This is a question we are often asked when Alabama consumers get sued by a debt buyer that they have never heard of. In this video we explain that it is ok for a debt buyer to buy your old debt but remember (and see our videos on this) the debt buyer must prove it owns the debt (hard for them to do) and that you owe the debt. Best wishes! John Watts
