Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/2018 XXXX XXXX contacted my husband about an ATV loan. In the beginning of the call the 1st representative asked personal questions but refused to tell him the nature of the call. She wanted specific detailed info about our son who cosigned the loan. After getting frustrated with the woman my husband gave the phone to me. She finally said who she was calling for an why. She said the amount due given to them from Yamaha was over {$9000.00}. I explained that that couldnt be correct because we put a significant down payment on the atv and financed around {$10000.00}. They were showing only a few payments made when in fact we have paid over {$3500.00} this year to a different collection agency. They accused me of lying because I couldnt provide the exact details over the phone. She then put her supervisor on the phone and his name was XXXX. He explained to me that this was the correct amount and nothing I said to him made him willing to open a dispute. He refused to send us any documents they have showing the balance and payments and wanted me to provide proof right then and there that we had paid more on the account. He also threatened us with legal action if we didnt pay {$5000.00} today. We arent in a position to do that and offered to pay {$200.00} over the next few months until XXXX when we could pay the loan off. He refused to entertain that notion and instructed me that I could not call the orig ial creditor for this account anymore. He was verbally abusive and threatening and tried collecting an incorrect amount under duress. We have bank statements showing what we have paid and the account should be around {$6500.00}. They have called my sons hundreds of times and threatened him to be arrested if he didnt pay and they have called my husbands phone 100s of times while he is at work. No amount of telling them to stop will work and when you do they threaten you with arrest or legal action.
