Issue: Communication tactics
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: First of all, Portfolio Recovery calls me repeatedly from different phone numbers. I block a number, and they call from a different one. Not only that, but they called me just a minute ago on XX/XX/XXXXXX/XX/XXXX!!! I’ve had enough already. I’m tired of them using MY cell phone minutes that I have paid for. This company is already in trouble for their collection practices. I’m wondering if I can join in that lawsuit. The debt I owe to the original credit card company was bought by Portfolio Recovery which means it was paid off. I don’t feel it’s my obligation to pay a debt that they chose to buy from another company for much less than they’re trying to collect from me.
