I had a bill in collections from GC Services Limited Partnership. I paid this bill November 11,2006. It is now March 13, 2007 and my payment was never sent to the original biller, they claim they never received my money. I have a confirmation number and a bank statement showing the payment made, and they still insist payment was not made,and would not make any effort to correct the problem. Due to GC Services Limited Partnership mistake my credit report has a dent in it that they refuse to fix. They fought with me about the payment made, screamed and cursed at me and kept hanging up the phone. They would not let me speak to a supervisor or another employee. Instead GC Services Limited Partnership would put me on speaker phone and talk slanderously. My money has been stolen and is still floating around in there pocket. There is no correcting this because they will not answer the phone or let someone else know the situation so it can be correct. GC Services Limited Partnership are thieves!

I have been being harassed by GC services. They are the rudest unprofessional group of individuals I have ever had to deal with. They won't let you speak with supervisors. They have cursed me out, laughed in my face and left rude messages on my voicemail. And the kicker is that they are looking for someone whom I don't know and have told them that it is the wrong number. I will be filing a complaint with the better business bureau.

Got a call from (GC Services Limited Partnership) these thieves and the caller identified herself as Tina and then asked my name. I asked her who she was calling from, the company and she became very rude and began rattling off an address seeking for me to verify. When I insisted on her company's identity she hung up. Fortunately for caller ID I had their number and Googled it and found this collection agency and the many comments about their practices. Don't be fooled and identify yourself or confirm your identity that is their tactic. I did not confirm my address. I then tried to call their number 713-771-1450 and it was busy. By way of Google the phone number came up to a BBB web site showing that was one of their many numbers. I called the main number and asked for a Tina and was told the company was very large and it was impossible to find this Tina. I did not want to give my name as I would only be harassed by these people. I don't have any unpaid debts so I know this is not correct and wonder why these people are bothering me. Just be aware that is why I'm posting this. PM

Great. I am really nervous now. I have arranged payment with this company for an old cell phone account.
I received a bill just recently from the cell phone carrier for the full amount, but, I assumed it was printed before my first of 2 payments posted. I will contact the cell carrier and verify they've received notification of the payment. The second payment is due to post tomorrow. I hope I can get to the bottom of this ASAP so I can put a stop-payment on the electronic check if necessary.

I work too hard for my money to have it taken and still be liable with the original company!

GC Services is the most incompetent, unprofessional so called "agency" I have ever seen !! I received a call from them on a Saturday morning regarding an old student loan that I have had to put on the back burner for a long time. I did not dispute the account, and was very willing to cooperate and set up a rehabilitation program. I gave this "collection agency" all of my info, and complied diligently with their every request as far as faxing their forms to them to set up the program with payment arrangements. I allowed them to do automatic debits from my checking account, beginning with a $300 down payment, and another $100 as my first payment. They continue to call me constantly wanting me to fax and re-fax the same information that I have already faxed to them more than once. I refuse to cooperate with them any longer. I now need to contact the original creditor to make sure they have received my down payment and first payment. I am going to close that checking account, as it was only a 2nd account used for them only, to begin with. (Thank God I did not give them my main account information.) If I can reach a payment agreement with the original creditors, I will be more than happy to arrange a payment plan with them, but GC Services will not receive another dime from me willfully.

GC services is trying to collect money on an account that has been payed on by Care One Credit counseling services . They have been rude and not provided me with any documentation that the account has not been payed on even though I have documentation that it has been payed on. They tried to take money out of my account even though I told them I was questioning the debt and needed proof of authenticity.

I received a bill for $3244.00 from gc services with my daughters address on it. This bill is not mine and when I tried to contact them, I found no phone number included with this bill. this is a very poor way to do business, if this is a legitimate company. I only found where the federal trade commission can be contacted. I will be contacting them along with the better business bureau. This bill is in regards to sprint pcs. I have never had an account with sprint. This is fraud. Consumer protection agency is another contact department. I now know why I am having difficulty purchasing a vehicle. Transunion and experian and equifax will be contacted. Buyer beware.

GC Services - Took premium, but coverage ended the day before premium was taken
United States

I worked for gc services, from november 2006 until june 8 2007 a premium of 74.00 was taken out of my paycheck on june 8, the script company advised me my coverage terminated june 7. How is it that you charged me fr a premium after coverage ended?? This is certainly unfair, not to mention probably illegal. Each paycheck reflects a premium of 74.00 being taken... So basically gc services took money after they had already canceled my benefits. I will contact attorney general office about this matter. This is simply just another one of many reasons i no longer work for company. For GC to be the largest privately owned collection company. It seems to me they F**K their employees over and over again Which is why turn over there is extremely high and will not get any better. Dishonest, Untrustworthy, Deceitful, Unlawfully, are just a few words to describe Gc services Quitting was the best decision i ever made... I will look into matter further!

Let's not forget who failed to pay their bill on time in the first place... let's not forget who went 90+ days without paying their card... you debtors think your such innocent victims but if you'd simply pay your bill then you wouldn't be in this situation, would you? And most of these posts are embellished for dramatic purposes. There is absolutely no cursing or threatening or anything like that. The calls are monitored by the client (the creditor you actually owe) and if they are not satisfied with the service or find gross negligence and failure to apply the FDCPA... they will end the contract with GC Services. Be honest guys...

GC Services - Rude and obnoxious people
United States

GC Services is after my husband for $$$... First let me say, these people gave him a credit card when he was only 17!! He is now 28!! These a#**holes call all hours of the day and night, seven day's a week. We have 3 children and they often get woken up by these IDIOTS. I tell you, if I could have got through the phone to the last woman that called, well, lets just say, she would not be able to make any more calls!! They have also called some more family members with the same last name as ours, which I find total BS, If they want to talk to a person, don't call were you know they are not.

G&C services are not above representing themselves as Federal or State investigators. Recently I got a call from them seeking my eldest daughter, the man told me he was a Federal agent investigating my daughter, then he worked for the State of Missouri as an investigator. When I pressed him for his supervisors name and number he threatened to call the leasing manager in they complex I live in until I told him we owned our townhouse, at that point he started swearing at me and I hung up... These people are ###!!!

Premiums go to the insurance company, not GC Services.

Lol, what a bunch of baloney you creditors cook up... I guarantee 99% of what you guys wrote was exaggerated for dramatic effect. Any payment you make goes right to the original creditor, GC Services does not touch it, it is not "sloshing around" GC Services. You know what the BBB and the FTC are not going to do a thing because everything GC does is according to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and all calls are monitored to make sure the rules are followed. And like in the one comment up there... if it is a fraud case or something like that it is YOUR responsibility to file a police report and find out what happened. As well collections agencies have to verify personal information so they know they are speaking with the right person... they are not trying to scam you.

GC Services - Multiple harassing phone calls
United States

I just received a call from GC Services. The man asked me go to a neighbors house to leave his (GC's) telephone number on her door. It was an odd call because the first question he asked me was, "Is your neighbor home now?" I called the number back about an hour later and a girl answered. There was a lot of loud music and laughter in the background. I had never heard of GC Services before and wondered if the call was legit or if someone was casing her home. I was about to call the police, but thought to Google GC Services.

I am relieved to find that it is just a collection company and furious that they would contact me to do their job. If they continue to contact me I will contact the police for harassment. They need to do their own work and not bother other people to do it for them.

It is called skiptracing. Collection agencies are governed by the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practice Act). They are allowed to contact a neighbor to obtain location information on someone. If you don't want them to contact you anymore, I would suggest you call in & simply ask for them not to. They probably left some sort of number(other then telephone #) with you to identify the info they are seeking. Out of curiosity did you give the message to your neighbor? Maybe you should, after all, if someone went to the extent of calling YOUR neighbor to get in contact with you, wouldn't you want to know?

I have worked with GC to set up a loan rehabilitation program for a student loan I had ignored for a while. They were 100% courteous, informative, and even let me check their credentials. I discovered that they are indeed an authorized collection agency for Federal Student Loans. I have had no problems with them, and frankly, they have been the most pleasant creditors I have worked with to date. Maybe its just a "Your Mileage May Vary" situation...

That's right, GC Services will help those who want to be helped. It is those of you looking for an easy way out or some kind of hand out that get treated like credit criminals. Kudos to you David on resolving your student loan debt. Everyone in our country counts on federal money, from future students, to our brothers & sisters dying in Iraq. Do the right thing, pay back your debt!

GC Services - Wrong guy targeted!
United States

I received a letter from this company. It was addressed to my name, but the wrong middle initial. They stated in the letter I was to send them a payment of 350.00 or my wages would be garnished, attach bank accounts, and attach liens. It was supposedly from a court in California, LA county. I reside in CT and have only been to CA once, to visit a relative in 2001. My wife called to inquire, and was asked all kinds of personal info such as drivers license number, date of birth, etc. They finally figured out I was not the intended target and their policy is to send out threatening letters to anyone whose name is even remotely close. Do not fall for their offensive schemes, you never know who you are really speaking to and can cause you many head aches down the road involving identity theft.

Oh bull!! Then why is GC services harassing people who don't even OWE the debt! I have contacted them several times telling them to stop calling my phone number. I'm not the person who owes the debt but they keep calling. Now they are calling my neighbors! If you want to collect then collect but don't harass innocent people who have nothing to do with it. And quit defending your ignorant actions too. If you guys play by the rules then why are there so many complaints for YOUR company? Maybe because you ARE crossing the line and breaking laws? I think so.

I have an overdue accout with sprint pcs also. However, its not for the amount that GC says I owe. I had recieved 2 letters sayin my account was delinquent so i made a payment over the phone (which i NEVER EVER do becuase of past unautorize payments taken out of my bank account). But, i did it anyway. Now i'm sittin here balancing my checkbook and on my summary online, there is no payment taken out of my account from GC. But yet it says my collected amt and my available, the available is the EXACT amount that gC took out. I'm now worried that i just gave a fraud company my information. AHH!! What do i do? I have asked for my account to be turned back over to the original debtor by they refuse to do so... someone help me?? Email me or something with some advice!!!!
