While I can't say I enjoy hearing from any collection agency, they did treat me with respect. Ron was funny. He helped me get my bill taken care of.
We agreed on a monthly payment plan of $400 a month for my outstanding medical bills from a hospital visit. After three monthly payments that were all made as agreed and on time I was able to get payment from my health insurance company and paid off over $4900 in one month. They then attempted to collect the remaining $268 the next month and said that I was late paying. I said doesn't the $4900 payment mean I'm months ahead of schedule and she was rude and said it doesn't work like that. This is not the original agreement at all, I've paid well over $400 a month and am close to paying off the entire amount a year early! I do not like being threatened to go to court or have my wages docked after making a payment of almost $5000! These people should be struck off. To add insult to injury NONE of this was my fault but the fault of my health insurer messing up with the billing. They gladly admitted this and cut a cheque as soon as it was pointed out.

Asset Systems, Inc. is potentially a scam collection agency and fake collection agency.Asset Systems is currently being investigated and has been reported to the Washington State Attorney General office and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
A person named Michael called me pretending to be a process server. When I asked why I was suposedly being served he said: &quot;Oh! You don't know!? I will give you a phone number to call.&quot; The funny thing is that the number he gave me for the suposed collection agent was the number he called me on in the first place. I played along to see where it was going and he made threats of legal action if I didn't give him a large sum immediatly. He had a woman pretend to be his assistant. This is clearly a scam. This suposed debt isn't even on my credit and they have never contacted me by mail. Once I told him I knew he was a scam artist he stoped calling and I havn't recieved any notice of legal action. If they call you demand proof of the debt be mailed to you immediatly.
