Today I received a phone call from Aegis Receivables Management Inc for one of my neighbors. The individual, aptly named James Smith, indicated that he must urgently speak with my neighbor regarding influential financial information that could pose harm to him if not spoken to today. Mr. Smith indicated that the neighbor's phone was either disconnected (which I know it not to be) or that they were unable to dial the neighbor's phone number.

I was not aware of what Aegis was until I did an internet search to find it's a hard-pressed collection agency. Mr. Smith represented this company differently when I pressed for additional information. He actually wanted me to walk my home phone over to my neighbors so he could talk with them! Of course I refused but took the message.

I told this Mr. Smith that I would do this for him this one time (not realizing the nature of the business) but to not call me again. I did ask if this was habitual practice of his company to contact neighbors to find people and he said no.

WATCH OUT! This company will be calling all of your neighbors to find you! I don't even owe this company any money and I was called for my neighbors. Everyone has financial struggles these days with the economy - what a terrible thing to make people out to be deadbeats to their neighbors! These people have to live in this area, and they should be free from having their private financial affairs shared with neighbors because of unethical companies like this.

Actually, calling a neighbor USUALLY violates the FDCPA...Here's why..

AUTHOR: Steve - (U.S.A.)

Laurie,

Under the provisions of the FDCPA, no third party debt collector can IN ANY WAY indicate to a third party that there is a debt collection matter involved.

So, just in giving that neighbor the name of the company, the neighbor now knows that his neighbor is in debt collections.

That collector is now in violation of the FDCPA and the "debtor" has the right to sue.

The ONLY way that a collector can LEGALLY call a debtors neighbor, is to just leave a first and/or last name and a phone#. Giving the name of any collection agency is a violation, and is clearly done for purposes of intimidation, also illegal.

Furthermore, that call can only be made 1 time and for the explicit purpose of determining the whereabouts of the "debtor". If the collection agency already knows the whereabouts of the debtor and even has the debtor's phone#, the call is clearly being made to intimidate and/or embarrass the debtor. Again, a clearcut violation of the FDCPA.

People need to fill the courtrooms with lawsuits against debt collectors. File a lawsuit under the FDCPA on EVERY violation by a collector.

And, keep in mind, that you can sue the individual collector as well as the agency. I always go after the individual.

AUTHOR: Charles - (U.S.A.)

Laurie likes to run her mouth and she has no idea what she Is saying. She told me to shut up for no reason out of the blue hateful for no reason. When I made a comment on a equifax complaint.

They may talk to everyone else that way on this site but I am not going to put up with It. I don't never speak hateful towards nobody unless they do It to me.

Laurie Is the main reason why I hate females.
