Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: This company has called me several times a day almost every day for the past few weeks. I finally received a letter from them on XX/XX/XXXX. I responded, asking for verification of the debt. I also asked that they not contact me until they validated the debt and that once I received their response, I would need 30 days to evaluate it. I sent this letter certified mail. The tracking number says they received the letter on XX/XX/XXXX at XXXX XXXX. However, that same day I received two phone called from them, at XXXX XXXX and XXXX XXXX. At no time have they ever left a voicemail. This makes this more an attempt at harassment than an attempt to collect a debt.
