I just received a phone call from a Don Castellani. He said he was collecting a debt. I told him he had the wrong person.
He said he was collecting a debt for some bank. I don't have an account with that bank.
(He had the right first name, James, but not the last. I get several calls a month for a "James" I think his last name is Wager or Wagner. He probably had this number before I did.)
"Don" said he would record the call. I told him "no" because I still didn't know his motive. He said he had to record the phone call. Again, I told him "no."
Then he really pissed me off. He said, "I know where you live." Strangely as it may seem, he then asked if I would confirm my address. This sounds like some sort of scam. If he really knows where I live, then he should know that I am an armed security person who really doesn't like invasive entries. Not a threat, just a friendly warning that I don't want to be manhandled and injured or killed.
Does he know where I live or where the other James lives?
I tried to call the number my phone captured but it is not a working number.
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.
