Consumer Complaint: Weinstein & KarXXXX are debt collectors repeatedly call my two cell phones looking for an individual named XXXX XXXX. Somehow this guy obtained my cell phone numbers and used my name and phone numbers as reference. My wife and I have repeatedly told representatives of Weinstein and Karp we have no affiliation with this individual but they continue to harass us looking for this individual. Not less than six times they have called us and each time we tell them we have no idea who this guy is, but to no avail. Today was the latest incident. I requested they remove my numbers ( again ) but they said they had no information they previously called us. They blame every call on a ” new system ”. After being hung up for requesting to speak to a manager they then refused to answer my calls. They have also repeatedly texted us in the past.This has to stop.
