Sub: Consolidated - collection agency?
Fri, 16/08/2013 12:47

I received a message in the form of a post it on my desk from this company telling me I owed a debt for a credit card, which I do, but the guy I talked to when I called was pretty abrupt. Said they hired a locator company and they must have come to my work and left a message? I told him I haven't received any paperwork or anything and he said I wasn't going to. That Credit One sent me plenty of info and that I shouldn't have ignored it. Offered me a payment arrangement and settlement. I have read some posts on here and it looks like they are shady, but since the debt is real, what are my options? Do they have to send me a vaidation of debt letter? He said I committed a "breach in fraud" and that I am in "pre-litigation". Honestly, he scared me, so I just am curious about my rights. Help??!!

The numbers which called me today are:
855-642-4064 and 855-453-1018

Interestingly enough, the initial call to my work (keep in mind there have been no calls to me on my phone) was to return a call to Natalie Jones. When I called, I spoke with a "Chelsea Jones".... hmmmmmm. I hate them.

Sub: #6 Received phone call from "Dept of Investigations"Tue, 10/29/2013 - 08:02



I received a call from Paula Banks at the Dept of Investigations, phone number 352-553-1272, telling me that my son had gotten himself into a lot of financial trouble. She said I needed to get hold of him and tell him to call 855-638-3571 at Consolidated. She said he had a "Notice to Appear". He called and was told that he owed an old debt and they could take his credit card payment to avoid additional charges. He informed them to send him the paperwork regarding these charges. Two hours later Paula Banks calls back to see if I had gotten hold of my son, I told her no. The next day I also received a call from Paula Banks to see if I had relayed the info to my son, again I told her no, she said she would notify him at his place of employment. I believe that this is against the law. Why can't someone stop this harassment. I'm not even sure how they got my phone number I've only had this number a short time.

They called, I asked them what it was about, the guy was incredibly rude. I asked for an address to send a request for verification and I got hung up on.
