Yesterday,Monday,08/09/04,between 2:00-2:30 P.M. EST,I received a message from Pentagroup Financial LLC on an answering machine at a number that is NOT mine.I'm very sorry,but I CANNOT give out that number. How this company got this number I'll never know. Someone passed the message on to me,and I left a message at this company with a number to call.I received a call from a lady by the name of Jamie Smith, who mentioned something about a delinquent account. She would not give me any info,since she CLAIMED that she could not call up the account without first knowing the phone number associated with that account.However,the number just happened to be the number she called when she left her message at the number that is NOT mine.
Obviously,Jamie Smith DID know the phone number associated with the account in question. She was quite obviously trying to get me to verify a number that she had no business knowing.When I wouldn't give her that number she asked me for my SSN!! NO WAY! ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! Under NO circumstances will I EVER give out ANY personal info to ANYONE I'm unsure of. she threw a few names at me over the phone: Meridian, Chase Manhattan,and Bank Of America. I have NEVER had any dealings or accounts of any kind with these places.If you Do need to know the number she called originally in order to find out what is going on,PLEASE let me know.I'd be glad to help in any way I can.
At this point in time,I am EXTREMELY SUSPICIOUS of Pentagroup Financial LLC.I get e very strong impression thet there is something fraudulent about this company,or at least about their practices.I DO have a couple of pst due bills,which are in the process of being paid this week.This,however,obviously can have nothing to do with the call I received yesterday.
I would like very much to find out how this company got the number they originally called me at yesterday.Could someone please contact me if you have any info on what is going on, or if you know of any fraudulent practiices taking place. My number is toll-free. Thank you very much!
