Sunrise Debt Collector Reviews:
A Redditor wrote that his score dropped by a whopping 60 points due to Sunrise Debt Collector reporting overdue to Credit Bureaus!
In such a situation, the customers were bound to callback Sunrise Debt Collector to get the details of their overdue amounts and information about the company they need to pay. However, Sunrise Debt Collector could not provide a drill-down about the due amount. Instead, Sunrise Debt Collector representatives pitched in to collect the credit card details of the customers to post an authorization charge of $1 under the banner of verifying the customer’s particulars.
This was the plot of the recent Sunrise Credit Services Scam!
Plot of the Sunrise Debt Collector Scam:
When the customers questioned why they needed to provide credit card details, the representative said they needed to run a credit check. The customers were annoyed as they did not want to pay $1 for running a credit check, which actually does not require an authorization amount to be placed on the credit card. The credit check can be done with the customer’s personal details, such as name, address, and SSN.
The representative informed that $1 is towards the expense of doing business! If the customers provide their credit card information, it will be on Sunrise Debt Collector’s database.
