NCO Financial Systems Complaint - They are crooks.
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Last Saturday 5/12/07 - I received a bill that was for my father for $6500.00 (after all fees were assessed) that he supposedly made in 2005. The only problem is my father died 7 years ago this May. The original amount was a credit card I am assuming because they won't send me anything information on the account or who originally sent it either. The original bill was for approximately $2,200.00. The bill my father received from NCO was $6500.00. Penalties and all. First, this was the first time any bill was ever sent or we heard of, and (especially since he was dead at the time of the original bill, which I tried explaining that to the very arrigant women, and tell her he did not owe this as he was dead at th time this was made. Besides calling me a liar, which ws pretty much insensitive, The lady (who by the way, talk about a dead beat she was) wouldn't even listen to me. She first tried to hang up on me and I told her she had better not that i needed to get this settled. My husband said it doesn't make anu diffeence he is dead and they wil lnevr get any of the money they billed for but I believe that this wrong and it is the principal of the matter. I was defending my father's good name, since he did pay his bills on time and was a model citizen and no Mr. NCO financial person that was complaining about cry babies. You are 100% wrong. There are times when people have problems beyond their control and cannot help what happens, however, in this case it was abolutely wrong as my father never made the debt in the first place and your dead beat company that you are so proud of wouldn't evn listen. It was obviously an idently scam/theft which was made after he died and I understand happens all the time. It doesn't seem tyo matter that they are going after the wrong person for the money. And what is really so funny about this is NCO financial was scammed too. NCO purchased the original debt so they are out whatever they paid for it as I spoken to my attorney and he said by law they cannot harrass me or send anything to him, especially since it obviously is not his debt. Of course upon telling NCO of this they refused and wanted my power of attorney for my Dad. Hey, NCO I am not as stupid as you are if you think I am giving you my POA. I have contacted my attorney and he will be contacting you. People these are the true scumbags as they obviously cannot get a halfway decent job themselves or they would not be working for this terrible place. We all need to contact our attorney general's office to stop this scam for good. I won't let my father be scammed even in death. Shortribs in Texas.
