Consumer Complaint: I installed a SPAM blocker due to this company. They get past the blocked number and leave a message every time. Short message, This is from a debt collector please call this number. I call the number they say I do not have an account. They say my number is not in their system and they will notify the correct department to stop the calls. I have called them at least 10 times to stop the calls. I have a recording of one of the ca lls. They identify themselves as AFNI collections, caller ID ” Debt Collector ”. I think they are selling my number because after i called them i received more calls from others. Do not answer or return their call!
