review

on XXXX XXXX, XXXX – I proactively reached out to MSB ( Municiple Sevices Bureau ). I was given their information from the XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX through which I had an outstanding fine. After calling MSB, I spoke to someone name ” XXXX ” and explained my intention of paying my fine. After looking into her system and asking questions for personal information, she claimed she found my account. She then gave me a total amount of {$630.00}. I initially was taken aback because my fine balance was {$500.00}. I asked why the difference and she proceeded to give me confusing and contradicting information. She stated that they ( MSB ) received my debt back in XXXX and that the courts could have added additional fees. She later clarified that they received it on XXXX XXXX, XXXX. My confusion is because that ‘s when I was arrested and court fines and fees were later decided in the later part of XXXX. She also gave a date of XXXX XXXX, XXXX – which would make more sense. This led to additional questions from myself trying to understand what she was telling me. She asked if I wanted to dispute the amount and based on what she was telling me. I answered yes. This is when her tone changed and she became argumentative and abusive. She threatened to terminate the call because as she said ” She do n’t have time for this!! ” – this was said multiple times as she spoke over me. When I asked for her to not terminate the call and that I have additional questions – she continued with the statement of not having time for that. She then said that she gave me the phone # to dispute the claim and was n’t going to answer any additional question. She was willing to let me talk to her supervisor and put me on hold – and of course I sat on hold waiting for an additional 45 minutes at which point, I decided to hang up. I feel that this agent had no right to use the disrespectful tone and threats that she used. I had every right to question the misinformation she gave me and I did it in a polite and professional manner. I ‘m requesting a formal apology from this specific agent ( preferably via phone call ) and I also would like a copy of the voice recording of our conversation. I ‘ve reached out to XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX to request that they reclaim my fine and I will pay it directly to the court. I absolutely will not pay this fine through MSB.
