How bill collectors pusue left-behind debt

The deceptive practices and intimidating tactics of debt collection companies in Florida and around the country have been criticized by state prosecutors, federal regulators and consumer advocates alike.

Watch out! Modifying your mortgage is not as easy as they say

Are you struggling because of an unexpected job loss or medical emergency? Did a natural disaster - such as a hurricane - wreak your home or business?

Florida residents may be aware that a lender may repossess a car for not making loan payments.

This is referred to as a deficiency, and the borrower is responsible for paying that.
