Comment It's just a creditor's tactic (Score 1) 869

Although the RIAA has no reason to phone me, I got the same tactic when I was avoiding the debt collectors for about the same amount in credit card debt. I believe the bank was Capitol One, actually, whose creditor scolded me like a soot-nosed child for letting my debts accumulate like that. When I told him that I was (at the time) unemployed because I was a dedicated, full-time student at a top college, he snarkily responded: "well that tells us a lot about your priorities!" and continued to berate me for borrowing money that I refused to pay back because of my selfish, wanton thirst for higher education!

I think it's in a training manual they have to memorize...
