The ultimate in collateral

Your creditors might pursue you across the galaxy to get their money, hammering you with repeated calls and voicemails. But after you die? Aren’t you free?

Not at one funeral home in Taylorsville, in northeastern California. (And probably others elsewhere.) They’ve been keeping this man’s “remains” since last October (seven months and counting) until his kin or friends pay the bill for cremation.

Talk about the ultimate in collateral.

    Oh, don’t you bury me,
    down in that cold cold ground
    just cut me up
    and pass me all around

  2. Not in Taylorsville. Not until you pay up.

  3. Wow. That is a novel way of debt collecting for sure.
