Hi everyone. Does anyone know what company the number 866-304-0566 belongs to. Someone keeps calling me (has even gotten a cell phone number that I have only given to family and friends) and telling me that I owe a debt of over $16,000 and that the original creditor is treatening me with breach of contract. I explained that I don't remember having a debt in that amount and asked who the original creditor is and was told that she does not know exactly...she said that it could have been on an old mastercard account(I've never had a credit card with that high of a limit!!!) The thing that bothered me is that she wanted me to verify my social security number. I refused because I figured if she doesn't even know what account she's collecting on then she certainly isn't going to get me to verify my ss#. I'm not sure what all of this means. What can happen if I get sued for breach of contract? I live in a state where wage garnishment is illegal. Plus, I would like to find a way to have them verify the debt without having to give them my ss# but I'm not exactly sure where they are calling from. They didn't answere that question when I asked. Any thoughts or suggestions?
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
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.
