Consumer Complaint: Was contact by an outfit called Summit Consumer Group about an XXXX credit card. I responded to them via phone to tell them not to contact me that the debt wads paid. This is an old debt and I have since obtained a premium credit card from XXXX with a large line. I would not provide any information to these people since they use deceptive methods to approached me. They said I was being served court documents and i told them to bring it on. That was over 6 months ago. They called my wife this week and tried that same approach tactic. They said left her a voicemail with the last 4 digits of her SSN and mine. I called and they said they have our credit file. They would not provide an address or a specific business name. We got into a very ugly argument with them and I have begged them to sue me so they can pay for our son ‘s college education. We have recorded all conversations with them. We have argued with a XXXX XXXX and a XXXX XXXX. This Summit Consumer outfit is very sleazy and unprofessional They catch people off guard and out of the blue.
