My mother is very ill and I have power of attorney for her affairs. I forwarded a copy of the power of attorney to most of her known creditors. Instead of dealing with me the creditors turned the account over to a collection agency. On 7/21/03, there was a nasty threatening message on the voice mail from a Jerry Williams, his phone number and the threat, you'd better call if you know what is good for you.
I ignored the message and I decided to let him call me again and he did and left the same type of message the next day. Again, I decided to let Jerry Williams call and this time I was home and I answered the phone. Jerry Williams started yelling at me and calling me by my mother's name. I told him to stop yelling at me and that I am not my mother and who in the hell are you and who are you representing? Jerry asked who are you and I do not want to put your mother's business in the streets.
I told him that I have power of attorney and that you'd better deal with me and you'd better tone down your attitude. He started yelling and I told him that either he'd answer my questions or hang up the phone. Jerry went on to say that the apple does not fall far from the tree. I said, you have never talked to my mother and you'd better watch your mouth, because you are pushing the envelope to no return.
Jerry said that he will call anytime he wants and that he'll do anything he well please. I said we'll see. Again, I asked Jerry who was he representing, he refused and said Ford Motor Credit, which I know is a lie. I contacted Ford Motor Credit and I talked to Gail and she was not pleased that this so-called law firm would use the corporate trademark name in a illegal act. Gail said that she is reporting this to upper management and Ford Motor Company's legal department. I have already forwarded the information to Ford's Customer Service Department and the Legal Department in Dearborn, MI.
On July 24, 2003 at exactly 7:54 am, Jerry Williams started calling and hanging up. He called five times and at 7:57 am, I answered the phone on the sixth ring. I said, what is it now b***h! Jerry said, excuse me. I said that you have repeatedly violated the Federal Debt Collection Practices Act and it is not even 8:00 am.
Since then, I have received 21 phone calls from Jerry, he just calls and let it ring and hang up. sometimes, he speed dials.
