Trisa somehow found the phone numbers for my ex-husband who I divorced 11 years ago and the number for his elderly parents. His parents aways hated me. Even after telling her we had been divorced for many years, she gave my ex-husband my current address and asked him to leave me a note in my mail box with her information. Problem is when I divorced him I had a Restraining Order to keep him away from me fearing for my life. He never knew where I lived until she told him then he showed up on my door-step very angry about her calling him and his parents after all these years. He told me he and his parents knew she was calling from a collection agency. She also asked him questions about my son and if he had his work number. She already called my son on his cell phone...why does she need to harass him at his work for my debt. So now this nut case knows where I live and I will have to keep looking over my shoulder to make sure he's not trying to harm me. This is where the shame comes in, having people who are not supposed to know anything about you, that make a point to tell her they haven't seen me in many years, being forced by her to gain knowledge of my poor financial affairs, when I want these people to think you I'm doing great.
My current husband and I do not live together. We have an Order of Separate Maintenance signed by a judge saying we are each responsible for our own debts that are in our individual names. These debts are to include those obtained before and during the marriage. The one exception to this is usually federal or state taxes for joint returns. This type of Judgment is very rare. I guess Trisa is a former Judge or Lawyer in Michigan because she says this order means nothing and that even though my husband did not co-sign on the credit card and the card is in my name only he is still responsible for my credit card debt and she can continue to telephone him and give him my financial and personal information, as well as try to force him to pay the debt.
I have just today filed a complaint with the Michigan Attorney General. There are laws to protect consumers and this collection agency can't just walk all over my rights.
