I've been struggling with jobs and housing since 2016, Having a felony and a eviction the only place I could live was a extended stay $250 a week. On my credit Southwest Recovery in bold letters; Nobody would rent to me. So I finally called them after avoiding their calls for 3 yrs and believe it or not they gave me a deal as well as a offer for a payment plan. I feel like I just left church full of joy, and they offered to write a letter for me so that I can finally move out this roach motel. I'm humbled and very grateful. Thank you.
Now, I know what some of you are thinking as most people will not share great experiences about debt collection agencies, but the experience I had with Brandi of Southwest Recovery Services, was not what I expected. My name is Tammy, and I was contacted by this agency for a debt owed to a cell phone company. About 2 years ago I was the main account holder for a family plan and during a week of visiting family for the holidays, the inevitable happened. Needless to say, like most airlines, some of my luggage was misplaced along with my and my son's very expensive phones. Although the bags were eventually recovered, my belongings were not all accounted for.
I ended up downgrading our cell phones as I found my insurance was going to only cover a very minuscule amount; not the entire price of replacing the phones. Between the issues with the airline and the fact that I had since downgraded I didn't even think about being charged for the old phones as I had forgotten they were not fully paid for. Needless to say, this came back to bite me in the bum! Years later I received a notice about me owing a debt of roughly $1,100 to my old cellular provider. I was confused initially and couldn't quite place what the debt was concerning. I had spoken to a rep and was down-talked and bullied before being told absolutely nothing. My file was then forwarded to Southwest Recovery for collection.
Unlike how I was treated from the cell company, Ms. Brandi (I cannot remember her last name for the life of me), was very compassionate and listened to my story as I tried to piece together just what had happened. She treated me like a person, not just a number and left me feeling a lot less abused. In the end she had counseled me through the process and we ended up doing a settlement for a fraction of the amount I was asked to pay. Trust me, when you're a single mother, every little bit of help matters! I'm not someone who has debts amounting all over the place. I was simply someone who had befell a series of unfortunate events and was thankfully saved by the people of Southwest Recovery. I'm not sure the entire ordeal would have gone differently had I been contacted by another agency, but I was happy to have met Brandi. She did a wonderful job! Thank You.

I had a debt with this company and Leslie ** was so kind and worked with me every step of the way to get it paid. She wasn't rude like most debt collectors. She was patience with me even when I had to delay a payment. I really do appreciate her working with me until I paid the debt in full.
Some person called Patricia ** from Southwest Recovery has been calling my prepaid cell phone looking for some person that I never heard of and I told her the same, but every day I get three to four recorded messages to call 972-984-5066. I only get 125 minutes per month on my cell phone plan that is being used up to delete all of these bogus messages. They never answer their phone and then it just disconnects every time. Every time that I did get someone on the phone they quickly disappear and someone else starts calling every day leaving prerecorded messages. Some government agency somewhere needs to shut this company down they try to get quick money from unsuspecting consumers.
In business transactions, especially real estate deals, the contract often contains a full disclosure requirement. Full disclosure means being truthful and forthcoming about anything the other party should know regarding any material issues involving the transaction, especially if it may mean the difference between the other party entering or not entering the deal. Just because the Hills Above Possum Kingdom give him a copy of the contract, they assume he is correct. The contract dispute is between the Hills and me, not him, and the southwest people have run my credit history without permission - calling at odd hours and just being a pain the backside resulting in a credit report in the neg.
I just pulled my credit report to find VMRI to claim that I owe $568. I've never heard of them nor do I feel I should pay something they cannot prove I owe just to clear my credit. What a scam!
I recently received a copy of my Experian credit report and found a negative report from Southwest Recovery Services that I did not know anything about. I called SWS and spoke with a male customer service rep named Steve. Well, Steve told me that I owed on a loan from 2010 that I did not pay. I asked whom I owed this money to and was told I owed it to Cash Net.com, whom I never heard of, and that Cash Net.com deposited money into my account. The problem is, I never heard of Cash Net.com, and the bank this money supposedly went into was a closed account. I asked Steve for Cash Net’s telephone numbers and his contract or account numbers so I could call and find out about this and get it cleared up. I also stated, “If I owed money to a company you are working for, why didn't you call me or send me some sort of letter before reporting this to a credit reporting agency?” He said they did call and gave me a phone number I haven't had in 8 years.
I called Cash Net.com and their supervisors told me that I am not in their system for a loan and never have been. I called SWS back and told Steve of my findings. He told me to have Cash Net.com to fax him the information. Well, Cash Net.com states they cannot do that legally. What can I do to remove this from my report? I will not pay a bill that is not mine!
I also have been hit with a negative item on my credit report, also claiming that I did not pay back a loan from CashNet. I have never even heard of that company and they claim that they processed a loan for me in the amount of $588. I am trying to get in touch with a Steve, who said all I needed is my bank statements, which I have and now I need their fax number to show that I never had a loan with them. It sounds like this is a sham to get money from people. I refuse to pay them any money I did not receive.
I have noticed this company on my credit report. They somehow got my sister's phone number and have called her numerous times. I called and told them to stop calling her and to call me, but they will not. Also, I was going to get a loan with Cash Net, and closed out the page before accepting it. They still processed the loan anyhow.
Now they are wanting me to pay $773.00 for a loan I did not approve. I told them I would pay them, and asked for an address to send the money. They will not give me one. I only get the responses like "we don't accept Mailed payments". They wanted a credit card number, or bank account information over the the phone only. So, now I guess they are stuck on my credit report. It caused a negative credit mark, for an account that I did not authorized to begin with. I have tried disputing with Expieran, but still it remains
I have been receiving phone calls from Taylor. He claims to represent Southwest Recovery Services and their client is VRMI. I have no idea of either company. Taylor also states that he has my social and bank account information and that he is trying to collect a debt of 588 for a bad check. He claims that I took out a payday loan with cashnet. I have never had a loan with them. I also went a little further and called the cashnet company and they assured me that I didn't and have never had an account with them. As a result the charges have been placed on my credit report.
