4th NW Quadrant: The Approval Matrix
From Aol News by David Lohr
ERIE, Pa. (Nov. 9) -- Authorities here are investigating a debt-collection company that allegedly used fake sheriff's deputies to deliver phony subpoenas ordering victims to appear in a bogus courtroom, where they were ordered to pay up.
"I've never seen anything like it," Erie County Chief Deputy Sheriff Jon Habursky told AOL News. "You are talking about educated people [who] allegedly concocted this mock courtroom, had a judge in a black robe [make] these judgments and forced these people to pay money that they didn't have."
Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett launched the initial investigation into the case after his office's Bureau of Consumer Protection received complaints against Unicredit America Inc.
