I had a Dell account that my husband paid off in May 2003. We got a letter from another collection agency telling us that we could do a settlement, so my husband went ahead and took the deal, paying this other collection agency $1467.40 with a balance of $400 something that was written off. Well, the same company I paid this to, a couple years later contacted me about the $400 + change. They soon discovered that 2 extra numbers were added to my original account to make it look like a 2nd account and told me they wouldn't contact me again about it and they were sorry.
I called Dell and asked them if I still owed this and they told me NO! So, a couple years ago, PENTAGROUP FINANCIAL, LLC. contacted me about the same $400+. I told them that I didn't owe anything and it was taken care of. They refused to take a credit report or any other paperwork from me stating this. My husband and I have been putting up with these people for around 2 years now. No matter what we say, they don't listen!! I've asked them to send proof that I owe this and of course, they can't. My husband told them to just take us to court and the man said "Oh, we can't do that." Whatever! I don't appreciated trying to be frauded! I have never, ever given them any bank or credit card info. If I truly owed this, it would have been paid LONG ago. We talked to our lawyer and he informed us to not take the calls or send anything to them.
I really wish these people would stop harassing! They have sooo many different phone numbers that they call from. Some say Pentagroup and some just say "Unknown". They called me from 2 different phone numbers today; 4 times within 15 mins!!!!!!
Good luck to everyone else out there dealing with this place!
