Consumer Complaint: Firstly, I am certain I have no debt other than my student loans, which are currently being handled by an unrelated credit service, and that these claims must be baseless.
On XX/XX/18 Recievables Performance Management ( XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX Suite XXXX XXXX, WA XXXX ) began calling my mother ‘s phone from XXXX ( XXXX ) XXXX and asking her to confirm my identity. They refused to identify themselves or why they were calling, and did not attempt to contact me via mail or telephone before contacting her, despite the fact that they told her they already had my address and phone number ( all violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act ).
On XX/XX/18 they called me for the first time but I missed the call. I immediately called them back and after confirming my identity they claimed they were going to transfer me to a representative. After the transfer I was played a message that no representative was available. I called back a second time later and the same thing happened. I called back a third time and they rudely hung up on me. Keep in mind that THEY STILL HAVEN’T TOLD ME WHAT DEBT THEY ARE ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT ( also a violation of the FDCPA ). I called back a final time and told them that I was going to block their number and I did. I also filed a complaint on their website ( http : //www.receivablesperformance.com ) explaining everything that I have explained up to this point and requesting that they confirm the debt in writing as required by law or cease communication.
It was at this point that they began to use burner phone numbers in an attempt to circumvent our blocks and continue harassing us after I specifically requested that they either provide written verification of debt or cease communication ( their refusals to do either of these things are also FDCPA violations ). Both my mother and I have now recieved multiple calls from multiple numbers over the past 2 months, all tracing back to RPM in Washington, including : XXXX ( XXXX ) XXXX XXXX ( XXXX ) XXXX They have still to this day NEVER sent me written notification or verification despite having my address, nor have they ever told me who they claim I owe, or how much. Nothing but constant annoyances bordering on harrassment and intimidation.
I believe them to be comitting at least 6 violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act ( failure to identify themselves, failure to notify in writing, failure to give the name and address of the original creditor, failure to cease communication upon request, communicating with consumer after request for validation has been made, failure to provide verification of debt within 30 days of written request ).
