Getting sued by HSBCs collection agency





Sub: Getting sued by HSBCs collection agency
Thu, 10/03/2011 07:14

This afternoon I got a call from whatever collection agency HSBC uses saying that they are going to get in contact with their legal department to see what assets I have blah, blah, blah, and that when i do go to court i can't leave until i pay something blah, blah

I've been unemployed for a long while now because of health problems that just got resolved, and now this oh joy.

#33 Take your pay your bills crap elsewhere, trust me, if we could pay our bills we wouldnt be in the position we are in. Sometimes shit happens that prevents a person from paying creditors. So tell it to someone who cares

Sub: #3 HSBC does their own collections. They hardly ever seek legal actWed, 03/09/2011 - 18:28



HSBC does their own collections. They hardly ever seek legal action, because it is costly for a bank to do so. If you are being sued by HSBC then you will probably lose. Also, HSBC does a good job of trying to help their customers avoid legal action or charge off, especially for medical reasons. The fact they are willing to take time and money to sue you indicates you are bad money manager and it is your fault. Just pay your bills.

Sub: #4 :mad:My father was called by a collection agency, not telling thTue, 03/08/2011 - 08:04



:mad:My father was called by a collection agency, not telling them their business name and told him he owed a balance on a hsbc card that he closed and sewnt the card back with payment in full. I called in behalf of my 90 year old father. They put me on speaker phone and when I told them I would call and get the statement of a zero balance they refused to give me the fax number. They were telling me the company would swettle for less then owed and laughing in the background. Again called to get the fax the Alex Kim (the receptionist) asked me if I was OK? Are you OK?. He was so rude. I called on 2 separate phones and the 2nd call he knew the number and started right on me aqain. Pristine corporate? 1-888-350-5995.

I received abusive & harassing phone calls from this number also from a "Mr. King". Mr. King lied and threatened me & my family.
I just got off the phone with the Attorney General's Office & the Federal Trade Commission after filing complaints with both offices.

Sub: #6 Be careful, by having you make a small payment (any amount) someMon, 02/07/2011 - 12:33



Be careful, by having you make a small payment (any amount) sometimes they are just trying to re-start the clock on the statute of limitations for your particular state (the expiration date of the time that they can legallly sue you).

Sub: #9 I have a $16,000 loan with Beneficial HSBC. I stopped making thTue, 12/28/2010 - 14:37



I have a $16,000 loan with Beneficial HSBC. I stopped making the $300/mo. payments the beginning of this year cuz I couldn't afford it anymore. They called and called and I tried to make arrangements, but they pretty much rejected that. The loan was then bought by ACS. And for a couple of months, they called and called. Guess they had no luck getting anything from me cuz they sold it to PRS, which the the current collector. I sent them a certified/return receipt letter and Letter of Agreement stating I will pay $25/mo. Wanted the Letter of Agreement signed and dated and returned to me and I would start paying at the end of Dec, this month. They got my letter cuz I got the green card receipt. I got a phone call from PRS saying they have good news for me. This was 12/10/10. Didn't call back. Got another call today, 12/28/10, same guy wanting me to call. I did...and let me tell you, PRS is a joke. Such unprofessional people working there. I can't seem to trust who I'm talking to and certainly don't want to send them money and have it go into some Joe Schmoe's pocket. Know what I mean? So I talked with this collector...more argued with him, and he was telling me to shut up and stop it, stop it, you're giving me a headache. He finally relented and said I won and could send $25/mo. in money order form...cuz at first he wanted promissory notes. I said I want my Letter of Agreement back signed and dated and then we will have an agreement. Wasn't going to agree to anything over the phone. He said he would get something from PRS legal dpt...but I said I still want my letter sent back signed and dated...he finally got sick of hearing me and hung up, but not before he said, "You're welcome." I didn't ever say thank you and he was telling I should be thanking him...what an ass!!! Just pay the collection agency whatever amount you want a month for seven years and then it will just drop off your credit report. I had this happen to me 18 yrs ago...and it worked. Paid $25/mo for seven yrs to ABC in Denver, CO. Decided one month not to pay, see what happens. Didn't ever hear from them again and it wasn't on my credit report after 7yrs. And I sure wasn't going to pay money to a side business of Pete Coors' wife, from the Adolph Coors family...lol

HSBC calls me many times a day. Even on my cell phone. (don't know how they got that number, unless I wrote it down as a back up or something). To avoid bankruptcy I had contacted a debt settlement company, as I have no assests to get a debt consoladation agreement, my only income is social security now. They say that they refuse to talk to a third party. But being a CA are they not also a thrid party? I stopped answering their phone calls.
