Consumer Complaint: I established a payment arrangement in XX/XX/XXXX for bi-weekly payments of XXXX. I NEVER missed a payment or was late. I received a phone call last month ( XX/XX/XXXX ) from I.C. System, Inc. ( XXXX. XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX, MN XXXX ) stating that my payment arrangement had ended and my final payment of {$27.00} was taken out on XX/XX/XXXX and I had a remaining balance of {$150.00}. Not sure who authorized the increased payment either because I did not. — – I asked the guy to be put back on the payment arrangement I had in place because my financial situation had not changed. He told me that my ONLY option was breaking it up into two equal payments ( which would be 3x my normal payment amount ). I told him that was not feasible – he then THREATENED to put this on my credit if I did not take the offer he gave me. I then informed him that it is illegal to threaten someones credit and that I could not increase my payment. I then went on their website and made a payment on XX/XX/XXXX for XXXX. Today I received a call from I.C. stating that this had now been reported on my credit ( after I was threatened ) – even though I still have not missed a payment.
