The underworld of Fake/Spammy Debt Collectors Scholarship.


June 15


The passage of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was supposed to mark the end of abusive debt collectors. Unfortunately, a seedy underbelly of harassment, robocalls, fakes, and spam messages still persists among debt collection agencies.

Sue the Collector is dedicated to stamping out these bad practices and creating a better world for us all. We help to hold debt collectors accountable through litigation. However, an equally important part of the equation is educating people about the dangers of this illicit debt collection underworld.


All entries will be evaluated by a scholarship selection committee composed of members of the Sue the Collector team. The winner will be notified of their award and will be featured on the Sue the Collector website.

In order to be considered for the $2,500 scholarship, all entrants must submit their essays via the online form by June 15, 2021. Any late submissions will be discarded.

  • Providing honest, truthful personal and contact information


To be considered for the scholarship, please fill out the form on our application page and attach your 500-1,000 word essay on or before June 15, 2021.
