Consumer Complaint: I have had my mortgage loan with PennyMac since XXXX or XXXX XXXX ( after transferred from the originating loan company ) and know about calls when accounts are past due. On several occasions I requested no calls to my w ork and not to call my cell phone unless my account is over 30 days past due. I had been receiving calls on my cell phone and on approximately XXXX XXXX , XXXX , I received a call from a representative and advised that I had requested no calls on my cell phone and there are no other numbers to call me on ( including my work number ). I received an email forwarded between two departments at my job on XXXX XXXX , XXXX , stating, ” For your handling. ” The forwarded email was from a voicemail left stating this was in reference to my home loan. The attachment is only the screen shot of how the voicemail was transcribed. The voicemail is from an actual person, not a recording. The voicemail was attached in the original email. I have repeatedly told several reps on different occasions not to call me at work and I received this forwarded message and voicemail. My application with the company has my direct extension for messages such as this. I believe this violates FDCPA with third-party disclosure since the message was in reference to my home loan and not left on my direct voicemail, that identifies me by first and last name.
