Transworld Systems is extremely unprofessional, they will make your call in a circle and then the rude customer service will hang up without any explanation. Not sure, why I give them 1, it should be 0 (Zero). I'll complain to Better Business Bureau, I urge, please report to BBB in your state so these company may learn their lesson (which they will not).

I had a bill that had gone to them while I was in the process of requesting financial assistance at a medical facility. I spoke with Transworld on three occasions, and they were extremely kind and understanding. They even wished me, at the end of each phone call, a good day and to stay safe.

As a Purple Heart veteran, this company are heartless and do not care about military personnel. Call them, and you'll see what I mean. Other companies are willing to help and work with you, not this guys. If I could give it a zero, I would.

Apparently, I had an outstanding payment from a doctor's office of $69 from 2015. I have not received communication since I last paid and thought it was paid off years ago. Today, I see my credit score dropped by 64 points because they reported a missed payment of $69. I ordered a Truck recently and it arrives this week. Unbelievable. Just send a bill by email, mail, whatever every month if there is balance! I am not sure it was even correct. Clerical errors exist and companies with such poor ratings are likely mismanaged leading to further errors and bad behavior.

I got a bill in the mail from Transworld. There is no name on the account. Just my address. They say I owe Fedex $800!!! I have never used Fedex in my life. Well I've tried calling for 3 days and when I call the 800# it doesn't even ring I just get "thank you for calling we are not available now" and it hangs up. Is this even a legit company?

I checked my credit report and saw an $8,000 dollar debt. I’m not tracking any reason why that should be there. It’s listed as TRANSWORLD SYS INC/926. I went to their website, selected “contact us”. Link doesn’t work. I call their contact number, and the voicemail says the mailbox is full and can’t accept new messages. So they are allowed to negatively impact me by posting on my credit report but they are not available to give me a chance to review the validity of the debt? Shady and unfair!!!

I got a letter from Transworld in re: to Disaster Relief Hurricane Katrina (2005) FEMA saying that I owe $5003.38!! However, in 2016 when we had a huge flooding event, I was eligible for FEMA and FEMA said nothing to me about a debt I owed them. I would NOT have gotten approved for assistance if I owed them money. Principal is $5,003.38. Accrued Interest $419.26. Penalty Charges $2,520.79. Admin Costs $15.00. Other Fees $2,546.37. Balance Due $10,504.80.
However, FEMA knows nothing about this debt I so call owe. It's been 15yrs since Katrina and 4yrs since the flooding event since I've dealt with FEMA so I am curious since FEMA knows nothing about this, how can someone come after me for something that FEMA knows nothing about. FEMA has everything from my past claims on file so I am a bit confused. They say they will garnish my wages at 15% until paid in full. A 15yr so called debt with FEMA that nobody seems to know about besides TRANSWORLD is very suspicious.

No help with a incorrect debt. They are called a Parasitic Company, now I know why. I will never pay this bill now, even if they did have some proof. It is a hospital by my insurance. They don't care if you owe the money or not. Thieves!!!!

I received a bill in the mail addressed to my apartment complex at my address without my name. They claim money is owed to the local power company. My name isn't there, only the address and a bill. There is an account number as well, which is not mine. Very strange. Bad business.

I had Transworld Systems Inc. send a wage garnishment letter to my new employer for a military star card that I haven't used in over 4 years. They informed my employer that I owed $2390 and would be garnishing my wages all while acting like a branch of the federal government. I called the star card customer service and verified that I did have a balance but it was only $1400. I also called Transworld Systems Inc. to figure out what this was all about and was asked for an account number that I explained there wasn't one on the paperwork they sent my company. They hung up on me.
I seem to remember getting numerous calls from this company and eventually had to block 10's of numbers because they were always unprofessional aggressive and never would tell me what they were calling about. I also receive about 30 messages every 2 weeks from their 888 number that just says to call Bryan. This is a harassing parasitic company that illegally tries to charge consumers far more than they owe on a debt and they don't even remove the debt from your credit or apply the funds to the debt. They are scum. I have contacted a law firm and am dealing with them that way.

I am going to call the bank tomorrow and reverse the charges. I was notified that there was an outstanding debt that was not on my credit report. Bogus charges from an old apartment complex. I let the rep convince me that taking them to court would cost almost the same amount they were charging. I paid this company 2000 dollars. No one can give me proof this was paid in full when I requested this multiple times. I spoke with many people who refused to give me a supervisor.
Once I finally did get one (could have been another scammer) she told me that no one ever processed the account. The apartment complex said they had to update that any account was ever paid!!!! So the apartment kept tell me to call the company back that took my money because they have no knowledge of anything. I asked the rep for an address and website to report Transworld and she had no clue of either. Since I can’t get the correct information from the company to sue, I’m going to reverse the charges. I’m going to take the apartment complex to court. Civil court I hear takes time but at least you won’t be scammed.

I never heard of this company until it made derogatory remarks on my credit report. I had disputed charges made by an apartment complex. Maybe they sold the so called debt to Transworld without knowledge or response to my dispute.

I've received several calls from this company. When I called them back thinking it was with a bank I was applying for a loan through they just stated "Transworld Systems INC". When I asked who they are and what they represent the lady screamed at me through the phone. I cursed her pretty righteous and hung up then blocked the number. I read they are a collection agency but I don't have any debt behind so I had a feeling it was a scam.

I have a legitimate medical bill I owe that happens to be with this company. I wanted to take care of it and set monthly payment arrangement for it since I'm on a tight budget. Well I guess the rep decided that I needed to pay it faster and changed it to bi-monthly arrangements. Which as you can guess, over-drafted my bank account, which is embarrassing as I haven't had an over-draft since I was young. When I called and demanded a refund they tried to get me to keep the payment as is and change the arrangement from there. Nope, as it is it's a good thing I have a little cash on me to get me through the 4 days till payday. They say they are refunding it but can't tell me when that will happen. I'm not holding my breath that will happen at all. I'm usually smarter than to fall for something like this. Thank goodness my bank is working with me and refunded the over draft fee. Whatever you do, DO NOT set payment arrangements with this company.

About a year ago, I received correspondence from this fraudulent and nuisance of a company that the US government has allowed to continue to harass and cause emotional and mental anguish and anxiety to innocent consumers, such as myself. They have purported a scheme that I have a debt with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Agency, Bureau of Fiscal Services in the base amount of $5006.08. They then tacked on accrued interest costs of $226.46, penalty charges of $1,354.28, administrative costs of $480.00 and other unknown fees of $2,261.06, to the tune of $9,327.88.
I'm disabled, retired and have contacted Homeland Security on several occasions to determine the origin of this debt. They stated each time, there is no debt or record of reporting a debt. When contacted by Transworld Systems on another occasion, I informed them that I would sue them if they even thought of reporting this debt to any credit bureau. If anyone knows of a class action suit against them, etc., please let me know. I'm on-board.

I've received numerous calls from Transworld Systems Incorporated. Each time they claim to represent UCSF Medical stating I owe money and they are the collection agency. They are lying. UCSF Medical has their own billing department and I confirmed with UCSF Medical that I owe zero dollars. Transworld Systems Incorporated is a parasitic company. I don't understand how they remain in business. The leadership needs to be in prison for fraud.

These people Robocall my home constantly. I keep blocking the number but they use a different number with every call. My credit score is over 800, and I have no debts past or present. There is no earthly reason for these people to contact me, and I can only assume they are lying. On one call, they actually threatened a court case. One time I did answer the call to them, and told them to put it in writing. Naturally no letter ever arrived.

Transworld is a scam, do not fall for it!!! I received 2 letter from them (1 a few weeks ago & 1 today) stating that I owed $ to Blue Shield of CA (BS). I knew this was not true,, as I had never received any letters from BS saying I owed them any money, plus my FICO score is 862, obviously, I have excellent credit and never had any accounts go to collections. This letter sounded very suspicious.... I immediately contacted BS and told them about the letter. After checking my account, the agent said "no, you do not owe us money and there is no record of having your account go to any collection agency." After I gave him the 800 # on the letter, he called them.
This is when it gets very interesting, the woman at Transworld would not answer any of the agent's questions and kept asking him personal questions about me. The agent did not respond and wanted to have a 3 way conference call w/ me and Transworld, but the woman gave some bogus excuse that she was not allowed to have a conference call w/ multiple callers..ha, no surprise on that. Scammers don't want to leave trails of their criminal activities. The agent at BS send a message to their fraud dept to investigate. I have not heard from the agent or the team, yet, but will f/u this week. If it smells like ** it probably is, follow your gut feeling. The agent at BS said he would send a message to their.

So I defaulted on my Star Card back in 2010 (that was my fault) and it was sent to collections. Fast forward to 2019 I got a letter saying my Federal taxes were taken to pay a debt to AAFES. Oh I had no Idea I forgot about this and it needs to get paid, so I call the number and talk to someone, her name was J. **, I found out that my card was sent to collections and after 9 years of sitting in collections I owed a total of (after the feds sent them my $1200.00 tax return) $9,046.08. I was taken back to say the least so I ask how that was possible. Well they charge a 17.63% interest rate. My Credit card is lower than that by 1.60%.
Anyway because the IRS was giving away my money I had zero choice but to pay them off hidden fees and all, the Next day I called to ask if I can get an Itemized list of how they came up with that number, after some back and forth and about a week of waiting I received a report from AAFES with a TWS title page, it showed I only owed $4,776.40 and that it was paid in full and ZERO reason why it got to over $10,000.00 due. It did say "the provided information does not include interest, penalties or other applicable fees that have or will accrue on this debt." All the information I needed to know. So now I have to find out what they are hiding and if I have to seek legal guidance because if they won't be open about what and how they charge it is probably illegal.

I work in Quality Assurance. This is a scam. Please do not give them any information. They are trying to get your money and/or personal information. They called me 4 times in one day. One number was an 800 number, the next was a private number, the third was a local number to look like it is from my area, and the last was a SCAM LIKELY caller ID from T-Mobile. Please be diligent with your personal information. When I called the SCAM LIKELY number and the 800 number, they all came back to the same company. The other two lines were "busy" every time I tried. They weren't consistent in saying all calls are recorded. I even had to ask why they only told me one of the two calls was being recorded and why it was being recorded as they did not say.
I know the game they are playing! Stay away. I hope this review helps someone NOT give out their personal information to just anyone who calls or to at least think twice before you act on it. You should never provide your personal information to just anyone calling you, even if they say you owe something or have a collection. Follow your gut... It's always right!! Protect yourself and what matters. It can take a lifetime to build what you have and only one person with the wrong intentions to ruin it all! Stay safe.

I received a Disability Severance pay from the military that was taxed. I spent some time in and out of physical therapy rehabilitation. During this time I fell behind in payments of my Star Card. When I called Star Card to pay a balance about $2000 and was informed that my account was transferred to TRANSWORLD SYSTEMS INC. I was informed by Transworld Systems Inc. that interest and fees had caused my balance had more than tripled. This company wanted me to pay almost $12,000. I begged both companies to forgive some of them with no success. I agreed to pay a fee debited out of my bank account each month.
Fast forward... I filed a Saint Clair Claim with the IRS to get refunded my Disability Severance pay money that the IRS took out for taxes. Unfortunately, I received a letter in the mail stating that Transworld Systems Inc. had taken my entire Disability Severance refund. Neither of these companies gave me the opportunity to re-negotiate a fair settlement for the interest. I’m behind in mortgage and was planning to clean my credit up with the refund money.

These people will harass you and call your phone every day but will not tell you anything if asked to validate your debt. If you try to contact them by email they will not help you in any way. I asked them to verify my debt several times and they refused to do so. I supposedly owed a 20 dollar debt which they added 160.00 in a late fee and harassed me over it. I still do not see how it is legal at all in this country to charge 2000% interest on something. How do they get 160 dollars in late fees on 20 dollars they only informed me about after they added this fee? Now I am going to try to get these scammers into a small claims court I suppose. This is just ridiculous. I see a LOT of complaints online with similar stories on this garbage company and the ignorant people that it employs.
