about this series

Installments of "Hounded'' are appearing this summer. The stories examine the aftermath of the credit boom that has left many people in financial trouble and facing a collections industry that is using aggressive new methods to obtain payments.

Previous installments were published:

June 6: Some debtors are being arrested after disregarding a court summons, and their bail is being set at the amount owed.

June 27: Judgments sometimes are awarded based on faulty information, forcing people to spend time and money to prove that they don't owe money.
