Credit card debt drove man to suicideAug 17 2006

By Ross Mccarthy, Birmingham Mail

A "HAPPY-go-lucky" man was hounded to death by credit card debt collectors after running up bills of more than £30,000.

Anthony Cross, aged 52, committed suicide because of continual harassment from companies who kept breaking repayment agreements and upping the total to be paid.


His answer machine was filled with calls from credit card companies demanding money.


After the hearing another brother, Phil Cross said: "He was keeping up with the payments agreed with the courts but the companies would change solicitors or debt collecting agencies. They would then try upping it again.

"There is no way he would have done anything like this without all the pressure that was put on him."
