Consumer Complaint: Company is calling me in an attempt to reach my brother. I do not have any debts myself that they are trying to collect.
Several weeks ago, I answered one of their calls ( after they kept trying repeatedly ), and I told them I had no information for them, and that I didn’t have a better way for them to contact my brother. I asked them to stop calling me at any of my phone numbers, as I would be of no help to them.
They have since attempted to call me on XX/XX/XXXX, XX/XX/XXXX, XX/XX/XXXX, XX/XX/XXXX, XX/XX/XXXX, and XX/XX/XXXX ( I’m guessing they will try again today, XX/XX/XXXX ). In short, they’re harassing me about a debt that I do not owe in an attempt to reach one of my relatives when they’ve already been told that I have no additional contact information for him.
