today 1-15-9 around 9 am got a robo call to my voicemail from a lady named teresa asking me to return the call....i call in response tell the girl awnsering the phone my name and ask for teresa..she awnsers back,my name and home adress...yeah,ok what do u want..
so she goes on to tell me she is from a collection agency...and the calling in regards of a past due acct.from verizon wirelless that they had just purchased from a diffrent collection agency..and were looking to collect in the sum of 482.00 dollars from a account that was opened in december 2001 and closed in feb 2002...
I informed the young lady i never had a verizon wireless account...i use nextel for my buss.and metro pcs for my personal cellphone ....could she produce a invoice,a statement.signed agreement,anything ?
no...of course not and she didnt have that info or was it her job too produce it,the only thing she was authorized too do was take my credit card info or my bank acct,info in regards of paying the past due amount....i asked her if she was crazy? i am a electrican, if i say i came too your house 7 years ago and fixed your porch light and now that i have you on the phone you owe me 5 thousand dollars are u going to pay me ?
her response was "are you disputing the bill sir ?" of course i am....and she hangs up.....lmao......just unreal....i purchased a new home last year and have been keeping up to date on my credit report several years prior to the purchase and there never has been a claim from verizon against it...
so in my mind i know they are wrong or have the wrong person not really trippin on that....it was just a shock....what the h*ll did this lady excpect....me too be some elderly person with a bad memory and just give her my banking info over the phone with no proof of a service from a so called account from 9 years ago..is she for real...this is what she does for living...unpaid balances are wiped out after 7 years from the date opened in the real world..so what planet is she from ???
even if it did exist it is expired...run with that lady....thats what makes it even more funny.....so i call back the number 1 800 947-2987 only this time to get a guy to awnser the phone.i tell him im calling back to dispute a past due bill and need the billing info..he respond if i owe them money that i will get a bill in the mail other than that i can go to the website and download a dispute form,fill it out and mail it too him...
i ask him for a adress or corprate office adress...a buss.license number anything to prove the are a legit company all he says is the are a million dollar company known nationwide and if i want any info check the website and he hangs up....just unreal...all i can do is laugh..i thought the shady attitude was funny...but several hours later felt sad...what about that lil old lady or grandpa who these bloodsuckers call everday...how many of them do the get???
is this really goin on and no one cares..this company is bogus...the make false claims...its seems to me they prey and thrive on the elderly...who is watchin these scumbags and where do they get the phone numbers to solicit funds. Tommorrow, i am going to contact bbb anf fcc trade comish to file a claim and do some more research on these money hungry blood suckin b*st*rds..some has too stop this sh*t someone has too look out for grandma and uncle bob.
At this time in the economy we should be helping each other out make sure we all get by...not looking to get over on people by ripping them off....I hear about all kinds of money making schemes but i never really thought it would have happened to me.....CBCS are a bunch of F*CKIN IDIOTS.....The would have had a better chance of getting my money by calling me saying i won the Canada Lottery of a Million bucks and please send them money in canada to release the winnings......LMFAO......
oh and if any of the CBCS employees read this...let me save u a little grief.....if u could every produce a bill or invoice please come to my house...knock on my door....give me five bucks...i will kick you in your balls...and we can call it a day ! Hope i dont get a speeding ticket on the way to the bank getting your money....LMFAO
