I recieved a call from a woman with a strong Spanish accent stating that she was from a company called Escullate LLC calling about a debt. I found this call very suspicious because I DO NOT HAVE any debts. I pay all bills in a timely manner.
The woman called me she sid she is calling from Escullate LLC about debt and before she can proceed I must provide her with my address, social security numbr and Date of Birth. WTF????
My first response was no. You called me you should already have that information. I told her before I proceed she needs to tell me the name of the corporation that claims that I have a debt with. For all I know she is some random person calling my number trying to solicit my information for identity theft. I would know if her call is authentic if she could at least provide the name of the corporation because I know who I do business with. Of course, she refused. The way any scam artist would because they do not have the facts.
I honestly believe that if the call was authentic the following procedures would have been conducted to resolve a debt.
1) Hire a staff who can clearly and articulately speak ENGLISH.
2)Would not call asking for my DATE of Birth, Social Security Number and Address simply to verify who they are speking with.I find this very suspicious especially when there are thousands of people who become victims of Identity Theft.
3) Would have stated the name of the company, Doctor, establishment etc., who stated there is a debt.
4) I told the rude and unporfessional person that if their goal is to resolve a debt send me a bill or written notice of the debt and information in writting. She refused to do so.
So, I am sharing this experince with you because I think they are a fraud. If they truly wanted to resolve a debt they would have cooperated and provided information of the debt oppose to obtaining my personal information to do with however they please.
I don't think by them calling me on my cel phone is allowed especially since I am on the do not call registry to prevent this type of foolishness.
Why do I think they are Frauds? Since the rude phone call I contacted businesses and was not informed of any debts. I called Dr. offices and hospitals they have my health insurance on file. There are no debts reported.
