In December 2008 I found out that Peak Credit was trying to collect a debt from me for the cell phone. I was shocked and called Alltel as soon as I found out. They told me they didn't know what the collection was for because I was in good standing with them and my account showed no money due. They told me I should call the slimey collection agency to find out what the claim was.
I was told by a rude New Yorkean that I signed a contract with Beepers & Phones stating that an early termination would result in myself paying a cancellation fee equal to the loss of their commission for the contract and the cost of the phone. I was threatened by the rude New Yorker that if I didn't pay them, they will take me to court and I will have to pay the collection amount plus any attorney fees, plus interest and that I would have to include it with my tax return for 2008 and that it would count as taxable income. I told him that I did not want that to happen. I told him to send me the signed contract and I would pay $500. Two phone calls later, they finally sent me a contract that I had never seen and it was not signed by me. My name was computer typed on to the contract.
I sent them a certified letter stating that I never signed the contract and it was never presented to me so therefore I did not agree to it's terms. I then received a letter from Steve Cerrone stating that my Photo ID was proof that I was there. I told him that my photo ID was given to the Beepers and Phone Associate for the Alltel contract.
Later I talked to the slimey New Yorker again and he told me that he did have signed contract but it is in a wharehouse somewhere. I told him that I will not pay it until I see this signed contract. He transferred me to an arbitrator who told me I could see the signed contract in court. I asked them twice to send me the signed contract via certified mail. Never received any response.
Now I received a letter from Thomas & Associates. I called them and told them the story. The lady told me if I gave her $55, she would investigate the claim. I told her she is not getting any money for me and that she would be hearing from my lawyer. She also told me that they do not need a signed contract because when I first used the phone that was an agreement to the Beepers & Phones contract. I told her that it was an agreement to Alltels contract. The fact that she was trying to get $55 out of me to do her job was really sketchy. Is this Thompson & Associates a legitimate Attorneys office.
