The Alaska Public Interest Research Group (AKPIRG) is a non-partisan, non-profit, citizen oriented statewide organization researching, educating & advocating on behalf of the public interest. Tuesday night, they are hosting an educational event at the Bread Line’s Stone Soup Cafe about what happens when debt is sent to collections & what our rights in dealing with debt collectors.
In this FREE training, you will find resources to
– avoid scams
– talk to collectors
– navigate the legal system
AND learn about national rules allowing abusive practices, and how you can help change them.
32% of Alaskans have their debt in collections, above the national average. Debt collectors call Americans one BILLION times a year. And when someone is called, they may not know their rights or how to work with a debt collector. They may also not know how to report the abusive practices used by a debt collector.
