Debt collection agency forced to pay $1.5 million punitive damages for racist vulgar phone calls.


“Hey nigga– ‘Pay us or else…”

Here’s a story that’s making us wonder where they found the little cherubs they used to make this inciting phone calls to debtors in arrears. It seems some people are just not very good at separating their personal feelings and maintaining professional decorum. The awful story as it first appeared in WFAA.com

DALLAS — The harassing and threatening voicemail messages left on Allen Jones’ mobile phone are nothing short of vulgar.

“This shouldn’t be tolerated,” he said. “Nobody should have to experience what I had to experience.”

Debt collectors from Advanced Call Center Technologies, LLC left eight messages for Jones in August 2007 trying to collect what it said he owed on a credit card.

Dallas? Should that surprise us, or are we playing into stereo types of Southern folk ‘hospitality’ towards those who are colored and minorities? And what of the messages of the messages themselves?

“This is your mother******* wake-up call you little lazy a** b****,” a collector said on one. “Get your mother******* n****r ass up and go pick some mother******* cotton fields.”

Jones is African-American.

Which begs the question if Mr Jones wasn’t African American would he still have received the same type of profane phone calls or would the expletives would of been switched from nigga to fag or some other cozy word people of narrow mind persuasion are capable of using when their minds are being tested by the Bayou sun?

In the event you’re wondering for argument’s sake how much Mr Jones owed – it was less than $200…
