Harassment by Cohen & Slamowitz !
(Voorheesville, NY USA)
I have an an old account from 1995 that I was behind in payments for, but I arranged for monthly payments to pay off the credit card. I did so and saved my money gram receipts.
Then in July of 2007 I get a letter from Cohen & Slamowitz stating that they are taking me to court for this credit card company for non payment! I looked for all the receipts that I could and found all but the last three. I wrote a letter & faxed that & the receipts to the Collection firm AND spoke to one of their reps telling them that this account had been paid over 10 years ago. They claimed that it had not been paid at all. Then I spoke to another rep, she told me that she would look at the information I sent and settle my account. That was on December 11,2007. Today I get a call from them verifying my address because my account is still outstanding! What the hell! Now I am told that I am going to be summoned to appear in court and that they are going to garnish my wages and put a lean on my house???? I've had no correspondence for over 2 years!
I've no correspondence from the credit card company for even more and after 10 years I didn't think that I still needed my receipts, so I don't have all my records! On top of that , the original collection company I made my payments with no longer exists! What do I do??? I feel sick over this!
