Consumer Complaint: They call me at least 5x a day from a number you can not call back. They do not leave a message then call my job. I tell them I will call them back and they call my cell at least 3 more times.
I call them back and tell them I have do not have the money to pay the amount they are asking for and am offering them an amount that I can send them and they say it is not good enough.
They begin again. They told me they will call my cell phone and job daily until I pay them.
I told them I am trying to file bankruptcy and they said until I do they will continue to call my job and cell phone daily until my bankruptcy is in court.
They are very RUDE when they call and say I need to pay it all or nothing at all.
