Snap Finance was contacting my wife back in June 2018, they were texting, we told them to stop via text and then we did not hear from them. April 2, 17th and 25th, my wife has been receiving emails from True Accord for the same Snap Finance bill. I had contacted you guys back in June 2018 about this and was wanting to know if this falls into the category of a complain.

I have been having unwanted phone call from a agency asking to to sell my diabetic test strips.i told them I don’t want to sell my test strip they have been calling me three or four time per day.

My understanding is that with the Coronavirus pandemic, collection agencies have ceased collection efforts at this time & maybe it's just in Nebraska. Anyways, I still have an agency out of Massachusetts CCS Offices, 781-824-5000 that call at least once a day.

Hi, I am receiving emails from "Elite recovery services" demanding payment regarding a debt that I Don't have from 2 cash service companies I never heard about.

I have a medical bill through Denton Regional Hospital here in TX. It is with a collection agency (MediCredit). I have reached out to MediCredit disputing the amount of the bill and asked that they not contact me again. Well, they are still calling me. Any assistance is appreciated.

I was the owner of a small business and kept it running successfully for 3+ years. However, when the commercial property I was renting for my store was purchased by a new owner, my rent was immediately increased $500+. It was all downhill from there and I was forced to apply for a business capital advance loan to keep my business afloat. Then, in August of 2020, nearly a year of this cycle of debt, the business closed. I have been unemployed since until recently and am now attending college as a first time student at age 29 to try to redo my life path after losing my business, which was devastating. I can not afford to lose my financial aid and not go to school, it is very important to me. The company my capital loan is through, but now they have now sent the account to Kearns Brinen & Monaghan. The person assigned to my case leaves me very aggressive (sometimes threatening) voicemails. He may just be trying to do his job and get this account wrapped up, but I am concerned they will take me to court, file civil action, etc. and it will make me lose my financial aid and/or worse.... I’m in way over my head and do not feel comfortable dealing with this guy, or the company he’s calling from (Kearns Brinen & Monaghan) on my own... please help!

I am currently being garnished from pioneer credit recovery also while on a payment plan

I received a garnishment writ for 9k from Liberty acquisitions. After researching, this bill is from 2007 when I graduated high school and wells fargo gave me a $300 credit card. I have never received bills or been served papers of any kind and $300 was charged off as bad debt by the bank years ago. Please help me....I have no clue how to handle this. I do know that I got a few calls years ago but they stopped after they called at 4 am and realized what time it was, I never got another call after that. Thanking you in advance. Edwin

I have a debt with la curacao. I believe $1100 at this point. I've been getting calls from the store,collection departments and now some attorneys that are saying they will take it further if they dont receive the payment in full. I'm confused because I walked in to curacao to see what my options were to pay off the debt and they told me it had gone to collection. I call collection and they told me they cant help. But why do they keep calling. The attorney guy calls and doesnt eave any information except his name and ask for me. I gave up talking to him after the first conversation we had. He asked if I planned to pay the debt I said I would talk to curacao collection department then he said they're no longer involved that hes their attorney or loan agent and all payments are made to him. So I'd like some clarity on what can be done here.

I have sent cease and desist letters to wakefield and associates throughout the year and yet they continue to call me. I have copies of the letters that were sent

I am harassed every day throughout the day by NCB. I have seriously thought about switching my number. They call both my home phone and my cell phone. I have blocked their number on my cell phone, but they still can leave a message. We tried to call the original creditor to setup payment arrangements, once I was in a position to do so. I was informed that the loan had been sold to NCB. Every time I see their number, it upsets me for the rest of the day. I never have any peace. I have never been harassed like this by anyone in my life. Several times they have called me before 9 am, and it has ended up waking me up. Please help me with this harassment, so I call finally have some much needed peace!

1(855)880-4795 requesting to pay my debt

I received a call at my job about legal action. The number they used was 855-208-9725. I answered because it is also a business line and the man apologized. Though I am in debt and in the process of catching up, I didn't believe this was a true debt collection agency because most companies identify themselves over threatening legal action and it sounded like some random guy over a collection agency that was primed to threaten whatever was necessary just to get a call. I wouldn't mind the help so I'm not getting calls like this on a regular basis. I have had problems in the past because my finances aren't mine to utilize and the companies I had cards with began to increase my payments beyond my ability to pay even when everything was paid on time.

I have received voice mails from Simon Riley he department of civil processing he does not state the company by the phone # is 866-207-7019 which I googled and came up as CSR and Associates. It states that he must retrieve a statement from me or my attorney today in reference to a pre-litigation complaint that was filed by their client in accordance with TN law I have 48 hours to respond with a fomal statement. My name is not on my voice mail but this message was left. I do not know who his client is or if I should respond. Is it legal for them to leave this message on a voice mail especially since it does not state my name.

I have a monthly payment to Aloha Pools. They said they did not receive two payments, so we stopped payment on those two, and re-issued the combined payment for $230. Now, Aloha Pools is saying they did not receive the new check/s either. What do the records sho I have grown impatient with Aloha, as they are the only people I pay monthly who seem not to receive their payments!

Just trying to verify a phone number I called. Involves a letter from Convergent Outsourcing. The bill is bogus!

Received a call on my work phone on the 14th from 844 498 6545 stating I need to call back with my attorney regarding some important information with Union County. I read some of the 800 notes and it sounds like this could be a scam call!

Hi, I’m Juah. I got a litter from you guys Regarding T-Mobile!

Hello. I believe I received a call last week from this firm for a rental debt by Vernon Jones. I’m not sure if I’m speaking to the right people however and I had a rental balance on my account/credit that was offered to be reduced and removed from the credit. I wanted to know what was the lowest amount that can be paid to close the account and take it off my credit report. Like I stated to a representative from your firm, I’m currently unemployed!

Good afternoon. I keep getting calls and they refuse to stop that I owe money on a payday loan and that if I don't pay I will be going to jail by Friday. I as well work for a law office and they are now calling here, I have finally talked to them and they are cursing at me and told me I was going to be served a 10 day notice. When I asked what collector they said I should know. They don't have that information in front of them. I have the messages saved as well. one messages said I will be in custody by the local cops which I think is so funny but now it is too much as my boyfriend is a cop!

This number called me while im in class. I am not sure whom i am speaking with may you tell me who you are. I assume you are a debt collector. My job called and said that someone called them also and asked to speak with me. If its about a bill i have been struggling for the past few months and plan to get caught up in a few weeks. They have my phone number because they called me not too long ago!

I just received a call to my Work # from Summit Financial Services. Probably associated with MobiLoans or another Indian Lender. I'm going to tell them to cease calls via the FDPCA. How often can they call relatives, etc trying to pressure me about a debt?!

My name is Kim. How do I stop calls from ADR. I don't have any large outstanding debts. I got a call saying there was a complaint against me and they were trying to serve me. Do medical bills usually get handled like this? That's the only thing big I owe!

ARS keep calling I have asked for proof of said debit they refuse to provide me with any proof of a debit. I am currently on the verge of losing my job because they will not stop calling my work. I have asked may times to stop!

Comenity Bank called my job and lying saying that's the only # they had for me when in fact I never gave them my work number. They mention they are going to send a request for my income status to my job can they do that? Texas is a non garnishing state why would my income at my job matter? Why would they request that? They call several times a day on my cell phone as well.

Comenity bank has been harassing me since the day after I missed my first payment on my Express store card. I receive about 10+calls per day from different area codes and now they have started calling on unknown numbers so I am unable to block them. My sister started sending me voicemails from them that they left her which contained my personal information (left vm stating I have a debt and they were going to take legal action.) She is not authorized to have my personal information and I am seeking damages not only for daily harassment, but violating my privacy. These people are bullies and I want them punished!

I've been getting collection calls from Citibank and I made a payment arrangement with them in Jan for 1 credit card which balance is $2800 and past due. I also keep getting calls for another Citibank card which balance is about $11,000 and past due. I haven't been able to pay b/c I'm applying for social security disability and just want the calls to stop. They want me to contact them tomorrow, 2/15/18, with a payment arrangement, but I need to talk to my boyfriend to see how much he is willing to pay. I am currently not working and have not worked since 2013. It's annoying and they keep mailing me letters. The best way to reach me now is by e-mail bc I've been diagnosed with a mass in my right lung and am getting medical attention for it. Thanks, Nancy

Getting calls all the time from collection agency

Hello, I had two Amex charge cards with avg. of $2K on each one. I do have other Amex CC and have been making payments on those. Unfortunately, I tore my Achilles on top of my father having a heart attack a year later. The bills have piled up and wanted to figure out a way to debt consolidate maybe all my cards into one payment and get it squared away. I've been getting calls by 855-344-0244 which is one of AMEX collection agencies. I don't feel comfortable making payment plans with them and being fleeced at the end with my already negative credit report. Not sure if this is something your firm does but figured I would reach out since I've been filing inquiries after research online. Thanks!

After my divorce in 2012, I lost my house. I left the country, desiring a "new start". I came back 8 months later. Almost two years later, I received correspondence from the Michigan Attorney General's office that the attorney I hired to try and save my house was being prosecuted for fraud. There was a 2nd mortgage on my house that the attorney said would "go away" IF I lost the house, which he assured me would not happen. As the case against him was closing, I got a garnishee notice from an attorney firm in Wixom, MI, on the 2nd mortgage. The AG's office intervened and I was able to pay $150/pay. This arrangement had to be renewed every 6 months. I missed the renewal, being very busy at work, and they put a hold on my bank account, taking $1098. They claimed to have tried to contact me, but I never received word. After the hold, they did start a garnishment of $477/pay. I no longer have the money to pay other bills. I am now being garnished over $954/month. With rent, car payment and insurance, and all other utilities, I do not have enough to pay for food and gas. I also have a Parent Plus loan I do not remember taking out for my daughter. My ex said that since my name is on it and not hers, she will not help with it. She took half of my pension, I feel she should take have of this debt. I did send a letter to the attorney, asking to not take more than $200/pay, which they never responded to. An attorney here in Grand Rapids says that bankruptcy is my ownly option, but I really do not want to do that. ANY help is greatly appreciated!
