I would refer them to your attorney or your state attorney general

This company started calling friends and family saying I was being audited. The caller was a Shelia Brooks. She only left a voicemail which also stated they were auditing me. When I contacted them I received a call center which would not provide any information and would not give me Ms. Brooks direct phone number. When I would call back they would hang up. I finally reached her supervisor Donna Williams. Ms. Williams would not provide any information regarding an Audit unless I provide my Social Security number. I have referred this matter to the States Attorney Generals offices.

DONT USE THIS COMPANY

I have been divorced from G.M. for 35 years. He died 7 years ago. Out of the clear blue and all these years, I have started receiving collection calls from ABSOLUTE collections. The robotic voice states her name is Heather Lock J104**** regarding bank draft dismissal. If I wish to speak with a representative, press 1. I press 1 to ask for removal from their list as it has nothing to do with me. One girl said she would remove my home number. A couple of days later another call, same scenario -- again I told this so called representative that G.M. is deceased please check vital statistic records in SC; furthermore, we divorced 35 years ago and my number has never been associated with his financial endeavors. She hangs up on me in the middle of the sentence. Day 3 yet another call regarding G.M.'s "bank draft dismissal" account J104**** and this time it is an actual voice from someone who identifies herself as Mary. I responded: I am glad you are calling because I am on a DO NOT CALL LIST, YOUR COLLECTION ENDEAVORS DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH ME -- TAKE ME OFF YOUR LIST. She just hangs up. The phone number three days ago was 1-85*-281-****; second call was from 855-282-**** and the most recent call was 855-282-****.

Reason of review
I WANT TO BE REMOVED FROM THEIR HARASSING PHONE CALLS --How dare they call and call and call me when I have never done business with them. The man they are calling about is deceased and I explained this four times! Furthermore, we were divorced 35 yrs.
Preferred solution
Remove me from this list. Due diligence and verify with SC department of vital statistics for clients who are deceased.

Debt collection fraud

Two weeks prior to today, a representative from Absolute Financial Services contacted my wife, my ex-wife, my brother-in-law and me pertaining to a debt forwarded to collections that they were seeking resolution on. The account was described as a credit card account that if not paid that day then a server would serve 'papers' at place of work of the account holder the same day as the call. The representative offered half settlement over the phone to call off the server. The account holder asked for verification of the account and she agreed to pay if furnished since it was not something that was intentionally avoided. Authorization for payment form was sent with account information (Creditor HSBC BANK NEVADA N.A. IT'S AFFILIATES. Acct. 545800****218860). The card number does not exist in HSBC records, on account holders credit bureau accounts Equifax or TransUnion, nor did Absolute furnish proof of account delinquencies. Today a representative, Donna Williams, phoned my wife and me to discuss payment arrangements. Threats were made in the form of legal action for failure to pay, but Donna Williams and her associates Cindy Williams, Webber Paige, Kimberly and Miss Jones refused to send a digital record by form of text or email of the information pertaining to the account in which they were trying to collect. Spanning over a period of an hour of repeat calls to Absolute Financial Services and disinformation given by different representatives resulted in them withdrawing there collection due to the persistence of attempting to acquire account information that they could not or would not deliver to resolve said delinquent account. The number that was used to contact us was immediately disconnected.

AFS (Absolute) is a Payday Loan Collection Scam

I received a call from 866-816-**** AFS saying I took out a payday loan in 2012 and the check bounced so they are filing fraud charges if I didn't pay. I called back and Jordyn answered saying that if I didn't pay they would fax documents to my work and home and file the charges. I knew I didn't take out the loan or bounce a check in 2012, however didn't want a fraud charge against me so I paid 200 of the 550.00 that I "alledgedly" owned. They emailed me a payment arrangement but I refused to sign it until I received the original documents proving that I really took out the loan. I receive a call back from Jordyn from 855-209-**** saying they will go ahead and fax over the charges they are filing etc. Of course they didn't because it is a scam. Don't give these people any money no matter how intimidating they are.
