I received a bill for $150.00 and called to see if I could pay $50.00 until paid off. I was told no. I asked why and they said because the amount was owed in full and if I didn't pay it in full they would contact my employer to let them know. I explained I was willing to pay $50.00 for 4 months and was told, "if you so send us a check for $50.00 we will tear it like we never received it". The collecter then hung up on me. I called back the following day and the lady who stated she was "The supervisor" laughed when I asked her if they would really tear my check if I sent it for $50.00 and said, "Yup we will". I couldn't believe it. When I asked for her supervisor's name, she said "I don't have one. I'm the boss". She was very unprofessional and rude so I didn't believe she was the boss so I asked her for her corporate address. She said, "I'm not going to give you that. Are u kidding me, you think I'm stupid". She then hung up on me. I tried calling her back but she would answer her phone and laugh in the receiver and hang up on me, so I stopped calling. I can't believe they treat people this way. I'm willing to pay for my bill, but I can't pay for all of it. The higher ups need to take a look at what's going on over there. If they aren't receiving payments, its probably because their staff are tearing up the checks.
THIS COMPANY VIOLATES THE FAIR DEBT COLLECTIONS PRACTICES ACT AS A NORMAL BUSINESS PRACTICE. Bob Antenucci will try to bully and intimidate you with "we'll take you to court" and "Employment verifications" that are only obvious to the employer to be a debt collection. When you call the office to try to get to the bottom of this you would see by speaking to different people that these actions are the norm and encouraged. BOB ANTENUCCI AND JR BROTHERS FINANCIAL ARE THE BOTTOM FEEDERS THAT GIVE DEBT COLLECTORS THE NAME THEY HAVE TODAY
Called my employer to verify employment status. I Called back to inform them to STOP calling me or my employer because they were going to get me fired. Atkinson did not care and kept yelling at me about the "debt". I called back to inform person answering phone they can send me the information through the mail, but to stop calling my work and my employer/supervisor.
