Consumer Complaint: I was contacted by a rep claiming I owe debt to a Payday loan company. Which I do not owe and have asked repeatedly for them to send me verification of original debt, they refused and told me to pay by credit or debit card. If I refuse they will have police arrest me. A rep by the name of XXXX XXXX , XXXX , XXXX and XXXX XXXX have repeatly called my job with threats and cursing me when I refuse to give them my card info. My employer is threaten to relieve me due to constant calling from this company. I asked for address, and representative number and they refused. XXXX XXXX stated I was stupid because I would not allow him to get my financial information. The collection practices of this company are far from practices of a legit collection company. I ask that something be done to alleviate this harassment and have this scam company be held accountable. Last contact was on XXXX XXXX and I was contacted on my job 8 times with threat after threat by different reps and giving me different company names and amounts owed.
