If debt collectors could in any way collect from relatives
after a dead persons death,then you would have to include all
the debts under a rich person,and companies,durring the time of decease. Otherwise it would not be in fair trade to the rest of the public. I myself would think that was the chance these institutions
take in taking such a chance of death. I'm sure they charge enough
ahead of time to compensate for people who die in the first place.
Then,there is always insurence in some cases that pays for such things. Sounds to me just another way to rip the people off again.
