NCO Financial Systems Informative - Why would they ask for my S.S# ?
ARIZONA -- I had a mere $322.00 bill to pay which isn't my issue; I intend to pay what I owe. My issue is that this particular lady was insistent about my personal information such as my Account Number, Routing Number and Social Security Number when I was informed that I can settle the account by paying a lump sum of $209.30 with a five dollar charge but I can only do that over the phone because it’s expired last month of January and if I mail mailed the check it would have to be for the full balance. Now I’m wondering what’s the difference is paying a bill by mail vs. the phone. If the lump sum is expired, shouldn’t I pay the full balance vs. the shady request over the phone involving delicate info?
I asked if I could send a Money Order vs. a personal check and they got slightly annoyed with me.
Well, I plan on sending a check of $209.30 for the lump sum anyways via snail mail just to see what happens. I know that if they REFUSE any form of payment ranging from $5 a month to just the lump sum of $209.30 vs. the $322.00 full balance, the contract will become void and I don’t have to pay a dime.
