Consumer Complaint: I cosigned on my daughters call loan., He loan is financed with Ally Financial. She makes her monthly payments however she uses the 15 days grace period in order to stretch her money between pay checks. I am constantly harassed by calls from Ally financial throughout the day. We have told them repeatedly to only call if she falls 30 days late. I do n’t want calls if she is in her 15 days grace period. They continue blowing up my phone day after day until the payment is made. Today XX/XX/XXXX I received 2 phone calls between XXXX XXXX and XXXX XXXX. I tried to tell the lady that called that she is using her 15 day grace perod. This woman talked over me time and time again until I got angry and told her she was making me mad as she talked over me. in the middle of me telling her to stop calling unless it was 30 days late she put me on hold Very rude and unprofessional. I can assure you my daughter will make her payments but I am tired of being harassed. They even call me on Sunday ‘s which I know is n’t against the law but again I am tired of it. I think someone needs to look into how many times their dialer is calling customers as this seems like harassment to me.
