NCO - California

Originally i owed $24k now it's gone up to 50k. They harassed my friends and family, and continue to do so. Threatened to get a lawyer on me on the phone. This all started possibly back in 2004-2005 possibly earlier.

Now they are leaving messages on my answering machine that if i don't call, it's illegal. i tried to work with them once, they gathered my checking account info, only to send a blank check to a false address which came back to me. i live in california. the loan originated back in the 1990's, possibly 1994 or 1995. And I think they left me a fake certified mail form the other day.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I certainly hope you are documenting all your contacts with the collection agency. If you haven't done so, you can download our Free Debt Collection Worksheet so you can keep track of your conversations with them.

I would also encourage you to at least read the first chapter of Debt Collection Answers online for free so you have an overview of your rights.

Finally, I would encourage you to talk with your own consumer law attorney to find out whether the collection agency has broken the law in it's attempts to collect from you. Find out how to get FREE or low cost legal advice about debt collection from a consumer law attorney here. by an attorney in your area with that type of experience. There is no fee unless you win your case, so it doesn't hurt to talk with someone.

Good luck resolving this.
