my wife is receiving harassing phone calls from a collector for a payday loan. We recorded one of the calls, where they threatened her with jail time and said she would have to pay restitution. He said she had passed a bad check and that was a crime. I know very well that defaulting on a payday loan is not the same thing as passing a bad check, and we let it go. Then she got a message from a guy saying he was from the warrant processing department threatening an arrest warrant. Again we ignored it. Well today she got a call from her Dad who said they had called him about a bad check she wrote. Now it's getting annoying, and I want to report them. Does anyone know where to start if I want to report this? We live in Washington State.
I'll get the 800 # they gave me later but can you tell me where to start?

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.
