They have been calling my work, home, and cell numbers. When they call my job it is a computer giving my full name, a case number and saying "press 0 to make a statement about your case beofre it goes for final review on a legal matter" it then says if you are not me then hang up now. However at home and on my cell they just call about 3 times a day each with no message ever left and with various numbers showing up on the caller ID.
I actually was the one who answered the phone at work one day when the computer called and pressed 0 to get some information. The guy claimed they were getting ready to sue me and I needed to start opening my mail (I have not gotten anything with the company name he gave me). When I told him to stop calling my job he demanded I transfer him to my HR dept since "you obviously don't want to take care of this". This took place about 2 weeks ago. Suddenly Monday (7/23) I get a piece of form mail from them saying if I don't pay by Weds (7/25) they are going to spend the next 30 days investigating my personal assets and those findings with a prepared affidavit will be forwarded to "expedite authorization of your account to an attorney of our choice".
Anyone heard of these people? I am planning to send a validation letter.
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.
