Annoying phone call had it removed from cell phone in Oct.28,2010 and now it's back again.how do I permently stop this number from calling with out changing my number.They also try to leave a voicemail with out any message.Now have to remove from missed & voice mail what a pain in the @$%&**^#.I have better things to do than answer unknown phone calls.Will not answer if no name or message is not given.This is (DIRECTTV) answer when they want to harrass customers who cancel their service and then they say we turned it back on after you tell them you don't want service and try to bill people who cancel service.

I filed a bar complaint against him for his conduct in having his employees write legal letters on his letter head.
That is the unlicensed practice of law

I just downloaded a call blocker on my phone. So they will not even be able to reach me again.If they are from collection agency then they could send a letter with a official letterhead.

This call is from Allied Collection company. They search the phone book for similiar names to what they are looking for and then start an autodialer with a messaage of "This is an attempt to collect a dept, this call will be record" and it repeats over and over again with no one on the line. From my understanding this is a fraudulent company. Please report this to the FTC. www.ftc.gov

THIS IS OUR PUBLIC EDUCATION CAMPAIGN ABOUT POLICE FIRE VETERAN"S AND CHILDREN'S CHARITIES. It can happen anywhere and when it does we would love to hear from you.

As for the group on this page, it would be a good idea to let your fundraiser know we are out here and now you know that we are looking at them too. I would not let them misrepresent because the first time they do and we catch them, it's all over with but the crying.

Officer Down Foundation,

This is a message from Rev. James revjames@pfcl.org of the Holy Land Spiritual Church Inc. in Maryland and its integrated auxiliary Police Fire Crimeline (The Badge Fraud Tip Reporting Hotline) www.badgefraud.org

I am only going to tell you this one time. Don't you dare come out here on to this or any other board and try to say you are trying to help fallen police officers. You are not trying to help anyone but yourselves. You think I am going to let you talk to these people who are trying to protect themselves from you in that condescending manner. Let me see if I can explain this to your two week on the job backside. Officer Down Foundation's program is to teach Crisis Chaplaincy to Chaplains, it is not to provide benefits to the families of officers killed, they only pitch that because their real program would not get them one single donation, and every time you say they are providing benefits to families of officers killed it is a lie and a misrepresentation and is potentially criminally actionable against you personally as well as your bosses David Fair, Paul Kutac, Phil Leconte and David Deriks.

I will bet you did not know that those are the same group of guys that run the Police Protective Fund and American Association of Police Officers and the Junior Police Academy. These men are so honest and hard working that even after several states sued the pants off of them they had to go out and start another identical fake charity. Remember "Operation False Charity"? Yeah, wow, they were part of it, and now look at who has come to defend them and their new carbon copy of the Multi State proven fraud the Police Protective Fund and by extension The Crisis Chaplin Project.

You, a person that I already know has maybe 2 weeks experience on the phone. I am going to offer you some sage advice from one of your elders in what is left of that industry. GET A NEW JOB! This one is about to disappear.

Now, you have called into 6 of my 50 states and misrepresented yourselves, Maryland, Virginia, Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee and North Carolina and that is a problem for your organization because that is where my organization is located and our mission is to protect charitable dollars specifically raised in the name of Officers Killed in the Line of Duty. Now let me tell you what my organization does. We search out and report fraudulent Police Fire Veteran's and Children's Charities and their professional fundraisers. We protect the money of the people who protect us.

If anyone reading this wants to help with a donation for us to keep going after these scams, feel free to email me and lets talk. revjames@pfcl.org And unlike David Fair attempting to claim 501 c3 status before it is granted, Churches, like the Holy Land Spiritual Church in the United States are granted automatic 501 c3 status so you know you can deduct your donation from your taxes when the law allows.

We also recruit former professional police fundraisers as volunteers to help us go after groups like yours and you would be welcome to join us as well. And we always want to hear any tips on fraudulent activity in public safety charities so we can report them too. The days of diverting money from non profits and charities that really give their money to the families of officers killed in the line of duty, are OVER!

What a coincidence that would be huh? A church and a Minster going after a Chaplain, I would say God called one of us and the other has a big problem not just on earth, but after life too.

Do you know how much easier our job would be if your Officer Down Foundation did not exist?

I am not the kind of minister you are probably familiar with that gets up on Sunday morning to preach about Fire and Brimstone. I am the kind of minister that BRINGS Fire and Brimstone to your doorstep.

See the problem for your organization is that because of your fraudulent activity, you are making us expend our donor’s money to investigate you because you see, that is what OUR donors (Holy Land Spiritual Church) gave their money too and they knew full well that they were giving their money for us to go after groups like yours.

That would be the exact opposite of your group where the donor’s think they are giving to the families of officers killed in the line of duty but what you dont tell them is that the money they donate is really going to David Fair's personal mission of this "Crisis Chaplain" concept.

Well if you did not know we existed before I am not surprised, they never tell you phone jockey's anything, but you are about to know we exist now.

It is our duty and responsibility to protect our donor’s money and the only way for us to do that in the case of the Officer Down Foundation is for them to shut down voluntarily or we must sue the pants off of your group until you are ended. Oh and that is not all you have to look forward too, in North Carolina where you are calling, what you are doing is considered to be a class H felony.

What happens, is when you answer, it will show in the computer that it is a valid number. All it is, is a generic collection agency for Direct TV. They call the number that was listed for that person and that bill. If you answer, they know to continue calling. Eventually, you will get a live person. Dont want to deal with them? Tell them that they have the wrong number and to not harass you anymore. They have called me everyday for about 2 weeks and today a live person asked for the lady that used to have my number. She must have been popular... because I've had this number for a year and people still call for her.

May 14th, 2010 Teresa

That same number calls me every day, then a phone rings and they hang up

May 9th, 2010 Al NH

Firt of all, do not answer them at all when they call. Let your answering machine pick it up, it will go to voice mail and they will hang up. Do not speak to them for any reason whatsoever. Try to make a habit of scanning all your calls to 4 rings, this way if you recognize the party then you can pick it up. Here is what my answering machine gives callers for a message, " I do not answer unknown callers, if you wish to leave a message, do so after the prompt, thank you". This will eventually get rid of your annoying calls. If you get more than your share of any toll free calls report them to your attorney, State Atty Gen. Office and the FTC.

Beware Directv Users
I live in Maine and canceled my Directv account one month early from my agreement after having awful service and no help. They got angry and told me I couldn't cancel them until next month. So I downgraded my service to a basic package and told them to send me the bill and that as soon as my agreement ended I wanted out. Because we got such poor service, I had another provider come and install new service that I'm thrilled with, DISH TV IS AWESOME! It was worth it to view my programs clearly even if I had to pay for the bill for one month twice.
Ever since, I've had nothing but problems with Directv. I paid them over the amount 'they said' that I owed originally and have the canceled checks to prove it. I sent back all of their equipment, dusted and shiny clean. Their thanks . . . I got bombared with new bills totalling over $600.00 saying at first that I didn't send they're equipment back. That halted after 3 months of aggrevation. Now they've invented new claims and without sending me any kind of a bill, they forwarded it to a collection agency who is now harrassing me day and night. I owed them for 1 month of basic charges that has suddenly turned into hundreds and hundreds of dollars. They refused to honor the basic packaged I'd downgraded to and instead upgraded to the most expensive.
This number starts calling at 7am and doesn't quit until after 9pm some nights. My 88 year-old grandmother lives with me and let me tell you she's not too impressed when she get woken up. I'll be changing my number this week, so I know it will stop, but I wanted other people to know to NEVER, EVER, deal with Direct tv. Not only does their sevice suck, but they are vicious where your credit is concerned. I think it's disgusting.

April 19th, 2010 Joan

These people call up to 3 times a day, usually around dinner time. I haave never picked up the phone and do not intend to do so. I got my phone a few months ago, have never had Direct TV, and am not aware I owe any unpaid debts. One of these days, when I find time, I will report them to the USG. Let he USG find out if they are calling the right person or not, and if not, then time to make them stop calling.

"This is Grace White calling from the business office. Please return my call..." Well, Ms. White - it might be a good idea to say what business office you're calling from. No doubt you are a collection agent. You go, Gracie. Love you.

If you have COMCAST phone service, you can block numbers from getting through! Use this service to ignore people like our darling Ms. White.

These Companies use predicative automatic dialers to make their calls. The computer will auto dial a set amount of numbers (say 100) but based on time of day, area they are calling , etc.. they beleive that only 10 peolpe will answer the phone - so they only have 10 reps available to handle these calls. So if you happen to be the 11th person to answer then you will get hung up on or just hear dead air.

In their system you will be listed as a no answer and plugged back in the system and called again. Basically you will be called until you pickup and are connected with an agent. Of course when you answer you have to deal with a person - which may or may not help you in your situation. Also you can be removed from their system - it should not take more than 24 hours to do so. The compamy I used to work for (sales not collections) had a do not call list that was updated every night during the nightly backups and reports. So don't believe them if they say they can't do it or that it will take more than 24 hours.

December 31st, 2009 T wright VA

Its not a scam, its Direct TV selling off a bill to allied interstate.
That company basicaly said I will pay 1 cent for every dollar that is owed to you.
Now, These people are calling us 3-4 times a day asking for payments and never tell us who we defaulted on.
President Bush did pass a law saying No more Haressement).
We are being harassed so record everything when they call, have phone bills showing that they do call 2-5 times a day.
Guess what, we sue for 10 times the amount we are supposed to owe and we make money.
If I am wrong then I am, I do know the law!!!

December 31st, 2009 Tim Wright VA

These people call me like clock work, 5am, 7am, 5pm Hawaii Time.
Presedent Bush passed a bill saying that these people cant call (Bill collectors) aND Harrase you.
I guess they think a new President that law is no longer in effect.
Tell the truth, you and I can sue that company that keeps calling us for harrassment!!!!!

I actually got a real person when they called tonight. They were asking for someone that I don't know, and the woman stated that they would remove my # from their list, and to have a nice day. I was shocked, since normally when they call, I get a please hold, ring, then disconnect.

When Ipulled this number up in the white pages it is listed as a cell phone. What are they trying to do? Run up a phone bill so high that they can't pay it. It's ridiculous to say the least.

The caller stated that he works for the Police Protection Fund and that he wanted to speak to my mother to thank her for her last contribution toward a fallen police officer. After a very rude conversation, I googled the Police Protection Fund here in Indianapolis and found that in 2006, a very small Indy newspaper had broken a story with the help of the Johnson County Sheriff's Office that the office here and nationwide was a Telephone Solicitation Scam. Tax information showed the organization had a 2002 income of $4.2 million dollars.

October 13th, 2009 Kari IN

This number calls our home once a week at least and my husband always tells them we can't afford to make a donation with the economy the way it is. They never take no for an answer and we just have them send us stuff in the mail and then we throw it away. They persist to call asking why we have't mailed our payment, yet still not taking no for an answer, so we hang up, but the calls go on and on....

They call constantly, but never leave a message on VM. The calls are made to a pay-as-you-go phone that I got recently. I have not given the number out to anyone other than family members so the calls obviously cannot be properly directed to me. Presumably they are making the calls randomly or to someone who formerly had the number that is now assigned to the phone. I have added the number to the National Do Not Call Registry. I also intend to report them to the Federal Trade Commission for violations of multiple sections of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and to request that the Commission commence administrative enforcement of the Act pursuant to Section 814 thereof. Even if the debt they are calling about were owed by me (which they obviously are not), their procedures would still violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. I recommend that everyone who receives calls from this number report the calls to the Federal Trade Commission. Hopefully, that will put these idiots out of business. If we are lucky, maybe a few of the owners of this disreputable business will be jailed so they can't start another business and do what they are doing all over again.

August 11th, 2009 Terry OH

Constantly calls all hours. Finally answered after 40 calls. Asked for party I didn't know. Told them they had wrong number and when I started to ask them not to call

June 10th, 2009 Cynthia

I am getting calls almost daily at different times of day from 877-350-9743. Can't figure out who calls and then disconnects automatically. I no longer answer when I see the number on caller ID, but the calls continue. There must be a way to find out who is doing this?

June 6th, 2009 Michelle PA

I get calls several times a day. When I answer it says "hold please" about 3 times and then disconects. I have no idea who it is and I am not going to waste my time in calling them back.

I have received numerous calls from this number (probably 10 or more), at various times of the day, even in the early morning or late evening. Occasionally, I'll hear a word or two before a disconnect, but mostly, it's an automatic hang up. This is my business cell as well.

Collection agency for a disputed debt that has been decided in my favor by American Express for services from Direct TV that do not exist. Very rude - read off of a script when you are trying to give them information. Ignores letters disputing debt and State Attorney General's office which has an open file on them that they will not respond to.

I also receive calls from this number at the same times 3 times a day. Morning, afternoon, and then around 6-7ish. I answer... they ALWAYS hang up on ME! I am trying to understand why they call... they just hang up even as soon as I say hello. I call back and wait on hold, every time I get someone. I say hello... they hang up. The furthest I got was saying that I get calls every day what is it about... hang up

This is a business cell phone that they call. I see from reading other posts that is common. I do NOT understand why a company would call people every day to just hang up on them.

We've had the same experiences as many others on this post. Everytime they call, they ask for my husband. If he is not available, they never leave a message and never solicit me. On the most recent call, they did not even identify themselves - I *69'd the number (we don't have caller ID) and looked it up online where I found several sites like this with complaints about this so-called Police Protective Fund. We are also on the Do Not Call list (first Indiana, now also federal) and I will also start a log of these calls in preparation for a complaint to the Attorney General. This is obviously a fraudulent - or at most barely legal - operation. If you want to support the police, give to your local FOP for their charitable events like children's summer camps and the Christmas "shop with a cop" for low income children.

I got the same message that was cut off to call this person back and never did. A couple days later (today) she called back, Lei Mikals herself, only she called me at WORK. Older new yorker type, strong accent. Says I have to pay up $800 for a credit card I never used or they are coming after me. Whatever. I told her I'm not sending money to a faceless person over the phone and to send me something in the mail, something tangible I can look at, and she said no, she had nothing to send. kept trying to get personal with me, tell me stories, get me to soften up, and tried to convince me she was trying to HELP me. I told her I would think about her settlement "offer" of $650 but I'm not calling her back. I also told her if she called me again at work again I would hang up on her. She said fifteen times that she worked for this lawyer dude and I had to say look sweetie, you don't scare me, if you want to fly to my state and go after me in a court of law for $800, be my frakking guest. What is the story with these people, they are just a slime of the earth collection agency, right? 30 minutes later she called my cell phone and left a voicemail like we had never even talked, looks like she needs to pay attention to who she has already called. Should I worry about these goons or blow them off?

Who ever this company is calls saying there is some sort of "case" against me the return number to call is 1-866-933-6672 ext 249 & 252 Lee Michaels. I have received 3 messages from this person over the last 3 months but have yet to see one piece of paper regarding ANY case against me in the mail. The company name is never revealed in the voice mail either. When I called the number the company name was simply MMRC. I have no intentions of calling this idiot back of course.

Spoke to an agent of the company who claims that she is the only supervisor and all calls end with her. Her name is Terri Young and she is EXTREMELY RUDE. She has a has a gang member way of trying to talk down to a person to get them to adhere to her demands. She threatens you by saying that she works directly with the courts, she tells you that you are a thief and that you are going to jail for stealing, etc. She actually works for an attorney who has this debt collection company listed above(National Management Recovery Corporation).

I've had this same phone number for over ten years. I also have been living in this house for two years. I asked where they got this number and the lady said she got it from a list someone sent to her office. I thought it was strange that the number had a 501 area code.

It's the National Recovery Management Corp.---debt collectors. www.nationalrecovery.net. Their website says their employees are trained by in-house council about the importance of the FDCPA. Yeah, well, probably more like trained to bend it and get around it. File a complaint with your state's attorney general if they break the law. Look up the FDCPA and get to know your rights!

I have two missed calls from this number today. I ran a search and the number is located in Pompano Beach, FL but they want me to pay to find out who owns the business. I hope I get to answer next time. I have a few things I'd like to share with them.

June 18th, 2008 Steve OH

These are the same clowns who have called from other numbers in the past. They leave a message telling you to call back regarding a personal business matter and that this is not a sales or solicitation call. Most likely debt collectors who are consistently calling wrong numbers and basically just leaving harrassment calls via recording looking for people who don't even live at the residence they're calling. Some of the lowest form of scum on earth.

Divorce final 5 mos. ago. they asked our address, told me his address was different (new address after leaving here 1-1/2 yrs ago. Called back 5 mins. later and asked them their company name and how they got this number for him. Bill collector rudely informed me that I didn't need to know who they were, they knew that I had called earlier, that she didn't understand why I would call them back because they had taken this number off their records and that I should NOT call them back! Then the lady stated (as sarcastically as she could) "have a nice day!" and hung up. Jerks.

They called me today at 1:14PM, Caller ID: Police Protecti Phone: 317-592-9488

Think the hang up calls are an auto dial to see if the number is still good. Once somebody answers, a real person will call within hours up or within the week.

I've told them many times that I want my number removed. They say they will but never do. So, if we all complain enough to our Attorney General, maybe we can get a restraining order and freeze their Indiana account like Missouri's Attorney General was able to accomplish.

Also see www.johnsoncountysheriff.com (this is from March 2006):

Telephone Solicitation Scam Warning:

"Police Protective Fund"

Telephone solicitors are calling homeowners in the Central Indiana area claiming to represent an organization called the "Police Protective Fund." The telemarketer states that they would appreciate your $50.00 donation and you will receive a sticker to place on your vehicle showing that you have donated money to the fund, which they claim raises money for the families of fallen police officers and also shows the donors support for local law enforcement.

A recent research article by Shauta Marsh posted in the Indianapolis Nuvo Newsmagazine found that this is a nationwide scam. Tax information shows the organization had a 2002 income of $4.2 million dollars and that only $48,000 of that amount went to "undisclosed members." $3.7 million dollars of their received donations went to pay the telemarketing firms calling the donors homes.

Sheriff Terry McLaughlin suggests that rather than providing money to this scam, you instead show your support for local law enforcement by telling the next Sheriff's Deputy you see that you appreciate the job they do, or a simple smile and wave.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office thanks you for your support!

Better Business Bureau says at www.fortwayne.bbb.org :

"3. Police Protective Fund, an Austin, Texas organization, is soliciting throughout Indiana. The Indiana Fraternal Order of Police has stated that Police Protective Fund has no affiliation with them whatsoever. According to the organization's 2003 Form 990, they brought in $4,842,738. Fundraising expenses were $4,262,760, or 88%. The BBB standard states that no more than 35% of related contributions be spent on fundraising."

A company i worked for many years ago was what i thought a legitimate fundraising organization but after two months i discovered it was a scam and i quit.I found out that they were in no way associated with the organization they were claiming to collect donations for.Also that some of the employess were scamming the donators by going to their residences to collect the donation but then would pocket the money.. IF YOU GET A CALL GET WHAT INFO YOU CAN FRONM THEM THEN ASK THEM TO CALL YOU BACK ON SUCH AND SUCH A DAY THEN IN THE MEAN TIME RESEARCH THE CALLER WITH THE INFO YOU OBTAINED

got a call from this number, they left an 800 number on my answering machine. I called it, and it is a collections agency, not sure of the name of the company.

Police Protecti calls sometimes three times a day & I don't answer their calls anymore. Prior to Christmas, I asked 3 diffrent callers to take me off their list since I am on the no call list. It still continues...and I am getting VERY upset!

My daughter answered. They asked to speak to mom or dad and when my wife got on the line they hung up. Used #69 to check number.

I answered the phone but no one was there. I dialed #69 to see who it was and the number was 317-592-9488.

I did a search on the internet for this number and found this site.

Call was around 8:12pm on Jan 23, 2007.

They keep calling me! I'm never home when they call and they never leave a message. The number is an Indiana number and I'm on the Do Not Call list, so if they are from this state, they should know they're violating!? Right?!

When I called the number, they only referred to themselves as "Business Office". While waiting for representative, the on hold recording reminded me to have my business and any insurance info available. I didn't wait for a rep.

POLICE PROTECTI called and opened with a rapid explaination about not using outside fund raisers. When I mentioned that I had experienced similar misleading tactics, the caller hung up on me. :-)
