Consumer Complaint: I sold a car ( XXXX XXXX XXXX ) back in 2015 for parts and got signed release of reliability form signed and turned into the DMV. The car was supposedly towed last year and the towing yard handed the debt that was owed onto an agency ( Nationwide Debt Management Solutions , LLC ) and said agency has been repeatedly calling and harassing my family. I do not answer phone numbers I do not recognize, so I do n’t have a first account on the actions these people have done but they have been calling my family repeatedly after telling them to stop. They have threatened to call police, take me to court, and also threatened my parents.
