sweatbox
 n.— «What will happen when they do have to pay it back includes nonstop calls to them and their parents. Credit card collection agencies know how to harass, threaten and then sweet-talk cardholders who are late. They even have a term for people squeezed by debt: “sweatbox.”» —“House of Cards” by Danny Schechter LA City Beat (Los Angeles, California) June 25, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
