NCO / Wyse Financial Services Complaint - Collection scam
EAST MOLINE, ILLINOIS -- To the few on this site that are saying "lighten up" or "we're just doing our jobs!" We are angry because NCO and other collection agencies are LYING and SCAMMING, and yet you call us the liars. You may not realize that your employer is doing this and also using you to do it. I got a phone call today regarding a loan from 17 years ago! I PAID this debt in 1999 to clean up my credit report so I could buy a house, which I did in 2000. Now 8 yrs later out of the blue I get this call. I was told that they have sent numerous letters to my address and to my parents address. I never once in 8 yrs received a letter from them, and the reason is because that bill was paid. How do you go back 8 yrs to find that proof? I plan on doing that though. The rep was extremely rude and told me I was lying and that I obviously "trash" my mail. Sounds like a scam to me.
I imagine people fall for this every day and NCO makes big bucks as a result.
