Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I started receiving numerous robocalls from Southwest Credit Systems several times a day from different numbers, all tracing back to them, about a bill they are trying to collect on. One day I answered and told them to cease and desist after they tried to get me to verify an account. I told them to send me any communication they need to in the mail. They proceeded to report the account on all 3 of my credit bureau reports. I do not owe this compan y ( Southwest Credit Systems ). I have not signed anything with them. I do not have a contract with THEM. They called multiple times before the cease and desist request, in an attempt to abuse and harass. The called from XXXX twice in a row on X/XX/17 , from XXXX twice in a row on X/XX/17 . XXXX 2 times in a row at XXXX and 2 times in a row at XXXX and XXXX on X/XX/17 . From XXXX on XXXX and XXXX . They called 6 times from XXXX on XXXX . XXXX , XXXX , XXXX , XXXX , XXXX , XXXX and 6 times from same number on XXXX . XXXX , XXXX , XXXX , XXXX , and XXXX , XXXX . I know this because I have screenshot all of these calls, all made during a time when I was at work and could not answer the phone. Again, I do not have a written contract with this company and they have not sent me anything showing my signature on anything I owe to THEM.
