Getting this on my cell phone. ID lookup says Bill Collector. I have no outstanding debt at all and they never leave a message.

February 13th, 2014 Aleta WI

Another one who doesn't leave a message. I do not answer calls if I do not know number. But if they are aggressive then I guess I won't answer. I do not have a job, and only have my car payment which is being paid so I have no idea why they are calling me.

PRA company is trying to collect on a debit that was paid in full with ddocumentation provided. Agent kept saying it was another account/loan that differs from the documentation provided. Rude and snide. After 2 weeks of daily harassment finally supervisor & addl documentation provided proves that the debt is ONE IN THE SAME AND ONE AND ONLY DEBT. Rude rude rude.....all this while immediate family mbr in hospice..

I've asked these people to stop calling, they refuse. They are incredibly rude. They call every day now claiming to be from the Student Loan department of a local college. They are trying to scare people into thinking they owe government student loan money. It is a major scam. I'm on the Do Not Call list but that doesn't seem to help anymore. Telemarketers don't care, they call anyway. Now I will log into my wireless online account and block the number from call me completely.

The sales guy hanged up on me when I asked "what's the name of the company?" How bad does a security alarm company have to be that they don't even want to tell you the name of the company? So basically whatever company it is they rely on spam calling, they ignore the do not call registry, they use a misleading sales pitch, and hope they can get somebody hooked who won't ask too many questions. Pathetic.

My phone number is on the DNC List, but it doesn't help. Complaints to the FTC & FCC fall on deaf ears. New Federal Law needs to be passed & enforced making Unwanted Telemarketing Calls to DNC listed numbers a Criminal Harassment violation. I encourage everyone to write their Federal Congressmen and Senators recommending new Federal Laws.

Received 2 calls today from this number. Caller ID shows Birmingham, AL. It is a recording that starts out quoting FBI crime statistics, I don't know for sure as I always hang up once I hear the recording. Think it is a telemarketer for a home security company.

I've been on the DoNotCall list for over 5 years but still get these calls which is frustrating.Plan to file a complaint with the FTC (see bottom of page) and hope others will do the same.

The Peace Officer Association of Georgia is the oldest and largest law enforcement group in the state. It supports over 7,000 members throughout GA. This benefit is open to any branch of law enforcement, i.e. (state troopers, sheriff deputies, city police, corrections officers, etc)

All transactions are done via mailouts, a call is placed to the sponsor asking which packet they want to receive (how much they are willing to give), then that packet is sent out with all the material needed to verify the identity of the organization, read more info, and return the pledge in a self-addressed envelope.

I just put the number in my phone number reject list of my cell phone. The calls were frequent (three within 10 minutes). They did leave a message asking me to call them about an important matter - and that it was not a sales or solicitation call. However, they did not identify what organization they were making calls for --- so I did not return the call. I deleted the message and I'm a little hazy or the details, but they gave a toll free no and I think said I should speak to Jessica(?).

It doesnt matter if its the second, or fifth ring, it always hangs up, possibly because we are on do not call list! So frustrating!

I kept getting missed calls on my cell for this number 205-313-2640 and 205-313-2601 with no message left. I finally got tired of who was calling and so I dialed the number and "Shante" answered. I told her I keep getting calls from this number and she told me they were looking for a "Bernard". I asked her don't they even listen to the voice mail to see if they are calling the right person and she said no. I told her to stop calling my cell as there is no "Bernard" and that I was going to send them a bill for wasted minutes on my cell. She gave me their address in Birmingham, AL and the company name is Amsher.

Hello mr/mrs ______. This is _____ with the peace officers
Association of georgia. How are you today (respond appropriately).

Mr.Mrs.______, the reason for the call is to let you know that the peace officers are having a sponsorship drive. We do this each year to support projects such as the death benefit fund. This can help families of officers that have been killed in the line of duty. Mr/mrs._____, also this year the peace officers' are sending out child identification kits. This can help law enforcement locate and identify missing children throughout georgia. Mr/mrs._____, we feel very strongly about these projects, but can't do them by ourselves. That's why we are giving you this call today to see if we can count on a small amount of support this year. Can we count on you? If yes, great!! We have several levels of support. We call them the gold, silver, bronze. Gold is the biggest but it does help the most, its 50$. Silver is 35$. The bronze is what most folks do its 25$. Which one can you do for us? If no. Thank you for your time and have a great day. (hang up). If irate, ask if he/she wants to be put on the do not call list.

Starting January 1, 2009, 100% of donations given to the peace officers of georgia (poag) will go to the poag and all sponsorship drives it does. The Birmingham, Al number used is just a number used to call people (NO DONATIONS ARE TRANSACTED OVER THE PHONE). The headquarters for poag is Reidsville,Ga. Any mail received comes from there and is distributed evenly to every peace officer that the death benefit fund applies to. This is only for the state of georgia.

I've been getting calls from this number saying that it's very important that Iget in touch with them, then they give me an 800 number. They never said the company or what they want or who the message is for. I could intercept a message meant for someone else.I don't answer calls if I don't know the person. This is the third day they have called and the first time they've left a message. The other number I was told to call was 800 246 9590. Who are these ppl and what to do they want?

I'm assuming it's that time of year when the Alabama Sheriff's, Firefighters, law enforcement, et.al, uses a telemarketing company to solicit donations and that is what this is. Be careful--if you accidentally take the call they will try to make you believe that you've been donating every year. DO NOT agree to receive any info about their organization because they consider it an agreement to make a donation. I've had friends that tried this and they threaten to turn you over to collections and they NEVER quit calling.

This is for 100% sure the collection agency www.amsher.com I know because on 2/27 they did a hard pull on my credit report and calls from this number immediately started. Amsher is the preferred collector for T-Mobile. I owe money to them. As someone else mentioned, never deal with a bill collector over the phone, to which I'll add unless the call is recorded. Exercise your rights provided under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and Fair Debt Collection Practice Act(FDCPA), google these terms. You can send a legal demand in writing blocking them from calling you. Bottom feeders such as Amsher will almost always accept a percentage settlement on account, as they pay around 10-20 cents on the dollar for the right to collect on your debt.

February 18th, 2009 John CA

We received calls from this number daily but never leave messages. one time I picked up the phone and asked them not to call again. the guy was so rude, said he's collection agent and and insist I am someone whom I have no idea.

I received this as well a few times a day. They are a collection agency. What they do is put a town, last name a first letter of the person they are looking for. The computer literally dials everyone with the last name and first letter that matches until they find the person. You have to answer and tell them its not you. Or call them back and they immediately know what number you calling from and ask for that person, you then can tell them its not you.

Telemarketer trying to collect donations for law enforcement. BEWARE...if you want to donate, contact your local law enforcement to find out how to donate directly. When you do it through these telemarketers only a VERY SMALL amount goes to the law enforcement while the majority goes as big profits for the telemarketers.
ALSO BEWARE...I gave to the Alabama sheriff's Association one year through the telemarketer, no problem, the next year I gave again but that last time, it took the telemarketers eactly 3 days to distribute my number amongst themselves and suddenly I had multiple calls per day from various different telemarketers supposedly collecting for various firefighters and law enforcement agencies. PLEASE, consider donating to them locally and NOT via these telemarketers.

Get calls day and night from 0897. There's no set pattern. This has been going on for months. I let the answering machine get it and only once has a man left a weird message asking for someone who doesn't live here anymore. It's getting very annoying and wish it would stop. I've never been asked for money, but it was creepy when he asked for the former resident by name (he did it in a weird way).

Irritated for the same reasons everyone else is. The same number appears on my caller ID, and because I do not recognize the #, I let the machine handle it. No one has ever left a message, and this person has called here 3-4 times a day for the past 2 weeks. I tried to call the number back, but I got the same message another poster got...it won't accept calls from special phones. (Whatever that's supposed to mean). In any event, I don't know what the connection is, but it appears to be police related. My husband is an officer too, so it now makes me wonder just where this person got our private home number? I'm going to block this number so we won't be pestered any longer.

April 15th, 2008 Dionne

Claimed to be collecting donations "to help find missing children and families of fallen officers". Sniff Sniff. I asked "what officers". Any fallen ones ma'am. According to my research, there is no Georgia Peace Officer's Association that contributes or supports the community. I asked for a website and he gave me the address "www.poag.com" scam! I invited him to call back after I had researched how much the charity actually received from my donation. I tried to call the number back and laso got the message about my special phone not being able to access that number.

I work for the company...it is pretty awesome i think. The main 3 organizations we call for are Peace officer's Association of Georgia, the Georgia association of Emergency medical services, and the Texas Association of emergency medical services. We are located in hoover alabama and we call statewide GA and TX. We represent non-profit civic charities and have to feed our families just as you people do. All of these allegations people make about legitimacy are crazy as we are clearly within the realm that the various state attorney generals allow for us. We call from a T-1 phone line and for the most part we hide our true location due to threatening/harassing phone calls. That is all the info I can provide at this time. If you have more questions, ask don't assume. Any attempt to trace/hack will be fruitless... PS: National Do Not Call Registry does NOT apply to non-profit organizations...

Call was delayed the person calling asked for my husband by name, male voice sounded altered some way.. very high. I said I would take message and he said "no thanks I'll try back". people are weird and this guy obviously has problems

September 24th, 2007 Hebeki GA

A message was left on my answer machine saying 'I'd like a cup of tea and some crumpets' in a fake British accent. That is why I looked up the number online instead of just calling back. I thought it was a bit strange.

September 12th, 2007 Nancy Hall GA

This is the peace officer boiling room looking for a donation. I have given for years, but seeing how they seem to harass others, maybe this will be the last year. The same person calls every year (for the past three). We originally began giving in memory of a fallen officer related to my husband, who has since passed. I will follow up when the packet comes so you will all know EXACTLY the address, etc. this comes from.

July 26th, 2007 Jackson GA

I recieved a call from the 0897 number, and a male voice asking for me by name. Since I did not recognize the number I asked if I could take a message that he was not in at this time. He stated it was a courtesy call from the peace officers association and that he would call back. Would not leave a message or give a name. This is concerning to me due to getting a letter today in the mail saying my info from a check processing agency had been recently compromised. I am wondering if this is a scam......

This is not the first call I have received from this number. Once before a man asked for donations for bullet proof vests for officers. He called and knew me by name. When I told him that I don't give my credit card number over the phone he hung up. The same number showed up on my caller I.D. and the answering machine picked it up before I could get to the phone, then I saw that it was the same number that called before.

I received a call from this number and the guy said he was from the Georgia Peace Officer's association. When I asked him why he was calling from an Alabama phone number, he went silent and hung up. This must be a scam caller. There is a "Peace Officer's Association of Georgia" but it doesn't see to be collecting money and is in Reidsville, Georgia, close to Savannah.

May 29th, 2007 Tim

They have called before and hung up when I answered. They asked for me by name when my wife answered, then hung up.

Today they called again and I answered, "Hello, this is the Clayton County Sheriff's office fraud unit". The dude started apologizing for having the "wrong" number and said good night. He obviously got "skeered and respectful" when I said Sheriffs Office!

May 29th, 2007 mumme FL

So annoying! I'm on the "no call" list also. Have had calls all week. Last one today. When answered, no response. If machine answers, no message. I have answered an unknown # in the past that has been the police asking for donations but have not noticed if the # is the same as this latest one.

WISE EYES,
We have received several reports concerning telephone solicitations for
donations benefiting the Wise County Sheriff's Office. The numbers that the
calls come from are:
940-383-8291----Texas State Troopers Association (T.S.T.A.)
205-313-0897----Unknown association with a recording answering:
"we are sorry, you have dialed a number that cannot be reached from this
special phone"
The Sheriff's Office participates in one (1) association and that is the
Sheriff's Association of Texas (S.A.T.) The S.A.T. DOES NOT conduct any
telephone solicitations. The recent membership drive for the Sheriff's
Association is complete for this year and was done via U.S. Mail directly to the
citizens of Wise County. ( Not to mention it was advertised in local papers and
comes with a letter signed by me) There are State Troopers Associations which
do solicit with telephone solicitations. If you receive a call from anyone
wanting money, verify their company and or cause BEFORE you donate anything.
To be even more safe, have them mail you some information and contact our
office at 940.627.5971 and speak with Sgt. Debbie Denney to assist you with
verifying legitimacy of the association.

I have had 3 calls from 205-313-0897 and 7 calls from 205-314-0289. I believe it is the same company/people from both numbers. I don't talk to them but I have been tracing their calls. Got a letter from the phone company to say the call was traced but they couldn't tell me who it was. I have to have the police in my city to call the annoyance center, but they don't consider this an emergency so they won't do it. WHY CAN'T SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING!!! Being on the don't call list is worthless!

April 27th, 2007 L.M. GA

Called earlier spoke to my wife asking for me. She asked who was calling and the guy said "Peace Officers". He asked if I would be home tonight and she asked what it was regarding and he claimed it was about a donation. She said it sounded really phony because usually phone donation callers work off a script and this guy was clearly not at all prepared. She told him we don't give to charities over the phone.

Seriously, I don't know why this person called, but clearly his stated intention is false. Surely the phone company could do something about this if they wanted to. He used to make calls in Alabama according to the record here, and now he's calling Georgia. Tennessee or S.C. next?
