Received call from number which sends me an E-mail notice. When I called the number, the system voice states, "Thank you for calling 'Performance.' Your call may be recorded." Then, a different voice informs you, "If you know the extension of your representative, press 1; otherwise press 2 and I will collect some information to transfer your call." Pressing 2, you are then asked by the second voice, "Please enter the account number printed on your letter or your social security number followed by the pound sign and someone will be right with you. If this call is not regarding your account, 'Press zero.'
When you finally reach an actual person and inquire about who is Performance, they inform you they are not at liberty to say. I finally went thru very calmly and got to speak to one "Pam Holland...in Texas"...at least this what she told me. She further informed me after my direct question about the number being involved in a payday loan collection scam, she further told me they deal with 'Business Portfolios' and are a legitimate company. Hmmmm....you be the judge!
