Consumer Complaint: XX/XX/2018 at XXXX am XXXX. I received a call from XXXX XXXX that stated he was calling from the pre legal department of XXXX XXXX. XXXX XXXX left me a voice mail requesting to speak with me by first and last name about my file with the company and provided a file number XXXX at phone number XXXX ext. XXXX. I returned the call and XXXX XXXX answered and I identified myself by first and last name and stated that I was returning the call for the message left on my voicemail. At that moment the phone disconnected. I called back and identified myself again by first and last name, stated that the line was disconnected, and stated that I was calling to inquire about the nature of my business with their company. XXXX XXXX was rude and abrasive stated to me that he was going to drop leading proceedings against me and that he has been doing what he has been doing for 31 years. I provided XXXX XXXX the file number and he then stated the name of the party he was trying to reach. I told XXXX XXXX that I am not the person he is trying to reach. XXXX XXXX began talking over me the remainder of call including giving out another person ‘s social security number. I informed XXXX XXXX that he gave me someone else ‘s social security number and XXXX XXXX disconnected the call. I called XXXX XXXX again and as soon as he answered I informed him this was not the person he was trying to reach he began talking over me again.
