Consumer Complaint: I have been dealing with Portfolio Recovery regarding their tactics for too long. Now they are harassing people I have n’t spoken with in a decade. I contacted Portfolio Recovery and spoke with reps on more than one occasion and they refuse to delete the false degretory remarks on my credit reports. Yet, they want me to pay. They are contacting my family, friends, employers and trying to embarrass me in an effort to pressure me to accept the unfair offer they make which does n’t include deleting their tradeline from my credit reports and removing it from it ‘s history. It should not have been on there so many times in the first place.
