Sub: Pinnacle collections - is this a collection agency?
Tue, 02/10/2012 16:12

I need to check on this company. I have been hospitalized for a smashed tibia and fibula. Things have been crazy and one of my bills made it to this collection agency. I told them I could start paying them in three weeks. Then I had a woman call me and tell me I didn't take make this agreement. I then thought it was a different company and new I couldn't make another payment of the same size and told her I could pay a smaller amount. Then she told me I had already made an agreement of the original amount. I then realized she was lying to me. They also want the routing number for my checking account with my agreement so they can put it through on that date. Well I don't trust them. Should I??

Sub: #2 Do not speak to debt collectors at Pinnacle except to tell them Sat, 03/20/2010 - 12:27



Do not speak to debt collectors at Pinnacle except to tell them harrassment tactics are illegal. They will take an acoount on which the nearest relative has been listed when it was opened, and harrass them. Complain to their corporate headquarters 7825 Washington ave south, Minneapolis MN 55439 or email them [EMAIL="cs@pfgservices.com"]cs@pfgservices.com[/EMAIL]. Complain to the State Attorney at the Capitol in Minneapolis. . They need to be stopped In our instance, we got a T-mobile phone which did not work in our area, and account was cancelled almost immediately. The T mobile agent was at a Radio Shack in Augusta, Maine, who insisted on having a relative's cell phone no. This relative is now being charged for multiple incoming calls. Complain also to the company which without permission gave out relatives' private non listed phone number.. Threaten to sue them if they won't stop. Get an attorney to start a class action suit. You do not have to pay Pinnacle Financial Group or give them your bank information. They are not authorized to cancel a previous contract. You must deal with the party with whom you originally contracted the service or goods.

This morons(Pinnacle) sucks! I faxed proof of payment like 3 times and still bugging the crap out of me. I spoke to a supervisor and literally chewed him out. We will see what happens, they said they are sending my file out and close it out.

Now do you really think that if we didn't poke and pry you would really come out and answer the phone and resolve your debt. Hummmmm, that's probably why you owe the bill now right??? Hiding and not wanting to resolve....

I said that and she asked for information to confirm, I volunteered NOTHING. nor will I. i said, if you think she owes you, send it in writing. she said they already did, and that made it clear she was a liar and obviously has the wrong party. she made threats, when I saaid I will be filing a casse for harassment. she said she will keep calling, and ruin my wifes credit. do it, I saaid, and stop calling. we don't owe anybody anything late, and I am well aware of that, but they wont stop calling. verizon has *57 and you dial it after they call you and the call is traced. some states require you do this twice. then get a police report, and verizon will, with the police take matters in their own hands. I can asssure you, that I don't believe any company we deal with amex, audi, etc would use a company like this. there are levels before a collection agent is hired because that means the company must give them a portion of the debt, and if we really owed anything, we'd know it before collections, and gain, this sounds like a shady black listed company. there are probably some good ones that reputable companies use. I doubt it would be them, even so the nature of the biz is ugly. record them if it's legal in your statee, and tell them they're beeing recorded, I'm sure they'll talk differently. 8)

So this Pinnacle Financial Group Incorporated decides to send me a statement as of LAST Thursday stating that I owe over $2000.00 from withdrawing from Kaplan University in the middle of a semester. They said that I borrowed money directly from the school itself which was a total lie. I only applied through DIRECT LOANS for school. I contacted them immediately to find out what the issue was, and this girl or whatever was the rudest, nastiest, b*tch I've EVER talked to in my life!!! When I politely let her know that I didn't have the money right now to start a payment arrangement, she went off on a tangent on how it's a debt that needs to be paid immediately, or they could take further actions. When I asked to speak to a different representative, she hung up on me.

I called back to speak to someone else and instead spoke to a gentleman who was very polite. He said the debt was already on my credit report, and that when I got the money to call back to set up a payment arrangement. They claim they only do automatic withdrawls and cannot accept money order payments. I've received 2 more phone calls so far from this company and the last 2 times it was the original lady I spoke to who was ever so freakin rude.

DO NOT LET THEM TRY THEIR SCARE TACTIC BULLSH*T ON YOU! I have already contacted Collection Stopper and they've already given me a letter to send to the company to make them provide proper documentation on what I "supposedly" owe and to keep them from calling and harrassing me. I mean seriously, if you don't have the money to pay someone, all you can do is try your best to make the payments. I WILL not be giving into them...PERIOD!!!!
