Consumer Complaint: My Name is XXXX XXXX, I would like to file an Official Complaint against Debt Collection Agency : National Credit Adjusters XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX KS XXXX ( XXXX ) XXXX For the last 2 years XXXX and XXXX respectively, I have been getting repeated calls about a debt collection from the above company. Legally they are only supposed to call me once a day. They have called my personal cellphone several times a day and sometimes evenings, when I stopped picking up their calls they would then proceed and call my work number several times a day as well. They used different area codes to mask their numbers tricking me to pick up, under duress, I stopped picking up numbers I wasnt familiar with. Costing me dearly in the process as I would miss important phone calls mistaking them for debt collectors in fear of harassment by them. On one Occasion I picked up the phone due to excessive annoyance and they threatened me with legal action if I dont comply with a payment plan over the phone. I once again declined the debt as mine and hanged up the phone.
This year XXXX I sent out 2 challenging letters to them to verify the debt bearing my signature or contractual obligation to pay them since they are not the original creditor.
” The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act states that the debt collector can not collect any amount of money that is not authorized by the agreement creating the debt or permitted by law. Because there is no agreement between the collector and the alleged debtor, no collection can be sustained.
In response to the attached letters they provided itemized printout statements of the original creditor which still has no evidence of a signature or legal binding agreement between me and the debt collector to pay them hence they are now validating an inaccuracy.
Their false reporting to the Credit Bureaus has been very damaging to my loan and credit card application processes. I ask that they remove it completely from all 3 bureaus Please review all attached documents as prior evidence and understand this matter is Severe and help from your office to investigate this is much needed, looking forward to hearing from you Yours Sincerely, XXXX XXXX Debt Collections Agency Victim
