unfair collection practice
By: thomas bolton
Sold a home to my daughter in CT in 2004.. House appraised at 160,000, sold to her for 132,00. On deed in says for love and consideration. No gift tax, right? WRONG CT then changed it to a conveyance fee that I have been making monthly payments. 5 years later, GC sends my wife a collection bill for the same tax,but back to calling it a gift tax, 5 years later! Call state of CT they say if GC says we owe, then we owe. If both my wife and I file jointly, how can they tax us seperately? My lawyer, the idiot that should have taken care of this at closing, said even if it is a gift tax, it can only be collected once from either of the joint return filers on the 1040, and if its a conveyance fee, there is no way it is $2100 on $132,00, Call GC, they tell me it must be paid in full, or interest will continue to accrue until paid in full. GC didnt offer a payment plan either, they want it all. Does this sound right? Double dipping both return filers and waiting 5 years to come after my wife after I made payment plan with state of CT. It went from 1200 dollars, to now $2800 between my wife and I. Im going to keep paying on the $1200 that the state and I agreed on, but GC can kiss my A** for the other $1200 that showed up 5 years later. I dont expect any help here, just venting.
Today I came into work, sat down to relax, and the phone rings. I see it is a toll number which normally doesn’t happen at work. I answer it and it is some female telling me that she is calling me to inform me that AT&T Universal Card (Citigroup) has turned my $13,600 in cc debt over to them. I owe $13,600. I said yes, yes I do owe that much. She than proceeds to ask me why I am behind, what the problem is, etc. I explained I had three jobs, and now have only one. I was evicted, and have bills to pay. I am a single mother, and money isn’t growing on any trees last I checked. She said that I needed to ask for it. I said is there a reason for your calling me? She continued to disrespect me, tell me that I am the one whom got behind and needs to get help since I obviously cannot take care of it myself. I told her I couldn’t get any loans or ask people for help. She said I had to. I again asked if there was a reason for her call at my job other than harassment. She gave the phone to her manager, who continued berating me telling me I have lost it. I said what is the objective of their call. He said to get me to pay. I said well if I could pay instantly we wouldn’t be talking. This company is pathetically allowed to exist.

I was contacted by GC Services on Sunday night (11/8) @ approx. 8:15pm. The call came in as a local #, so my husband answered it. The call was actually from GC Services in San Diego. The “woman’s” name is Dawnie and she said that their company was acquired by CITI bank, demanding the amount owed to them ($3947.95). She said that because I haven’t paid in 120 days, I am deemed evasive. I told her that I couldn’t pay the amount and she said that I had to pay the amount in 6 monthly installments of $657 then. Again, I told her that if I had that kind of money, I wouldn’t be in the situation that I am. She then gave me an option of paying $1973 up front and then $100/mth, but I had to give her “good faith” payment of $50, which I did. She told me that I had to call her today, to let her know when they could take the remainder of the $ out of my account. I called her today and she was rather short with me. She said that I had to give her another check # and that she was post dating it for 11/25 for the $3897.95 (less $50). I told her that she can go ahead and do that, but expect the check to bounce. All in all, I have to call her back at 2pm tomorrow, to let her know when the money will be in my account.

On Friday Nov.13 GC Services called my home and right off became agrressive re a student loan that I’ve been trying to resolve with the department of education since there is a descrepency in the amount, I borrowed only 2000 but there is another 4000 that someone at the school used my name in acquiring the second and forging my name. The school, Pasadena City College, doesn’t issue loans of more than 2000 to students. When I did my own investgation, I found out the aforementioned info and a copy of the check,but hit a wall with fiscal services at the school. “Lost information”. GC Services didn’t care about any of that. They wanted 4000 on a 2000 student loan not to mention the other loan I never applied for and was being charged for. As I spoke with Kelly, who was trying to offer me a one time settlement agreement, a butthead named Rick Stone interjected and proceeded to be very arrogant and aggressive, never indicating what the offer was. Before I got real nasty I hung up. I had told them I had been laid off and could only afford to pay 50dols per mo. Apparently Mr. Stone wasn’t satisfied with that. My main concern is whether or not GC Services can garnish my uemployment benefits which aren’t really paying the bills as is. Also if I send money to one of the above GC Sevices locations can I trust that they will route the money to the proper place and give me credit?

I keep receiving calls from these clowns for a John XXX. I keep telling them no one by that name is at the phone number (a main USA Bank telephone line) they keep calling. This has been going on for at least three months. One to three calls a day, even on weekends. Each time the GC Services dufus tells me (or I should say ‘lies to me’) that my name will be taken off their list. I am getting tired of these harrassing calls. They border on stalking. And I am not even the person they are trying to get a hold of. I have no debts and I pay off my single credit card amount every month. Wish I could get a hold of their phone numbers so I could keep calling them. Especially the president of the company.
GC Services has known to buy out other creditors to update personal information about other lenders and barrowers they harrass people and very agressive they dont turn the tables as if it was happening to them.
Not my Ticket
By: Roland Manio
First time I drove the company pick up truck, i got stopped for unregistered vehicle. The cop told me it not my problem , just give the ticket to my office and they’ll take care of it. After 9 years, GC Services told me I own $1,101.00 for the above ticket and they will suspend my license if I won’t pay monthly. Afraid they my take away my license, I made payments. How can they after me and not the owner of the vehicle? I still need to pay $401.00 and been out of job for months now.
Suspend my license
I paid a ticket that went into collections at GC Services 7 years ago. Wonderful! They took it off my record and I was able to renew my license. 2 years flies by I’m stop for a speeding ticket with no record of a suspension on my license. Took care of that. Then, had my car broken into and was robbed! I went to the DMV to replace my license the very next day and told me there was a suspension on my license for a fine I didn’t pay for 7 years ago from GC Services. That initially was paid for and enabled me to get my license back! Well, out of the blue I owe $1,800.00 to GC Services stating that I didn’t pay this fine and that my license would be suspended. Well, it is in fact suspended and is hard for me to get to work and school. I’m a starving student and esp. in this economy it’s obviously not making ends meet or getting any better. I’ve been pulled over and impounded and have these additional fines that I simply cannot afford!!! I am taking a risk but, there’s nothing I can do to get by day to day. This is sad.

THEY KEEP CALL ME ON MY CELL PHONE AFTER I ALL READYTOLD THEM THAT IAM ON SSI MONTHLY PAYMENTS AND MY HOUSE PHONE TO
By: Zachary Booker
GC Service has constantly called me at work and have sent my the state Agency I work for Garnishment papers to garnish my wages. I have explain to GC Svc that I had filed Chapter 13 and it took my attorney to get rid of them. Two (2) days after my Chapter 13 was discharged they were back in action again. In 2007 or 2008 they were put on hold by my State Agency now they are back and I could possibly lose my job because of these people. The State Agency has guidelines for people that are in default on Certain Student Loans. What can I do about this? I have a very short window in order to resolve this problem and I am not getting answer from GC Services.
Upset in Long Beach
By: Upset in Long Beach, CA
The City of Long Beach has contracted with GC Services to collect for city fees and fines. I called the toll free number because I was unable to process my payment in full online. It kept going into error. The person I spoke to was so unprofessional and rude it was unbelievable. I calmly explained that I was having a problem getting the payment to process. Then he told me that I must be stupid and that I didn’t know how to use computers. I told him his comments were inappropriate and that I was trying to pay the fine in full. He said there was a $35 processing fee for paying online but that if I paid by check through phone there was no charge. I said that there was no notice of a $35 processing charge and he said well, I’m telling you now. I said that I had to get the account and routing information and that I would call back. When I called back about an hour later I spoke to someone who was even more rude. I explained that I was calling to pay the fine in full. He said that before he could process the payment he needed to update my profile. He then proceeded to ask me personal questions that had nothing to do with paying my fine. He asked me where I was working and what my current salary range was. I said that I thought it was inappropriate to ask me that and he said okay, let’s go to the next question. Then he asked me if I was single, married, widowed, or divorced. I told him he was out of line and I demanded to speak with a supervisor. He put me on hold and then a woman came on the line and was yelling at me. She asked me if I was prepared to pay my fines in full and I said yes, that’s why I’m calling. Then she shouted that I had to comply with their procedure and I said that I didn’t see why they needed information about my job or marital status in order to process a payment. She shouted that if I didn’t want to pay my fines I shouldn’t waste their time. I said again that I did want to pay my fines in full, but that I wasn’t going to give them that kind of information. She shouted that if I was going to follow their procedure to not call them and she hung up on me. What in the world is the City of Long Beach doing business with this kind of a company? Who do these people think they are? I have contacted a local traffic attorney in the City of Long Beach to straighten this out and I have made a complaint with the city.
Rude and Unprofessional
My first experience with GC was about 1 year ago when I was contacted by Sacramento County stating that I owed money and they sent ti to collections. I called GC and was bombarded by personel questions and statements pertaining to the reasons I had to pay the fines in the first place. I called today to get it handled and they will not let payments be made. How can major cities do business with such a scumbag outfit??
Settled with them but…
I Settled with them in regards to my T-mobile account that i owed $150 GC services wants $850. I settled for $300 they said that they would send me my settlement paper showing that i paid them once the payment went through and when it did the called me back and said that the never settled with me and that they want the rest of the money.And they have it on recording my conversation but they wont check. What can I do? Please Help.
I got a call from GC Services. I spoke with a young man whomn seem nice. When I got to asking information about account number and where the laon org from he kept putting me on old and coming back with pieces of information finally asked about a payment plan.He told me I had to use my checking and refuse to give me an address to send payments. I then asked for a supervisor who instead of wanting to listen to why I can’t do a payment plan using a checking account he said I either use someone else account or I could pay loan in full. I asked to speak with someone or his boss he refuse to transfer the call. So I went online found the number because I the number they call me from didn’t work. I got the same person who still refuse to give a payment address and then refuse to give me a direct number to there office so i didn’t have to be transferred two or three times to get to the right department.It seems to me that they want checking info to misuse our checking accounts.If I’m correct they should not reject someone willing to pay if they don’t have a checking account.

GC Services Contacting me about sibling
I have received calls from GC Services in St. Louis twice in the last two business days. They want to know if I am the brother of a sibling and the contact information for that sibling seems incorrect. I told them I was the brother but would not give them my siblings info. I would take there info and pass it to my sibling. He seemed upset about this and after some prying I got what company he was from. He said if my sibling did not contact them, that they would be calling me back. Can they do this?

head of maintnance
By: valerie smith
I worked for gc for over 9 yrs, i was aloyal employee. I went on fmla due to a injury at work,after many months of physcal therepy , i was told that i would no longer be able to do the maintnance work due to my restrictions… there were many. one of them is that i coulnt sit or stand for no longer than 30 mins. now comes the good part.. they offerd me a job as an AR ( account rep.) which requires at least 10 hrs of constant sitting. and in turn they offered me a job doing this for a 13 hr. shift!! we dont even have a 13 hr. shift!! so in turn i refused to do this and in turn gc terminated my employment and in a most unfreindly manner( gc is known for this) they will turn on you like a snake in the grass. and they refused me my 3 wk paid vacation they i receved after jan. 1 st of every yr. i was terminated not until 6/2/2010. sooo wheres my vacation pay? gc is not loyal to their employees. they will stab u in the back the first chance they get. no matter how long u work for the company and how loyal u are to them. its a shame. I dont recomend anyone to work for a company like gc services.
Are they for real….
By: Nikkia Singleton
I got a call from GC Services yesterday & spoke with a woman about CC debt. She stated that I owed a little over $500 & have a min payment of $160, but she would take a $50 payment that day. I explained to her that I havent been working for a year & that I had family helping me pay my rent & utilties & the this is a personal bill and they are more concerned with keeping a roof over the heads of me & my sons. She sends me to a supervisor to see if anything could be done. So this man gets on the line & starts saying that I can give him my acct info & they can post date the check til Monday to give me time to borrow the money. I said well what if I cant get the money by then can you change the date of the payment, he says no. So I tell him that I dont want to do that unless I know that I have the money so I dont get hit with a bunch of fees for a returned check. This man then asks me if I own a tv, I reply what does that have to do with my debt, so he tells me that I need to go sell my tv (whivh is a luxary) & give them the money I get for it. Are you kidding me, who are you to tell me to start selling items in my home & if that were an option dont you think I would have done that to avoid borrowing money from family. So he tells me well if you dont make a payment today your account will go further into collections, I asked well aren’t you calling from a collection agency, so how much further into collections can you take me. This company is not only unprofessional but they need to go over their rules & regulations again. I use to work in collections & I know that mess they pulled is wrong in so many ways…

Great! Nice information, keep sharing.
My husband has a court payment every month for $35. I dropped the money order off and forgot the account number on the money order, it was on the envelope. The next day GC services called. The county finally figured out that I paid it on time but by that time it was already in collections. Now I went from a $35 dollar payment to GC wanting $175.00 it’s almost a car payment. These people are so full of it.
Bad collection practices
GC Services is very evasive including the secretary about who they are and what they do. They have refused to provide their name or what service they provide. I was able to skip trace the number myself and find out some things about GC Services. I even went as far as to send them a Validation of debt letter and they still refused to provide any of the information in the debt letter. GC Services does not follow FDCPA guidelines, nor do they have the right to try an intimidate me on the phone. I have recorded their evasive practices and intend to take appropriate measures to stop them. I have sent three letters letting them know that a response to my letter would expire in a few days. They simply continue to call even after being told by phone and in writing to cease all communication with myself. My credit report even shows 58 payments being made on a vehicle that I do not own and they refuse to acknowledge or discuss the issue. I can assure you that when they receive my next correspondence it will be from my attorney.
