Consumer Complaint: Received call from XXXX XXXX threatening to garnish paycheck and file complaints with licensing board against my state licenses. Amount changed 3 times during conversation from XXXX to XXXX to over XXXX. This debt is more than XXXX years old and this is the first thing I have heard from this company and they were threatening and abusive. They refused to give their names or employee ID and also refused to let me speak with a superior when she would not answer my questions.
