Consumer Complaint: On XXXX XXXX, 2017. I called Ideal Collection Services in XXXX, XXXX after I had received a letter from them. They were collecting for an outstanding repair fee for an apartment I used to rent over a year ago. They were apparently going after me for some fees that remained even though I paid and signed off on everything. They hired this third party I guess to try and collect. Never ever have I ever experienced such an incredibly rude and demeaning company as this. I went along with all they wanted in order to resolve it, I asked for 1 more day to do it! They told me they could n’t do it and told me when I call back I would need to pay the full amount. That if this were not done the account would be reported to the credit bureaus would and hung up. I called again and asked to speak with someone else and they told me I could n’t I explained that I wanted to pay it but wanted to speak with someone else, again they told me to call back when I was ready to pay and hung up again. I again called and wanted to speak to someone different and again was told I could not. I could n’t believe this was an allowable practice. I was willing to pay and resolve the issue yet it almost seemed like they did n’t want me to! All I can think was how incredibly evil this person was. Not sure how she sleeps at night. And shame on this company for having people like this on their staff. I do not want this to reflect on my credit and I am willing to pay it. I was so cooperative and soft spoken and they completely belittled me and did not want to help me at all. They now do not even pick up when I call. I just want to deal with another person as I refuse to be treated that way. At one point I told her I was going to report them and complain in which she responded, who are you going to complain to? ” in a totally condescending way. Like there was no one who I could complain to. I literally was sick after this incident.
