Don't know why they don't leave message
If they can get you to acknowledge the debt even if it is 20 yrs ago they get a new clock. Just deny the debt or better yet don't answer the phone.
They are trying to collect a debt that is 1) over 10 years old and 2) I have no record of ever having this so-called debt. Not sure if they are legit. Won't give me a # to call back or send me info..
Called on a Sunday at 5:30. Which isRude and inconsiderate didn't answer
they just called, I did not answer
no message, calls once a week
Recovery Portfolio Services as others have said. Illegally attempting to collect a debt where the statute of limitations has expired. Next call is to the FTC to file a formal complaint against them.
Recovery portfolio services: these people hire just about anyone...I'm a dentist and I tried to explain to them that they have the wrong #. I'm absolutely positive I don't owe anyone a dime. Very unprofessional and will be hearing from my lawyer soon as I recorded their whole conversation, I will try my best to shut this company down, as I already filed 3 different law suits for harassment in IL, CA, & FL against them on April 3, 2013. And they just called me again today!! Can you believe it???

Bill collector calls me twice a day. I don't even have any debt they claim I do. Looking for wronge person.
didn't answer....didn't leave voicemail either
I don't owe this debt collector or any other debt collector. I'm not the person they're looking for.
FYI. These are debt collectors. They have purchased your debt for pennies on the dollar. If you owe a debt , I encourage you to pay it. However, I have been there, done that. I am very familiar with the FDCRA. If you owe a debt for less than $100, it is not recoverable. If a collector contacts you via phone, and you answer, your file then again becomes active from that day forward for another 7 years. That is how it remains on your credit report for so long. It is considered last point of contact. Every time you talk or speak just one word to a collector, it then moves it forward another seven years. Just FYI.
Calling me about a debt from '95...I WAS A FRESHMAN IN HIGHSCHOOL DUMBASS!!!!
U would think after 13 years they would quit calling
Full of ****!!!!!!
Call my phone repeatedly and ask for the guy who had this # before me. I tell them repeatedly who I am, even went so far as to file police report. Still they call.
Just read this stuff!
They call but do not have the decency to leave a message. SPAMMER
A bunch of LOW life **** that don't know how to leave a message. Next time they call I will blow a loud whistle into the phone and hope they split their eardrums

Legally after 7 years, the dept is NO LONGER COLLECTABLE! Why don't this companies think about that BEFORE they buy my $9.46 debit?
A bunch of **** **** sucking on their mothers gapping ****. **** all debit collectors.
Probably bill collector. She would not tell me why or what company she was calling from. Just kept asking are you Mr xxxxxxxx

Collector I guess. I don't answer outta state calls. Tards!!!
Ya.. Like Iam really going to pay..
Trying to collect on a 10 year old debt that has already been written off. Don't answer.
these people think they can collect on a debt that is 14 yrs old really lost cause they need to stop harrassing us
These IDIOTS SUCK THE BIG ONE !
Calls me about a debt that has been settled! Morons; illegal, too.
Ok, I'm going to tell you guys about these people. These people are 3rd party credit buyers, in otherwords they buy loans from companies, that are old and written off. They believe that they can still collect on old credit card that got written off or were not paid. The company is Recovery Portfolio, and yes they are persistant. I would go to AnnualCreditReport.com and look at your credit report, yes it's free from all 3 bureau's. Then, if it not on your credit report, I would check into your own states laws about the cutoff from anybody trying to collect the bill. I'm in Texas and it's exactly 4 years after the debt became closed for that particular bill, whatever it may be, mine was Capital One Credit Card group. Old President Bush stuck us with them the collectors trying to harrass us to pay our outstanding bills, even though they were written off. Sorry this is so long. Do not ever tell these people that it is your bill otherwise if its not on your credit report and you tell them that it is yours, they can in turn put it back on your credit report and it will stay there for 7 to 10 years. Just ignore them and if you can block their number from your phone.
Idiot. Called my house.
One of many numbers these guys use to bug the crap out of me. If they don't just hang up, they ask for some person I've never heard of. I've had this number 8+ years. Have told them repeatedly I don't know the person they want; they continute calling.
the Biggest jerks, call 5 a day
they just wanted money and i **** the **** off
calls 5 or more times a day once they have your #...doesn't care if one no longer resides or not
Pond scum salvage debt collector

This number has called me repeatedly over the past few days on a new line that we recently added. Whenever we pick up, they immediately hang up, so we called them back and asked them to remove us from their list, and they were extremely rude and unhelpful.
Portfolio Recovery Associates
THEY CALL SEVERAL TIMES, BUT LEAVE NO MESSAGE.
Here we go again..mercy don't they ever give up..what a bunch of sharks mis-using the phone by stalking people.
They didn't say nothing
Portfolio Recovery. They call several times per week. I stopped answering the phone when I see their number on my caller ID.
Portfolio Recov # 757-961-3544. They call all hours of the day and night and use several phone #'s. And never leave a message
Refused to identify themselves and continually asked if I were Ms. "X".
Still receiving robo calls from them...this is nothing but illegal stalking.
They call my home phone as well as my cell phone sometimes up to 5 or 6 times a day. They never leave a message and I want this stopped. The one time I did answer the phone they were trying to find someone who I don't even know. I asked them to put me on their DNC list but they still blow up both of my phones. They are very rude people and I told the person I spoke with that they must have a pretty miserable life to be so verbally abusive to people, they hung up on me, of course. But, they continue to call me several times a day.
Will not give their name until you agree that you are whoever they are seeking. Calls 6 times a day!!!!
Bill collector do not care if person they are looking for does not own this phone they just keep calling. They say this is the number we have so we will keep calling.
They keep calling my home phone using various phone numbers..my number is only 2 weeks old..jeeze..what is their problem??
Wrong number keep calling me
Portfolio recovery associates
Person keeps calling for someone who doesn't have this number
I never have to set my alarm, because Portfolio Recovery always wakes me up!They alway call early mornings and throughout the day. This is very frustrating.I pick up and hang up. Sooner or later I hope the calls will stop, hope sooner...
Portfolio Recov # 757-961-3544. They call all hours of the day and night and use several phone #'s.
calls all hour of day or night. no one answers when you answer the phone.
They call under so many different numbers. Portfolio Recovery never say anything. BLOODCLOTS!!!!
Portfolio Recovery - A debt collector that is not registered with the ACA.
They call here (K.C. Mo.) on my home phone day after day. Because I do not know who they are or what they want, I let the answering machine pick up...and they say nothing. If it is indeed a collection agency, I owe no one anything, even from years back. My bills are paid and up to date. I am glad I have not answered!!I just want these calls to STOP!!!!!!!!!!
they keep calling and calling. dont know why and they do not leave a messg. I had told them stop calling, no one at the other end says anything at all back
You can file a complaint by e-mail ([email protected]), telephone 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322) voice or 1-888-TELL-FCC (1-888-835-5322) TTY, by fax to 1-866-418-0232, via our electronic complaint form at httlinksnotallowed://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm, or mail. For the FCC to process your complaint you must either fill in the electronic form completely or otherwise indicate:
I have asked this company to stop calling me. The person they are looking for does not reside at my address. I asked to be put on their do not call list to no avail. The collector I spoke with was not professional at all, and in conversation and attitude left his employer open to fines and litigation. A complaint to the FCC is a number one priority in regards to this company.
I do not understand why this company is allowed to operate. They have a bank of phone numbers that they call from, do not leave messages, call several times a day, and yet no complaints to the FCC?
STOP CALLING! I am on the Do Not Call List!!!
They people need to STOP calling here. I have no outstanding debts or have any credit problems.
Portfolio Recovery according to CID.
I can always count on them to MAKE MY DAY!!! Pick up and hang up so they will still be charged if these are paid by call collectors.
they dont leave a message or if you answer they dont say anything, its like stalking!!
They keep calling and it is annoying!
i am filing a complaint on each phone call i get. this one was on 3/4/10 5.12pm. portfolio recover it shows on caller id. this must stop!!!
They people need to STOP calling here. I have no outstanding debts or have any credit problems. This is a real pain. They call all the time. Ive disconnedtec my answering machine because of people like this.
i'm on a do not call list with a private number
They call me from all different phone numbers up to 9 pm i have told them not to call but they tell me they can do what they want to stop their calls i need to sent a letter I dont even know who they are or where they are located I had to turn off my voicemail They need to be stopped
The collector is calling about a debt that occured while I was incarcerated, the woman who racked up the bill has since died, the bill is 11 years old. I have asked them to stop calling but they wont.
I do not owe any money to anyone, why are they calling me daily from several different numbers? So annoying!!!!
I receive calls all the time (sometime several in one day) and have asked for documentation to be mailed to my home SEVERAL TIMES. They said the mailing would look like junk mail when it arrived and to date they've not provided any information. I was told last week I would be put on a No Call list, but now I'm on an automated call list. What do I need to do to stop this?
These very rude people keep calling and calling, even after I have told them I do not owe them any money.
I don't know how these poeple are. I don't know why a portfolio recovery was calling me for because I don't owe money to anyone.
These people keep calling. 1/14-9.21am/1/14-8.47pm/1/116-12.53pm/1/17-6.06p/1/30-8.04am/ This needs to stop. There is no one here that requires them to be calling here.
Get calls from this number, 1-757-961-3544 on Sundays, I do not answer and they leave no message. I do not know anyone in Norfolk, Virginia.
Calls are received on a weekly basis from this number, the debt they say they are trying to collect is not valid. I have asked them to mail documentation, but have not received any. What can be done to stop these people from calling?
This number calls once a day at least, I never answer, they never leave a voicemail. Today they called twice, just now and at 9:46 am. If it's so important to call twice, why no messages?
Calls almost everyday, several times throughout the day. Never leaves a message and when you answer they hang up. This is annoying. I don't know who this is and if it is a collection agency they do not have my permission to call my number.
continuous phone calls to my cell will not leave message
Dont know who they are and dont care. I dont answer 800, unkn caller, pvt nos or anyone I don't know. They are a nusiance and need to stop calling here.
Be aware this company will try to call you from several different #'s. Another # they have called me from is
Called requesting information on me and I requested they remove my number and not to call again. I have no idea what they were collecting for. Very rude person and said they would remove my number.
Calls everyday never leaves message.
My nbr is on the do not call list
I don't know who this is, but they call at 8am on a weekend, and 8pm on weekdays, leave no message and are very rude when I do pick up. Clearly the are looking for someone else...
I keep receiving calls from this number 757-961-3544 and they won't stop.
Stop calling all hours
This number calls early in the morning before I leave for work. I decide to call from my office to find out who is calling, and its Portfolio Recovery "a debt
collector". No one in my household has any debt in default, so you can bet we'll never pick up the call

Portfolio Recovery, leave us alone!!! We don't owe any debt! How many numbers do they have?!

Caller refused to identify what organization they were from. Calling my house, I have a right to know who is using my resources and tying up my time and waking my kids!
They do not leave a message and the calls are monotonous.
I called Portfolio Recovery Services Corporate number at 1-888-772-7326 (local) 757-519-9300. I spoke to a very rude girl in customer service and told them not to call again and that if they did I would be filing harrasment charges against them. She told me to go ahead and do that and to call the poh-leese now. They need to stop harrassing people!
I received a call last night. The girl asked to speak to Jaime "something and I told her she had the wrong number. She asked again. I told her it was the wrong number. She then asked how long I had the number. I then told her it was the wrong number and hung up.I contacted my local phone company to see if there was a way to block the calls. (This is the 2nd from them) They said no. I am also on the Do Not Call list and have filed complaints with them. (Like that does any good)There's nothing you can do to stop them from calling short of threatening to file a harrasement suit against them with your local police and their local police.If they call again I will definitely tell them I'm filing a complaint.
Hung up when I answered.
Stated I owe from wireless account I have never hade wireless account with. Spoke to women first, than a man "Supervisor" both very rude. Supervisor threatening to take legal action against me if I disbute this, since I am refusing to pay.
12 years ago my wife went through a divorce with her first husband. They had a credit card with charges of $5000.00 that went unpaid. My wife, after the court hearing was found responsible for half ($2500). She then contacted the credit card company and they were so happy to hear from the pay off amount was less then $2000.00. She paid off the card and that was that.About 5 years ago, we started getting calls from Portfolio Recovery saying she still owed the money. She even faxed than showing the debt was paid. The calls stop for a few months, but they have been calling again, and again, and for the past 3 years, they call, and call and call. Can you believe that? Just like the previous posters say, these guys are complete scammers.
Debt collection from bankruptcy over 20 years old!!
THIS IS MOST DEFINITELY A PORTFOLIO-RECOVERY OR OTHER TYPE OF ILLEGAL-SCHEME SCAM-CALLER. DO NOT ANSWER, BLOCK THE CALL, DO NOT RESPOND OR GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION IN ANY WAY. YOU ARE ONLY WORKING AGAINST YOURSELF IF YOU DO! I WARN YOU- "PORTFOLIO RECOVERY" IS A BUNCH OF THREATENING, LYING SCUM THAT BULLY PEOPLE, LIE TO THEM, AND TRY TO COLLECT ANCIENT DEBTS THAT ARE LEGALLY UNCOLLECTABLE - I.E. YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY! THEY CAN'T SUE YOU!
Call continuously regarding a credit card I never had. Don't leave a message but I picked up and told the woman that called that it wasn't my bill/account and do not call again. That does not work because they keep on calling!
Portfolio Recovery is NOT a scam. I have done business with them regarding old debt. They were easy to work with and were legit.
Not a scam my A$$,Kp must work for them
These people call every day 4-5 times at all hours and even on Sunday and never say a word. How can I stop these calls?
THEY CALL AS UNKNOWN AND THEY CALL OVER AND OVER AND NEVER LEAVE A MESSAGE.WHO ARE THEY AND WHY ARE THEY CALLING!!!!!!!!!
I get these calls as well, but I just ignored them. THey also use the phone numbers 7579613544, 8778030008,7579613546,8669407640, 7573216281,7573216280. Its ridiculous.
I received a call from Chad from Portfolio Recovery today, what a joke. I would not "verify" any of my personal information to an unknown caller, he affirmed that he was from a publicly traded company and I could check my newspaper to verify that, when I continued to deny his requests he then proceeded to read back to me my full Social Security Number (without verification that I was me.) He said that they had purchased a debt from US Cellular which until today I had no knowledge of. After some coaxing I was able to get a vital piece of information, this alleged debt was from 1999, I thought it very odd to receive a collection call for a debt from 10 years ago. So, I took this guy's rudeness to attempt to see if this was a valid debt or not, but that stopped when I asked him if he would provide an unknown caller with payment information for an unverified debt, his reply to me was, "I take care of my bills and am on top of my debts." At that point I had enough and hung up on Chad.I then called back the number on my caller id and spoke to the woman who answered (no name provided,) she was very apologetic for Chad's rudeness and attested that his conduct was uncommon for the company. She then tried to get me to give my SSN, but I refused and she settled on taking my phone number. I supplied my new mailing address and informed her that I would not pay anything until I see some documentation on the debt. She apologized once again and then hung up.
I just started getting calls from this company yesterday. I added their number to my blocked numbers (check w/your phone service to see if you can block numbers. I have comcast for my home phone service you can just dial *60 and wait for the prompts to add numbers on your block call list, once you add a number they can no longer get through to you).
I just submitted a response to 757-961-3544. The number just came in again. No message and hung up. I do not know how they do this, but there are many numbers that they use. Do not be fooled by these unknown callers. Protect yourself and people around you.Dani
I just started getting calls from this company a few days ago so I added their number to my blocked numbers (I have comcast for my home phone service you can just dial *60 and wait for the prompts to add numbers on your block call list, once you add a number they can no longer get through to you).
I keep getting this on my cell phone and I don't know where they got my number because I rarely give it out. Anyway, now that I know its a scam, I will put it on my blocked list.
how do you put this number on cell phone block list?thanks
Portfolio Recovery is a Jamican Phone Scam. There are many numbers that they use to get you to bite. If you answer just one of these calls it will tell you to call another number. Not only do you get charged for the minute that you answer the call that gives you another number to call, but if you are as foolish and naive as I was you will end up getting a bill in upwards of $200. I suggest that if this happens call your provider immediately and let them know that this was part of a jamican phone scam. AT&T had remarkable service. They issued a credit memo and within a month the charges were taken off of my bill. The downside to the bogus numbers is that there are many more. My rule of thumb at my house, is that unknown name or blocked calls or even numbers that show up on your caller id with unknown origin....DONT ANSWER IT! You may have to pay. BEWARE and keep this site alive. It has saved me many times.Thank you and good night!Concerned.
Alysha, refused to tell me who she represented. I got angry and she wondered why.
I wonder why? I also have caller ID and found out that it was Portfolio Recovery Services. Why they call my number is strange.
These people are idiots and certianly ignorent of the law!! Keep calling and you will know the LAW!
Always leaves the same message-This is an attempt to collect a debt and all info will be used for that purpose. I have no debt and when I call back it is unavailable.
They call and don't leave a message. They buy debts as old as 25 years and add interest to get you to pay something that was taken care of already. They are the scum of the earth and should be run out of business.
Caller Id comes up with this #, but, Unknown name. I will never answer the phone if I don't know who's calling. If it's a collection agency, they should still ID themselves.
didn't leave msg
CALLS EVERYDAY SEVERAL TIMES A DAY. PLEASE stop...........never leaves a message
Call never leave message...
Stop the calls
call after call after call!!!
I JUST RECEIVED THIS CALL, I DID NOT ANSWER AND THEY HUNG UP BEFORE ANS. MACHINE COULD PICKUP. NO MESSAGE LEFT.D6
just call over and over again
This is certainly Portfolio Recovery Assoc. a debt collection agency that tries to collect debts that are WAY beyond the Statute of Limitations and so are uncollectable in Court. DO NOT RESPOND TO THEM IN ANY WAY - DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM - JUST HANG UP AND LOG THE CALL - THEY TRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE ELDERLY AND POORLY-INFORMED PEOPLE. They are DISGUSTING bottom-feeders!
