Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I received a phone call that I was unable to answer on my cell phone no voicemail was left. Then I received a phone call on my work line and a message was left regarding a ” personal business matter ” and left a reference number XXXX. I called XXXX XXXX back at XXXX ext XXXX. I called her and let her know on the recorded line that I was not giving her permission to contact me at work as I do not conduct personal business while at work which is why I could n’t answer my personal phone when she tried to call. I also asked her to provide proof of the debt as I do n’t believe I owe anything and if there is something it has to be over 6 years which in my state would be a time barred debt. I ca n’t have this company calling me at work and I did n’t feel comfortable providing my personal information ( address and social security number – even the last XXXX ) if I do not owe a debt. These people should not be able to contact people ‘s place of employment either. She told me a letter had already been sent and she would let her ” client ” know that I said to mail me something. If she is attempting to collect the debt would n’t the Client be Nations Recovery?
