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??

And mister pay your bills, this is an insurance thing, they need to get the money from the insurance company that was supposed to cover this.

if you are past the statue-of-limitation you CANNOT BE MADE TO PAY THE DEBT!
however, pinnacle loves to acquire any 'old'-debt, especially those which are known by ALL insiders to be WELL PAST such legal limitations and chases and harasses their victims into making a payment. once you pay... the courts will see this as reaffirming the debt! DON'T PAY THE PORKers!

Okay, if he dodges you at the address above, you can always try to contact him at one of his other hangouts: the American Cancer Society (as chairman of the fundraising and sponsorship committee), the YMCA (member of the Executive Board of Directors of the YMCA of Orange County), or as a representative of "Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars"(see wilsoncenter). However, do try to be discrete... I doubt any of the above would be happy about the day-to-day harassing collection practices of Mr. Garcia's Pinnacle agency. Also, if by chance you reach a female sounding voice when calling Mr. Garcia on the phone at home in Orange County, CA, it will probably be his wife Barbara L. Garcia and is not the Donald, himself.

I know I owe money to TMobile...I couldn't pay the bill because the money had to go to the mortgage to help my grandparents so that we have a roof over our head.
I am currently out of work after being laid off from my job and waiting for unemployment to go through which still won't be for another 2 weeks til I know more...I had told one girl this and she very rudely told me "Well you were working for the past 2 months so why couldn't you pay then?" Unfortunately I live with my grandparents and had to put the money to something more important than a cell phone.
Today a lady called and bitched me out saying that they don't care if I am unemployed that they will still call me everyday til they get paid and it will still be going through the collection process. I told her snappy that they keep calling me and they will still get the same answer.
I've dealt with collections before and got them paid off. But even Asset Acceptance was never this abusive.
I've read the rest of this thread and I will send them a certified letter to ceased calling my home (to let them call my cell for all I care) but what else can I do to get them off my back until I am working again?
