    Answered . I believe Cash Net USA has violated the Florida Consumer Collections Practices Act. You may be able to get a Consumer Law attorney to represent you I an action against them. The next time they call, take detailed notes of everything they say. Get the person's name. If all you have is an outstanding debt they cannot have you arrested. It is illegal for them to threaten to have you arrested for a debt. I am willing to discuss your case with you dennis@chenlawoffice.com

There are different types of debt, but all involve one person (the debtor) owing money to another (the creditor). Terms of repayment are governed by a contract.
