I was contacted by NAFS concerning a debt that I hadn't heard about in a year or more. They called me one day demanding payment, over $11,000, within the next 4 days. When told them that I could no-way make that payment they brought up a "settlement". In order to "settle" I had to send them a check. I do not have a checking account. One of the "8" eight different people I talked to told me to get a checking account. Then one person told me that if I settled I wouldn't need a checking account, that I could send the payoff in two payments by money order in two consecutive months. All of this only if the "owner" of my debt agreed to the settlement, and they (one of the eight people I talked to or possibly someone different) would contact me. That never happened. Instead I recieved a call from a different person at my volunteer work place. A public library. I wasn't even there, he left the message on a public telephone answering machine for all to hear about me needing to have my attorney contact him about my debt as soon as possible. A public library!! A volunteer position!!
I called NAFS back, and did not tell the woman, a different person than I had talked to before of course, my name. Once I told her about the public library phone call, she called me by my first name. I didn't tell her my name or anything about my account or who I was. Caller ID?
My complaint is too many cooks in the kitchen at NAFS, and most of them don't know who called previously, or how to even pronounce their names. This business tells me a different story everytime I talk to someone. Sometimes I have talked to the same person, and he has even told me something different than the last time I spoke to him. Makes me wonder if I am really sending my money to a legitimate business. I am opting to not send my money at this time. $11,000 is a lot of money to be scammed out of by greedy, commission hungry, story telling, so-called professionals.
