Collection Agency Calling Neighbors
by The Hunted
I have a beastly collection agency that just recently called my neighbor and asked if she knew me, and to let me know they called her, and it was urgent for me to call them back. Is this legal?
I don't even know this neighbor, and needless to say it was quite embarrassing. They have used very aggressive tactics, and violated many times phone calls prior to 8 AM on Sundays, Holidays, late night.
Since November 2008 the have called me everyday, 3 times, usually 6. We settled, and I sent them $6500.00 the first time they contacted me back in November, and was to $1500 in December. I contacted them, and explained of my hardship at the time, and I would be sending this when I could. So for $1500 they have harassed me for 6 months, and well over 500 phone calls.
Because I did not send the balance $1500 in 30 days, they claim the settlement is now void, and I owe the full $14,000 that was the original debt. The $6500 is now just considered a payment towards that amount, and the settlement is void.
Whatcha think about those apples?
