CNNMoney Exclusive Investigation: The secret world of government debt collection

Debt collection horror stories are nothing new. But there’s a whole other side to the industry that no one’s talking about: collectors hired by government agencies to hunt down debtors. In this world, forgotten tolls can easily snowball into hundreds of dollars in debt, and an unpaid speeding ticket can land you in jail.

CNNMoney’s Blake Ellis and Melanie Hicken spent months investigating this booming business and one of its biggest players. They analyzed hundreds of consumer complaints, interviewed dozens of attorneys and other experts, and spoke directly with consumers in production of their exclusive investigation.

Ellis and Hicken's report explores the secret world of government debt collection, and the influence and power one player has. They expose the threats consumers have received, the lavish lifestyles of those who benefit from the payouts, and the horror stories that are reality.

Putin's net-worth is $200 billion says Russia's once largest foreigner investor

CNN’s FAREED ZAKARIA GPS features an interview with Bill Browder, the CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, formerly Russia's largest foreign investor, and a once supporter of President Putin. He also describes the dynamics between power and wealth in Russia, claiming that during “the first eight or 10 years of Putin's reign over Russia, it was about stealing as much money as he could. And some people, including myself, believe that he's the richest man in the world, or one of the richest men in the world, with hundreds of billions of dollars of wealth that was stolen from Russia.”

TEXT EXCERPT

On Putin’s networth: “I believe that it's $200 billion. After 14 years in power of Russia, and the amount of money that the country has made, and the amount of money that hasn't been spent on schools and roads and hospitals and so on, all that money is in property, bank - Swiss bank accounts, shares, hedge funds, managed for Putin and his cronies.”

On Putin and his cronies: “These guys killed Sergei Magnitsky, my lawyer, for money. They all got rich, they all got bank accounts and villas and cars. Why should we allow them to come to America, travel to America, keep their accounts here, spend that money?” FULL POST
