I recently received a phone call at my work from this collection agency. The woman Candice calls as if she knows you and leaves a phone number to call her back at. These kind of calls being made at my place of business are causing great disruptment. I am on the verg of being fired from my job because of these harrassing phone calls. PLEASE HELP!!!

Sorry, I'm not a Collector

AUTHOR: Sara - (U.S.A.)

Hate to burst your bubble but I am not a debt collector. However I do pay my obligations.

So good luck, ignore the bill and follow whatever advice you'd like, but please don't come whining to this site when you end up getting wages garnished or bank account seized. Or, feel free to do so and give me a chuckle.

Sara is a debt collector herself - do not believe her at all

AUTHOR: Laurie - (U.S.A.)

That is the only reason why she would dare to suggest you contact them at all.

Meghan, do NOT listen to Sara!!!!!!

AUTHOR: Truth Detector - (U.S.A.)

Sara wrote:

'Of course, if you truly owe the debt I strongly suggest contacting them to make arrangements to take care of your obligation, that will end a lot of your problems.'

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! Making 'arrangements' enables bottom-feeding, scum-sucking collectors like Viking and NEVER results in anything good for the consumer. Sara either has no clue about collection law or she makes her home somewhere IN THE LAND OF OZ.

Once you even discuss payment arrangements, the Statute of Limitations regarding the ability to bring suit on that debt will automatically re-start. It will be at that point that this bottom-feeder will sue you for every penny they can collect - including their so-called 'fees and charges'. DO NOT DISCUSS PAYMENT, PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS, OR ANYTHIGN ELSE WITH THESE SCUMGBAGS!

You reside in PA. They operate out of MN. The chances that they would pursue ANYTHING from a collection standpoint subsequent to receiving your notification by mail when the distance between the two parties is over 1,100 miles is slim and none. These slugs will dry up when you pour salt on them i.e. a CEASE COMMUNICATIONS LETTER...bank on it.

Not against the law

AUTHOR: Sara - (U.S.A.)

It is not against the law for a collection agency to contact you at work. However, if you send a letter to them, I suggest with registered mail, and request that they do not contact you at work they have to abide by that. Remember, the request must be in writing.

Of course, if you truly owe the debt I strongly suggest contacting them to make arrangements to take care of your obligation, that will end a lot of your problems.

It is against the law for them to call you at work

AUTHOR: Steph - (U.S.A.)

Tell them it is against the law and company policy for you to take personal calls . 1 called me at my place of employment a while back . I told this fool he had no right to call me at my place of employment and harrass me . Ask you boss to get on the phone and tell this fool not to call here again or he will report them for harrassment then send a stop contact letter certified. When a bill collector asks for your work # refuse to give it to them
