Consumer Complaint: I went to court on XX/XX/2018 for a debt of {$1100.00}. I pled guilty and discussed with the debt collection agencys attorney the repayment plan. The attorney stated I could make {$25.00} payments and that these could be made through my current debt management agency. I was to call the debt collection agency to set up my payment.
I called on XX/XX/18 and spoke to a XXXX. He told me that my payment would be {$220.00} a month. I relayed to him what his companys attorney told me I could make a {$25.00} payment. He put me on hold and then said he can only do {$150.00}. He also told me I could not send in a payment by check. He stated I had to give him either my routing and transit number or my debit card number.
I felt completely pressured to give him my private bank account number and feel extremely violated. I did not want to give any non public information of mine to him but Felt pressured to do so.
