Who is 855-245-7098?
In online forums, many complaints state that the phone calls received from 855-7098 come from Transworld Systems Incorporated, a debt collection agency.
Transworld Systems Incorporated remains one of the largest debt collectors in the United States.
Are 855-245-7098 Legitimate Collectors?
While collection agencies do tend to contact debtors for unpaid balances, one of the issues is whether the phone calls are actually coming from Transworld agents.
The first thing to note, the phone number listed on the tsico.com website for questions or concerns regarding any phone calls or letters coming from them is 1-877-865-7686, not 855-245-7098
Many complaints on callercenter.com mention unprofessional behavior from the agents, several being FDCPA violations.
- Attempting collections on false debts.
- Claiming they are unable to send any information by mail (example: validation of debt notice).
- Refusing to provide any information regarding the debt.
- Making excessive phone calls each day.
- Contacting family members (beyond a spouse) when the alleged debtor requests no further contact by phone.
Even odder, some complaints mention the agents calling on behalf of collections while others receive sales calls for extended car warranties, both coming from 855-245-7098.
This number, along with a local phone number and some out of state phone numbers call multiple times a day, every day. It is the same thing all the time, tryingto sell me an extended car warranty for a car I no longer own….BoyMom on shouldianswser.com
With such incertitude, it’s best to take precautions and request a debt validation notice by mail and not take any further calls. Be sure also to verify your credit reports for any unknown additions.
