Minnesota's AG accuses Encore Capital (ECPG -2.2%), the largest publicly traded debt-buying firm by revenue, of filing "false and deceptive 'robo-signed' affidavits" to collect debts owed by Minnesota residents. The company allegedly used phony, sloppy and fraudulent documents in state courts to obtain judgments against or extract payments from citizens.
