By law; a debt collector can not release any information until he/she know who is calling, and that they have the responsible parties permission to speak of the debt to anyone besides said person. They are just doing thier job, ma'am.
Same thing for me...This time "Betty" called and left message so I called back to talk with a VERY rude and mean gal named "Pat". I asked what the call was regarding and she kept demanding to know my name. I said I wouldn't tell her my name until I knew who she was with...I ended the call by letting her know that she could catch more flies with hunnie than with vinegar!!
She called me & asked for me but when I asked her who she was all she said was her name was Teri & had very important information for me but would not tell me anymore. She wouldn't even tell me who she's with.
This person if you want to call her that. Does not even respect the bankruptcy laws. I filed and she kept saying that my case would be thrown out because I was representing myself. I told her to not call me anymore. She kept going off that she was going to keep calling. I just hung up on her.
I received a call from this number (881-3679) from someone named Teri, who did not identify the name of her company and only requested I call her back at that number between when I received the call (about 2pm) and 4:30pm. I did not recognize the number and did not answer. I got the number from the voicemail, thinking it might have been someone from my bank as I was expecting a call from them, and ran the number in a search just for kicks. Found this info and now I don't think I'll be returning this person's call.
Message was very short, rude, and threatening. She only identified herself by the name of "Terri", and did not say what company she was calling with.
Short, snippity, and rude. The debt is less than 100 bucks and is less than three months old. There is certainly no call for the snide behavor from this so called professional. She may get a job done but at the cost of her soul!
this person-TERRY, called left a message for me to call back regarding another person. Out of "niceness" I called back and "Pat" answers, puts TERRY on, she was very short, hateful and UNPROFESSIONAL!! Unbelievable that these people have such bad PR abilities!!!! I think they pull the mad, hateful, disrespectful people off the street to make calls to try and collect money--try a different method would be my advise unless of course you are getting paid for the calls you dial!!!
Wow, Teri is becoming infamous. I had the same thing as you all did - a very strange, undetailed voicemail asking for me to pass a message to my father. I suspected this was a debt collector, and when I called, I told her who I was and asked her what this phone call was about. She said, by law, she could only tell me that she was with Springfield Recovery. I said, "OK, I'll tell my dad, but if you can't be a little more specific about why you're calling ME on his behalf, then I can't guarantee that he will call you back." To this she responded, "Well, you're only hurting your dad if you do that." She was very threatening and rude and, at the end of the call, just started talking over me in this very sugary sweet tone and hung up on me. Is it legal what she is doing? She is certainly ruthless and rude. I wonder how she sleeps at night?
My wife received a message from this number and a rough sounding individual named Teri. I called the number back and spoke Teri, and she never identified herself as a collector, only attempted to gain information about me. Not until the end of the call, did she identify herself as a Collector, with "Springfield Recovery". After learning this I asked her politely to take my wife's number off of her directory and contact me only. I explained that we have retained an attorney for Bankruptcy and she would need to send me whatever information she had on file for me, which turns out to be a $45.00 Allied Waste bill for service we never had, as we canceled it prior. It is my estimation that Teri may be a good person, just trying to do her job. But when it comes to knowledge and class, I did not find any as she hung up on me as I tried to explain to her my desire not to have anymore calls. I wish her the best. LMB
