Bill collectors. They need Jesus
It Dum rude bill collectors
They call several times a day from several different 847-994 numbers. They never leave a message. The caller ID says Portfolio Recovery Associates. A friend of mines said that they called him 18 times in a row and when he finally did talk to someone they were very rude. They told him that he owe $500 in a loan but refuse to say for which company. He requested that they send this in writing with the creditors name and account number (this is the law) and they said that they couldn't do it. So he told them he couldn't pay them. They threaten to send the police out to his home and have him arrested and he told them to go ahead and do so. They got mad and said they were serious if he didn't pay his debt and he told them to go ahead send the police out. They hung up. Of course they didn't send any police out. Don't pay them any money if they can't send you in writing who the creditor is and the account number!!
I have received up to 8 calls a day usually starting about 7:45 EST, they are ugly, leave no message just a nuisance. Like we have nothing better to do but to answer their phone calls. I did repost this to the Attorney General’s office and was told you can now file a consumer abuse suite with them. Also write a note to the phone company and report ALL nuisance calls. Especially ones that you try to block and they keep going around the block with different numbers. You can only block so many numbers and they know this. Report all the numbers most are OUT OF SERVICE numbers if you try to redial them.
Sam not leaving message
called today @ 8:02 am, again @ 11;03, 11;34, 12;21pm, 1;04pm, 1;35 pm, no messages left
Never heard from them and they started calling today. Internet searches show they are a particularly scummy debt collector who likes to make up debt and try to scare you into paying. I told them they had the wrong number.
I am in the same position. they are calling me multiple times per day. i even try to pick up and tell talk to them, but no one is ever there. they often ask me to accept a collect call, and i just did, because i am sick of this company calling me....and no one was on the other end. disturbing.
They are trouble maker
Call several times a day every day, never leaves a message. Caller id says Portfolio Recovery.
This number and several others starting with 847-994-??? call all the time. Per this site and other "who's calling you" sites, this is an unscrupulous creditor who uses illegal methods to harrass peopel. Every time I block a number they call from another and I have to start blocking them all over.
this tel# call people ugly?
This is PORTFOLIO RECOVERY ASSOCIATES. They are a bottom feeder collection group. This company acts like you have an account with them i.e. a loan. They will report on your credit report as if you took a loan out with them. They will threaten litigation against you if you don't pay. I would disregard their call. DONT LET THEM SCARE YOU INTO PAYING THEM!
The caller left no message.
Same - They left no messages. When I called the number back they sounded like a collections company.
This number is from "Portfolio Recovery Associates", they are one of many underlings of the corrupt banking system. They want a piece of you and claim they are working for those who claim, usually illegally, that you "owe" them.You should probably disregard their calls as they most likely are breaking the law in the first place, I.E. FDCPA, etc.Or read the FDCPA and find out how they are breaking the law so you can sue them for damages. It is extremely unlikely that they are NOT breaking the law. All the "collection" companies break these laws.
