Gaorgia Check RecoveryP.O. box 45 Jersey, Georgia United States of America
YESTERDAY, 01/26/2010, I RECEIVED A LETTER IN THE MAIL FROM A SO CALLED COLLECTIONS AGENCY, GEORGIA CHECK RECOVERY. THE LETTER STATED THAT IT WAS A THIRD NOTICE FOR A CHECK THAT HAD NOT CLEARED FROM 06/30/2006, I NEVER GOT A FIRST NOTICE, THAT I NEED TO CALL THEM A.S.A.P. OR THEY WILL TURN ME OVER TO A COMPANY THAT DEALS WITH OVER 300,000 COMPANIES AND WILL TELL THEM NOT TO TAKE MY CHECKS, AND THAT I WILL BE TURNED OVER TO THE DA AND SUED.
I PHONED THIS SO CALLED COLLECTIONS AGENCY TODAY, 01/27/2010. I SPOKE TO A MRS. RAEGAN AT 12:05P.M. SHE TOLD ME THE CHECK #, THE PLACE WHERE THE CHECK WAS MADE OUT TO (WESTERN SIZZLEN), THE BANK I USE TO BANK AT AT THE TIME THE CHECK WAS MADE. THE THING THAT STRUCK ME AS ODD IS THAT SHE TOLD ME THAT I OWE $122.76, I SPOKE UP AND SAID EXCUSE ME I DO NOT RECALL EATING $122.76 WORTH OF FOOD AND I WOULD HAVE TO CONTACT THE BANK THAT I USED AT THE TIME THE CHECK WAS MADE, OVER 3 AND 1/2 YEARS AGO. SHE SAID WELL I DO HAVE A COPY OF THE CHECK IN FRONT OF ME, I SAID THEN WHAT IS THE REAL PRICE OF THE CHECK. SHE THEN TOLD ME THAT IT DID NOT SAY THE REAL AMOUNT JUST MY INFO. I THEN SAID SO WHAT ARE YOU SAYING YOU JUST MADE UP A PRICE FOR ME TO PAY YOU?? SHE THEN SAID THAT IT WAS FEES ADDED TO THE AMOUNT AFTER IT WAS INSUFICIANT. I SAID WELL I'M GOING TO CHECK WITH MY BANK AND I WILL GET BACK WITH YOU. SHE THEN SAID WELL MAKE IT SNAPPY BECAUSE IF THIS IS NOT PAID BY FRIDAY, 01/29/2010, WE WILL TAKE YOU TO COURT!!
I THEN HUNG UP ON HER AND PHONED THE BANK I USED AT THE TIME THAT I MADE THAT CHECK OUT. THE BANK MANAGER SAID THAT SHE PULLED IT UP AND THE CHECKED DID IN DEED CLEAR AND IT WAS ONLY FOR $22.92 NOT $122.76!! SO I WENT STRAIGHT TO THE BANK AND GOT THE BANK STATEMENT PROVING IT DID CLEAR.
I THEN PHONED GEORGIA CHECK RECOVERY BACK AT 1:10 P.M. THE PERSON WHO ANSWERED THE PHONE SAID HER NAME WAS BAILEY, THEN SHE TRANSFERED ME TO MRS. WADES AND MRS. RAEGAN. I FOUNDTHAT STRANGE THAT I WAS TRANSFERED TO 2 PEOPLE. I EXPLAINED TO THEM THAT THE CHECK DID IN FACT CLEAR. THEY TOLD ME TO FAX ALL THE INFO TO THEM AND THEY WILL MAKE IT TO WHERE I DO NOT HAVE TO PAY THE $122.76 JUST A $54 FEE TO GEORGIA CHECK RECOVERY FOR WESTERN SIZZLEN PUTTING ME INTO COLLECTIONS IN THE FIRST PLACE. I SAID THAT DOES NOT MAKE ANY SINCE TO ME AT ALL BECAUSE THE CHECK WAS PAID THAT I SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN PUT INTO COLLECTIONS AT ALL!! MRS. RAEGAN THEN SAID THAT I CAN PAY THE $54 OR THE LETTERS AND PHONE CALLS WILL CONTINUE AND I WILL BE SUED BY THEM. I THEN ADVISED HER THAT I WORK WITH COLLECTION AGENCIES AS WELL WHERE I WORK AND WE DO NOT MAKE THE PATIENT PAY THEIR COLLECTION FEE THAT IT IS TAKEN OUT OF COLLETIONS CHECK TO US. SHE KEPT ARGUING WITH ME. I THEN ASKED HER WHAT IS THE DATE THAT WESTERN SIZZLEN PUT ME INTO COLLECTIONS BECAUSE I HAVE NOT MOVED FROM WHERE I LIVED WHEN I WROTE THIS CHECK THAT DID CLEAR AND MY # IS THE SAME. SHE THEN SAID WELL I DO NOT KNOW THE DATE THEY PUT YOU IN COLLECTIONS, PROBELY THE SAME DAY THE CHECK DID NOT CLEAR. I TOLD HER AGAIN THE CHECK CLEARED THE FRIST TIME. SHE THEN SCREAMED TO ME YOU CAN PAY UP THE $54 BEFORE 01/29/2010 OR I WILL TURN YOU INTO THE DA!! THEN SHE HUNG UP ON ME.
I WAS SO MAD BY THIS TIME THAT I PHONED THE WESTERN SIZZLEN AND SPOKE TO THE OWNER. HE ADVISED ME THAT HE HAS NEVER USED A COLLECTIONS AGENCY, TO BRING A COPY OF THE LETTER TO HIM AND HE WILL TURN IT INTO THE PROPER ATHORITIES. SO TODAY AFTER I GET OFF OF WORK THAT IS WHAT I AM GOING TO DO.
I JUST HOPE THAT GEORGIA CHECK RECOVERY WILL BE STOPPED ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!!
SO IF YOU RECEIVE A LETTER FROM THEM PLEASE DO NOT PAY OR GIVE INTO THEM, THEY ARE SO SICK AND TWISTED FOR STEALING PEOPLES MONEY AND IDENTITIES!!!!
