Relative used my info as reference for a loan w/out my ok. Now store wants to repo the items & called me in search of him & his stuff.
Same relative also put my home # down as his work # on a payday loan, again w/out my ok. Loan is now in collections. Somehow they found my new ph # as well. Each time this debt gets transferred to a new dept or resold to a junk debt company someone once again calls me in search of the relative, not realizing that previous rep already spoke to me.
I thought (wrongly) that changing to an unlisted phone number would stop unwanted calls. How are they getting my number?
They are very polite people & I am glad to help them but I wish I wasn't pulled into this drama in the first place.
Will I have to give up my landline to make it stop?
Am thinking about sending a Cease & Desist letter to the relative to stop using my info or name on loans or as a reference. Not sure how to title this one.
