Seven years ago I had gotten into financial difficulties and took out a few pay day loans over the internet. When the companies contnued to take money from my account and overdraft fees started to mount, my bank suggested that we close the account open a new one and deal with them on an individual basis. To some extent that worked. I paid them all off through various agencies and kept all correspondance. I still ocasionally get calls from places trying to collect the debts again and most places give me a fax number to send copies of who I paid to them. I started getting calls from a firm claiming that I still owed loan point usa even though I paid that one off more then 4 and a half years ago and I have the paid letter from the firm that I paid. I told the first person who called that I had and accused me of trying to dance around the debt and threatening to take me to court. I offered to send them the paper work and was told that I can show them in court and then he decided to get nasty so I hung up. Recieved another call a week later from a woman and I told her the same thing at which point she usecd the same threats and hung up. I got another call again today. This time I started out with what sounded like the same woman and then was transfered to the chief investigator. He explained that it did not matter what I had if I did not pay them it would not hold up in court, but if I was willing to make a counter offer they would consider it, naturally. I asked for the name and address of their firm he gave it to me when he thought I was going to send them a check. Then I told him I wanted it so I new who to sue for harrassment. He said are you going to make an offer and I told him zero, I have no intention of paying it again. He then sent me the closing department to take it to court, all very official sounding. This firm and loanpoint are using illegal tactics to collect paid debts. Richardson simms uses fake phone numbers to make youy believe they are in your area and more likely to take you to court. I am sure I will get another call from their process server in about week giving mr one nore chance to pay. Is there anything I can do to stop these agencies that buy old debts and try and collect them even thougn they are paid already? This getting old. By the way none of them have ever shown up on a credit report since they were paid. I know I won't be able to sue because these places dissappear or change names as fast as they come up. Is there any way to stop this.
