So cue to the last few months when an unknown number keeps calling me on and off (dont call for a month but then call for a week or two, 3 times a day).. The number makes its way to my cell as 216-545-4278. I have no idea at first what this number is at first because they leave dead air voicemails or when I have picked up, noone is there.
Finally I call the number back a week ago and its my credit card company. I explain to the lady that the number calls repeatedly and leaves empty voicemails or noone is on the other line when I pick up. She is quiet for some moments before she informs me I have been missing payments. I ackowledge this and tell her I have been having money problems as a college student (not that she would care, but I said it anyway. Don't know why) So she tells me that I should just pay 75 by the 4th to pay my past due. I say okay and hang up.
But the number KEEPS CALLING ME! Keeps flooding my mailbox with empty voicemails, keeps dead air on the other line when I pick up. I don;t understand. I talked to someone all ready, but this ghostly number keeps. calling. me.
Do I have any rights in this case? Anything I can do? And please refrain from making judgmental comments, because trust me, I am fully aware of how big of an idiot I have been with that credit card :o). I'm just seeking advice from someone who may know.
ETA: So I checked online and the number does not match any sort of hotline my credit card has. At first I thought maybe the above number was only an outgoing line, but after I was able to call back the number and speak to someone, I now have my doubts. Not to mention the lady I was spoke to (which is why I don't understand why they are STILL calling me numerous times a day) was quick to ask if I wanted to make a payment via phone...Something seems a little off to me
Thanks for all your help everyone, I really appreciate it.
