For six years, I have been getting phone calls from this company. They are trying to locate someone my husband used to know. We do not know where she lives, we do not know her phone number, we haven't seen her for years. We keep telling GC Services this, but the phone calls continue. If what this company does isn't illegal, IT SHOULD BE!!!
What really pisses me off is neither I nor my husband have EVER defaulted on a loan, but we are getting HARASSED because of SOMEONE ELSE'S DEBT. I have told them not to call us again, my husband has told them not to call. They call at 8:15 in the morning, usually long after we've left for work or while we're sleeping on the weekends. Then they call later in the day. Since we have caller id, we recognize the number, and it makes our blood boil when we see it.
My phone company does have a service to block calls, and it's $3 a month. I am actually thinking about signing up. Maybe I can send GC Services the bill for that, as they HAVEN'T listened to me when I have told them not to call. That's right, GC Services--you owe ME money!!! Now maybe I can call all your former friends and neighbors and harass you for the $3 a month you owe me for making me need this phone service!!! I can't utilize the "block anonymous calls" features of my phone because the caller id says "Operations Division." Too bad, since that service is free.
I found it very amusing to see employees of GC Services defending their job on this site. Have they not read the complaints? Most of the people complaining are third party individuals--neighbors, relatives, "friends." Perhaps those employees wouldn't mind 50 phone calls inquiring as to the whereabouts of their "friend" from elementary school, or their neighbor they hardly know, or their deadbeat relative.
In Feb 2008, I became employed and knowing I had a pending citation I tried to notify the courts, upon doing...
I just talked with a lady today from GC Services named Geri. She was very rude. I was constantly mocked and tried to tell her that they are not the only people that I have to pay. I pay other bills and even told her that I am a teacher. When she heard that, she sarcastically replied, "That is unbelievable!" Then she asked what grade I teach and I told her fifth grade and she replied, "Now I can see why this country is going to pot." This is not my only time. These people are rude. They need to be investigated and put out of business. They are a disgusting bunch of people. It is good to see that others are speaking out against them. I. like many others, are doing the best that they can to make a living while these people sit in a cubicle and mock people. They need to get real jobs. Their lives must be pathetic if they have to do this for a living. They are a sad group of people to deal with.
I am an attorney who has handled more than a hundred cases referred from traffic courts to the collection...
Some are very unprofessional at GC and are liars. I paid d of my debt as agreed on 1 MAR 08 and have been requesting a letter of release since 10 APR 08. I finally asked them to fax me the letter and I still have not received the fax or the mailed copy from them. I spoke with several employees but mainly deal with one person in attempts to get my letter. After awhile they became very rude and stated they would not help me. I then asked to speak with a supervisor and instead I had employees pretending as if they were. I realized by speaking to a customer representative the person I had been speaking with was a supervisor and the employee was pretending as though she was. The employee was extremely rude and obnoxious. She hung up the phone several times and said I was harassing them and not to call the number anymore as though I was calling her home. I finally spoke with who I assume was a supervisor and still did not receive appropriate service from GC. I was told to wait for the letter to come in the mail and she had a conference to attend. I have to agree with those that have had a negative experience with G C Services. GC is not a very professional company and if you could use another company to conduct your business I suggest you do.
I have been repeated ly harassed by GC Services. I have been harassed at work, at home, an my family an friends have been harassed.
I was threated at work with garnishment of wage without court order.
I set up payment arrangements an was told the payment would come out of my account on a certain date, but instead came out much earlier causing over draft bank fees.
I have also been threatened with personal property being seized.
After i had set up payments an the first payment was made friends an family started being harassed again regarding the debt that was already being paid.
The first time i was contacted by GC services the collector was verbally abusive. I told them not to call back again an yet i still receive constant calls.
GC Services Limited Partnership. They call several times a day. When I did make arrangements, with them and could not stick to them. I called to ask if i could make a lower payment and was told no. that they would cancel future payment arrangements and sue me. That was Mr Watts and today is April 12 2008. I told him I would just call back and speak to his manager, Mr Watts turned out to be the manager and told me He is going to sue me and "DO NOT CALL BACK" SO i AM HERE COMPLAINING ABOUT IT.
GC Services constantly call me over a student loan that was dismissed because the school closed before I...
I got behind on my student loan. I lost their info and could not get in touch with them. Student loan wa...
HARASSING PHONE CALLS and the woman is rude looking FOR MY BROTHER WHO HAS NEVER LIVED WITH ME AND HIS LOCATION IS UNKNOWN.
GC Services was mistakenly given a telephone bill from ATT which we had paid at termination of services. We contacted ATT and GC about the matter and were assured it was resolved. They even wrote us a letter about it. We thought the problem had been resolved until now almost 10 years later we find the bill still shows in our credit report. I can't believe the incompetency of this company. I don't know what to do about it because now they won't answer my calls, they don't correct their mistake. I would pay it again if they would actually do something, but I believe that they care not about their reputation. Collections agencies serve a good purpose, but this moves GC Service from Good to Very Poor. I just can't believe their lack of good faith.
I work for GC Services. I know many of you get annoyed at us but we are all not rude or have poor busine...
This company is a very bad services company I gave them my checking account number so that they can take money out of my account and instead of taking 100.00 they took 200.00 and know I am trying to get in contact with them to let them know and I have spoken to who they say is the manager his name is Mike Swayne and he told me he would contact me in 10 min and he never did and then I received a threatening phone call form another agent who told me that I am going to go to jail if I do not pay the fine. They are very rude and I was intimidated because of this company.
I left a major corporation 7 months ago in good standing. What I did not realize and what I have learned is that did not pay their corporate credit card bills on time leaving the employee liable even after everything was submitted approved and closed out. Only to have GC services office out of St. Louis office harass falsely accuse and have to be called by the credit card company to say do not call this person again since the she has had the ex company pay the bill with only a charge left which was done two months after the departure. GC services was not only unprofessional they chose to hang the phone up on this person, falsely accuse and act out in such a manner I now know why you read such negative things about this company and the people who work for them. It is a shame Corporate America has such unprofessional people representing them without knowledge of what and why they are suppose to be calling this person for and to be falsely accused is not acceptable. I know this much I was not raised in such a low down slime way of doing business. I can promise those who read this I will continue my letter writing to let others know what a disgrace it is to have such a low disgraceful society of people who get paid to harass innocent people. I find it really interesting that the credit card company made the call to GC services an requested them not to call me again.
I'm writing in today with more than a complaint -- I'm offering some knowledge, for everyone's benefit. These GC Services people started calling me a few months ago. I don't know why, and they won't tell me. They just keep asking for some person that isn't me, and I keep telling them "that's not me" / "go away" / "leave me alone" / "stop harassing me" / "I can't help you" / etc.
They often have their computers call me and hang up. I think it's just rudeness. (Why do they even want to bother me?!) When there's a person on the phone, they start out asking if I'm [that wrong person], and even though I tell them "no" / "sorry, I don't know that person", they keep trying to dig further into *my* identity, and my supposed relationship with this person (who, for all I know, does not even exist!) while refusing to identify themselves. That has been the pattern for the last few months, several calls a week.
Today it got incredibly worse. EVERY FEW MINUTES, their harassment machine calls me, but nobody's there, and it doesn't leave a message. Only 1 of 30+ phone calls had a person on the other end... I gave the poor guy a slightly-more-frustrated version of what I always tell them, and he hung up. I say "poor guy" because he probably is 99% clueless about how unlawful and illegal those practices are. He probably hates his sucky job and is going to quit within the next few weeks, hoping to upgrade to a grocery sacker position.
The real culprit -- the one responsible for these offenses against Me -- is the President/CEO of the corporation. In this case, it's a guy named Frank Taylor. (See the Secretary of State, and/or BBB, and/or D&B.) Legally speaking, the President/CEO *is* the company. Legally speaking, Mr. Taylor is personally responsible (and can be held personally liable) for any/all actions "his" company takes, and that includes actions which damage/harm Me.
Legally speaking, any company who harasses you can be stopped dead in their tracks by hitting them where it counts: file a CLAIM against the President/CEO. Don't bother with any other people, no matter how high-ranking their titles sound. Don't bother with any so-called supervisory organizations. Don't bother with the expense and hassle of a lawsuit. Just file a CLAIM.
If you send written notification via registered mail, three (3) times, thirty (30) days apart, then you file a "UCC LIEN" against the guy, personally. He will then be unable to sell any of his boats/cars/houses/anything until he handles the lien appropriately, in other words, he has to remedy his wrong against you. Print this out or write it down. It works. I've had about enough of this mistreatment from Mr. GC Services, and he is just about to find out the hard way that his choices do have consequences.
Several days ago, my mother-in-law and father received a call from a company called GC Services asking for me and demanding they tell me to call them. The representative was very rude to both and proceeded to demand they give them my employer's info and my work phone number and other personal information. When they refused to do so, the representative began to threaten them and ask questions like "Don't you ever see your family members?"
Yesterday, my wife received a call from GC Services asking for me. She answered the phone and asked who they were and what they wanted because they blocked the phone number. They refused to tell her who they were other than GC Services and they told it was was concerning an old credit card. When my wife asked what credit card, they refused to say. She told them that without any of this information, she wouldn't be able to help them. The representative proceeded to tell her they would take our house and everything we owned unless we paid them.
She received a call from them again today, and she told them I was at work. They asked for my work phone number, along with my supervisor's name and number. She refused to give them any information because I can't receive personal calls at work. The rep then told her he would mark the account as a refusal to pay and proceed to sue us.
We are in the process of filing further complaints with the FTC and the Illinois Attorney General's office. I will be contacting a lawyer shortly.
This people are rude and they yell at me when all i am trying to do is pay a bill that should be making them happy. I know i have to pay and that is what i am doing but anyways moneygram deposit my money in to the wrong account # and they said they could pull it back if the money was still in moneygram but since gcservices had the money all moneygram could do was send them an e-mail and have accounting pull it back and place it in the right account # but gc services say's that they have not got an e-mail and they both had me like this for a week. So now i am so upset all i do is cry because i work hard for my money and i am sure everyone does. Today i called moneygram and gcservices on three way and i spoke to miss burn's again because i always speak with her and moneygram told her that they had send an e-mail and that she needed to take that to accounting department and she said very rude that she knew this and then she told me that she would call me back today and not to call her and then i said: well you tell me that you are always going to call me but you never do and she yelled at me and said I WILL CALL YOU!!! This place is so rude i was the owner i would be embarrassed of my company this place really needs to start monitoring there calls and listen to the type of csr that they got and they should fire EVERYONE IN OKLAHOMA AT GCSERVICES, THEY ARE HORRIBLE PEOPLE!!!
On Sunday I received a call on my answering machine. A woman with very poor English speaking skills left her name and number asking I return her call. The first name she used was not correct, nor did she have my middle initial correct, but she did have my last name right. I thought the mistake might lie with her inability to speak English correctly. On Tuesday I returned the call. My call was answered, using their normal greeting stating company name. When I asked again who they were, they repeated the company name. I asked again who they were, who they work for and I was told that "they work for many companies." I explained the call I received. I was then asked my last name, which I gave. She then gave me a first name and I replied, No mam. She then asked if I was a Sprint customer, I replied yes mam. She then gave an address and a town and I said no mam. She then asked for my social security number and I promptly told her that I don't give that number out over the phone. Your employee then got nasty with me and said they already have it! I then told her that if they have it then she could tell me what it was! Very quickly I was told someone would have to call me back! and I was promptly hung up on. I then called Sprint to try and find out what this call was all about. I gave them the phone number and they called. After talking to "Stephanie" she said that they had transposed the number they were trying to reach and got me instead. She had told her that they should at least admit the error and apologize for the mistake. The person on the other end was even nasty to her, which she admitted to me. This is "old school collections"!!! Do you really think that by being nasty with your job at hand makes "the collection any easier". Compound this by a person that is barely understandable over the phone, and you now have an angry customer that is probably less willing to pay what they owe! I consider this harassment! Any further calls from GC Services to me will be considered harassment and my attorney will be contacting YOU!!!
These people are the lowest of low. Paid one citation via their WWW site. Used a credit card (which they...
GC Services received my name and number as a reference from Robert Castillo on a Student Loan made in 2003. I have lost contact with this individual, moved to another City where my name and number are unlisted and I've gotten married therefor changing my last name. GC Services called my Husband AT WORK! I don't see how they were able to get my husband's name and work number from the application filled out by Robert Castillo because I did not even know my Husband when Robert listed me as reference. Jason Folley, the GC Services Representative claims that this was the information listed on the application but he doesn't even have access to the application. How can GC Services call my Husband at work when he doesn't even know Robert Castillo.
