Contacted TRANSWORLD to actually pay the debt I owed. Was told that I should dispute the debt. I paid 1 dollar to retrieve my credit report, to look for errors. The dollar paid went to a company called 'IDENTITY IQ'? I unknowingly subscribed to a credit monitoring service, that's been a nightmare to cancel. Charging my card 20 dollars a month. Ultimately I was forced to make a fraud claim, cancel my card, and now I don't know what to do about the debt. Business ethics have changed drastically in this country. Very sad...

Our office engaged Transworld Systems Inc. for collection services, facilitated by their agent, James **. Unfortunately, my experience with their service is extremely poor. Despite prepaying for 100 collection accounts over a 2-year period, the service proved highly ineffective. No collections were made, and the collection information on their portal was all incorrect. Attempts to address the issues with James ** were met with resistance, as he refused to refund the remaining unused accounts. The lack of transparency and cooperation and their ineffectiveness left me dissatisfied with their services. This company was a waste of time, money, and effort. NOT RECOMMENDED!

We tried to use this company to collect a debt. They were not able to collect anything or even find the people that owe us money. The debt collection was pending for about 2 years and was completely useless. Waste of time!

Our office used Transworld for over 10 years to attempt to collect unpaid patient bills, reducing our administrative burden. "Attempt" was pretty much all they did (for a fee). Their accounting was extremely misleading - I estimated that at best we broke even (i.e. what they collected versus what we paid). However, they claimed to be benefitting us significantly. I would not trust this company at all and am now embarrassed that we used them at all, versus just writing off unpaid bills after, say, 3 months. I can't recommend them except as a tool to make you (as a client) feel that you "are doing something".

Just received a debt collection attempt under my father's name at the home I grew up in where he lived before he died in 1997. I knew what it was and ripped it up to toss in the trash same as the other collection agency who tried this ** two years ago. But I wanted to post here about it so people realize this is a scam to bleed money from people. Why did it take 26 years for them to 'decide' he has a debt to pay? Because they must have some information about an account he once had 26+ years ago.
Having lived in this home since the 70s, there is no way Verizon would have not bothered to collect this way back then if he ever owed any money. Nor would they have not attempted to get it from my mother in the two decades she was here before I took over. Simply put, this is a shady company that looks for old accounts to tell people they owe money that they never did.

This robocall collection company claims "this is a business matter" when they leave a message and does not disclose they are a collection agency but state they are calling from the Federal Government. They call every single day which is against Canadian Law. Collection agencies have laws they are to follow and they will be reported. Impersonating a government official will get you up to 5 years in jail.

This co. has called me off and on for years. I owe nothing and they just started calling again. They are not BBB accredited however the BBB has a government warning about Transworld and their practices on their website. BEWARE!

This place is constantly calling me and never leaving a message. I have nothing in collections, and I'm up to date on all bills. I called their number back 888-899-6650 and talk to someone. I asked why they keep calling me and never leaving a message. He didn't ask for a ph#, my name or any other identifying information. He just said they've been calling because they are trying to reach Eileen. No Eileen is at this phone number. Funny thing is I called from my work phone, which is a private number as I work in healthcare so there's no way for them to pull up who it is registered under.
Since they didn't ask for my information or my ph# that they have been calling, but instead made up some name of a person they are trying to reach, this leads me to believe this is a FAKE business and they are trying to scam people. I will continue to BLOCK their number and will call and bother them at random times during the day whenever I get bored.

I have never experienced such unprofessionalism and such stupidity, such rudeness in my whole entire 21 years of life. Not only do these people not know how to follow rules. This is the most unprofessional, collection agency, known to mankind. These people have called me, harassed me over a month for money that I have already paid, but I’m paying it again so I can go to school. Harassed me about money I have given these people money over the phone and they have misplaced my payment.
I go to call them tonight asking for my username because the website won’t let me in the account that I have with them. I called the collection agency tonight the woman that answered, refused to help me, talked over me, repeated herself multiple times after I specifically said that the information that she’s giving me I already have but I need help finding my username. The woman then hung up in my face and blocked my number. Completely unprofessional and I really hope these people go out of business.

I have never received a letter or call from these people yet I had two collections drop onto my credit from October and March during which I lived in completely different states. I have never gone to the doctor or hospital in either of these months. In March I had Tricare and it would’ve all been paid for anyways. This is absolutely a scam! Tried calling the number and it doesn’t go through to anyone. Reported it to Transunion and they took both off within minutes. That leads me to believe they’ve dealt with them before and already know they’re fraudulent. I can’t believe this is a legitimate company. Hopefully not for much longer. They need a lawsuit against them and it might be from me!
