Consumer Complaint: This company who named themselves as XXXX XXXX by phone, but recovery solutions group via email. Started leaving voicemails that should ‘ve been private on my cell phone and the cellphone of someone I ‘m close to. Below is the numbers called and a summary of what the agent said. I still have all recordings if needed.
On XXXX at XXXX and at XXXX stating that I was being contacted from the Clients process division for an order on 2 pending matters. If I wanted to voluntarily resolve the issue to contact their offices. The messages were left on my cellphone and my friends cellphone.
This company who never left their name again left a voicemail on XXXX, XXXX saying I was going to be served paperwork at my place of residence or employment for failure to respond. Those messages were left on a phone number which is not my number.
This company left 2 voicemails on XXXX at XXXX XXXX and XXXX XXXX on my cellphone and my friends phone numbers stating your office need to verify my address to handle this matter outside of my county.
The agent went on to say she could be contacting my Human Resources department, but the client was will to resolve the matter if I called in today.
This prompted me to call into their office while recovering from a XXXX that I had not even a week prior. Only to encounter the rudest person I ‘ve ever spoken to. I told their representative that I had n’t gotten any correspondence from their company and asked for an address. The representative refused to give me the address and threatened me with garnishment if I did n’t comply and hung up on me when I refused. I called back and talked to XXXX who said she was a manager and she was unprofessional to say the least. She also refused to give me an address and threatened me with garnishment and hung up on me.
I called back and asked for an address to send a letter requesting this company not call me any more the representatives refused to give it to me and repeatedly hung up on me. I eventually had them email me a settlement offer. Which I replied to asking them not to call me. The letter was sent once I provided them banking information.
I did n’t feel good about the whole thing so I put a stopped payment on the check. This company then calls both my cell and my friends and and left a message saying that a check bounced in their office and I needdd to contact them. Both messages were left on XXXX XXXX, XXXX.
