first a couple of things.

paydayloan yes is totally illegal
how much was borrowed,and how much debited in fees
what state are you in.

you see if the amount of debits meets or exceeds the principle,then you owe neither paydayloan yes or halsted a dime,and shouldn't give them anything.let me give an example.

you get a 300.00 loan
they debit twice at 90.00
you owe 120.00 that is how it works with illegal lenders.

They just called me again and i aske that they not call me at work and i gave them my cell # but he said he would not stop until I made some sort of payment arrangement.

there is nothing legit about either place.you can try old bank statements to find out how much was debited.i would tell this idiot to go scratch.he is a bottomfeeding slime who can't and won't do anything he threatens.in fact file AG and FTC complaints.your AG like mine in IL fights for their residents who are abused and threatened by garbage like this.tell this guy to do what he wants,but you are not paying without details in writing.

ftc=federal trade commission
ag=attornery general

ask for VALIDATION not VERIFICATION.the two are different.i could verify right here that you still owe paydayloan yes,but since they are illegal you don't owe the inflated amount halsted is claiming.i'm guessing it's right at 350.00 or slightly higher.make this place prove not only you owe,but the outrageous amount they claim.i would still file the complaints.they basically violated the FDCPA with there false threats.go to FTC.GOV to file the FTC complaints.your state AG'S website should have a complaint link.again ask for VALIDATION not VERIFICATION.btw no question is stupid.not at all.

this same company keeps calling my work and left a message stating they were going to start garnishment on my wages. I have never received a letter or anything period from thes people or anyone else reagrding a garnishment. They said they verified my employment already. Can they garnish my wages in Arizona without receiving any paperwork or anything on it???

no they can't garnish without a court order.they can verify anything they want.this is an illegal collector trying to illegaly collect on an illegal loan.report them to your state AG asap.
