On XXXX/XXXX/16, I received a phone call on my personal cell from XXXX XXXX with National Processing in regards to a checking a credit reference for a gentleman named XXXX XXXX I did n’t know personally. I indicated that I was not sure who she was talking about and I was not vouching for someone I did n’t know or had given permission to use me as a reference. I indicated to XXXX XXXX that me being listed as his reference could be a mistake because my son, who shares the same first and last name with me, did have a friend who I vaguely remember under a similar name but I was n’t sure. How he got my cell number is unknown to me. But she acted as if I was blowing her off and told me in a nasty voice that I should n’t let people list me as a reference then! I asked her not to call me again regarding this again and hung up. Today on XX/XX/2016 at XXXX, XXXX XXXX calls me back on my cell and leaves a message for me to return her call by XXXX today regarding a check case with XXXX XXXX XXXX or the case would be turned over to the XXXX County DA and I would be deposed for a deposition regarding his case. So I immediately called back and opened the conversation by stating my name and I was returning her call and gave her the case number upon request which she left on the message. She then asked if this was me and I indicated that I just told you my name at the top of the conversation so why are you asking again? She responded angrily that I was getting smart with her and did not have to deal with me. I called back and she hung up on me. I called back and another lady answered and I asked her to nicely tell XXXX XXXX that I am not associated with XXXX XXXX and to please not call me and that I would be filing a complaint. She said she would. My complaint is that the company ‘s tactics are unethical and unruly to contact me and falsely make me think that they were initially checking a credit reference and yet they are really a collection agency. I have clearly asked this company to stop calling and harassing me over this man ‘s account and yet they still persist in doing so. I want this harassing action to cease and take whatever action against this company that the law allows. Thank you!
