Third Party Debt Collection
CFPB Sub product: Other (i.e. phone, health club, etc.) --- CFPB Issue Type: Debt is not mine --- What Happened: I paid one year internet as a gift at another person's home. Got email notice to settle his copyright matter. I paid the $20. Then they started with robot calls, emails and a letter trying to collect another $280 even though I said it was a third party. I demanded they cease harassing me. I even paid the $280 (extortion). Not my IP address or service provider! Again an arrogant email asking me to contact them about unpaid claims. I should not have to put up with unwanted calls from anyone. --- Fair Resolution: Refund of all payments, apology for false accusation and harassment. Guarantee to never contact or harass me or my wife again or pay $5000 per future violation of the donotcall registry.

MAIL: The consumer's complaint was forwarded to us by the PA State AG. He received a call from Rightscorp, Inc, telling him that they seek out and monitor peer-to-peer file sharing networks for illegal downloading. They claim that someone in this house used a torrent program to download music illegally, and that he must pay $100. He argued with them, but never paid. He seems convinced it is a real company after researching it.

I am being harrassed by Rightscorp for an infringment that was placed on my fiance through his ip address. The infringement was not on me I only called them to try and find out what this was about as we do not download anything. Since I called them in trying to be helpful and find out the information they are continuously calling demanding that I give them the ip address and money. I have never recieved a notice so I do not know the ip address as this was not on me nor in my name. The phone calls are becoming harrasment and I cant tolerate it any longer they are affecting my work my home life and my sanity. I cant give them information I do not have. If they sent the notice they should have it while demanding money from me. Please help me to get this to stop. I refuse to pay them a dime and even if I was willing to they cant link it to any notice as I dont have the ip address. It makes no sense. What do I do? Thank you. Other-Other Update

I received notification from my internet provider that a report had been made of illegally download. I contacted Charter who offer no assistance they were "only relaying a message" I then contacted the RIGHTSCORP. I was hesitant to give them information but was coerced into giving them our name and phone number. Initially they said they wanted 20.00 or else they would sue us for 150,000.00 dollars. I told them I had checked with the entire family and they did not believe they had downloaded these songs. She , Cecilee, called back and stated the charges were now 180.00. I was able to determine that a family friend had potentially downloaded music from what he thought was Google Play. I retuned a call to Cecilee who continues to insist an 180.00 dollars. I explained that the young man had done this in error and that he makes minimum wage working at the (b)(6) in Ludington Michigan. She continue to attempt to extort 180.00 from us. I feel that this is inappropriate. I will have the network in my home secured but there is little else I can do. I offered to settle for 50.00, (against my better judgment but they continued to refuse) My concern is that these sites are not clearly mark and they take no responsibility for misleading these young people. Please help (b)(6)
