Consumer Complaint: The company Phoenix financial, first called my family. Then they called me and requested social security number by phone. I dont acknowledge this debt and if I did do not have the money to pay it. The guy said they would no longer call. Today, a lady calls from two different numbers with my area code so I would answer the number. I tell her I dont acknowledge the debt, and her response was okay we will post it on your credit ( threat ). Oh by the way, I have never received written notification of the debt.
