How to I stop Preferred CMS from calling daily?


Recommended Posts

I have called them, sent them a letter asking them to stop sending letters and calling me multiple times a day leaving voice mails on my phone.

They will not stop.

I don't owe them anything, don't even know what they are trying to collect but my BK was discharged two months ago and somehow they got my number

and will not stop calling.

Some days they leave 4 or 5 messages during the day. Hello, this is Preferred CMA calling about the amount you owe us.

Thank you for your input.

I sent them a simple letter asking them to stop contacting me at the phone number and stop calling every day, multiple times a day and even today 3 times a robo call.

 

No Centex, this is not the same company.  Actually the free ride ended up in our favor as they released the lien and we now own the car free and clear with a new title cleared. Worked out to NOT volunteer the car after all. Guessing the same as people here who use cc's to the max, buying anything they want and once they file BK they do not return the goods, electronics etc they purchased with the CCs. Since the car was NOT a car loan and was security on the loan my guess is they had to release it?

Guess a nasty phone call to stop harassing me 4 time yesterday with a threat to hire an attorney did the trick. I called the phone umber waited for 15 minutes until some rude guy comes on telling me how much we owe them and why don't you pay your bills? You created them now pay them!

That got ugly real quick. Won't post what I said but lets say this, in the end he said he would mark to stop all calls because they were not aware of the BK. I said, listen, had you done your damn homework and showed up for the telephonic creditors meeting you would have known.

No calls today! A win for the creditboards members!

It always helps to have proof that they received the letter; of course they will lie and say they didn't. The FDCPA provides for atty fees, and most CONSUMER attorneys will give you as quick free opinion. Other types of attorneys usually know nothing about consumer law. 

What you (and others) would be well-served to learn and pay heed to is that MOST attorneys have an area in which they practice.  Covering something in the span of a semester somewhere in the three years or while prepping for the Exam does not mean one is wanting cases in that arena.  You don't go to an appellate attorney in most instances for issues with oil or gas law just like the fool that uses a tax attorney to defend them in a criminal case has chosen someone outside of their realm of expertise.  They are NOT going to be happy with the eventual outcome.  The OTHER thing you would do well to learn is that these sorts of matters are not mana from heaven.  It is precisely the people like you that don't want to pony any funds up in the beginning, not realizing that fees only come in a case where the gavel bangs at trial and those will be meager fees at that.  The money made on a settlement is a pittance not worth the time even for a baby attorney freshly minted from whatever tier school that they came out of...where some of us elect to get involved is usually a favor for a friend where the quid pro quo won't show up on a balance sheet and where we are not investing more than the time it took to send a single letter.  

 

We have bills to pay and waiting for a few thousand somewhere down the road is NOT a good way to be comfortable in life.  Contrast that with the area where I spend most of my energy and where my clients are paying up front and I get my $10-15K, running several such cases in a given year along with a small handful of revocation matters which tend to net another $7500 or so for a few hours of actual work.
