Has anyone ever dealt with a collection company called Glass Mountain Capital? They called me today, left me a message on a phone number that was unauthorized to call (my husband's business line). I called them back and spoke with a very nice guy by the name of Geno. He explained what the situation was and told me that I may qualify for a "hardship" program. He told me that he had to talk with his supervisor to get authorization for me to pay $50 a month to pay off $1,000. His so called "supervisor" gets on the phone by the name of Cynthia and starts chewing me out. She told me that I broke a promise and wanted me to pay her with the credit card having a $13K limit that is listed on my credit report. I told her that was my husband's card and that I did not use it. She told me that being it's on my report that I can use it. Then she started asking me personal questions like how long my husband and I have been married and if he knows I have credit cards. I told her that was none of her business. Then she TOLD me that she wanted to talk to my husband to get his credit card info to pay this $1000. She also told me that he WILL find out that I I got credit cards without him knowing. She was going to call him and tell him. Please tell me what she said to me was illegal and that she was trying to scar me? I offered a payment of $50 a month and she would not accept it. Then she hung up on me, had the nerve to call me back on my husband's line again and didn't say anything and hung up again. Is there anything I can do to stop her from her threats?
