Bronstein Schultz and Peterson / No return call and cannot send receipts of payment received and Threatening voicemails and messages
I also received a call from Bronstein Shultz & Peterson about 3-4 weeks ago from a Gentlement Named Mr. B. Johnson. The original info that he had for me was not correct (phone number/ etc) It was for a payday loan from about 1 1/2 - 2 years ago. He could not contact me but he got in contact with my brother that he says was listed and asked if he could get in contact with me and that a warrant was going to be put out for my arrest on the next day if I could not be contacted.
I got the message and immediately called back. I spoke to Mr. Johnson and he told me that the loan had high finance charges and that it came up to 2000 and some odd dollars. I told him that I could not afford to pay that and he asked me what I could afford on a monthly basis. I told him and he said let him check with his "boss". he put me on hold for about 1 minute and came back with a number a tad bit higher than that. I agreed (unfortunately). He got my information (debit card) and the first payment came out of my account on my next payday. I never received anything in writing (receipt) or any paperwork showing the agreement. I stopped payment on the next transaction scheduled for 11/30 and contacted Mr. Johnson and left a message. I received a return cal via my voicemail stating that he would fax the paperwork over to me and that he would have to give me some type of "money code" to see my receipt. I do not have access to a fax machine for personal faxes. I left another message stating just that and that I need it to be mailed to my address that I have on file with them before I release the money for the next transaction.
I received another message stating that he had tried to contact me on several times to send over the paperwork but he received no response (I left him two voicemails - one that he responded to) so he would have to sign the "deposition in warrant" unless I called him back by 5PM EDT (He is located in IN) or he would not be in the office and this was yesterday on 12/2/10
It is very strange to me that even though he was leaving the office there was no one else I could talk to and also why I never received an agreement via the mail. Does this seem kind of strange and should I be worried about the warrant and should I contact the authorities about this?
