Do Calls from 877-394-5975 Make You Crazy?
Here’s the situation…. When Carson Smithfield calls from 877-394-5975, it can get on your nerves. Consumer discussion boards around the web are filled with complaints about calls from 877-394-5975. Here are some of the things folks are saying:
- One harassed consumer wrote, “This company called me five times so far today and two times yesterday. They are a pain in the neck. They never leave a message.”
- Another consumer reported, “I have been getting about seven to eight calls a day from this number, which is annoying because I am disabled and elderly. I can not be harassed like this. Someone should put a stop to this insane harassment. No one in a civilized country should have to put up with annoying calls everyday and all night.”
- A third said, “They call from early morning until late at night. My husband and I are in our late 80s. As for as I know we have no late debts.”
This pattern is all-too-common with debt collectors. These days, debt collection agencies routinely employ auto-dialers to “robocall” consumers. In addition, they get huge data files from original creditors, yet the files often contain incorrect information, such as a balance due when no money is owed. Moreover, debt collectors sometimes do things that are outrageous, such as calling the next of kin for someone who is deceased, in order to try and recover money that is legally unrecoverable.
Sometimes, even consumers who have worked out payment arrangements get harassed. One consumer wrote, “My husband lost his job almost five years ago. I did get behind on this bill. However, I set up a payment plan with them and I pay them biweekly. It auto-pays out of my bank account, so it is always on time. I have made 17 payments since we started the arrangement. I want to pay them what I owe them and I am paying them. However, they continue to call me at work and at home, regardless of the fact that I am sticking to the arrangements we both agreed to.”
When you’re on the receiving end of phone calls from 877-394-5975, it can be very annoying. One consumer wrote, “Need to stop calling me 10 to 15 times a day!”
