Issue: Threatened to contact someone or share information improperly

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: Evergreen Financial Services has had two different collection accounts with me. I paid one off in late XX/XX/XXXX/early XX/XX/XXXX, during which time I made clear they were not to contact me at work in regards to the second account I had with them. They had my cell phone and I let them know that was the best way to reach me. They’ve reached out via my cell on 2-3 separate occasions regarding the account I have with them since XX/XX/XXXX. On XX/XX/XXXX, one of my supervisors at work approached me to let me know Evergreen had called them looking for me. Upon taking the phone call, the agent, XXXX XXXX, claimed that ” this was the number we had for you ” and that they were calling my employer. I let them know I had never given them permission, that this was a violation of regulations, and that they definitely had my cell phone since they had tried to call me a month earlier. I had also never disclosed this number to them, meaning they had utilized some other resource to find my work number. I informed them they needed to delete that number immediately and I would be filing a complaint.
