Consumer Complaint: I called the company last week after repeated phone calls at all hours of the day – many before XXXX XXXX . They told me what the debt was and I said that I had no instance of this being something I owed – it was for service I never had. They told me to submit a letter arguing the debt. Which was a week ago today on XXXX when this phone call happened. Today I got a concerned phone call from my mother saying they had called at the specific number looking for me. A few weeks ago I received a call from my uncle saying that the company was looking for me as well. I do n’t have the phone records tonight from my mother, but I can get her those as well as those of my uncle who also received harassing calls. And I will gladly publish mine – including my calls to them. And the names of all that I spoke with.
