I used to be with T-Mobile but after over three years, my spouse failed to pay the cell phone bill for two months and they cut the service off. I paid T-Mobile for the two months I was behind in service and asked them to reinstate the service. I was told they would do that in a couple days.

A week went by and no service. I called again and was told the service would be started up again. Another week went by with no service and I called T-Mobile again and this time I was told that since they had sent the bill for the two months of back service to a collection agency they could not reinstate my service.

Then about a month later they sent me a bill for $200 claiming I had terminated my contract with them before a two year period so I owed them the $200 punishment. I explained to them I had been with T-Mobile for over 3 years and did not renew my contract but only paid month to month and I never terminated my service but asked for my service to be reinstated which they originally told me they would do. So I did not owe them $200.

They turned the bill over to Pinnacle Financial Group which has done everything they could to call me at all hours of the day and night to demand payment. I have told them on at least 10 different occasions not to call me as I do not owe T-Mobile anything and gave them the full explaination as stated above. They continue to harrass me.

Bud Says Consumer Comments Below

Anyone receiving court papers with affidavits by Sue Argentieri are warned her affidavits may be false, bogus, full of hearsay and perjury. Sue claims to have knowledge on accounts by stating she has care, custody and control of all records concerning account of...

Sue's a LIAR!

She's employed by LVNV Funding - they acquired the account after charge off. Her statements are hearsay and blatantly false, yet they plead as true in court filings. This is just another example of lying and using the courts to extort money from consumers. Sue Argentieri should face criminal prosecution for lying on court papers.
To see how these organizations are structured go to:
All of these bottom-feeders started from the same mold, Sherman/Alegis out of Houston was originally started by Frank S. Russo, Tony M. Ettinger, Thomas E. Upton, Samuel Bergman and Richard Dunn all of Houston, Texas. They purchased old debts for pennies, and then set up collection agencies to collect on them at inflated prices.

As with most bottom-feeders, they have had to resort to placing all accounts on consumer credit reports, inflate the balances and demand settlements. Alegis became Sherman, which became LVNV and now Resurgent and Ventus are all in the bottom-feeder business. They do file lawsuits, most with bogus affidavits and pleadings. They use under-educated employees such as Allison Moon of Greenville, SC to sign affidavits where she lies about the authenticity of accounts (see Allison Moon is a Liar' below) in their attempts to give credibility to their bogus pleadings. The problem with liars like Allison B. Moon is she makes statements known to be false. Her swearing is nothing more than hearsay and an attempt to defraud consumers out of monies they may not legally owe, not to mention the fraud she and her organizations bring into the courts. Consumers dealing with these bogus filings and affidavits are urged to challenge their validity in order to avoid becoming another victim to their scam and being ripped off.

You are further urged to go after these bottom-feeders for the lies they place on your credit reports. Under provisions of the federal law, the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) any item placed upon your credit bureau reports MUST be accurate.' In my experience, I doubt anything placed by a bottom-feeder could ever meet the legitimacy of that test. Consumers are urged to dispute any LVNV, Sherman, Alegis, Resurgent, Ventus account with the credit bureaus and make demand upon the organizations and their owners to abide by the law. They receive a fat check to lie about things that cause you misery, higher interest rates, credit denials and in most cases, don't have the required documentation that would meet the definition of accurate.' All of these owners, board members, attorneys and employees can and should be held strictly responsible when that information does NOT meet the legal definition, as stated by law.

The reason the Allison B. Moons of this industry are getting away with this is because no one is going after her. That can easily change if enough consumers decide they are fed up at being taken advantage of and strike back at these bogus filings, pleadings and credit bureau placements. There are consumer law professionals at NACA who may be able to assist you if your rights are being violated, go to: www.naca.net tell them Bud Hibbs sent you.

We need to heed the lessons of ENRON and make sure that Allison B. Moon is held accountable when she breaks the law.

CAUTION: I recommend you NEVER disclose your bank account or credit card information to a debt collector, as you risk them emptying your account, or maxing out your credit card. If you feel they are reporting on your credit bureau files in error or need assistance in dealing with them, email the details w/your location. Assistance and referral to a consumer legal specialist may be available
