Consumer Complaint: Today XX/XX/XXXX I received 3 phone calls from XXXX at One Main Financial who stated that the matter was urgent and that she needed to speak to me right away. I had called previously and called once more and finally got her on the phone. She then told me that my XX/XX/XXXX payment did not post and that it was coded that my bank account was frozen. I told her no way. I told her that I just left the bank and my account is fine. We spoke of other methods of making a payment and she agreed that my wife could call with a debit card to make the payment. She smugly told me she was just worried about my account. This suppose concern seem odd to me immediately.
I later spoke with my wife about the matter and she told me she was in our bank account and that payment did go through with no problems. I also recalled being online earlier and seeing that the payment showed posted for XX/XX/XXXX. On that subject, I had went into the local office, on XX/XX/XXXX and changed my banking information and XXXX processed the payment electronically. Nevertheless, I called XXXX back and told her the payment with through just fine and that it showed online and that I even spoke with One Main customer service department who confirmed the payment. She ask me to screenshot her the XXXX XXXX XXXX payment. I told her I was n’t sure I should do anything like that. She said she would have to contact her Manager because she shows a code 16 and the payment is not showing that she sees. I then called customer service back and spoke with XXXX XXXX and he told me we actually made two payments of {$100.00} for XX/XX/XXXX that went through fine from he sees. I then requested to speak with a supervisor. I also explained to XXXX XXXX problems my wife and I have had in the past with this office. He apologized for our troubles. Somehow I got disconnected when XXXX XXXX transferred. I called back and spoke to XXXX who would not give me XXXX XXXX but said she could transfer me and transferred to a voicemail box with no greeting and I left a message assuming I had the supervisor. She said, as did XXXX XXXX the supervisor ‘s name is XXXX XXXX. My wife called and as asked by XXXX ( at local office ) but was given her voicemail box and found that telling. Neither my wife or I have received a call back from the local office. It appears very obvious to us that I/we were being harassed deliberately by this office, as my loan is close to being paid off. As of this writing I have no heard back from the supervisor I requested a call back from. Having worked in as a customer service rep, I can say that I believe the above employees deadpanned my complaint to the company.
