these scammers have been calling my number for the last two and one half years! (i have the phone bills to prove that.)  they always ask for "Heather McClure" some of their english is so bad you can barely understand them.  I have this number tagged in my phone now, so i can immediately answer it and let the fun begin.  i have found several very humerous scripts to use on them and will be interested in seeing how quickly i can cause them to hang up!

I reveived a call today from this number. It's the same story as others. Some Indian/Middle Eastern person claiming to be from an investigation bureau. They call all the time from different numbers. Sometimes it comes up as 000. I never pick-up! Total Scam!
Report by Pbear Long ago Unknown
SCAMMERS!They've been reported repeatedly to the Ohio Attorney General...Apparently there is "information" out there and they threaten you with legal action- although they can't answer any questions (and for that matter have NO proof of anything). They've called my cell phone, my home phone and work number. They are aware that ALL incoming work calls are monitored- so they best beware...Different numbers as well as four 0000's...they are scamming and routing calls through and into the US from overseas...India, Pakistan and the like. Interesting that all the names are simple such as "William Walter" or "James Foster" but they sound more like Fhasi Nehru Dubai.DO NOT EVER PAY THEM ANYTHING OR GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION WHATSOEVER>SCAMMERS!!!

I keep on getting calls coming in from different telephone numbers..some numbers in caller ID say 000 but other numbers will be NY city, upstate NY, and other places too.  With VoIP you can mask your realy number and substitute any number you want to these calls could be originating from anywhere in the world.  I hope people don't fall for this scam.  This one is interesting because they are like a fly.  They keep on coming back at you.  I just hang up, but they keep on calling back with a sense of entitlement.  I wonder if they are in India and that they are not in the scam and bought into what somone told them.

I have recieved messages from Officer Shaun Peterson of US Investigation Bureau telling me I need to call or have my attorney at call get ahold of him . He has an Indian accent, there have been others calling from the same number. The one time I did talk to the man he would not give any of the information I asked for and wouldnt send it to my home. I asked how much I supposedly owed, he wouldnt tell me. I asked for an address where to send a cashiers check or money order , they didnt want a money order or cashiers check just my checking information or debit card information. I have called an attorney, sherriff, and the security here at work.I wish they could catch them.

They can call me every day for years and talk to my machine all they want if that is what they are compelled to do with their lives. It doesn't bother me at all. What's with all of these thin skinned easily irritated people anyway? Too many food additives? It takes no more effort to erase their messages than it does to erase any others and I can do it at the same time for efficiency. I will never bother to expend the effort to talk to them and I will never, ever send them a dime for a debt, whether legitimate or not-- Just because they are who they are. If they sue me, I fight them tooth and nail all the way through court with free legal aid, forcing them to waste more time and money. Then I continue to not pay them, in peace and tranquility. If everyone did that, they’d all go out of business. I am the rock upon which they beat themselves bloody. Love to all...

only in america what has this world become. looking out for a fast buck and taking no responsibility for actions.  the best thing to do in dealing w/ a debt collector is to get specific info and always provided good, specific documentation when disputing a bal owed/ but above all if there is just some outside chance that you do owe the money make payments as quickly as possible and payoff asap/ sitting idly by not making cont w/ the collector only makes things worse/ fact is the debt probable wasn't already handled in the best manner if you are already in collection. work w/ the debtor whether you owe it or not.not dealing w/ it only looks like your running from the debt

This is my third and last posting. I just e-mailed Penn (see previous posting for their e-mail address), after receiving another one of their automated messages on my answering machine. Feel free to copy and paste this from an anonymous e-mail address to e-mail your warning to them:My name is xxxxx at xxx-xxx-xxxx. (Real name and number was given to them.) You have called my home repeatedly with automated messages. Your messages, that often are left on my answering machine, claim that you are a collection agency. You do not identify whom you represent, and through your automated methods, are circumventing my opportunity to warn you about the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act.  Since you have been harassing me for months, using circumvention, I am warning you now. You are not to call my home for ANY reason. If you do, I will alert your State Attorney General to your tactics.  S/he will receive a link to this website, http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-800-900-1380#pdJBhBsywLgDXogjLKhxjSQ that attests to your tactics as described by multiple victims.  I speak for them as well as myself. You have the right to contact unknowledgeable consumers if lawful; however, I am not one of those unknowledgeable consumers. You are on notice, as of the reception of this message, that further telephonic contact will be reported to your SAG. S/he will receive my written complaint, a copy of this notice and a link to the aforementioned website as evidence.Cease and desist or further action will be taken.

But when a collector keeps calling for someone that does not live at your address and you don't even know, it is harrassment on their part. And even when it is a bs call that should not be made because the number is on and has been on the Do Not Call registry for many yrs. So when I tell them that they need to stop calling for those reasons and they keep calling anyway, I will report them for harrassment.

The big problem with this caller is that I answer the phone all the time and there is no one there.  I have no problem with them trying to collect a legitimate debt from someone, and am sure it isn't mine, but I want to know what debt it is and whose debt it is.   Another reason I answer is to inform them, if there is actually anyone on the line,  that I don't want to receive any more calls from them and furthermore that I recently purchased a dandy little item called a Screecher and the next live person who calls from their company will probably lose the hearing in one ear.  I know that would be illegal, but wouldn't it be great to get this whole thing out in court for everyone to see how these firms work, and I'm sure if there are any members of the jury who receive these types of calls I will be acquitted.

As a debt collector, I was curious as to what was said about collectors on the internet. You do NOT tell a company you want to cease communication, companies want it in writing."CEASING COMMUNICATION.  If a consumer notifies a debt collector in writing that the consumer refuses to pay a debt or that the consumer wishes the debt collector to cease further communication with the consumer, the debt collector shall not communicate further with the consumer with respect to such debt, except—(1) to advise the consumer that the debt collector’s further efforts are being terminated; (2) to notify the consumer that the debt collector or creditor may invoke specified remedies which are ordinarily invoked by such debt collector or creditor;" I know this because not only do I know the law, I was tested on it MULTIPLE times. Also, if we DON'T KNOW that we're contacting a family member, how are we supposed to stop? As far as we know, we're contacting the debtor. A tip for a debtor: We're only allowed to have contact (this includes knowing we're talking to the correct person by verifying a name plus another form of identification) once every three (or five?) days. We work on an automatic dialer and the dialer does that sort of work.

@Trying, You're obviously a very responsible person. I am not. If things don't go well for me, I don't pay, simple as that. I'm not going to hurt for them! And I don't lose any sleep over it or even allow myself to get upset. The primary money grubber doesn't give a damn about me and the scum sucking collection jackals for sure couldn't care less about my situation and what I have to go through. So I don't give a damn about them either or give them a second thought.  I am their worst nightmare. They can only get a hook into your flesh if you care. If you care, you are vulnerable to their BS. I do not. I screen all calls and don't even waste my time answering and being manipulated by these low-lifes. This is their problem having the job that they do.

I've told 2 companies that I haven't been able to work for 2 years due to progressive health problems still not under control and have since applied to disability and that I was NOT trying to get out of paying my debts but just have to wait until receive disability and actually have a pay check or disability check to make any payments. It's really hard with only hubby's paycheck with a pay cut to keep his job to pay everything. They still keep calling and harrassing. I told them what do you think you can get out of 'nothing?' I have sold everything I can sell to pay off some debts and still have 2 left. Those 2 will just have to wait. I have a hearing coming up on ss and no, I am not one of those deadbeats who won't work; I have worked since I was 13 years old and buying my own school clothes/stereo equip/and other personal items. I have paid into ss all my life. They just don't 'get it.' I finally told them, you'll have to wait until I hear from ss or sue me. If you sue me, you will get nothing. There's nothing left to get. THIS is harrassment. They can check with drs and the ss to see I am NOT lying about any of this, so why do they continue? ONE day THEY themselves will see hardship and they will get theirs.

Absolutely. You need to get a consumer law attorney and sue them for repeatedly ignoring your requests to validate the debt:Section 809(a) requires a collector, within 5 days of the first communication, to provide the consumer a written notice (if not provided in that communication) containing (1) the amount of the debt and--(2) the name of the creditor, along with a statement that he will (3) assume the debt's validity unless the consumer disputes it within 30 days, (4) send a verification or copy of the judgment if the consumer timely disputes the debt, and --(5) identify the original creditor upon written request. http://www.fair-debt-collection.com/rules/validating-debts-9.html#1

These businesses like credit companies all use other family members info to try to track you down. They will even try contacting an ex spouse, children, moms, dads, grandparents, neighbors or anyone else they think will give them the info they are looking for. They will use 'find anyone' companies and give any and all info they currently know or have on you. Even though you might have been divorced for decades........they still have your name also and probably think you might still know how to reach the ex or know the whereabouts of them. These companies are like the IRS; if someone says you died; they'll hire someone to dig your grave up and do DNA to prove it. Not joking either.

I am a collection agent and have been on the receiving end of collection calls so I'm not judging anyone, I understand times get hard but as far as the Fair Credit Reporting Act, that has nothing to do with demanding that someone stop calling you. If you are going to give advise to people about how to handle their debt or people calling about debt at least reference back to the correct guidelines which would be the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or FDCPA. And you do have the right to request that someone stop calling you, but you do have to follow any verbal request to cease calls in writing within 10 days of the verbal request and I would suggest mailing with return receipt requested. AND FOR ANYONE THAT WANTS TO SAY I WORK FOR THE COMPANY CALLING, I DON'T AND NEVER HAVE. I WORK IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT STATE FOR A TOTALLY UNRELATED COMPANY BUT 800-900-1380 CALLED OUR OFFICE NUMBER LOOKING FOR SOMEONE THAT APPARENTLY USE TO HAVE THIS NUMBER. Don't get rude with someone from a collection agency calling if it's a wrong number, it's not our fault, we were given the number by the person we are trying to contact and chances are if one agency was given the wrong number, several agencies were so don't assume that just because you tell an agency that the number no longer belongs to John Doe that every other agency should automatically know.

You are WRONG. Disney sent me one time a bunch of stupid figurines of Disney characters in a box that I have never ever ordered from before.

WHY would I order this trash? They couldn't verify my order of these items and chose to "allow me to keep them instead" at which point I threw them in the trash. So don't tell me this sort of quirky stupid sales tactic doesn't happen. Yellow Pages online took it upon themselves 5 years ago to put our business on their listing and then had the audacity to send me a bill!

Many moons ago, X sent me a book that I did not order with an invoice. I called and yelled at them, they said they'd gotten my name from Business Week magazine (that I had a subscription to then) as a sales lead and arranged return shipment directly from my home after I told them I was keeping it (the law says unsolicited shipments are free gifts) if I had to lift a finger or pay a penny to return it. And the book seller was a legit business. 800notes is rife with complaints of scammers offering freebies to businesses like a dozen pens to try, ship like a 100 dozen of them followed by an invoice and claim the business had ordered them.

I think the state laws of the person who received the call would most likely apply on the subject of recorded phone calls. I say this because I think if a person would file a lawsuit, it would be filed in the state of residence of the person who received a call, not necessarily in Pen. In the state I live in, Georgia, as long as one person has knowledge of the recorded call, the recording is admissible in court. I don't the full ins and outs of this, but I think this may be the case. I'm not being critical but just offering a different perspective that could apply. I encourage everyone to look up the laws of their state regarding this. The individual;s attorney general's office would be a good place to start.

"You say they block their number. How did you get to this page then."I think blkcatmail meant that they block their name (I got "Not Provided" when they called me just a few minutes ago, and I came here through Google, looking up the number).When they call, if you pick up, do what Dee Dee says, BUT tell them that they need to only contact you in writing (there are some protections for companies that are just told to stop calling, without having other ways to communicate).It's a very good idea to send a letter (by certified mail, with receipt requested) stating that you want them to only contact you in writing - and, no, email doesn't count.THEN, once you have proof that they've received the letter, if they continue to call, they are in violation of the FDCPA; and you can go ahead and report them to their State Attorney General's Office. If you don't send the letter, they can always claim that you never told them to stop calling. Any judge might be inclined not to believe them, but you'd have no proof to say they were lying, so they could still get away with it.BTW - if anyone is thinking of recording their phone calls with Penn Credit, Pennsylvania requires all parties in the conversation know that a recording is being made, UNLESS a party does something illegal in that conversation. So, go ahead and record, but keep in mind that you probably won't be able to use that recording(s) unless they commit an illegal act while you're talking.

I've been getting calls from these clowns, too. I get the same computer messages (that are hilarious when the "computer" says my full name). OK, Folks. There are laws against this and I am a consumer advocate. Now here this ~ whether you owe money or not, is totally irrelevant. Please look up the Fair Credit Reporting Act which will tell you that if you tell the collector to never call back again because of the FCRA, that they are in violation of the Law. Then threaten to contact their State Attorney General's Office in PA. By law, they are allowed to contact you one more time, offering a final settlement. Don't accept a settlement. Don't waste your time by arguing over money. Simply follow through with your threat. Warn them for the last time, then immediately contact the SAG in PA. Most SAGs can be contacted via e-mail. Attach a link for him/her to this site. Penn has probably already violated the law with their calling methods. They are trying to circumvent knowledgeable consumer warnings. This is the solution and you must follow through with the SAG. I have used this Law before and my state's SAG came down hard on the creditor, who expressed a threat (also against FCRA). Fortunately, I was the spouse of a deadbeat. I wasn't the deadbeat. Anyway, you can use this with any collector. Keep in mind that many of these calls may be scams. In this sucking economy, con artists are crawling out of the woodwork. Remember that with any collector you must contact the SAG in THEIR state.

The other thing collection companies do is what is called a "reverse lookup".  Debt collectors look at old addresses and do a reverse lookup for the address and then call any telephone number associated with the address: even if the phone number has belonged to someone else for ten years!  (I know; I'm that person who gets the calls.)  Another thing debt collectors do is simply call any telephone number ever associated with the person who allegedly has a debt to see if there is a response and if the alleged debtor has returned to the number.  I have lived in this house for over ten years; I have had the same telephone number for fifteen years; I have had the same cell number since my first cell phone purchase; I still get calls for the same people who may have once lived in my house because my phone numbers are tied into the address.Last week, my neighbors were called to see if perchance one of them could get me to call back because the call was urgent.  My neighbor informed the caller that no such person had lived at that address for years.  We are still getting the calls.

I know this is an old posting, but under the FDCPA a bill collector can not reveal information to anyone but the person who they are trying to reach. That is why the message will tell you not to listen or to hang up. The collection agency is covering their butt in case they reach a wrong person who does listen to the message. Bill collectors who "claim" to be decent, hardworking individuals just doing their jobs will find people with the same last name as yours in your area and hound them with phone calls hoping they will eventually reach the person the are looking for. Research the law and fight back at these people.If you are the wrong person, tell them not to call you again and if they continue to do so, document the calls and sue them. You can win a judgement of $1000 for harassment due to violating the rules of the Fair Debt Collection Protection Act.

One way of getting them to stop calling you is by sending a certified letter to them requesting that they stop calling you. I read this on a website about creditor harassment. It is supposed to be a law that they must follow.

I read some of the postings here and some other forums about collection attorneys like this b*****d Regent. Based on what I read I tried to avoid this law firm, demanded documents, which they provided (by the way I talked to a judge and he told me that they only need to provide in the first 30 days and if you have ever made a payment the debt is considered valid) and then sued me, got a judgment against me and then put a lien on my account. I should have never listened to any of you guys on this forum and settled for 50% and be done with. Now I am paying 100% plus court cost and this b*****d's attorney fees and dont have access to my bank account and a judgment against my public records.

They can call me every day for years and talk to my machine all they want if that is what they are compelled to do with their lives. It doesn't bother me at all. What's with all of these thin skinned easily irritated people anyway? Too many food additives? It takes no more effort to erase their messages than it does to erase any others and I can do it at the same time for efficiency. I will never bother to expend the effort to talk to them and I will never, ever send them a dime for a debt, whether legitimate or not-- Just because they are who they are. If they sue me, I fight them tooth and nail all the way through court with free legal aid, forcing them to waste more time and money. Then I continue to not pay them, in peace and tranquility. If everyone did that, they’d all go out of business. I am the rock upon which they beat themselves bloody. Love to all...

This is my third and last posting. I just e-mailed Penn (see previous posting for their e-mail address), after receiving another one of their automated messages on my answering machine. Feel free to copy and paste this from an anonymous e-mail address to e-mail your warning to them:My name is xxxxx at xxx-xxx-xxxx. (Real name and number was given to them.) You have called my home repeatedly with automated messages. Your messages, that often are left on my answering machine, claim that you are a collection agency. You do not identify whom you represent, and through your automated methods, are circumventing my opportunity to warn you about the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act.  Since you have been harassing me for months, using circumvention, I am warning you now. You are not to call my home for ANY reason. If you do, I will alert your State Attorney General to your tactics.  S/he will receive a link to this website, http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-800-900-1380#pdJBhBsywLgDXogjLKhxjSQ that attests to your tactics as described by multiple victims.  I speak for them as well as myself. You have the right to contact unknowledgeable consumers if lawful; however, I am not one of those unknowledgeable consumers. You are on notice, as of the reception of this message, that further telephonic contact will be reported to your SAG.

But when a collector keeps calling for someone that does not live at your address and you don't even know, it is harrassment on their part. And even when it is a bs call that should not be made because the number is on and has been on the Do Not Call registry for many yrs. So when I tell them that they need to stop calling for those reasons and they keep calling anyway, I will report them for harrassment.

The big problem with this caller is that I answer the phone all the time and there is no one there.  I have no problem with them trying to collect a legitimate debt from someone, and am sure it isn't mine, but I want to know what debt it is and whose debt it is.   Another reason I answer is to inform them, if there is actually anyone on the line,  that I don't want to receive any more calls from them and furthermore that I recently purchased a dandy little item called a Screecher and the next live person who calls from their company will probably lose the hearing in one ear.  I know that would be illegal, but wouldn't it be great to get this whole thing out in court for everyone to see how these firms work, and I'm sure if there are any members of the jury who receive these types of calls I will be acquitted.

As a debt collector, I was curious as to what was said about collectors on the internet. You do NOT tell a company you want to cease communication, companies want it in writing."CEASING COMMUNICATION.  If a consumer notifies a debt collector in writing that the consumer refuses to pay a debt or that the consumer wishes the debt collector to cease further communication with the consumer, the debt collector shall not communicate further with the consumer with respect to such debt, except—(1) to advise the consumer that the debt collector’s further efforts are being terminated; (2) to notify the consumer that the debt collector or creditor may invoke specified remedies which are ordinarily invoked by such debt collector or creditor;" I know this because not only do I know the law, I was tested on it MULTIPLE times. Also, if we DON'T KNOW that we're contacting a family member, how are we supposed to stop? As far as we know, we're contacting the debtor. A tip for a debtor: We're only allowed to have contact (this includes knowing we're talking to the correct person by verifying a name plus another form of identification) once every three (or five?) days. We work on an automatic dialer and the dialer does that sort of work.

Absolutely.

These businesses like credit companies all use other family members info to try to track you down. They will even try contacting an ex spouse, children, moms, dads, grandparents, neighbors or anyone else they think will give them the info they are looking for. They will use 'find anyone' companies and give any and all info they currently know or have on you. Even though you might have been divorced for decades........they still have your name also and probably think you might still know how to reach the ex or know the whereabouts of them.

I am a collection agent and have been on the receiving end of collection calls so I'm not judging anyone, I understand times get hard but as far as the Fair Credit Reporting Act, that has nothing to do with demanding that someone stop calling you. If you are going to give advise to people about how to handle their debt or people calling about debt at least reference back to the correct guidelines which would be the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or FDCPA. And you do have the right to request that someone stop calling you, but you do have to follow any verbal request to cease calls in writing within 10 days of the verbal request and I would suggest mailing with return receipt requested. AND FOR ANYONE THAT WANTS TO SAY I WORK FOR THE COMPANY CALLING, I DON'T AND NEVER HAVE. I WORK IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT STATE FOR A TOTALLY UNRELATED COMPANY BUT 800-900-1380 CALLED OUR OFFICE NUMBER LOOKING FOR SOMEONE THAT APPARENTLY USE TO HAVE THIS NUMBER. Don't get rude with someone from a collection agency calling if it's a wrong number, it's not our fault, we were given the number by the person we are trying to contact and chances are if one agency was given the wrong number, several agencies were so don't assume that just because you tell an agency that the number no longer belongs to John Doe that every other agency should automatically know.

And the book seller was a legit business. 800notes is rife with complaints of scammers offering freebies to businesses like a dozen pens to try, ship like a 100 dozen of them followed by an invoice and claim the business had ordered them.

I think the state laws of the person who received the call would most likely apply on the subject of recorded phone calls. I say this because I think if a person would file a lawsuit, it would be filed in the state of residence of the person who received a call, not necessarily in Pen. In the state I live in, Georgia, as long as one person has knowledge of the recorded call, the recording is admissible in court. I don't the full ins and outs of this, but I think this may be the case. I'm not being critical but just offering a different perspective that could apply. I encourage everyone to look up the laws of their state regarding this. The individual;s attorney general's office would be a good place to start.

"You say they block their number. How did you get to this page then."I think blkcatmail meant that they block their name (I got "Not Provided" when they called me just a few minutes ago, and I came here through Google, looking up the number).When they call, if you pick up, do what Dee Dee says, BUT tell them that they need to only contact you in writing (there are some protections for companies that are just told to stop calling, without having other ways to communicate).It's a very good idea to send a letter (by certified mail, with receipt requested) stating that you want them to only contact you in writing - and, no, email doesn't count.THEN, once you have proof that they've received the letter, if they continue to call, they are in violation of the FDCPA; and you can go ahead and report them to their State Attorney General's Office. If you don't send the letter, they can always claim that you never told them to stop calling. Any judge might be inclined not to believe them, but you'd have no proof to say they were lying, so they could still get away with it.BTW - if anyone is thinking of recording their phone calls with Penn Credit, Pennsylvania requires all parties in the conversation know that a recording is being made, UNLESS a party does something illegal in that conversation. So, go ahead and record, but keep in mind that you probably won't be able to use that recording(s) unless they commit an illegal act while you're talking.

You say they block their number. How did you get to this page then. I'm in no way sticking up for them, I have recieved calls from this number and a couple others some blocked some not. I just don't answer the phone and let them leave a message. I'mhere because quality paperback books sent me 3 books 2 years ago. I never ordered the books and I threw them away. Since they were in an unmarked package and I had no idea what was being shipped to me, I had opened them. I know enough that something shipped to me that  I didn't order, I have the right to do with as I please. but I will not stand for their recent threats of turning me into a credit bureau. its illegal to ship something and expect payment. When the reciever never ordered anything.

I've been getting calls from these clowns, too. I get the same computer messages (that are hilarious when the "computer" says my full name). OK, Folks. There are laws against this and I am a consumer advocate. Now here this ~ whether you owe money or not, is totally irrelevant. Please look up the Fair Credit Reporting Act which will tell you that if you tell the collector to never call back again because of the FCRA, that they are in violation of the Law. Then threaten to contact their State Attorney General's Office in PA. By law, they are allowed to contact you one more time, offering a final settlement. Don't accept a settlement. Don't waste your time by arguing over money. Simply follow through with your threat. Warn them for the last time, then immediately contact the SAG in PA. Most SAGs can be contacted via e-mail. Attach a link for him/her to this site. Penn has probably already violated the law with their calling methods. They are trying to circumvent knowledgeable consumer warnings. This is the solution and you must follow through with the SAG. I have used this Law before and my state's SAG came down hard on the creditor, who expressed a threat (also against FCRA). Fortunately, I was the spouse of a deadbeat. I wasn't the deadbeat. Anyway, you can use this with any collector. Keep in mind that many of these calls may be scams. In this sucking economy, con artists are crawling out of the woodwork. Remember that with any collector you must contact the SAG in THEIR state.

The other thing collection companies do is what is called a "reverse lookup".  Debt collectors look at old addresses and do a reverse lookup for the address and then call any telephone number associated with the address: even if the phone number has belonged to someone else for ten years!  (I know; I'm that person who gets the calls.)  Another thing debt collectors do is simply call any telephone number ever associated with the person who allegedly has a debt to see if there is a response and if the alleged debtor has returned to the number.  I have lived in this house for over ten years; I have had the same telephone number for fifteen years; I have had the same cell number since my first cell phone purchase; I still get calls for the same people who may have once lived in my house because my phone numbers are tied into the address.Last week, my neighbors were called to see if perchance one of them could get me to call back because the call was urgent.  My neighbor informed the caller that no such person had lived at that address for years.  We are still getting the calls.

I know this is an old posting, but under the FDCPA a bill collector can not reveal information to anyone but the person who they are trying to reach. That is why the message will tell you not to listen or to hang up. The collection agency is covering their butt in case they reach a wrong person who does listen to the message. Bill collectors who "claim" to be decent, hardworking individuals just doing their jobs will find people with the same last name as yours in your area and hound them with phone calls hoping they will eventually reach the person the are looking for. Research the law and fight back at these people.If you are the wrong person, tell them not to call you again and if they continue to do so, document the calls and sue them. You can win a judgement of $1000 for harassment due to violating the rules of the Fair Debt Collection Protection Act.

They say that to cover their a** regarding privacy issues. The fact is, unless they verify that you are the person they are trying to reach they are breaking privacy laws.

Always get everything in writing.  Discussing business over the phone is never a good idea.  In writing you have a record of all transaction and it doesn't turn into a "he said, she said" problem later on down the road.

Actually the phone company does NOT have the right to DICTATE to you how you handle a phone call you receive.  But then that is NOT what she said.....so perhaps if you read ALL the words, you could respond properly.  However, I strongly suspect it's what the previous commenter said....you probably work for these lowlife companies and want people to not only feel intimidated by you when you call but also when they read your worthless post.

The Do Not Call list has not worked since 2009.  Shortly after that date the new 5 top excutives of that division of the US government was found to be watching porn (4 men/1woman) 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.  In investigating as best I could I fopund these 5 people are still running the FCC with no reprimand.  This is exactly why the Do Not Call list no longer works 4 years later.  It worked for me prior to 2009.

The Do-Not-Call registry is a farce.  I have repeatedly reported the same company with the same number and the same human caller, and nothing has been done about it.  For over six months, I have received calls regarding lowering my credit card interest rates: I have no credit cards (thanks to Bill).  The Do-Not-Call registry is a waste of time and so is reporting it to its parent agency.  As for Penn Credit, I was called at 2045 hours on a Sunday.  That, to me, is intrusive.  I had no way to call back at the time as the recording says to call back during normal business hours.  So, how does one call back during normal business hours when its obvious that the company does not keep normal business hours.

I agree with the Gran on the go's post.  At 8pm I'm spending time with my family.  I, out of that normal curiosity, called them back, got a cheesy, (yes, I'm from Wisconsin), muzak music and someone finally came on the line and greeted me as Penn whatever...I asked her to repeat it and she did..I asked what the call was regarding, she said 'we handle personal business matters, please hold one moment Ma'am', sounded like she put me on hold when indeed she ended the call...I was a little irritated.  I called back to ask them to 'take my name off your list'  (which is ALL you have to say, and by law they HAVE to), but no one would pick up...the call just dropped so I can only assume they have caller ID.  I'll get 'em.  When an unwanted caller calls you for soliciting of any sort just do as I mentioned above and also get your numbers on the do-not-call lists...it really does help..Happy New Year Everyone!

If I am reading Linda Malone's message correctly, she is not talking about THE phone company, but the company calling her and leaving the voicemail message that is disturbing to her. I don't blame her. Just the curiosity factor alone would make the recipient want to find out who in the heck is calling their number.

I keep getting automated phone calls asking me to identify myself after a brief moment of silence the caller will say by listening you will agree that listening to the message you are the person in question, and if not hangup now. I pay the phone bill, the company has no rights to tell me when to hang up the phone!. I don't want any phone calls I don't do business like that, everything I do is in writing.
