    My buddy is being threatened with a collections notice from Hollywood video. He has already paid this huge late fee and is still being threatened with it. I thought i saw on the news along time ago that they can't send you to collections.

    Whats the real answer ?

    that shit happened to my brother too. but if he paid them anything they can't report him it does'nt matter if he pays them $1 a month as long as he pays.

    That's nothing. :)

    By now I currently owe about $17,000 on an NES Game Genie I rented in the late 80's/early 90's and never returned.

    I kept getting bills for it till I moved, and then it was at about $11,000... According to the manager there their software would keep spitting out a bill for me no matter what if it wasn't returned. He said they 'wouldn't dream' of going after me for it though. :)

    Game Genie was tight! I used to get the subscriptions (sp?) for new codes when they came out in that paper back little hand book that looks like an owners manual. :)
