Consumer Complaint: We are currently behind in our sewer and have been working to pay off our balance. The employees that work for Modern Recovery Solutions are rude and impossible to deal with. They told us they placed a lien on my property and that is not true. I verified this information w ith our county re corder of deeds. They are also threatening to shut off the water to a house we no longer live at. The water is no longer in our name and closed. They told us that we have to apply for a loan and provide a denial letter to be eligible to make payment arrangements. We can not afford an inquiry on our credit just to prove that we can not get a loan to make payments. How is that even a legal request to make a consumer apply for a loan to be able to make payment arrangements?
