Consumer Complaint: We had a car financed through Ally Auto ( XXXX XXXX XXXX ). The vehicle was involved in a wreck that totaled the car. Our Auto Insurance paid their part, and our GAP Insurance took awhile to pay off. The GAP Insurance paid off everything except XXXX. Ally started calling us 9-10 times a day and would call us 30 seconds apart on 3 different numbers and also a separate call each day to my wifes work number. I called them and told them the harrassing calls mutiple times a day needed to stop. I told them I got a part time job to help pay this off and I would be paying it off by XX/XX/XXXX. I asked them to no longer call me on XXXX work cell or XXXX work phone. I also asked them to not call my wife at work ( which they had already been told over a year ago not to call her at work ). They have repeatedly still called my wife and work and still call me on XXXX. I am sick and tired of being harrassed by this company on phone lines I have repeatedly told them not to call on. Today I spoke to a supervisor and gave them the information again.
