Product: Medical debt
Issue: Communication tactics
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: Creditors Collection Service has been repeatedly calling and leaving recorded messages concerning multiple medical collection accounts I have with their office. They are in violation of the act by leaving the message on a shared answering machine. As a result, the message was heard by our housekeeper, babysitter and children. This is in violation of the FDCPA. Should I decide to pursue charges, they can be fined up to 1,000 per call that we have saved.
As a result, I want CCS to stop calling and for those debts to be paid by their agency and the accounts marked as paid. If not I will pursue legal action to make sure they are fined for the 20+ messages I have saved.
