Consumer Complaint: At XX/XX/XXXX I received a phone call from XXXX XXXX ‘ from Westhill Exchange LLC in Colorado . He stated that I owed XXXX XXXX XXXX a debt from XX/XX/XXXX and that if I did n’t pay he would be taking me to court and I could go to jail. He verified my old address and some other personal information but stated that he could n’t send me a bill in the mail to verify this account. I told them that I do n’t have that kind of money laying around and I need to have something sent to me. With having a family and with me only working, I paid them the almost {$500.00}. He was supposed to send me an email of confirmation for payment, which I never received. Nor did I ever receive anything in the mail. After returning home, I spoke with my wife about it and she started investigating. Called the bank and submitted a fraud claim against them. The bank has then determined that the claim is in my favor and it was defiantly a fraud. I am now being harassed by XXXX XXXX from Westhill Exchange LLC again via email and phone calls. He states I need to contact him ASAP before a court case is submitted to jail. Please help me with this, I am being harass by XXXX. He ca n’t verify this past debt and wo n’t stop threatening me with court.
