Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good?
My husband received a phone call yesterday at his place of work (how they got this phone number is beyond me)from a representative at Beneficial Finance. They asked for me by name, stated I had an account, and would not give my husband any further information stating that his name was not on the account. They gave him a toll free number for me to call. When I called the toll free number - I was asked for my account number. Never hearing of this company before in my life, I did not have one - they then asked for my social security number. I said "absolutely not!". I told the representative that their company called for me, disturbed my husband at his work place, stated it was about an account I did not have... and I would like to know what information this is based on. Said they called a phone number and had my name.. they should be able to look up the account with that information. She said I was nowhere in her computer, and she could not look it up without my account number or social security.
I recently opened a business, and have been dealing with soliciting phone calls left and right. I hope this was not such an attempt... especially upon stating I already had an account with them to my husband! It also scares me that they are asking for my social security number when I call.. they had my name and telephone number.. they called me. I makes me wonder how many people just go ahead and give them their social security number.
