Consumer Complaint: XX/XX/2018 XXXX XXXX from XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX called my work and left a message about debt on my office phone. I work for a county government agency and the phone line called on is county government property not for personal use.
The collector got through to my private work extension so I would think they misled the operator as to the nature of the call.
I share an office and the nature of the call/message was likely audible to others.
As the number is a county government line not personal I may be reprimanded.
The number is for a county government XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. Common sense and etiquette should prevail.
Company: Medical Data Systems, Inc.
Company Response to Complaint: Closed with explanation
Was Company Response Timely: Yes
