Consumer Complaint: XX/XX/18 My payment was due Saturday, XX/XX/XXXX. I was unable to make my payment that day due to out of town camping. Sunday and Monday ( XXXX XXXX Holiday ) business was closed. A close friend of mine received a phone call XX/XX/18 from XXXX XXXX/Security Finace, stating I was behind on my loan giving out my information and details about my loan, technically after being only 1 day late! This is not the first time they have given out my loan information to a person over the phone. When I called, the lady was very rude and started making threats over a payment that was 1 business day late!
