...The reason I'm writing a complaint, is when I (the customer) was not satisfied rightfully so, the director V. Brown lacked professionalism in rectifying the situation. She first came off as dismissive and even attempted several times to bait an argument with me...

I didnt want to believe it so i called TCN and talked to several different people and got vague run around in circles answers. I stopped the payments and now here it is 2 years later and i literally get phone calls every three months or so from some company saying they are representing TCN and that TCN is currently moving my account to prelegal status where they will seek legal actions and the right to enforce that by any means necessary should i not pay and what are my intentions.
