harrassed business

Allentown, PA

#1 Aug 22, 2008
We are a business with a perfect payment record and perfect credit rating. In fact we've never missed a payment, we've never been late with a payment. Flathmenn and stern are debt collectors that are trying to pin another company's default on us. They are continually harrassing us for this payment and we had absolutley nothing at all to do with it. The company that defaulted is long gone and had a history of shady business dealings and were located thousands of mile away from us. I think they are the lowest forms of life on this earth and I would rather be dirt poor and living on the street before I would do what they do for a living. They should be ashamed!

Interesting that these comments could be posted.The debt in question is,in fact,a legitimate debt.The client is a trucking company. When one party dos not pay ie the shipper or the consignee,the other party must. Under title 49 usc the beneficial owner of the commodity shipped is the liable party.And until the named carrier on the bill of lading is satisfied,both entities are jointly and severly responsible.
The fact remains that our friend in Allentown was actually going to recieve assistance in making this go away except when he was called back,instead of being the really nice man as he was on the initial call,he cursed and hung up.
I over E stands for intellect over emotions. It would have been nice to see that take place here but instead,what did happen,was a frantic rat like scurry to this medium to play the victon roll,vent,and to otherwise attempt to give bad press to a firm that is simply doing its job despite the limited ability for our friend here to comprehend the protocol in any other business but his own.That means he is self centered in the extreem and does not know how to reason,only write bogus complaints and dwell in the problem while the solution,all his life,constantly eludes him.

I actually had a collection account with this company and they were amazingly helpful to me. The guy gave me assistance with how to remove some bad info on my credit file,called his client with me on the phone in a confrence call and went about getting the company to drop the bill against me.(It was actually my ex girlfriend who I co-signed for something.He did not have to do that....
Whomever is complaining,I suggest you look at yourself in the mirror,honestly,and evaluate your role in things-The person I spoke to was a breath of fresh air.

The company you are reffering is not what you say it is.The state failed in assisting me with recovering retro child support-This agency located my ex and recovered most of the retro.

Try as I might to pay them they refused telling me to "pay it forward".I tried to send them a check for their fee and they sent it back with a bunch of cards asking me to pass it out to anyone that has a need.

I never participate in these internet chats but after stumbling on this site today by accident,I read the comments and was blown away!

All I know is that I was so surprised that help came to me from the most unlikely of places....I guess everyone has their own expiriences but I will most definatly be reccomending this company even though I do not really know anyone that has
the need at this time.

I had to deal with this company last week.The person I talked to was a jerk. All I wanted to do is ask if I could start paying in 6 months to a year. I have some savings but was planning to go on a vacation.He told me "no" and tied to tell me he would calculate interest charges against me as well.What a jerk. We all have the right to take a needed vacation.The small company I owe waited this long so why can't they just wait longer ?

I hate these people!

Fair but firm. I was able to resolve everything but I wish it never came to this. I do not like having to owe anyone. The lady I spoke to as kind of nice but i am sure that is what a mother porcupine says about here childeren. She did help me in the end though.

This is bad-bad doing business company. I have placed account with them November 9, I haven't heard anything form them,so I start working to collect the debt myself. And I was successful! After I got a check and deposit it - guy showed up and ask for his(???) commission. Matter of fact that payee had not received any(ANY!!!!) phone calls from this asshole-company for 3(THREE) weeks. Nice business,huh? I hired them to do a job and they 3 weeks relaxing. No pay for them. Contact me for more info - plenty of evidence that this is BAD-BAD doing business company.

They collected 8 out of 10 claims i gave them all inside of 30 days. I have never worked with an agency that got these of results this fast. The last 2 claims are sort of dead anyway. 1 is out of business and the other filed bankruptcy so if you think about it, they collected 100% of all claims placed that could have actually been collected. Most of my files were over 1 year old and 3 of them I had no idea how to even locate them. This is not the norm in terms of results for an agency - I have been using collection agents for 35 years. I suggest you try them.
