Could a collection agency charge you more money than what is stated on your credit report?

Junk debt buyers are notorious for adding on bogus interest charges and other fees. The LABBB has an informational article on "How To Deal With a Collection Agency" at:

http://www.la.bbb.org/GIReport.aspx?DocumentID=69

There's lots of good info on dealing with collection agencies at this site too: www.privacyrights.org

Be aware of your rights, which many collection agencies flagrantly violate and submit a complaint to the BBB and to the FTC if necessary. Check out the FTC site
"Collection FAQs: A Guide for Consumers" at:
