MRS and associates have been calling me, one to two times per day with a robodialer.
The call comes in on my cell phone, rings 2 seconds, then hangs up. The few times I've answered the phone doesn't get a human or a "wait while we connect you" type response. It still hangs up immediately and every time.
My guess is that they are hoping the person on the other end will call back.
Would that be considered harassment if a company calls 1-2 times per day, every day and once per day on the weekend only to hang up every time?
I can document that the calls last only 2 seconds every time on my Google voice.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
