I absolutely endorse this idea. Very early in my career, I worked for a
shop that provided network/IT services for a bottom tier debt collector,
one of the early innovators of the 'rent-a-lawyer' concept in that

their offices setting one thing or another up, and I reveled in
the schadenfreude when they started getting splashed with such 'stock'
FDCPA complaints and losing constantly.
