I have received calls at work to the point where the person from National Financial Systems is using fowl language with my co workers that answer the phone and won't let them talk to me because I can't receive calls at work. I almost lost my job this week because of this. I finally got ahold of this collection agency today and the man I spoke with was very rude to me which doesn't suprise me because what he has done to the people at my job. I told him I could only pay $50 a month and he said that was un acceptable and then just sat quiet on the phone. I said well how much do I owe. He said I owed $980.89 and I would have to pay the past due of $294.28 and then $125 a month at the lowest until this account is paid off. I can't afford that. I told him not to call me at work. He said what is your work number. I said I can't remember because I didn't want to give it to him again. He said he can't remove it if he doesn't know what it is. That made no sense. I gave him a number to call if he needed to and told him I would have to see what I could work out. At that point he just hung up the phone on me. I'm so stressed out about this and it is causing a lot of problems at work and in my home life. I don't know what to do and can't handle the stress this person from the collection agency is putting me through.
