Bill Collector Saves Woman Held Hostage In Calif.
DAVID GREENE, host:
Good morning. I'm David Greene.
Thanks for collecting my debt. That's what a California woman is saying after her rescue. She was held captive by an ex-boyfriend for three days. Then, according to the Victorville Daily Press, a car dealership started sniffing around, not for mischief, for unpaid car payments. Sales clerks stopped by to collect money. The woman answered the door and made clear there was trouble, and the debt collector then called police. Who wants to pay the bills now? It's MORNING EDITION.
