This company continues to write and call at all hours; trying to collect a debt from my son that will be incarcerated for 8 years.

I have told them over and over I am not responible for this debt and where this person can be reached.

I am caring for my sons 3 small children and do not need the stress of this debt collector; my energy needs to go these 3 small children, one being disabled.

National Action financial Services does not listen to what you are saying.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

This should stop them dead in their tracks.

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

You should send them a certified, return receipt requested letter demanding that they stop harassing you immediately. Explain to them that your son does NOT live with you and include contact information for him at the facility where he is incarcerated. You should also mention to them that they are violating the FDCPA by continuing to contact you about HIS debt.

More importantly, you should remind them that they are violating Article 29H of the the New York State General Business Laws by deliberately harassing you and that if they make any further contact with you, it will be considered a deliberate act to inflict emotional harm and a deliberate violation of Article 29H and that you will file CRIMINAL complaints with the Erie County District Attorney and/or the New Yorks State Office of the Attorney General.

If they are fool enough to contact you again after they receive your letter, you've got them! Proceed with a demand they be prosecuted by the county DA. You may also choose to hire an attorney to sue them in District Court (downtown Buffalo) for FDCPA violations as well as actual damages.

Article 29H applies to ANYONE attempting to collect consumer debt, creditors and debt collectors. Each occurance of violation is a seperate misdemeanor and can be prosecuted by ANY COUNTY District Attorney or the Attorney General.

You may contact the Erie Country District Attorney's office at this website to obtain information as to how to request prosecution: http://www.erie.gov/da/

You may contact the NY State Office of the Attorney General at this website to file a complaint: http://www.oag.state.ny.us/

Good luck.
