I got a call one day from a "Danielle" who works for Giove. This lady pressured me and threatened me about a debt they were collecting that was nearly 20 years old! I tried to put her off until i could check her out but she gave this long speach about how they cannot call a second time to set up arrangements, etc., she wanted over $500. (one of three monthly payments! - i'm disabled and only receive $700. per month).
After she intimidated me (telling me since i had no assets they'd freeze my checking account) into giving her my account info and setting up (post dated check) payments. i immediately checked them out online (at Mr. Hibbs site), stopped payment on the checks and sent them a "cease communications" letter; every once in a while they will call me, but mostly it seems to be to bug me over the $20.00 charge they got for the check they claimed bounced (the one i stopped payment on) I always tell them i sent them a letter not to call me and then hang up. I have told them too, that I will contact my attorney (who is legit).
To make a long long complaint shorter, don't let these people scare you (they are very good! i worked for a lawyer for 15 years and knew they had to sue me to get to my bank account and they still scared the crap out of me!) Please, do yourself a favor, check out Mr. Hibbs - he has a long list of collection companies you should not deal with. He's a good man!
