Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: A company called LGM contacted me on two separate occasions, once on XX/XX/XXXX and again today, XX/XX/XXXX. This agency was looking for my sister, XXXX XXXX. On XX/XX/XXXX I told the company that this was a relative ‘s phone number and i was not to be contacted. I called my sister to notify her of the call and she let me know that they had called her before they called me. So they knowingly had contact with her and her contact information, but couldn’t make progress with her so they contacted me. This agency was trying to collect a debt for a company called XXXX XXXX XXXX ( XXXX ) XXXX. I am being harassed for a debt that does not belong to me. I also live in a different state than my sister and have a phone number that was obtained years after any date that we lived in the same household. It seems that i was tracked down by personal information to get in contact with my sister when they already had her contact information.
