5-5-2015....Also did a call back twice to get the instant message that it belonged to a skype user. First call back the dude was pressing for my name. Provided first name only and asked what the business was. Dude got more agitated and sounded Oriental but possibly Indian in descent. I hung up. Sent a text message back and now got a message 24 hours later calling me a dick-wad and saying something about my dog being in his yard and should he come down to talk to me. It appears by doing a google search for the number that others dating back years have had a similar issue.

Skype What it is the person that is calling you is on a computer through Skype services.Three dollars a month I get unlimited PC to landlines or cell. the reason why you can not call this number back is because the person call you have not pay the extra fee to have people call them back from landlines or cell to PC Skype user. If you can not here the person clears is most likely is their mic is junk.I just got this service today and do not know about the scammers using this service or if this service is a scam.

They are a scam!  I just got a phone call on my cell phone from 661-748-0240,  really heavy accent Indian very hard to understand.  He tried to tell me that he was from Microsoft and that I had a virus installed on my computer and it needs to be removed.  He said they sent me an email and I never replied.  I asked him what is the purpose of this phone call?  He said it was just to let me know.  Well I think he just told me that because I wasn't very nice,  I have heard and read about all the scams the Nigerians, Indians out of the country scams that they try and succeed at stealing from innocent people.  I don't have a computer, only at work, and he was trying to give me an ip address.  If i had a computer I wouldn't know if it was my ip address, who memorizes those numbers?  any ways I googled the number after we hung up and sure enough he has taken money from innocent people.  Please don't fall for scammers and never ever give credit card numbers or checking account numbers to anyone on the phone.....

All of you who they are telling they are from England, Germany, India or whatever...that is the first indication of a scam. 661 area code is Bakersfield CA. They are using that number as a turn around in order to hide their real number since that is a skype phone number. All of you that are getting scammed might want to try this...Anytime you get a call from any unknown number do not answer. Instead google the number first and if they are legit= IE no reports filed you can always call them back, preferably from a blocked number. Good Luck all.?

The caller's name is Alex Rozera, or rather that is the name that appears on Caller ID when 661-748-0240 is the originating number.  A second number used is 415-800-4496, which is listed to AvTech, a California-based computer support firm that has operated for about five years, according to their web site.  Although Rozera identified himself as a Microsoft Tech Support employee, I confirmed with Microsoft that neither he nor AvTech have any affiliation with Microsoft.It appears that his game is to call to discuss multiple infections and then sell tech support services to remove them.

This number is the same for any one using Skype. That usually means they are calling from outside the US. It doesn't necessarily mean scam but a bigger company would generally pay for their intl staff to have access to a US number for dialing. So use your own judgement.

FYI this is a SKYPE number. It is shared by hundreds if not thousands of Skype callers. Even though Skype is sometimes used by SCAMMERS, such as the cases listed here, it is certainly possible that someone may call you with this number who is TOTALLY LEGIT. So if you have friends or relatives who use Skype, don't be surprised if this phone number shows up in your caller ID.

From what im reading online and in these forums,so many if us are receiving harassing scam calls from generic untraceable Skype numbers, and Skype customer service is being entirely unhelpful and unwilling to do anything about it. This is beyond poor business practice. It is practically harassment being aided by Skype, and i think we need to send Skype a message about their lack of concern for this. If you are getting calls on a regular basis or at all hours of the day and night from numbers like 661-748-0240  then you know what im talking about. Do not call lists do not work. I suggest either filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and/or discontinuing using Skype and using another similar service. If the BBB receives enough complaints they will take action, and there are many alternative services just like Skype who will take your complaints seriously. On top of all this, Microsoft purchased Skype and has implemented the ability to LISTEN IN ON YOUR SKYPE CALLS. There are several articles on Forbes.com about this. Here is a link to one of them: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericjackson/2012/ ... my-skype-calls/You can just google microsoft listening in on skype to find msny similar stories. That alone should make you want to change services. Here is one link that gives you seversl alternatives to Skype:http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/skype-ju ... p-services/2488Skype should be ashamed, embarassed, and face consequences for their poor handling of this. Sure it may be a small hassle to file a BBB complaint or change services, but not as much of one as receiving constant harrassing scam calls and having your calls snooped on! Dont just lie down and let them get away with this. Let your friends and contacts know as well.

This is not a Skype harassment, it is a regular caller, who able to call bat you can't call back on the same number because the caller have no a phone number. You able to buy with a small fee an account to call from Skype anyone who you like for unlimited. If you invest more, than you able to buy a phone number too from Skype, and use it as a regular phone. Otherwise no one able to return your call. It is so simple. At the beginning I did the same thing, used my Skype to call out, after a year experience I decided it is worth to buy a phone number from Skype.

Got a call yesterday from this number..just happened to notice it as I was checking Caller ID  since we don't have voice mail. The number 661-748-0240 appeared above as "BKFD MAIN, CA.I did not, nor do I plan to, call the number back, but out of curiousity as to its validity, came to this website to check it out. I see that several of you have posted complaints, etc about this number. I'll be ignoring it as I do many others that appear to be scams...next step is to discontinue service!

I received a call from this number on my cell today... no caller ID other than the number.  I don't ever answer a call from a number I don't recognize: 1) all my friends and business clients have my cell number and I meticulously add their names and numbers to the cell database as I receive them so there is no need for me to answer an unknown; 2) if it is a client or someone that really needs to get to me, my voicemail instructs them to leave a phone number and name so I can verify who they are.  In this instance, it was a client of mine with a 'free' 3-month subscription to Skype and he did leave a message so I know where it came from.  My phone now verbally announces "Skype" when the number dials in.  Thanks to other entries on this site, I will also add the other Skype ID's so I know next time.

What do you mean by that?  I have a fixed phone number from skype that I pay for and pay to call landlines and cell phones. You have to have a paid skype account to call landline phones and cell phones. It would not be a random number.  It is only free calling skype to skype and there is no phone number involved there.

This is a Skype number.  Meaning someone is calling your phone from their Skype account, and it the call is routed through this particular number. The number is not owned by any single user but is randomly assigned from a bank of numbers Skype has.  From minute to minute this number might be used by a trusted friend calling you on Skype, or a spammer who is using Skype.  There's no telling.

I'm not sure what you're talking about with SuperAntiSpyware -- it's not a "rogue virus," it's a legitimate program to detect and remove malware and tracking cookies and such. It's listed on Wikipedia and you can check for yourself -- how much "research" did you actually do on this? My guess is they installed a FAKE antivirus program and told you it was SuperAntiSpyware.

An India-based company named DNF Global Solutions.Obviously, this is a well-connected establishment who are "harassing" and scamming people. Read my story and I did file a report. I was locked out of my Hotmail account and I was in this continuous loop. I searched the Internet and came across this company who provided tech support for Hotmail. I contacted them and I was told by this “tech” named Nick Nelson that 227 emails were sent from my computer requesting people’s financial data. I entered a contract with them for 3 years that they would provide all of the tech support for my computer. I later found out that companies like DNF Global Solutions are ripping people off. The name of this company is DNF Global Solutions who are located in India. The “tech” installed this Super AntiSpyware virus, which made my computer slower and infected my computer with viruses; my files were being deleted, uploaded and files were hidden. After I did my research, I learned that was a rogue virus to annoy me and to infect my computer, which it did. The scary part is that they were able to unblock my Hotmail account. I changed all of my passwords. While, I was speaking to them, someone gained access to my online banking account. They became the Administrative of the computer and I have not been able to repair it. I was told to call 866-921-5154 for tech support. They were calling me various phone numbers from 661-748-0244, 661-748-0240, 661-748-0242, 661-380-3000, 661-748-0245, but when I called the numbers back, it did not go through. I thought that was odd. After they failed to answer my questions, I decided to terminate the relationship. I spoke to a manager named Sonya who was shooting the “energy” over the phone. There is no DNF Global Solutions with Mike Hughes as the President. 866-921-5154 is the Toll-free number to an all-inclusive exotic vacation; http://allinclusive-adult-vacations.com/desinaion.htm, as well as, to an India phone number. The phone numbers that the “technicians” were calling from apparently were fraudulent because many people were complaining about how they were unethical telemarketers. My computer has not crashed so the forensics can be obtained off it to get their IP Address so that their illegal activities can be stopped.

This is NOT Microsoft. We got the same phone call and same number. We called Microsoft about it, and they assured us it's a scam. We gave them the name and and phone number that he called from. That number was 231-629-4824. This guy also had a heavy Indian accent. We told him to call back in half hour. The lady from Microsoft gave us a direct number where we could reach her at, cause she wanted to know if he called back or not. NO information was given to him whatsoever. NOW, the strange part, as I'm reading all these responses, is he DID call back half hour later, BUT the phone number showed Skype user 661-748-0240. So we called the Microsoft lady back, and she said evidently the 2 are connected together in some way. She thanked me and said they will investigate this. Oh yes, check this one out also: we couldn't hardly understand him cause of his accent, and we wanted his name. So he said each letter one by one like A as in apple. That way.

"Do you realize that her reversed charges end up costing us money in the aggregate?" is only true if the card companies cannot claw money back from the scammer. Clawback is probable in this case IMO because the scam appears to be ongoing. EVERYTHING the credit card companies and the banks do costs us money in the aggregate. That's how all financial companies handle $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever -- as a cost of doing business. They simply raise interest rates to raise the $amount needed to cover $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever.

You're right- we do need to take responsibility for our own idiocy.  That being so, I encourage you, and others who have commented on the stupidity of those who fell for the scams (and are kindly warning others of them), to consider your own shortcomings.It's not smart to fall for the scams, and I have not, but I daresay it's also not terribly smart to take out loans at a rate of about 22% interest on each one.  I've done that and so have you.  Every person in our "smart" population, who uses a credit card, agrees to that less than smart deal- over and over and OVER again . . .  Each and every transaction on your CREDIT card is a LOAN taken at a SUPER EXORBITANT rate. How smart is that??The banks take from us as much as they can, within the confines of existing law.  Given the rates we pay, I think they can be expected to do a bit more for us than distributing our loan dollars and keeping track of what we owe them.

Hi Joni,You can get your money back by reporting this incident as fraud to your credit card company. Your credit card company should be able to reimburse you for the charge, they will then do a fee reversal on the business that charged the credit card. However, it may be difficult if the "business" has closed their account with whatever credit card company you charged the fee on. This usually does not work for debit cards.

First let me tell you that you should NEVER Give ANY Personal information to someone calling you. 99% of the time it is a scam. If they tell you they are from a big company ask for the toll free number so you can be sure it really is the company, if they give you a phone number Search the number on Google or Bing or whatever search engine you use. You will probably find that the number is a scam line (like this Skype number is. Then call the ACTUAL number for the Company and report the number that called you along with the toll free number they provided to you.Now the important part: GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK!!Get the Credit Card you used to pay the $199. Call the Customer Service # on the back. Listen to the Options  the Automated Prompts for something like:  'Report Fraudulent Charges'  'Dispute a Transaction'Or just plain ole' Customer Service. Once you have a person from your Credit Card Company on the phone tell them that you have been the victim of a Scam, explain how the person called you claiming to be an Employee of Microsoft (Don't say McHelp cause that sounds like McDonalds went into the Help Desk Business and not even remotely like a real company) telling you that your computer was being hacked. Give them any information you have on the Fake Company including phone numbers and emails/email addresses, websites. Tell them that they gained access to your computer remotely and may have all of your personal and financial information.I am assuming that you fell for the same scam that the others are describing.They will probably transfer you to the Fraud Department and they should close the current credit card and issue you a new card with a new number since crooks have your Credit Card Number. MAKE SURE that the info gets forwarded to the Fraud Dept even if they don't transfer you to them, and make sure you tell them you want the charges reversed.If you let the scam artists access your computer you should change the passwords to any important accounts, security codes too. If you do online Banking call your Bank and explain everything to them so they can change your account numbers & issue you new Credit/Debit Card(s). Call ALL Other Credit/Debit Cards that you have used on your computer and get new cards issued from them too.***VERY IMPORTANT*** Make Sure when Contacting ALL the Financial Institutions that you knowingly gave your information or have the information stored on your Computer for.....MAKE SURE THAT There are NO Other Unauthorized Charges!!!

For what it's worth, I just got a call on my cell from this number and I thought the same thing...a scam (which is how I ended up on this site).   However, my husband (traveling in the EU) called about 1 min later on my cell and asked if I was available to Skype.  He confirmed that the call did come from him....he was using his iPad to Skype and that is the number that displayed on my phone.No doubt there ARE scammers out there using this, but if you have friends/family who live far away or who may be traveling, double check with them to make sure it wasn't one of them trying to Skype with you.

I got the same call from a skype number. I didn't pick up the call , so obviously this is someone whois trying to get information or to get access to your computer. phone phreaking isn't uncommon, it could be coming from anywhere. Believe me, if he got an email from a phishing scam fro HSBC bank he would be on the phone with the bank, not you.

9/5/2012. Just got a call from "Mike" from England from skype number 661-748-0240. Said he'd just received a phishing scam email emanating from my website asking for his hsbc bank account number and wanted me to type a url into my computer. I refused as I felt that url may give him access to my computer and that HE may be the scammer. The url ended in ......./index.php. He identified his email as mike.j482@gmail.com, which is no doubt fake.Anyway, seems he is a putrescent pile of scumbag vomit.

You're an IDIOT!  Why do people like to speak on subjects they know nothing about? Either stupid or lazy I guess.The FTC is not supplying free calling lists to commercial telemarketers. FYI: Companies are required by law to pay a stiff fee in order to access the DNC list, there is no choice in the matter. Additionally the fines are quite stiff for Co's who get caught violating the list either by mistake or intentionally.Of course there are plenty of stealth companies out there that dial away as they wish.

The Do Not Call List has become the problem, not the solution. They make the lists available free of charge to telemarketers so they know who not to call. In fact, the FTC is providing telemarketers a list of good, live telephone numbers that they would otherwise have to pay for.

From what im reading online and in these forums,so many if us are receiving harassing scam calls from generic untraceable Skype numbers, and Skype customer service is being entirely unhelpful and unwilling to do anything about it. This is beyond poor business practice. It is practically harassment being aided by Skype, and i think we need to send Skype a message about their lack of concern for this. If you are getting calls on a regular basis or at all hours of the day and night from numbers like 661-748-0240  then you know what im talking about. Do not call lists do not work. I suggest either filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and/or discontinuing using Skype and using another similar service. If the BBB receives enough complaints they will take action, and there are many alternative services just like Skype who will take your complaints seriously. On top of all this, Microsoft purchased Skype and has implemented the ability to LISTEN IN ON YOUR SKYPE CALLS. There are several articles on Forbes.com about this. Here is a link to one of them: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericjackson/2012/ ... my-skype-calls/You can just google microsoft listening in on skype to find msny similar stories. That alone should make you want to change services. Here is one link that gives you seversl alternatives to Skype:http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/skype-ju ... p-services/2488Skype should be ashamed, embarassed, and face consequences for their poor handling of this. Sure it may be a small hassle to file a BBB complaint or change services, but not as much of one as receiving constant harrassing scam calls and having your calls snooped on! Dont just lie down and let them get away with this. Let your friends and contacts know as well.

This is not a Skype harassment, it is a regular caller, who able to call bat you can't call back on the same number because the caller have no a phone number. You able to buy with a small fee an account to call from Skype anyone who you like for unlimited. If you invest more, than you able to buy a phone number too from Skype, and use it as a regular phone. Otherwise no one able to return your call. It is so simple. At the beginning I did the same thing, used my Skype to call out, after a year experience I decided it is worth to buy a phone number from Skype.

I received a call from this number on my cell today... no caller ID other than the number.  I don't ever answer a call from a number I don't recognize: 1) all my friends and business clients have my cell number and I meticulously add their names and numbers to the cell database as I receive them so there is no need for me to answer an unknown; 2) if it is a client or someone that really needs to get to me, my voicemail instructs them to leave a phone number and name so I can verify who they are.  In this instance, it was a client of mine with a 'free' 3-month subscription to Skype and he did leave a message so I know where it came from.  My phone now verbally announces "Skype" when the number dials in.  Thanks to other entries on this site, I will also add the other Skype ID's so I know next time.

This is a Skype number.  Meaning someone is calling your phone from their Skype account, and it the call is routed through this particular number. The number is not owned by any single user but is randomly assigned from a bank of numbers Skype has.  From minute to minute this number might be used by a trusted friend calling you on Skype, or a spammer who is using Skype.  There's no telling.

An India-based company named DNF Global Solutions.Obviously, this is a well-connected establishment who are "harassing" and scamming people. Read my story and I did file a report. I was locked out of my Hotmail account and I was in this continuous loop. I searched the Internet and came across this company who provided tech support for Hotmail. I contacted them and I was told by this “tech” named Nick Nelson that 227 emails were sent from my computer requesting people’s financial data. I entered a contract with them for 3 years that they would provide all of the tech support for my computer. I later found out that companies like DNF Global Solutions are ripping people off. The name of this company is DNF Global Solutions who are located in India. The “tech” installed this Super AntiSpyware virus, which made my computer slower and infected my computer with viruses; my files were being deleted, uploaded and files were hidden. After I did my research, I learned that was a rogue virus to annoy me and to infect my computer, which it did. The scary part is that they were able to unblock my Hotmail account. I changed all of my passwords. While, I was speaking to them, someone gained access to my online banking account. They became the Administrative of the computer and I have not been able to repair it. I was told to call 866-921-5154 for tech support. They were calling me various phone numbers from 661-748-0244, 661-748-0240, 661-748-0242, 661-380-3000, 661-748-0245, but when I called the numbers back, it did not go through. I thought that was odd. After they failed to answer my questions, I decided to terminate the relationship. I spoke to a manager named Sonya who was shooting the “energy” over the phone. There is no DNF Global Solutions with Mike Hughes as the President. 866-921-5154 is the Toll-free number to an all-inclusive exotic vacation; http://allinclusive-adult-vacations.com/desinaion.htm, as well as, to an India phone number. The phone numbers that the “technicians” were calling from apparently were fraudulent because many people were complaining about how they were unethical telemarketers. My computer has not crashed so the forensics can be obtained off it to get their IP Address so that their illegal activities can be stopped.

This is NOT Microsoft. We got the same phone call and same number. We called Microsoft about it, and they assured us it's a scam. We gave them the name and and phone number that he called from. That number was 231-629-4824. This guy also had a heavy Indian accent. We told him to call back in half hour. The lady from Microsoft gave us a direct number where we could reach her at, cause she wanted to know if he called back or not. NO information was given to him whatsoever. NOW, the strange part, as I'm reading all these responses, is he DID call back half hour later, BUT the phone number showed Skype user 661-748-0240. So we called the Microsoft lady back, and she said evidently the 2 are connected together in some way. She thanked me and said they will investigate this. Oh yes, check this one out also: we couldn't hardly understand him cause of his accent, and we wanted his name. So he said each letter one by one like A as in apple. That way.

"Do you realize that her reversed charges end up costing us money in the aggregate?" is only true if the card companies cannot claw money back from the scammer. Clawback is probable in this case IMO because the scam appears to be ongoing. EVERYTHING the credit card companies and the banks do costs us money in the aggregate. That's how all financial companies handle $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever -- as a cost of doing business. They simply raise interest rates to raise the $amount needed to cover $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever.

You're right- we do need to take responsibility for our own idiocy.  That being so, I encourage you, and others who have commented on the stupidity of those who fell for the scams (and are kindly warning others of them), to consider your own shortcomings.It's not smart to fall for the scams, and I have not, but I daresay it's also not terribly smart to take out loans at a rate of about 22% interest on each one.  I've done that and so have you.  Every person in our "smart" population, who uses a credit card, agrees to that less than smart deal- over and over and OVER again . . .  Each and every transaction on your CREDIT card is a LOAN taken at a SUPER EXORBITANT rate. How smart is that??The banks take from us as much as they can, within the confines of existing law.  Given the rates we pay, I think they can be expected to do a bit more for us than distributing our loan dollars and keeping track of what we owe them.

Hi Joni,You can get your money back by reporting this incident as fraud to your credit card company. Your credit card company should be able to reimburse you for the charge, they will then do a fee reversal on the business that charged the credit card. However, it may be difficult if the "business" has closed their account with whatever credit card company you charged the fee on. This usually does not work for debit cards.

First let me tell you that you should NEVER Give ANY Personal information to someone calling you. 99% of the time it is a scam. If they tell you they are from a big company ask for the toll free number so you can be sure it really is the company, if they give you a phone number Search the number on Google or Bing or whatever search engine you use. You will probably find that the number is a scam line (like this Skype number is. Then call the ACTUAL number for the Company and report the number that called you along with the toll free number they provided to you.Now the important part: GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK!!Get the Credit Card you used to pay the $199. Call the Customer Service # on the back. Listen to the Options  the Automated Prompts for something like:  'Report Fraudulent Charges'  'Dispute a Transaction'Or just plain ole' Customer Service. Once you have a person from your Credit Card Company on the phone tell them that you have been the victim of a Scam, explain how the person called you claiming to be an Employee of Microsoft (Don't say McHelp cause that sounds like McDonalds went into the Help Desk Business and not even remotely like a real company) telling you that your computer was being hacked. Give them any information you have on the Fake Company including phone numbers and emails/email addresses, websites. Tell them that they gained access to your computer remotely and may have all of your personal and financial information.I am assuming that you fell for the same scam that the others are describing.They will probably transfer you to the Fraud Department and they should close the current credit card and issue you a new card with a new number since crooks have your Credit Card Number.

How/to whom does a person file a complaint? The same thing happened to me in June 2012 and I paid $199.00 for one years service protection plan. I even was given an account number with McHelp, the name of the company. They called me back yesterday stating I was being hacked again and that it was coming out of China. They were suppose to call me back last night at 7 when I was home and had access to my computer. They did not call. I gave them the lanline phone number. the guy just called be pack on my cell and while I am at work. They are supposedly calling back tonight at 8. He had a very heavy Indian accent and the call was very "echoy" and he spoke rapidly and was rude. I told him he needed to speak slower and clearer and not to be rude to me. I tried calling the number and it is a skype number according to the recording I get. How can I get my money back from June 2012. who can we report this scammer to so it stops and is Microsoft aware of this? I have changed my password on several accounts.

You're an IDIOT!  Why do people like to speak on subjects they know nothing about? Either stupid or lazy I guess.The FTC is not supplying free calling lists to commercial telemarketers. FYI: Companies are required by law to pay a stiff fee in order to access the DNC list, there is no choice in the matter. Additionally the fines are quite stiff for Co's who get caught violating the list either by mistake or intentionally.Of course there are plenty of stealth companies out there that dial away as they wish.

I've been receiving calls from this company for a couple of weeks.  If they reach my VM, they don't leave a message.  When I did speak with them, the caller said they were with the Wellness Program provided by United Healthcare.  Since that's my insurance plan provided by work, I called them to confirm and, yes, this agency *is* under the umbrella of services that is offered by United Healthcare.  According to both agencies, they'll stop calling upon request.  However - and this is important to note - they will keep calling the 'master' number for each insured person.  For instance, my number is the main number listed, since I'm carrying the insurance.  And I'm carrying insurance for both myself and my husband.  So, although they (finally) stopped calling my phone for me, they continue to call my phone for my husband.  And they will not stop calling until HE requests that they stop calling.  Long story short, the program is legitimate, and will stop harassing on request.  Just not immediately.  Good luck everyone :)

I asked for his company's web site to do some more research, and he gave me: pdmi.com.us -- well, that site does not exist, and pdmi.com is a pharmacy data group, so maybe I misunderstood.

He stated they were'nt selling anything but they work for credit card companies and can lower my interest rates. I told him I was'nt interested and to take me off the list. Then I asked for their mailing address. He said he could'nt give it out. I asked for a supervisor and was give this number 1-888-292-3421, extension 200. When I called I spoke to a female that was completely exhasperated when I asked her for their address and name of company. She said Financial Services, hang on. Next a man by the name of Russ got on the line. I asked him for the address and he refused and we had a raised voice discussion about how he got my info & why he would'nt give out the address. He told me he could mess my life up as they get their info from the Credit Bureau. I told him good luck as I pay my bills and was'nt worried about scammers like him. He wanted to explain more but I told him they were a scam and I was going to do my investigation into their practices, track their phone numbers and report them to the Georgia Attorney General, and the Federal Trade Commission, the 3 credit bureaus as well as my credit card company, which I fully intended to do.

No. A debt collector may not contact you at inconvenient times or places, such as before 8 in the morning or after 9 at night, unless you agree to it. And collectors may not contact you at work if they’re told (orally or in writing) that you’re not allowed to get calls there.How can I stop a debt collector from contacting me?If a collector contacts you about a debt, you may want to talk to them at least once to see if you can resolve the matter – even if you don’t think you owe the debt, can’t repay it immediately, or think that the collector is contacting you by mistake. If you decide after contacting the debt collector that you don’t want the collector to contact you again, tell the collector – in writing – to stop contacting you. Here’s how to do that:Make a copy of your letter. Send the original by certified mail, and pay for a “return receipt” so you’ll be able to document what the collector received. Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again, with two exceptions: a collector can contact you to tell you there will be no further contact or to let you know that they or the creditor intend to take a specific action, like filing a lawsuit. Sending such a letter to a debt collector you owe money to does not get rid of the debt, but it should stop the contact. The creditor or the debt collector still can sue you to collect the debt. Can a debt collector contact anyone else about my debt?If an attorney is representing you about the debt, the debt collector must contact the attorney, rather than you. If you don’t have an attorney, a collector may contact other people – but only to find out your address, your home phone number, and where you work. Collectors usually are prohibited from contacting third parties more than once. Other than to obtain this location information about you, a debt collector generally is not permitted to discuss your debt with anyone other than you, your spouse, or your attorney.What does the debt collector have to tell me about the debt? Every collector must send you a written “validation notice” telling you how much money you owe within five days after they first contact you. This notice also must include the name of the creditor to whom you owe the money, and how to proceed if you don’t think you owe the money. Can a debt collector keep contacting me if I don’t think I owe any money? If you send the debt collector a letter stating that you don’t owe any or all of the money, or asking for verification of the debt, that collector must stop contacting you. You have to send that letter within 30 days after you receive the validation notice. But a collector can begin contacting you again if it sends you written verification of the debt, like a copy of a bill for the amount you owe.What practices are off limits for debt collectors?Harassment. Debt collectors may not harass, oppress, or abuse you or any third parties they contact. For example, they may not:     use threats of violence or harm;     publish a list of names of people who refuse to pay their debts (but they can give this information to the credit reporting companies);     use obscene or profane language; or     repeatedly use the phone to annoy someone. False statements. Debt collectors may not lie when they are trying to collect a debt. For example, they may not:     falsely claim that they are attorneys or government representatives;     falsely claim that you have committed a crime;     falsely represent that they operate or work for a credit reporting company;     misrepresent the amount you owe;     indicate that papers they send you are legal forms if they aren’t; or     indicate that papers they send to you aren’t legal forms if they are. Debt collectors also are prohibited from saying that:     you will be arrested if you don’t pay your debt;     they’ll seize, garnish, attach, or sell your property or wages unless they are permitted by law to take the action and intend to do so; or     legal action will be taken against you, if doing so would be illegal or if they don’t intend to take the action. Debt collectors may not:     give false credit information about you to anyone, including a credit reporting company;     send you anything that looks like an official document from a court or government agency if it isn’t; or     use a false company name. Unfair practices. Debt collectors may not engage in unfair practices when they try to collect a debt. For example, they may not:     try to collect any interest, fee, or other charge on top of the amount you owe unless the contract that created your debt – or your state law – allows the charge;     deposit a post-dated check early;     take or threaten to take your property unless it can be done legally; or     contact you by postcard. Can I control which debts my payments apply to? Yes. If a debt collector is trying to collect more than one debt from you, the collector must apply any payment you make to the debt you select. Equally important, a debt collector may not apply a payment to a debt you don’t think you owe.Can a debt collector garnish my bank account or my wages?If you don’t pay a debt, a creditor or its debt collector generally can sue you to collect. If they win, the court will enter a judgment against you. The judgment states the amount of money you owe, and allows the creditor or collector to get a garnishment order against you, directing a third party, like your bank, to turn over funds from your account to pay the debt. Wage garnishment happens when your employer withholds part of your compensation to pay your debts. Your wages usually can be garnished only as the result of a court order. Don’t ignore a lawsuit summons. If you do, you lose the opportunity to fight a wage garnishment.Can federal benefits be garnished?Many federal benefits are exempt from garnishment, including:     Social Security Benefits     Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits     Veterans’ Benefits     Civil Service and Federal Retirement and Disability Benefits     Service Members’ Pay     Military Annuities and Survivors’ Benefits     Student Assistance     Railroad Retirement Benefits     Merchant Seamen Wages     Longshoremen’s and Harbor Workers’ Death and Disability Benefits     Foreign Service Retirement and Disability Benefits     Compensation for Injury, Death, or Detention of Employees of U.S. Contractors Outside the U.S.     Federal Emergency Management Agency Federal Disaster Assistance But federal benefits may be garnished under certain circumstances, including to pay delinquent taxes, alimony, child support, or student loans. Do I have any recourse if I think a debt collector has violated the law? You have the right to sue a collector in a state or federal court within one year from the date the law was violated. If you win, the judge can require the collector to pay you for any damages you can prove you suffered because of the illegal collection practices, like lost wages and medical bills. The judge can require the debt collector to pay you up to $1,000, even if you can’t prove that you suffered actual damages. You also can be reimbursed for your attorney’s fees and court costs. A group of people also may sue a debt collector as part of a class action lawsuit and recover money for damages up to $500,000, or one percent of the collector’s net worth, whichever amount is lower. Even if a debt collector violates the FDCPA in trying to collect a debt, the debt does not go away if you owe it.What should I do if a debt collector sues me?If a debt collector files a lawsuit against you to collect a debt, respond to the lawsuit, either personally or through your lawyer, by the date specified in the court papers to preserve your rights. Where do I report a debt collector for an alleged violation?Report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state Attorney General’s office (www.naag.org) and the Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc.gov). Many states have their own debt collection laws that are different from the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Your Attorney General’s office can help you determine your rights under your state’s law.For More InformationTo learn more about debt collection and other credit-related issues, visit www.ftc.gov/credit and MyMoney.gov, the U.S. government’s portal to financial education.The FTC works for the consumer to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop, and avoid them.

If you fall behind in paying your creditors — or if you dispute the legitimacy of a debt — a debt collector may contact you.“Time-barred” debts are debts so old they are beyond the point at which a creditor or debt collector may sue you to collect. State law varies as to when a creditor or debt collector may no longer sue to collect: in most states, the statute of limitations period on debts is between 3 and 10 years; in some states, the period is longer. Check with your State Attorney General’s Office to determine when a debt is considered time-barred in your state. You can find contact information for your State Attorney General at www.naag.org. Federal law imposes limitations on how debt collectors can collect debts, including time-barred debts. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), a “debt collector” generally is any person or organization that regularly collects debts owed to others. The term includes lawyers who collect debts for others on a regular basis, but it does not include creditors collecting their own debts.The FDCPA prohibits debt collectors from engaging in any unfair, deceptive, or abusive practices while collecting debts. It does not erase any legitimate debt that you owe. To learn more about your rights under the FDCPA, click on www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/credit/fdc.htm.Collecting Time-Barred DebtsMost courts that have addressed the issue have ruled that the FDCPA does not prohibit debt collectors from trying to collect time-barred debts, as long as they do not sue or threaten to sue you for the debt. If a debt collector sues you to collect a time-barred debt, you can have the suit dismissed by letting the court or judge know the debt is, indeed, time-barred.Whether a time-barred debt — or any debt for that matter — can appear on your credit report depends on how long the debt has been delinquent: debts that have been delinquent more than seven years cannot appear on your credit report, with certain exceptions. In addition, a debt collector may not try to collect a debt that has been discharged in bankruptcy, no matter when it was incurred. To learn more about credit reporting, click on www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/credit/fcra.htm.Contact with CollectorsCan a debt collector continue to contact you about a time-barred debt you don’t think you owe? According to the law, if you send the debt collector a letter stating that you do not owe some or all of the money within 30 days after you receive written notice of a debt, the collector must stop trying to collect until you’ve been given written verification of the debt, like a copy of the bill for the amount you supposedly owe. The collector can renew collection activities once you’ve gotten proof of the debt.You can stop debt collectors from contacting you about any debt, regardless of whether you owe it, by writing a letter telling them to stop contacting you. Once the collector gets your letter, it may not contact you again — except to say there will be no further contact or to let you know that the collector or creditor intends to take some specific action. Sending a letter doesn’t absolve you of the debt if you actually owe it; the debt collector or creditor still could sue you for the debt.Future Collection EffortsThe best way to protect yourself from future collection on any disputed or partially settled debt is to get a form or letter from the creditor or collector that releases you from further obligation. To make sure the release is valid, you may want to consult an attorney. If you believe that a debt collector violated the law, you have the right to sue in a state or federal court within a year from the date the law was violated. If you win, you may recover money for the damages you suffered, plus an additional amount up to $1,000. You also may recover court costs and attorney’s fees. You also may want to report any problems you have with a debt collector to your State Attorney General and to the Federal Trade Commission.The FTC works to prevent fraudulent, deceptive and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop and avoid them.
