought my debt call me and I laugh and hang

      up. They can’t take what you don’t have. ok what more can they do except call

      and harass you ? nothing! unless they know where you work, then you switch jobs.

      get a cell and give the number to no one! it is possible to “disappear” without

      going anywhere, i know because i have done it even when i rented a apartment. if

      it were me, i would stop paying, not answer their calls and continue on with

      life. after awhile they do give up. bankruptcy is forever, don’t do it.
