Wakefield and Associates
Got a call asking for someone with my husband's name (there are 7 people with the same/similar name listed in our city). My husband was not available. William asked if I was the wife and proceeded to tell me about a debt that isn't my husband's. No matter what I asked, he spoke over me. He interrupted at every turn and wouldn't consider that he had called the wrong person. He proceeded to threaten me, and when I wouldn't wilt under his intimidation, he threatened me a second time.
Strange thing - my husband came home just at the end of this call and William heard me ask if he wanted to talk to a debt collector.... William hung up as soon as he heard my husband's voice in the background. So does this company want to contact the correct people? Or would they rather intimidate and threaten the wives of people with similar names?
I could not even request a validation of the debt because William wouldn't listen to even half of my questions. Want to bet they'll send it to a different address if I'm ever able to request it?
My mother-in-law received a debt collection call the other day. I will have to find out if Wakefield and Associates are playing darts with the phone book.
