This company called my number for my husband and said they were taking him to court over a 250$ loan back in 2014 that we knew nothing about. They just kept saying he owes the debt and he needs to pay or we will have a lawsuit! This is a violation and they need to be held responsible! We know nothing of the debt! There has been no letter or anything but we are going to court! They are liars and need to be dealt with and shut down!!
This company is horrible. They have no type of respect. Extremely rude and harass the hell out of everybody and anybody you know. Cease and desist letters have been sent to them that have also been told to stop calling me and they refuse to. I now have an attorney to pursue a lawsuit against them. If you decide to do the same be sure to keep all correspondence they send you and print out a call log with all the calls from them that will guarantee they stopped calling and harassing.
You'd think a collection company would want payment or the debt resolved. I have to call them daily to ensure the proper service is being rendered so they can accept payment from a loan consolidation. The agent handling my account is rarely at her desk and doesnt return voicemails. I ask to speak to another representative and I'm put on hold for twenty minutes or hung up on. I'm trying to go back to school and this company is delaying the process. Terrible service.
I had an agreement with this agency to settle a debt. I was informed that day that I was out of debt and was going to be placed back with the proper reporting agency. However, instead they reported me to the government and ended up taking my tax return. When I called back to ask why the agent was very unprofessional, arguing with me and stating he never told me that. They are horrible. I explained my situation to him and he still didn’t care. I had 15 days to come in agreement and make my first payment, however they took my tax return a week after talking to them. I hope the company burns to the ground for the fraud they create.
This company harassed not only I but my mother, sister, boyfriend and even called my work to try to speak to my boss. They told me they would try to get me fired, blacklisted from getting future jobs and so on. They lied to everyone they called and told them they were a different person. I paid the debt to get them to stop calling even though I couldn't afford to because my husband passed away 6 months before this. They also told me when I complained about a specific agent that she would get fired. That did not happen. They are liars. Don't believe a word they say.

Last night at 8:45pm I received a phone call from them where they left a message that I couldn't understand! So I call them back this morning and spoke to Rebecca **. Started out ok, then she ended up hanging up! She explained to me I owe a payday loan taken out in 2011 for $400, which now is $1240 due. I asked what company is this from, an account number and a phone number for them, said can't help there. They are mediating this AND IF I DON'T PAY I'M GOING TO COURT! I need to pay now or I will have legal problems! Wanted me to pay $250 + $10 fee service now and give them my credit/debit card info so they can start services.
When I explained I don't give info out unless I have info in my hand and investigate things because I have not received any info before. Told her I'm on hardship/disability and she said well I need to pay or else! Then I asked for her company info and her name, she gave it finally and then hung up on me!!! Is this a scam? Is this legal? NOT RIGHT AT ALL WHEN AT LEAST I WAS CALM AND ASKING HONEST QUESTIONS FOR MY INFO AND PEACE OF MIND BUT GOT NOWHERE!
I have been receiving calls from this company that will not stop and they are looking for someone that has a similar last name as mine. After some research I found that that person lives in Arizona while I live in New Jersey. I gave them that information, but they still keep calling letting the phone ring two or three times, hanging up and then calling back. They do this a few times a day. The law should allow it to make it very easy to file harassment charges to companies like this!
United Recovery Systems called my father looking for me. My father has nothing to do with any debt. I called URS back, was VERY polite, explained that I am not disputing the debt, I simply was requesting that they send me notification of it in writing as I had not received anything. They refused to legitimize any of what they were telling me. When I asked if they had a website I could look at to verify that the company was on the up and up I was told the website was down so they couldn't give me the web address. Absolutely every question I asked was sidestepped and unanswered. This company is collecting on debt that they refuse to legitimize. If I owe the debt I am happy to pay it but they will not give me any information and are now threatening legal action.
I received a call this morning from my sister. It appears that United Recovery Systems is now calling my 89 year old Mother who has progressive senile dementia about a debt that I owe to Fifth Third Bank. My Mother has nothing whatsoever to do with any of my debt; her name does not appear on this credit card or any other credit card that I have. I am in a health crisis right now dealing with severe lung and heart diseases which has caused great hardship to me financially. I have no other income into my home but my own, and with my medical costs skyrocketing, I had to make a choice -- pay credit cards and go without medical care, or get the critical medical care that I need -- there was no choice to make -- my health comes first.
I was shocked to find out that they called my Mother and asked her if she was Janet ** to which my Mother responded "yes," and proceeded to ask her if she had a daughter by the name of "Barbara **" to which she responded "yes." My Mother is not my keeper, and this company had better cease and desist from further harassment of my Mother, Janet **, about a debt that she has nothing to do with, or I will file a lawsuit against them; in fact, I may now call an attorney as this United Recovery has over-stepped their bounds in the collection of a debt. It appears that this company is notorious for doing this, per reviews I have read.
There is no other name connected with my Fifth Third Bank credit card but mine, Barbara **; not Janet **. If any other member of my family is contacted with the name of **; ie my Brother for instance this company will be toast. How dare them contact family members who are not listed as users, etc. of this account!! There needs to be a stop put to these types of fraudulent business practices!! United Recovery has been calling my house several times a day, but I have not been able to address this issue due to my critical health problems; but this does not give them a right to start to contact innocent family members. I do not have an order number, as I have not received any letters from them, only phone calls!!
It is tiring the phone calls over a debt that is closed. We traded in a lease vehicle months early because we needed a bigger vehicle to carry a motorized wheelchair. A work injury forced me to retire at 37 and after too many operations I can't walk much anymore. We paid what the car company what they quoted was owed. One year later this company starts calling saying I owed all these misc. charges. I was threatened with a court case and notifying credit companies. They asked for all this information on 1st call which I wouldn't give. They wouldn't tell me who and what they wanted without it. They hung up.
I checked my State and Federal laws on collection and the internet on rights and dealing with them. If you make any attempt to pay debt with them you lose certain rights. Check the Laws. The constant attack to get you to agree to pay something with them, even changing the price you owe. They kept calling all hours every phone possible.
I told them I'm on Social Security and can barely live now, that "I can't tell you if I can send you even $5 dollars." Plus I'm contested that I owed anything. On my Credit History it says the car has been paid off and account is closed. Still they called because they have nothing to do with that. After the constant barrage of calls and threats of Court action I told them "Let's go." In my State, Social Security can't be touched by them.
The thing is they make money by getting people to pay disputable debts. They have a host of threats and tricks to get you to agree and pay something. The minute you agree or pay a $1 you admitted to owing the money. Search for YOUR RIGHTS and what the COLLECTIONS Agencies CAN and CAN'T DO!! Good luck.
