Issue: Communication tactics
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: They repeatedly call me and my husband even after they’ve been repeatedly told to stop calling me. I’ve also informed them that they aren’t legally allowed to collect the debt that they are trying to collect, since it is beyond the statute of limitation for being allowed to collect on the debt. I’ve also told them that I’m not working and don’t have any money to pay them. I want them to stop contacting us, like we have repeatedly asked them to do. They call several times a day, and I’ve repeatedly told them to stop calling us.
