Consumer Complaint: This company is claiming to be a third party debt collection agency for a debt that I owed to a different company for an Installment loan. I have hired a law firm to settle the debt with the original creditor. I have received many phone calls from a woman claiming that she can settle my debt for a fraction of the original amount. I have told her multiple times that I am handling this through a law firm and that I do not wish to receive calls from her any more. I have researched the company she claims to represent and have found many scam reports associated with her calls. She has also called my parents home number and my brother ‘s cell phone in attempts to get in contact with me after I have ignored the phone calls.
