With the economic crisis, this is the time for debt collectors, the moment they have been waiting for. Many people consider debt collectors to be scum bags, but you have to hand it to this Spanish Debt Collecting firm for thinking outside the box. There is a pretty nasty rationale behind it though: they are meant to ensure people get maximum public humiliation when approached by one.

They dress their employees in flamboyant costumes to attract the most attention possible and confront debtors in public places. Well, it’s innovative.
