Seems to happend a lot thank you for trying on helping us in this way, had a few experiences with dept collect that charge me like big companies like bright house toke advantage of me and toke cash out of pocket and charge me for service I never used being trying to fight it because it has mess up my credit and my load rates on new car and seems like things always pop up in credit report that I never know where there from is frustrating when big companies takes advantage of us trying to build credit for better life and business opportunity or even better jobs

Mr. Derek Jones (720)-252-4082)says he work with Resource Center. Advance my sister a loan. The following day applied was approved. The next day I received several text messages asking for my sister to return his call. Never mentioning when my loan would be available. I then spoke with Mr. Jones and decided I did not want his loan. From this day forward I have a had numerous phones and threatening text messages to my phone regarding my sister loan. Mr. Jones has called my job numerous times, my brother and my references. Something has to be done about this harrassament I do not receive a loan from this man or his company. I should not be harrassed.
