I need to check on this company. I have been hospitalized for a smashed tibia and fibula. Things have been crazy and one of my bills made it to this collection agency. I told them I could start paying them in three weeks. Then I had a woman call me and tell me I didn't take make this agreement. I then thought it was a different company and new I couldn't make another payment of the same size and told her I could pay a smaller amount. Then she told me I had already made an agreement of the original amount. I then realized she was lying to me. They also want the routing number for my checking account with my agreement so they can put it through on that date. Well I don't trust them. Should I??

To "Concerned Citizen"

Just because people get behind on their bills does NOT mean others can harass and threaten you. Sorry but that is no excuse.

I keep getting called by these people all times during the night and morning, and they just hang up as soon as I say hello.

This is over a hospital bill that I am now attempting to save up and pay for.

Good news is, these losers never stay in business for long.

Indeed. You can't try to legitimize harassment by telling people to pay their bills.

Two wrongs don't make a right. Pinnacle Financial is a shady organization that uses Mafia type "debt collection" to get their numbers.

There is nothing legit about this group.

Look how many people that has been frauded by Pinnacle Financial

You guys should be ashamed of yourselves. For not only abusing people, but robbing them as well.

No you CANNOT legally call someone at work. I've actually taken a case to court about this. And the company that kept harassing said person at work was screwed.

"or the person who wrote that a contact number for Pinnacle is 88-715-3940 you are so wrong. if you took the time to call that number it doesn't even say Pinnacle it is a different agency. "

Not true at all. I just called the number after being harassed, yelled at and hung up on. It is Pinnacle. Says so when you call.

You guys are going down.

Pinnacle is nothing more than dispicable company. They have been calling and harassing me at least 10 times a day. They'll leave voicemails calling me by my first name and then leave their's as if they were my best friend. Today, I got a calls from them. The first one was around 8:30 and the woman sounded as if she were half asleep. Then when I was at work another rep called me and she sounded as if she were some fat cow who said the fdcpa actually gives Pinnacle the right to call and harass me. I quickly dialed the FTC and filed a complaint and also filed one with the Better Business Bureau.

If you ever get a call from these people don't give them your name or any information. I don't answer the phone when I see their area code on my caller ID which is either 651 or 612. These people are nothing more than rude, obnoxious losers who use bullying tactics to try and get people to pay. They also have past complaints regarding harassment and other FDCPA violations. This company is a lawsuit waiting to happen.

You people are hilarious! Check on your credit report...either the original client or this company is on there...try and get a house or a car, you will have to pay your bills first. End of story-pay your bills.

I don't understand what kind of company pinnacle is. I don't have debt so why are they calling and harassing me? they called my previous phone number (cussed out my mother in law) They are lucky not to get sued for the harassment. I've never heard of them before. JULIE ANN was the representative from pinnacle who cussed at my mother in law: 1-877-796-2497 extension 2311. Anyone feel free to give her attitude right back at her. I don't have time to waste on her. GET A LIFE PINNACLE

This message is for the seemingly uneducated person who is obviously employed by pinnacle: You need to stop harassing people. I found out that I wasnt the person they were looking for. Pinnacle had the wrong person. So don't assume that everyone who replies on here is a low life loser. If you supposedly have a job and a life then why waste your time replying and taunting other people like a child. I will pray for you that you will someday grow up. Good luck to all. Make sure that Pinnacle has the right person. I've done my research and they are a majorly fraudulent company!
