when I answer, there was dead silence.

No msg. I don't answer these types of calls. According to SPOKEO Reverse Lookup: “This phone number is flagged as a telemarketer”

Same story as reported by others - a recorded msg asking for Nicole Mason - then push 1, 2 or 3. They claim to be attempting to collect on an outstanding debt. Voice appears to be that of a foreign black female. Has SCAM written all over it.

Definitely a scam. They literally call me at least 3 times a day. Now it's been for the last few weeks. But I've received calls asking for the same name in the past. The name is no one i know and is in no way similar to mine. I just tried calling them back for the second time. A lady picked up, i asked her who was calling. She said some abbreviation like hsp. I asked her again a few times and she was very reluctant to answer first she said they had at least 10 different locations haha. I asked her again, she then said that they were affiliated with Harvard collections. I kept pushing it and she hung up on me. I called again. This time they hung up right away. The next time I called, i asked the lady why they keep calling me. She "transferred me" to someone who said they were looking for a Nicole Mason. This bitch was very unprofessional and sounded like some big black woman. She was also extremely rude. I told them it was a ridiculous scam and they hung up again. We'll see what happens next but I'm definitely going to get my lawyer involved.

They call daily, often more than once a day, and never leave a message. When I answer the call, a computer says they have a message for Alex Miller, press 1 if you are Alex Miller, 2 if he's not home, 3 if this is a wrong number.
It doesn't matter which number is pressed, the call then plays a one-minute piano loop and will continue for hours unless you hang up.
I called them today and a polite lady answered and promised to remove my number from their system. She seemed to be well-informed, though she declined to identify the company.

They are relentless! They have called her over a dozen times and have been told my wife has not lived here in over 6 months. I suggested they check with the DMV to get a current address on her.

They refuse to stop calling, and if they continue.....I will get me a lawyer and for once in my life, I will be like these jag nuts collecting free money.

I'm tired of being Mr. Nice Guy....

I kept getting repeated messages for someone I have never heard of, but who shares my first initial/last name, on my answering machine. A recording said, "Press 1 if you are Lou Smith. Press 2 if you are not Lou Smith." Of course, my answering machine can't press anything. Then that same message was repeated. Then, the recording said, "If you are still on this call, you are verifying that you are Lou Smith." How frustrating! Do they not allow for answering machines? Anyway, after receiving about 10 of these calls - always on my answering machine - I called and got my number removed from their list. I had to ask the name of the company or I wouldn't know, and then I looked it up online. It's Harvard Collection Services, 4839 N. Elston Ave, Chicago, IL 60630. They were abrupt and didn't apologize for my inconvenience, so have at it with them - no love lost there!
