Consumer Complaint: So far, they keep calling me without any answer, when you call back it goes to XXXX XXXX saying i owe them money **secure** ( i have 2 credit cards and neither are in financial trouble and are well maintained and as far as im aware my idenity is still secure. ) **secure** The person on the phone then says they need my address, im not giving my address to them i respond, they say ok, place of employment, again not giving that out, ok then you NEED to give us your social security number or were going to call the police and bring you to court on counts of fraud. I took their bluff and said your violation a government agreement, he simply started yelling that with your outstanding debts your rights are going to be revoked if i do not get this information. I promptly hung up after the conversation and im still not arrested, so far they called me twice.
