I made arrangements with Federal Check Investigations to pay off a debt. Sharon Hamilton at 1888-314 9873 x102 gave me a confirmation # to a company she suggested, for payment of $246 which was debited from my bank account. My bank statement shows payment was made to a company in Clearwater, Fla. Ms. Hamilton assured me my bank statement would serve as proof of my payment. Now, a year later another agency is saying the account was not paid off. I must pay this debt to them.
Is this legal? What can I do to clear this matter up? Help!
got a call
They got me. They claimed I owed a payday loan. I paid them because they were threatening me with court and calling my family. Turns out they don't even have rights to the debt. I paid this same loan off 4 months ago. Learn from me. These guys are scammers
They and another of their bottom feeing debt collector buddies call almost everyday with the SAME message. 9 times out of 10 it is the same recording!! Once there was an actually human who left a message and refered to me by my nickname, like he knew me. JERK!! I have told them and the other group that calls that I WANT them to sue, because than I would get a really address so that I could file harassment charges against them. I have more than enough evidence to prove that I paid this loan almost 3 years ago. However, the company that I had the loan with sold my name to these horrible companies. Most of them are based in Buffalo, NY and the saddest part is they actually scam people into thinking they owe this money, when they really don't!!!!! They should be locked up! They break every law within the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and living in the state that I do, it would get thrown out of court because of the exuberant charges they have added to it.
I got a call from this company talk about a summons and court, i ignored it and i had some man show up and gave me a summons to appear in court at my work in front of all my employees. Is this legal and can i take care of this so i dont have to go to court?
They threaten with a summons being served at your home or place of business if you do not return their call. They only leave a message on the machine. If you answer they hang up. In my opinion they are a bottom feeder debt collector.
Calls me EVERY DAY... no voicemail. The recording is calling for another person's debt, not mine.
Called me three times in a week and tell me that a summons would be served to my home or office if I didn't call them. I have no idea what they are talking about. Also have been calling a friend of mine and saying my name and if this is not this person, don't listen to rest of message. Isn't that illegal?
Called my number looking for someone and said if they didn't call them than a summons would be served. Claimed they were from Federal Check Investigation Services. When they call they were to refer to claim #....
and to call by 9pm tonight or else.
