Just recieved a letter from Convergent Outsourcing, Inc located at Houston, TX 77043 regarding the debt with the compaby I had never had any account with.Convergent does not even my full name right.

They say I owe over $2,000 and they are willing to settle at 50%. I have just recieved a credit approval for mortgage, so it is a scam! I think people like me should try to see them in court and get compensation for punitive damages!

They also called my cel - I never talked to them as I thought it was a wrong number!Should I report them to DA? 2ea84cc

I just received a phone call from a lady who asked if she could have the number that I was contacted on. I asked who she was. She said Ms. Rawlings. I asked what company she was with. She said Convergent Outsourcing. I asked what they wanted. She asked again if she could have the number I was contacted on. I said no.

The same day I received a letter in the mail from Convergent Outsourcing saying I owe $166.60 on an account that they would settle for 70%. I do not even have an account with that company.

I just had a refi too. I think this is where they get their info. I will check my credit reports to make sure they are not messing with my credit!

I received 2 letters recently, 1 of which was a paypal account that I am supposedly behind on. Funny thing is that I have a paypal account but do not use the pay later or their credit card so there is no way possible that it can be behind. Definite a scam so do not call, and especially do not give them any money at all

convergent also has called me and sent me letters and I do not know how they got my number or address which most places now a days will sell your number and address for compensation, this is a fraud, they always ask for 50 per cent.

I, too, was contacted by these people by telephone. I have perfect credit, but also just had a re-fi done, so this is apparently where they get their list, and our personal information.

They tried to get me to verify my name and SS#, which I wouldn't do. They never even got to their scam with me because I was furious that they called my home about 22 times over a 2-week period. Since I work from home, I got tired of it and finally picked up the phone. These people are so creepy, they know your name when you call. What I've done is called them non-stop for 2 days now telling whoever will listen that they are working for a company that is scamming people and they should Google Convergent and look at what they are doing to people. One woman said to me, "I don't know how to respond to this." I told her to read the BBB complaints and think about what they are doing to people. When I call THEM (which really rattles them), they always say things like "is this ____ ____," trying to get my name. I wish everyone would hound them back, it's unconscionable what a scam this is.

I've been receiving calls at my place of employment with them using my maiden name, demanding that I verify my physical home address. I've asked the agent for his name, spell it out for me, why are you calling me. They won't talk to me since I won't give my address. Hey!! You called ME, right? Don't you have that information. Let's just tattoo "Dummy" on my forehead. I've tried to give them my attorney's phone number & they refuse to take it. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE??? Enough is enough. I wish all the rest of us smart folks well. Good Luck my fiends. Eve

my husband received a letter asking for payment having his name asking for his last four of his ssn and then requesting a letter written in his own hand to confirm he had not account with this bank in texas. our phone is restricted and I am filing a police report with the fraud unit. I am a senator's grand daughter and from a family of lawyers if they will go after my husband they will go after anyone.

I just got a letter from Convergent saying I owe $255 for Dish Network but they'll settle for half. We are in the process of buying a house and, after reading other notes below, that is probably what triggered these a-holes. Luckily I knew I was in good standings. To be clear -THIS IS FRAUD. Do not pay them. Would love for someone to post proper way to report these guys.

Yep, I just received a letter for an account I had with my ex husband with my old name on it from 14 years ago. Let's say it's been long since paid. I tried to call both of the phone numbers on the letter that I just got and they are both changed or disconnected. Yes, fraud.
