I have received numerous calls from Assension Point claiming my brother who passed away early in November at a young age regarding an outstanding debt. My brother was quite affluent and always had excellent credit. Of course anyone could have financial problems but here’s my contention:
The person who called and spoke to my husband disclosed the last 4 of my brothers social, his name, his street address and the name of his spouse as a second authorized party. My husband never gave more than his first name and wasn’t asked.
He was asked if my brother had an estate or probate attorney. He was also told by rep(have name & ext)that Peter’s estate would be pursued. Peter’s home is in KensingtonNH. We live in MA. Please tell me rights I have. Want file formal Complaint
