This company is collecting a debt. Okay. I understand. Yes, things got away from me and, no excuse, this debt incurred. There are circumstances, but that is my cross to bear, noone elses. With that said, this company uses bullying tactics that left my daughter in tears as she heard EVERYTHING this man, Mr. King, said , and threatened. That I was going to be "arrested" for theft, all over missing some payments on my daughters saxophone. He went on to say that he "checked me out" and that I was an "upstanding citizen" with no warrents and no "issues with the law" Really? It turns out he called all over the country to alert my family about my debt. I live in New York and he called my 78 yr old mother in Texas - Really?
He told family members that he was an attorney, that I was in trouble and that he needed to speak to me immediately, or he needed my attorney's phone number. Bully Bully Bully. Scaring an old lady states away about her daughter. Wow.
This "gentle"man <using the term loosely> wanted full payment by 3:00 that afternoon - the full price for the sax that I was renting is $2400. I do not have $2400 sitting in an account - if i did - do you think I would be renting in the first place? If payment was not received - then police action would ensue. I told him, at that point, that I was recording the conversation. He was not happy with that at all.
Bottom line - I want to fix the issue - I have no problems taking care of my mess - but using these tactics should not be allowed. Send me a letter. I have yet to receive ONE. Calling me during the day doesn't work - I'm not home. I'm working. I understand that they have a job to do - but really - making people cry? Scaring family members with vague yet troubling messages?
Really. How do you look in the mirror at the end of the day.
