Message left on Answering machine at former residence
Date: Wed, 11/06/2013 18:04
Ok, I haven't shared the same phone line as my parents in 30 years. I haven't received any phone calls on MY phone, haven't received any correspondence to MY residence that I have lived in 19 years. Today, my elderly parents receive a phone message that states my name and that "this is an attempt to collect a debt" on their answering machine. Is that not illegal if they aren't talking to a PERSON? My elderly parents do not need that stress in their lives and I feel that it violates my privacy. I will definitely be calling them to hear what this is all about and possibly an attorney as well. VERY FRUSTRATED!

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
