Consumer Complaint: I don’t recognize this debt. I had received multiple phone calls and letters last year from Benjamin Chaise & Associates regarding this file. I sent recommended CFPB letter to this debt collector in XXXX XXXX, California on XX/XX/XXXX asking for more information via certified USPS mail which was received XX/XX/XXXX at XXXX. Specifically requested NO more phone calls only contact via certified mail. No contact since then. Just received a call and voicemail now from a number with NO CALLER ID the person identifying themselves as XXXX XXXX from Benjamin Chaise and Associates. I have recorded it and attached below. Not very happy about this I am seriously considering retaining a lawyer for legal counsel and suing them for harassment.
