Consumer Complaint: I have been receiving multiple phone calls from XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX regarding a debt I owe on a credit card. On X/XX/2017 they provide personal information regarding this debt ( amount owed, attempt to collect a debt, asked the person if they could pay my debt, etc ) to a person unrelated to me that answered my phone number. They additionally are constantly calling and harrassing my place of employment and told my employer that I said that they would pay for my debt which is a lie. I have told them I am responsible for this debt. They are repeatedly harrassing them and my company has asked me several times to make them stop. I have asked XXXX XXXX XXXX multiple times for them to stop calling my employer and they still continue.
