Hello, I got a call from collection agency that said my debt for and old payday loan had been sold to them. I had lost my job, house and spouse IN 2010 AND Was unable to pay $250.00 loan back. Now they are telling me that they are going to have a warrant drawn up and I will be arrested. I just got out of school and am working trying to get back on my feet to support my kids. Can this really be done???

Report the number that called you, and any personal or company (collection agency) names they used to the attorney general"s office. What happened was unlawful. Judges don't issue arrest warrants for past due civil debts. But, they might, if you fail to appear for a show cause hearing. You need to hire an attorney to handle future communications from this collector.
