Had one this morning, not sure if a scammer or just clueless. He said he was in the office to reinstate his driver's license. I pulled up his record: No can do. He has about 20 unpaid tickets which need to be taken care of. He also needs to pay for the uninsured accident he was held liable for, and also various reinstatement fees, plus (my lord, the record went on for pages) he also needs to meet with a driving examiner to determine if he is even competent to be behind the wheel of a car.
Not to worry! He declared bankruptcy, and all his fines and penalties are now waived. He even tried to get someone on the phone who also had gone through bankruptcy to explain it to me.
Sir, that's not the issue. Some things may be discharged through bankruptcy, but we need proof that a judge has granted it, and talking to your friend who also is bankrupt is not proof that you are. What I was saying seemed to truly puzzle him which is why I wondered if he was clueless. Discharging debts is serious, and no one is going to just take your word for it.
