Type of a scam Debt Collections
I am filing a complaint against Vin Captial llc for claiming that I owe them money of which I have never received.
On November 9, 2016 I received a phone call from a collections company saying Vin Capital LLC has put a claim on me and that I should pay the money back immediately. My claim number is XXXXX. It is claimed that I received money from them on August 2nd, 2011. They were unable to tell me the amount but said that I now owe them $1025.00 and will continue to go up. They said that my bank account was closed on November 28th, 2011 and that they never received the funds. However, when I went to my bank (my old bank to see if they ever deposited the funds), they said that they couldn’t look that far back BUT that my account was closed on March 28th, 2013. Vin Capitol had our old address and said that they were going to take me to court, find my employer and garnish my wages. I found out from my old bank that these companies don’t start contacting you until 5 years after the fact because most banks will put the account information on a CD after 5 years and it won’t be in their system anymore. I asked if they could send me paperwork in the mail and they said, "they already tried that." But I know they haven’t because it’s a federal offense to contact someone via mail when they know it’s not a legit company. This company keeps calling me from different phone numbers from an area in TN because I continue to block each number. I want them to stop harassing me. The last time they called me they asked for my fax number to send me paperwork. When I asked them why they hung up. They will not let me speak when they ask me a question. They are rude and threatening. This company is NOT legit. Do not give them ANY information. They need to be stopped.
