Caller: Commercial Credit Adjusters
If you owed money to some company and didnt pay, they buy that debt for pennies on the dollar after that company has written it off their books as losses and received a tax break of around 25%(depending on their annual profits). If that debt is over two years old, it is near impossible for anyone to win in court. If you do not plan to pay, do not you say who you are, that you had a debt or give them any information whatsoever. Tell them they can contact that debtor by mail, not to ever call your number and if they do, they will be fined. Do not confirm any information as by doing so will Re-ADMIT and refresh the debt to day one - restarting the clock.
If you have noticed that different collectors have called you for the same debt that is because that 2 year clock ran out on them so they sold it to another creditor for them to continue the only way they will ever collect... harassment.
If you plan to repay the debt, never deal with anyone but the company you have the contract with. If they say they wont deal with you and that you need to deal with the collector, you will then understand that they no longer have the right to collect from you.
Just because a creditor writes off the debt does not mean you do not have the opportunity to pay or settle the debt as they can simply adjust their accounting. By paying a collector, you are only paying for whatever they paid for the debt... pennies on the dollar... and the rest is pure profit. None of it goes back to the creditor.
Those who pay creditors provide them the means to continue the scam.
Pay your bills and it will be far less likely you will be harassed.
If you can not pay your debt, offer to settle it for a less amount. This can also be done through debt consolidation. Depending on the situation, they would prefer to accept 50% from you as they would still be ahead rather than writing off the debt and selling it to collections. Be sure to have it in writing before paying anything.
Get your credit report to see if the debt is listed. All debts listed with Credit Bureaus can be contested and especially if they aged.
(905) 667-1404no message left Calls and asks for wife won,t say who it is. Keeps calling all the time, Jerk This number calls our house 2 - 3 times a day. Don't know the number so don't pick up.... my answering machine comes on at the 5th ring.. they usually hang up before this.
Facinating that NO ONE can do anything about this... they should put their energy into something more constructive than scamming people! Losers.
called and rudely asks secretary, is tom still the head honcho?, when asked to explain the reason for the call the d****ead sez, its really involved, will have to callback. Recieved a call from this phone # asking for me by my last name and did not recognize the number, so said I wasn't home. When I said this the caller said that he was going to miss her meaning me! I asked the man his name and he said it was Bill Walker. Totally frieked me out and made me believe that I was being stalked! I was relieved to see that a lot of other people where recieving these messages.
