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!!!

    I just received numerous phone calls from this fraudulent company. They are a disgrace to the field of collections. You are more than welcomed to contact me as well ..I would like to join and partake in the legal proceedings with you. You can contact me via [email protected]

    That is illegal. If you send them a cease and desist letter they will have to stop. They cannot contact anyone except to obtain your address and phone number if you have one. The people they contact do not have to give them this information. They are not allowed to tell people that you owe a debt. Make a former complaint to the Federal Trade Commision Consumer Complaints and let them take this to court for you.
