Review: I received calls from relitives that a collector was asking for me to collect a debt I called the agency that is Kevin z Shine but was a Rhode Island phone number to arrange a payment plan and was told my option was to pay 990 dollar's down and then they could set a monthly payment for balance I told him I could not pay that amount in one payment and ask if there was a way to set up a pay of 100 or 200 a month but he ask if I considered taking a loan out to pay this debt why would I want to make another debt even if someone would give me a loan for 1800 I am willing to do monthly payments I have been paying 50 a month every month on this bill now so tripling this payment to 150 I would think should be a sufficient amount to settle this debtDesired Settlement: to have a payment plan within my means to settle this without interest rate increasing debt out of reach I do not dispute some interest should apply but not 28%
Review: I owe on a [redacted] Credit Card $546.98. I received a letter from Kevin Z Shine the other day, and a phone call on Tuesday I believe. I called back this morning to talk to [redacted]. I explained I wanted to check this business out online first.
Review: I received a phone call/voice message on my personal cell from this Law Office in regards to the roommate down the hall in obtaining his contact information. First off, how do they even know we're connected. There's nothing anywhere connecting us. Second, we rent individually from the landlord, so it's not like we're on a lease together. And thirdly, how do they even get my cell phone number. That's not public information either. Seriously, this is insane.Desired Settlement: I really want to know who they got their information about me.
Review: I am the Attorney-in-Fact for * & [redacted] who has an outstanding credit card debt with [redacted]. The law office of Kevin Shine are the attorneys for [redacted]. I spoke to a [redacted] from the law firm and tried to setup a small monthly pay -down of this debt because [redacted] is current unemployed and taking care of her 93 year old dad. * works at a low paying job. I explained to [redacted] that given their current situation the *'s could only afford to pay between $75.00-$100.00 per month until their situation improved. At first [redacted] stated they could not accept such a small amount on a $13,000.00 debt but would settle it for $5,000.00 in a lump sum payment. I explained that the *'s did not have $5,000.00 to settle and could only pay a small amount each month. When I called [redacted] a second time he said ok just tell them to send what they could each month. When I asked [redacted] if there were going to be any finances charges assessed each month he say nah, just tell them to send in what they could and it would be applied to their balance. I then asked [redacted] to send me a letter stating that there would be no financ charges added to the bill and that they would accept small monthly payments, he stated he could not send such a letter. By stating first that they could not accept such a small payment and then stating o.k. let them send in whatever they want each month and refusing to put it in writing is a direct violation of * & [redacted]'s consumer rights. By refusing to cooperate in this matter The law office of Kevin Shine and [redacted] have violated * & [redacted]'s consumer rights!Desired Settlement: A small monthly payment plan of $75.00-$100.00 with a letter stating that as long as they made their monthly payments no finance charges would be added to their balance owing and that at no time would the law firm of Kevin Shine excellerate the loan to take out a judgment..
Review: This company has been harrassing family members as faraway as South Carolina by phone to try to get information about me. I do not know what this agency is trying to contact me regarding, but has made my family exteremly unconfortable with the entire situation. I feel if they are intellegent enough to contact a step sister in South Carolina in search of me, why are they unable to find my address to contact me if they were unable to reach by phone. I live only two hours away from their office.Desired Settlement: Stop the harrassing phone calls to my family members and contact me using the information that I contacted them with
Review: I received a call this afternoon from a person named [redacted] who stated he was calling on behalf of Attorney Kevin Shine about a legal matter involving my mother. I inquired as to what this may be and he proceeded to state that it was a legal matter and he could not discuss it. When I insisted to know why because my parents live in a different state than I, he told me to call my father's cell phone and that he left a message for him. When I stated I don't know why he would do that because my father is ill, he became very rude and began to raise his voice and said he"didn't care if I gave her the message or not and found it hard to believe that I couldn't get in touch with my mother" I told him that he was very rude and I didn't appreciate him calling my residence about my parents and not explaining what the problem is...he then hung up the phone on me.
Review: A representative from the law office contacted me on June 25, 2013 at approximately 10:30 am. He would not initially tell me who he was but stated that he was trying to get a contact number for my sister. I told him I would not give out such personal information without knowing who he was. He was very rude in his reply and stated that he was from Kevin Z Shine Law office and that it would be in my sister's best interest. When I told him that I would not give out her information when I did not know who he was he became irate, He told me that obviously I was not listening because he told me where he was from. I told him that be that as of may, I still did not know who they were, what they wanted, or why they needed her contact info. He stated that he could not give me that information because of the federal law. I told him that I could not help him then and proceeded to ask how he was able to get my information as this is my cell phone. He said that I reported my cell phone number on 3/19/2013. I asked him if he was saying that I gave HIM my cell ohone number on that date and again the attitude insued. He told me that my phone number was public record and that it's pretty easy to get a ohone number. I said if it's that easy, then why can't you get my sister's number. He told me I was being difficult and that I should understand that I would be helping my sister if I gave him the number. I told him I could not and hung up.
Review: Personal information was left on a family members phone. I was unaware that this debt had gone to collection as I was making payments to the original creditor on line which were coming out of my bank account.my personal information was shared,I have received no documentaion with regaurd to this debt.When I called, [redacted] stated that the documentation I requested could be faxed or emailed to me. I requested that it be mailed. she stated they would not do this, I mentioned that it is my legal right to have this documentaion,she again stated she would only email it.She than trasfered me to [redacted] whom sounded as if he was speaking from his cell phone,multiple times he cut in and out of conversation,he stated we were on a recorded line, when I stated that my personal rights had been violated as information regaurding my personal debt was now shared with a family member.He stated they have a right to research and people that may know me in attempts to find me. I guestion this pratice and am also sending complaint through the NY State Attorney general office,I beleive this to be predatory,as I was not contacted at my home number or adress first. [redacted] did state that they will mail me documentaion and apon receiving this I will than contact him directly.They had all my personal information, why would the not use this info first. Harassing and predatory practice period.Desired Settlement: personal info sholud not be shared...
Review: I was contacted by a person representing themselves as "Kevin Shine" calling for my sister. I was told that they were on retainer and were attempting to get in touch with her about litigation. After further inquiry, they responded they are a debt collection practice and were attempting to locate my sister. They had my UNPUBLISHED phone number (also on the DO NOT CALL list) as well as another number. As I was unable to confirm their identity, I took their contact information and would provide to my sister directly.
Review: I received an initial telephone call on April 3, 2013. On the telephone call the representative indicated who she was ([redacted]) and that this was an attempt to collect a debt. The representative then asked me if I was aware that I was in default with my student loan with Sallie Mae with the outstanding balance being $676.00. I indicated that I was unaware that my loans were in repayment status, because the rest of my student loans were in deferment. She indicated that she could settle the debt that day for $508.00. I indicated that I was unable to pay that today, and was willing to get on a payment arrangement. She then indicated that I could pay $200+ for 3 months. I told her that I could not afford that right now due to me taking care of an ailing family member. At this point, I was told by her that "I don't have any options and I take whatever option she offers me!" I indicated that I was WILLING to pay $100 a month, and she told me that I couldn't do that. I then told her that I don't have $200+ per month to pay her at this time. She then pulled up my credit report and started chastising me like I was her child on my other debt that I had that had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the debt she was trying to collect. She then responded "fine, I will just indicate on your account your refusal to pay and send it through! Good luck!" and hung up the phone on me. On April 8, 2013, I received another call. This time it was from a representative named Brandon. I informed him that I spoke with the representative last week and I briefed him on the conversation and the amount I could afford and the options she gave me. He then started over talking me stating "do you know what legal procedures we can take? Do you know once it goes on we can sue you and put a judgment on you and garnish your wages?" I indicated that I was WILLING to make an arrangement, but I could not afford the terms they were offering. He then began shouting at me again and stated "well I will just start the process and you have a good day!" Who are these people that they think they can talk to someone any kind of way? And what powers that be give THEM the right to determine what I can and CANNOT afford??Desired Settlement: I would like a formal apology from the law office of Kevin Shine for his rude and unprofessional representatives. I would also like a payment arrangement established that I could pay the amount of $100 a month. Additionally, I do not want any of the reps contacting me that do not know how to communicate with another ADULT, and think they have a place to reprimand a consumer! If they were more professional, I am most certain that more issues would be resolved with the initial phone call.
