Unfortuantely, I was contacted by telephone about a week ago, 5/2006. I owed money on a credit card to the tune of $5200. These "people", Carl Turner and Mark Adams III (supposedly the Supervisor) threatened me and my co-workers at work...extremely nasty individuals to people at my workplace...insisted they were doing me "favor" by lowering the amount by 30%--that's an allowable by law as far as a settlement $$$$. I repeatedly told these people to stop calling me at work, they promised over and over they would not call there anymore, but, (threateningly), "When I call you, you better return my call or else I have no choice but to call your work number!" I explained I couldn't give my banking information over the phone, Mark Adams kept pressing me for this information (I never gave it) He threatened to go to my payroll to start proceedings, I hung up and called my payroll immediately to alert them, they told me they have to have a court order, I have to be notified by the courts, yada, yada, yada. At one point, I said, I was going to contact my lawyer...Mark Adams flew into a murderous rage and started spouting all kinds of threats seeking to intimidate me further until I hung up on him. Bottomline, I did not give my banking information, I did, however, pay the lesser amount in a money order. I'm sick and tired of the Bullying Tactics these jerks use to harass people...if I am further pressed for more $$$, "I" will take them to court and sue them!

Thank You! I Did Just As You Suggested!

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

I did just as you suggested. Mark Adams III had the nerve to call me again on 5/16/06, two times. He said the wording on my bank money order wasn't the way he wanted it...it should read "Settlement", I said it's semantics and told him to cash it. He further started to spout out legalities, etc. I hung up. He called the second time, I recognized the phone number, and answered the phone with, "If you call again, I'm calling the police!" It must've worked, because, he hasn't called back. All I can say is thank you for your suggestion, I did exactly what you suggested!

#3 Consumer Suggestion

BEE...Calm Down!! ...Just do this.

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

BEE,

Go to FTC.gov and read and print out the FDCPA. Read it. learn it.

They have violated at least 3 provisions of the FDCPA which are worth up to $1000 each plus costs.

DO NOT speak with them on the phone. Change your phone number if needed. Get an unlisted #.

Go to BudHibbs.com and read all about these lowlife under the Agencies to avoid section. Then read up on, and print out the sample CEASE COMMUNICATION request.

Send this by cerified mail, return reciept requested. Be sure to put the cerified# on the letter itself and keep a copy for your records.

Specify in the letter that they may not in any way contact you at work.

These are your rights under FEDERAL LAW. USE THEM.

Now file a complaint for each violation separately on FTC.gov, as it is the number of complaints that causes enforcement action and fines.

Good luck!
