Being hounded by a debt collector? Learn your rights. You can read about them here, at the Federal Trade Commission, or get in touch with these people, the National Consumer Law Center. Have a question you want to ask ACA International? You can find them here. Pete Barry, for his part, can be located here.

In case you missed it, you can find our story about Pete Barry and the debt collection industry here, as well as a slideshow chronicling his method of going after debt collectors here.

Lastly, be sure to click through past the jump for a couple of amazing vintage debt collection postcards, an early example of debt collectors using shame as a tactic to collect payment.
