Consumer Complaint: On several occasions, specifically on Saturday mornings, this company is calling me at XXXX. They will also call repeatedly after making contact with me. For example ; I will answer their call and speak with them and comply as much as possible. They will continue to call me throughout the day and advise that because I have not secured a payment arrangement they will keep calling all day. I have spoken to different managers and they will not stop calling before XXXX and tell me that my area code is on the east coast so it is XXXX when they call, but my address is and always has been in Arizona and has never changed. I am not on the east coast and I feel this is an intimidation harassment tactic. Please see proof of the phone call. This company calls from several different numbers so it is impossible to block their number and they will never leave a voicemail. Also do not accept the excuse that the phone number is not associated with their business, because I did call the number back and was connected right away and they already knew my name and account information based on the number I called them from. The number is the photos I attached absolutely belong to them!
