Global Vantedge / Money scam!

Several family members of my husband and I got harassing phone calls this morning stating we had a legal matter and they needed to find us - upsetting the whole family. I called "Clark Steel" who had a thick Indian accent who advised me my husband owed a credit card company over $1300. I got his number to call him back. I called the credit card company who had no record of either my husband or myself ever holding one of their cards. We owed the credit card company nothing. When I called back "Clark Steel" (sounds like a bad porn star) he got nasty with me telling me how messed up my credit will be, etc. and so on and that I needed to pay them the money. This company is a call center of scam artists from India with a location in California as well. Don't fall for their scam.

    Global Vantedge - Harassment after making settlement payment per letter
    United States

    I'm helping a gentleman who happens to be in Iraq serving take care of an issue with a Sears credit card. Most of the charges on the card are interest and overage charges. This person was sent a letter accepting that I was only going to authorize for a specific amount of payment because that was all that could possibly be charges made while he was here and not overseas. He received a letter accepting the amount and stating "acceptance by Global Vantedge Inc. $..... as a settlement of your account...." They received a cashiers check for the amount of the settlement and it was accepted and cashed. Now I found out they have some how tracked down his mother and an uncle (totally different last names and addresses) and have called them to harrass for the difference on the account. This is not acceptable practice and they should not be allowed to continue. The boy has not been in the country for almost 2 years, the card was canceled before he left for Iraq and Sears has continued to put charges on the card even after he notified them of his deployment. I can't believe that a company is allowed to send letters of settlement and not settle and classify the matters as settled.

    We have had the same problem with Global Vantedge-very rude and relentless, even after telling them the person who they are tring to reach does not live here any longer.

    I do agree that they are initially relentless, however after breifly discussing the matter that they called about (an American Express account) they weren't too bad.
    I called Amex to verify the matter and they assured me Global Vantedge were legit.
    I did a check through Gov agencies and their legitimacy was verified.
    Sorted out the Amex account and haven't heard from them since.

    I hold an account with MBNA for which Global Vantedge collect the payments by DD, however, they missed a payment of £6 for whatever reason and now keep calling me arrange collection of this payment.I have informed them that the number that they hold for me is not my home number it is my work number and can they please remove it from their system. (I made the mistake of calling them from the number once!) ..They have not removed it and continue to call me on my works number badgering me for the £6 .. I have explained that I don't have a way of paying the £6 as I have no debit/credit card and if they sent me a slip to pay it at the PO/bank i would do so..But please remove the works number..But no avail!
