Consumer Complaint: At XXXX on XX/XX/18 I received a call, was trying to discuss my debt and the tech did not have my information available. He then placed me on hold, approx 10 mins. Never took me off hold and never called me back. on XX/XX/18 I received a call but since I am working I am unable to pick up. They proceeded to contact my sister who has no relation with this debt, nor is on any student loan. She told them she would relay the message. Then at XXXX they contacted my place of work!!! I told XXXX she was not allowed to do this and she said she was and she could. I contacted the number back on my phone and said to take off my work number. How and why is she calling people who are not involved in this debt?! Is this legal! I feel like my rights are being abused by this company by looking up phones numbers to anyone and everyone.
