i received a phone call the other day. someone looking to find a neighbour. they were anxious to find her.. a personal call they said. i thought it was odd but i said ok, i will take the message. after they gave me the phone number (an 800 number..first clue) i asked if they were a collection agency. she said yes. well..... i told her off. how dare they interrupt me at home to try to collect a debt for someone who lived a few doors away from me. how underhanded that was.
i have received a couple of phone calls from those agencies that hound people for their debts.. not my debts, i have none, but for those that have the same last name as mine. i usually ignore them until they have called more than oh say 7 times leaving messages on my machine. i have called them back letting them know i am not related to that person, usually with attitude, threatening lawyer action.
this latest tactic from collection agencies is despicable. i don't care what my neighbours owe and i don't want to know. the name of the agency is listed below and i will be sending them a snail mail telling them that their tactics are entirely unacceptable
