Collecting from the Collectors

Diana Mey, a woman from Wheeling, West Virginia, has recently won the largest judgment against an abusive debt collection company in history – over $10 million. The company, Reliant Financial Associates, started hounding Mey for payment on debts she did not owe.

After making several empty threats to seize her home, Ms. Mey sent a cease and desist letter, demanding the company stop contacting her. Shortly after, she starting receiving multiple hang up calls, which turned in to calls depicting graphic sexual threats against her. Luckily, she was recording all of the calls and took the company to court.

ABC News Nightline aired Ms. Mey’s story on April 25, 2012.
