So I owe the Attorney General some money from when I didnt go to college. Ive been paying it off little by little and it has gotten down to around $900. I get this letter a week ago from National Enterprise Systems and they say I owe them $1300 for it. They called my parents house today and harassed them saying that they would put me in jail if I didnt pay. I called them up with the letter they sent me in hand and asked what was going on. I gave him my name and everything and them he wanted my SS#. I told him I had their account number for me but he swore up and down he needed my SS#. I told him I didnt like giving it over the phone. He got all rude and started saying "Well gimme your SS# or we can just hang up the phone right now" I told him if he was going to be a prick about it Ill hang up, and I did.

Has anyone ever heard of National Enterprise Systems?

Well its the Ohio Attorney General's office, and since it was a community college, they deal with it I guess.

I did google it after I posted this and found out all sorts of horror stories about them making threats and such they dont follow through with. Its illegal for them saying that they will take legal action against you, that would be up to the people that they are collecting money for, according to FTC regulations.

bud hibbs has the low down on all of those sob's. lol

some of the disgruntled insider whistle blower stuff i've read on there about other collection agencies is hilarious!

edit: did you see this one? lol

May 2008

I recently worked at this horrible place. National Enterprise Systems is the collection agency from hell. The devil's worst nightmare. Employees are trained to collect according to the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act but once on the floor in their respective departments collectors are told to forget everything they learned.

My supervisor, Bryan Howard under the alias of Paul Stevens, regularly provided a second voice to collectors having trouble closing collections. This idiot would identify himself to callers as a federal agent, an NES attorney, etc., anything to try to scare the debtor into paying. He would actually tell debtors and their spouses that a lawsuit had been filed and if the account is not paid by postdated check by a certain time that day a deputy of the court was coming to serve the debtor on his job. I witness this on a daily basis all day long. B. Howard is neither a federal agent, attorney nor any of the other things he claims to be and NES don't sue debtors. All are clear violations of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act.

Debtors are talked to as if they're inhuman. Even when the debtor is not home the person taking the message is treated like dirt. I will never forget my supervisor shouting at an 81 year old African-American woman for not getting a pen and paper to take the message. "I DON'T CARE IF YOU ARE 81 YEARS OLD HE SCREAMED AT THE WOMAN." I've witness collectors hollering at kids "GO GET YOUR FATHER."

You are not supposed to talk to spouses—in certain states--about their significant others’ debt unless given permission by the spouse to do so. This rule is ignored at NES. In fact when I left training I put the document about the spouse rule on my cubicle wall to reference only to have it snatched and trashed by Bryan Howard who said I wouldn’t need it.

The owners Ernest Pollack, his wife, and two sons: Scott and pie-faced Chris are well aware of what is going on. These people are hands on owners. They constantly walk the call room floors, note the individual collectors and group collection sales and hear all the violations first hand. The more a collector screams at a debtor the more they like it. People actually clap and cheer when a collector goes off on a debtor. All that concerns these greedy bastards is how much money they are collecting at any given time.

Payments are demanded in full although they do offer settlements that are too demanded in full. Money orders and mail-in payments are not accepted, only postdated checks over-the-phone or Western Union Transfers for Citi Bank accounts. Some other creditors do allow NES to also take payment by credit card. For the postdated checks debtors are asked to give their accounting and routing numbers. NES, the scumbags they are, attempts to take the money out before the postdate. Nice company huh!

Collectors and supervisors once provided with bank info by the debtor call banks automated customer service numbers to obtain how much money they have in their accounts. We have their social security numbers so getting info this way is like taking candy from a baby. Some banks have safeguards against this and required you talk to a live person. They also work this wickedness on debtors’ credit card accounts or the credit card accounts of the debtors’ spouse, mother, father, etc. I remember one collector on the phone with a debtor saying “Your Mother Has $7,000 On Her Card She Can Use;” She Can Pay This Debt For You!”

If anyone needs someone who's "been there" in any of their legal actions against this despicable company I’m your guy. (Get in touch with us again - we have a member of Congress who wants to chat with you.)
and this is the life of the "cockaroach" who's hassling you. :)
