NEW YORK, NY — (04-21-20) — As the U.S. Treasury Department continues sending out coronavirus stimulus direct deposits and paper checks to millions of Americans, some may never get those funds who need it most as debt collectors are cashing in.

CBS MoneyWatch reporter and video producer Irina Ivanova discuss the issue on CBSN.
