My boyfriend and I just applied for a mortgage and discovered a debt on his credit bureau that was paid off in 2010. The website is not legit. The phone number listed is not legit. This company has horrible reviews. THE REAL NUMBER IS 1-866-350-1405
We are giving the real number to our bank today and have explained to them the little scam this company has going on. PLEASE DO THE SAME AND SPREAD THE WORD!
This company keeps calling me, asking for me but using misspelled name which looks suspicious. I have a perfect credit, don't owe anyone anything but these morons must be going through some outdated papers and harass people. I know for a fact that they are asking for money that is not owed as I once (about 7 years ago) had an issue with a company, resolved it but when I told these guys to call the company to verify it, they refused and said they want me to pay them and that they don't care.
Bomjour j'ai essayer de vous appeler pendant 1 mois pour avoir des infos sur mon compte et personne repond au tel et persone retourne mes appels so j'en conclut que vous etes tous des imcopetents et que vous ne voulez pas vous faire payer
Paid this off 4 years ago and have been trying to get in touch with someone at Global for quite some time. Always no answer or the phone hangs up when you try to dial an ext?? Have the receipt from lawyers office to prove it...Answer your phone!!!!!
Husband was a fool when he was younger. He had a debt and Global Credit contacted him to pay..no big deal, Made arrangements to pay each month for 18 months. They took it out of the bank, on time, every month until July of 2010 (end of 18 months)...it is now April 2012 and we cannot contact them nor have we ever received a confirmation of payment and the Debt still shows on the credit bureau. Now a different company is contacting us telling us we owe the SAME debt
well , I guess you have an idea of my grievance, EH! it appears that it"s not the first one either, is it??? look you people need someone to field calls from the very people that you're harrassing in an illegitmate mannner. they actually want to cooperate with you, but it appaers you're too afraid to. what else could it be?? So, as far as i'm concerned, you are going to get paid, but i've decided to pay you $1.00 per month. how's that!!, until i get a receipt of some sort, O.K.
A very annoying pre-recorded message 'screams' at me when I answer the phone at a PLACE OF BUSINESS. I tried to call back and ask them nicely to STOP calling the business number but the extension I was put through to wouldn't allow me to leave a message, so I tried to call back again and at least speak to an operator with no success. I understand that these people are trying to do their job but when they harrass me at a place of business and I have nothing to do with their reason for calling, I have reason to be annoyed.
I have been fighting with these idiots for 2yrs now.....they say I owe monies to some company i have never heard of....I have asked for documentation of this bill and this company....all I get from global is a letter from THEM with a holding companies name on it saying I owe $$$$. I ASKED FOR A BILL FROM THE COMPANY THEY CLAIM THEY ARE COLLECTING FOR NOT A LETTER OF COLLECTION FROM THEM!!!!! We are not all as stupid as they are....I want specifics I want a DETAILED bill of sale for whatever it is I apparently bought and never paid for....this is not brain surgery people....WOULD YOU PAY A BILL YOU HAVEN'T SEEN TO A COMPANY YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD OF??????
Do not deal with these people they are bottom feeders buying collection reports from the final bucket of people who owe money, they harass anyone they could to get money on a debt so old that nobody even remembers the debt, they will call family members, elderly parents, kids, aunts uncles, hoping for someone to pay up to avoid problems for the person who owed the money 15 years ago....they don't stop and won't stop, they set their phones to auto dial and harass people 7 days a week, call them and you can never get to speak to anyone, they are bothering my parents about a grandson who doesn't even live in their province of choice.....they should be reported and shut down, but that happens everyday, they just open up under another name, take a look at the New York/Ontario borders (Buffalo) and these jerks have offices all over the place, even high felons to collect....BONEHEADS!!!!!!!!!!
Global keeps calling asking for a gordan this has been going on since Nov/Dec, but there is no Gordon here. At first we were polite, but when the calls didn't stop we got frustrated. Even when we phoned back telling them this number is wrong and to take it off, they were like this number doesn't exist! well of course it does they called us from there. Finally calls did stop for about a month and just today they start it again. Asked to speak w/supervisor, supervisors attitude was RUDE!! so that just fed my fire even more. She said that it was taken off today, but we'll see how long this lasts. NO Wonder why people swear and are rude to them. We have never been in collections and this harrassment is ridiculus. It's so maddening that it's actually getting to be funny! Even though they said it was taken off I think we're going in for round 20 tomorrow. GLOBAL IS A STALKER!!!!!!!!!
p.s. i wouldn't even give them 1/2 a star rating but it's making me :(
These guys were calling me about an account that was real old.
You can't expect me to pay for something from 5 years ago!!!
I tried talking to them but they didn't seem to get it.
I googled their company name "Global Credit" and found their website.
I sent a request to stop bugging me. A manager called me back a couple days
later and told me they were closing my account. The website is http://www.globalcollection.net
I am in agreement with everyone but the perfect person with no credit problems. These people are clueless. They never answer the phone, unless you know an extension, and even then you almost always get their voice mail. When you do get through to a human being, they don't know what they are talking about and they transfer you onto another person, in which you get a voice mail. RIDICULOUS! I took care of my account with them over a year ago, and yet my credit report shows that it was never handled. Okay, so where they heck is my money!
And, in case anyone is interested, the BBB rated them an F on a scale of A+ to F http://www.bbb.org/kitchener/business-reviews/collection-agencies/global-credit-and-collection-in-markham-on-19651
I have called this company numerous times about an outstanding debt I did not remember having from years ago that is holding me back from getting my mortgage. I have left messages saying I owe money and would like to take care of it immediately and no phone call have come back. I have been trying for 2 months and am fed up with it. I have taken care of outstanding debts with them before and have never had a pleasent time. They never mailed out any info proving that I have paid off my debts despite them promising to do so.I know it is my fault for not paing the debt off on time but when I am trying to pay it off and no one calls back despite numerous messages the blame gets passed onto them. Do your jobs!
I paid mine off with them over a year ago, and it still shows on my credit report that I still owe the full amount. They never sent a receipt even though they promised to, however, my credit counselor told me that the paper I faxed to them with the information for payment and the statement showing that the payment cleared is equal to a receipt. Thank God for that!
global collections, the guys phone 5 times a day want to pay a visa account with another credit card? Then this Mathew Locycero writes a letter saying congratulations!After reviewing your file, we will split your debt into monthly installments if you qualify, qualify for what? I not applying for credit. I think all that work there are ???? ups.
We received a new number from Rogers and ever since the calls from this company have been non stop for over 4 months. We were polite in the beginning but it's gotten totaly out of hand. We've explained to numerous people from this company that we are not the person they are looking for and have been told after every call that our number will be deleted from the computer. This is all a pack of lies. If you have problems continue with this company and you don't owe them any money phone the manager every time you receive a call from them. Call Anthony Pillay and complain!
I have recieved calls from this company for the last month. They have call me 17 times in one week and they call every hour on the hour sometimes they call 2 times back to back. A man named Warren called me I told him what was going on and he called me as if I never talk to him
I just want to say that it isn't the collectors fault that you owe money, everyone has a job to do and that is a collectors job to call you and try to get you to pay your bill, I agree with you all when saying that they shouldn't be rude when doing so but if you listen to yourself sometimes and understand the stress that they go through everyday having to look after your problems with money then you will realize that they aren't being rude and it is really you and your problems.
I have been in that situation where i owe money and by speaking properly with the collectors you will get things straight and with no hassle, i also have been a debt collector and i understand both sides of it, so think to yourself, if i want the calls to stop or to be treated with respect, what do you i need to do....
No I dont have collectors calling me, and YES that is a part of my current job description. BUT, get it right! If you call a few times and they say that it is the wrong number, you must verify the number you are calling through other sources, that IS your job too. If you care calling someone that is not remotely related to the client of interest, well you are illeagaly harrassing that person. And FYI that is a federal statute with serious penalties. Yes you ahve to do your job, so do I, but if the information is incorrect then figure it out. Validate your information before you go off with a torrent of calls.
These people keep calling me from 2 different numbers, looking for a person who is not even me (I recently got this phone number). I have tried to be a good person and talk to them, but I get put on hold, and then it rings and hangs up. I try to call back and the same thing happens. I would love to talk to someone and clear this up, but that appears to be impossible. I will be contacting Rogers to lay a complaint.
I totally hear you, I'm not with Rogers but have had my phone number for almost 10 years with Bell, about 18 months ago I started getting phone calls from various collection agencies for someone I've never even heard of. I gave up on nice and have threatened legal action, Global Credit Collection Agency called this morning and left a message on my voicemail to which I called back and got "I'm not the one who called you", sorry don't care who actually called me or whether it was their stupid automated system, take my number out!!
I have received numerous calls from these idiots claiming that I owe money for a credit card that I never had and have no knowlege of. I've told 3 people there that they have the wrong person.I have checked with both major credit reporting agencies, and the bank that they claim I owe money to, and none of these organizations know anything about this debt. "Global Credit" is a fucking joke and they don't have a clue on what they're doing. If they continue to call me I'm going to call the police and have them charged with harrassment. They have no business calling me with unfounded information.
I second your frustration. This guy named Georgeo keeps calling my house and it isn't even for me I had got into an arguement with him and and told him not to call here or I'm going to charge him with harrassment. He thinks it's funny and says he will keep calling. I'm going over his head first then it is going to be a call to the police. This is bull shit.
These people are ridiculous. Today I got Mr. Landau on the phone. I DO owe money, I KNOW I owe money, and am more than willing to work with whoever to get this debt paid off.
He decided SCREAMING at me and trying to belittle me was the best way to get me to pay him money. I hung up on him when he wouldn't let me get a word in edge wise. He called back, I answered... he started screaming PAY YOUR BILL over and over as soon as I answered and telling me he will call me all day every day until I do. I hung up again. This went on 15 TIMES! Finally he stopped calling, for today that is.
I am changing my phone number if this continues.
What happened to collection agents only being allowed to call 3 times (including leaving messages) in a 7 day period? Clearly this guy doesn't know the laws.
Either way, If this is how they treat people they are trying to get money from, they won't see a penny from me.
First of all, I would like to say that the people working for the company are usually instructed how to deal with 'customers' so they can't really be blamed for looking like a bunch of low IQ morons.
I don't owe anyone any money but I did have a dispute with Rogers over some charges. I have canceled a service with them and paid my last month plus cancellation fee, however they decided to ask me for more money. I sent a registered letter outlining all the money I owed and proof of payment. I did not hear from them for over 6 months.
Now Global starts calling I owe money. I want to stress I have good credit and plenty of money. It is the principle of the thing and the fact they are trying to extort money from me that pretty much guarantees they will not see the $200.00 and change, ever.
Some useful information:
- Most phone companies have a feature to block phone numbers (mine has up to 32) so you can block their number. You can also write a Cease and Desist letter to make them send you only letters for example, which can get expensive for them. - When I spoke to them, they tried to threaten with a lawyer and I welcomed it and said to please do it. They admitted I would have to send them a permission to contact a lawyer.
