Consumer Complaint: Starting on XX/XX/XXXX I began receiving calls from XXXX on multiple phone numbers, both business and personal. On XX/XX/XXXX at XXXX I answered the call and was informed it was the notifcation department informing me that legal action is being taken against me and to call XXXX for more information. The caller provided a reference number XXXX. Upon calling XXXX, I was routed to XXXX XXXX who would not provide me with any information about the reasons I was being called, just informed me that I would be receiving a certified letter in the mail explaining the lawsuit, since I refused to provide any personal information such as SS # and/or date of birth over the telephone to a company who has not contacted me via USPS regarding any debts thus far. I informed XXXX XXXX that I was requesting no further contact via telephone at my place of employment, to which XXXX XXXX started to heckle me asking me if that made me feel better since it does n’t matter, they ‘re already going to sue me.
