Consumer Complaint: Have left messages indicating they needed a call regarding pending legal action. Stated they were with XXXX at XXXX with names of XXXX or XXXX. Left similar messages with family members not associated with this loan disclosing the debt in violation of third party disclosure laws. When contacting them, they stated were suing me on behalf of ACE Cash Express and have already started the process. They are in CA while I am in AZ so they do not have jurisdiction to do so. Refused to discuss resolution if not paid in full, and that would just note as refusal to pay and continue lawsuit. Have called numerous times after this, and have never sent me a letter indicating they were rightfully collecting or giving me the opportunity to validate the debt.
Company: ACE CASH EXPRESS, INC.
State/Zip: AZ 85274
