CTI Collections — Illegal Collections on a Paid Debt
This ridiculous excuse of a collection agency has been violating my privacy since May 2011. They have been calling my home, my work and my neighbors, telling every one they speak with that I owe money on my student which was paid in 2006. Suddenly, CTI began contacting me at my home and my work demanding payment for this debt. I have sent them 4 letters requesting they show proof of the debt as well as cease any further calls and restrict all contact to written correspondence. They have refused to do so and are still calling my home, my work and now, they are calling my neighbors requesting my personal information. I have given them the number for my lawyer on 4 occasions, as has my father. They have refused to contact the lawyer dealing with their repeated harassment. They are asking my neighbors to confirm my address, asking them how much I make, how often I am home and other very personal information. They have also advised my neighbors that I am in debt and need to pay my bills.
They refuse to show proof of the debt. they sent my SSN to an address in Buffalo that I have never lived at. They have told my co-workers and neighbors I owe money on my student loans (they aren't allowed to tell any one anything, let alone contact people other than me to begin with!!!). This debt was PAID!!! I have told them that, and the Fed Dept. of Edu has no clue who this company is and has stated they do not use this company for student loan collections! They are utilizing illegal collections tactics and the public needs to be warned!!! Should you get a collections call from them, contact the BBB and Complaints Board ASAP! Also, if any one would like, I am open to joining a class action suit against them, however, I do have a lawyer currently working on this. A lawyer that CTI refuses to contact!!!
