Consumer Complaint: Contacted this agency to resolve a debt that i had with best buy, I had called in to get an acct number and an address to where to send the payment, she wanted to know my whole history as to why i did not pay, when i will pay? I told her i just needed the acct number and address to send payments to for now, and that the reason i called. She just continued to ask, how much are you going to send and why were you not able to pay, and I kept telling here, i only need the address and acct number, she finally got to giving me that info but rudely just blurted the acct number and address so fast, assuming I am a speed writer, to which i told her that i wanted to speak to her manager .XXXX the manger who i should say was trying to be professional but was on some power trip trying to prove him self right by saying his rep was ok in how her dimenour was in bluurting out the acct and address, further telling me that his agent assumed that i was a speed writer. These agency ‘s really need to be held to a high standard, in life tings happen, people lose jobs etc and agency ‘s like this really look down on people, is my perspective. XXXX did say he was going to get with their compliance team within the organization but we all know where that is going ..
