I got called into my supervisor's office today about a message left by a Lydia Burke with National Principle Group concerning a very important legal matter. It was very humiliating, especially since I had no idea what it was in regards to.
The number they left was 1-877-628-1198. I googled for more information, but nothing came up on them. So I called only to get the run around and very rude treatment. The only thing they would tell me was that it was concerning an outstanding loan with CashnetUsa and verified my address. They asked me if I had received any papers from them and I told them I had not. I asked for them to no longer call me at work, my cell or refererences and also asked for their contact information which they refused to give to me. When I asked them to longer contact me and to only contact me via mail, the guy got very rude with me and told me to quit talking as I was only getting myself into more trouble.
I then got a call from a friend telling me that she had received a similar message as my supervisor. So I called a lawyer who had been referred to who gave me some advice. He said that many of these companies are fly by night and are overseas and change their numbers so it's very difficult to file a lawsuit against them. He recommended that I contact the Texas State Attorney General and the FTC.
Not long after I spoke with my lawyer, I then received a very rude message from a local number where a woman was talking in a very loud tone about how this was legal matter and it was of an urgent nature that I contact them immediately in their legal claims department.
I then contacted Cashnet USA to find out more information about which third party collection agency they had sold my loan to and was told National Credit Adujustors. I explained to them what had happened and they warned me that it sounded like a scam to get my money and transferred me to their compliance office where I was on hold for 20 minutes and was only able to leave a message.
I then called NCA who told me the loan was sold to Chabet Portfolio Management. So I called them and was only able to leave a message.
I am so frustrated and humiliated for these people to treat me like this. I have searched all over the Internet and cannot find any information on this company, National Principle Group.
