Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: My parents both passed away this year, my Dad just back in XX/XX/XXXX. Trying to do the right thing, I had XXXX XXXX close their credit card and send it to XXXX Services, so that no further interest or penalties would accrue while we waited for the estate to go through Probate Court and were able to pay the {$390.00} owed. I did not realize I was signing up to be relentlessly harassed by vultures.

I spoke with one of XXXX XXXX agents, and let them know the situation and that we would pay as soon as we could, although we are not even legally obligated to. But my Dad raised us better than that. Since that point, I’ve received four letters and two more phone calls, in the evening, inconveniently at my toddlers bedtime no less, all in less than a month. The XXXX Services agents are SO PUSHY and really insensitive to the fact that we are grieving family members with so many other other more important things we’re already dealing with in regards to the deaths of our parents. It’s disgusting what they are doing, they need to be shut down. Luckily I have a backbone and I know my legal rights in this situation, but think of how many sad, scared little old widows these vultures pretty upon. It’s beyond unacceptable.
