Complaint / review text:
I'm an instructor at a tutoring center and they have been calling my work. I told them they were not allowed to call and she got belligerent with me. I had parents walking in the front door as I was trying to get off the phone. She said she had confirmed my employment and I had to give her a cell phone number. I finally just hung up on her. I then looked up the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and it states that if it is 'inconvenient' for you to take calls, they are prohibited from calling. They specifically mention teaching, along with hospitals, funeral homes and restaurants. So if they call you and you work in a similar field, just refer them to the FDCPA. I still can't get a straight answer out of them as to which debt they are supposed to be collecting on also. They are just slimy beyond reason!
