BE VERY CAREFUL when you call the number 555-555-5555 and other similar phones. You do not know but these phones are used by INVESTIGATORS AND AGENCIES, PUBLIC AND GOVERNMENT for information.

When this people ask about X person, never say, or left, or is sleeping; there already gave information that X person living there.-

Never that the call numbers of telephones and rare (or that you do not know that phone number), never give information to any person, or if the person live or not live there; they simply do not take the call or close the phone.-

September 19th, 2013 Chris CT

They called my husband and left a voicemail that said would we be willing to transfer my granddaughter to another school district due to kindergarten overcrowding. As it isn't our call to make decisions, I notified her mother who called the school. The school knew nothing about this. Now it isn't even credit card fraud unless they are trying to get tuition payments???

June 24th, 2013 KimbelryKoerber NC

This is the 1-800 number attached to a supposed debt collection agency called "ERC's Enhanced Recovery". This is a computer voice calling about a bill I do not have. The original number is 2065573044.

June 12th, 2013 Scott OK

This is ERC (Enhanced Recovery Corporation) a debt collector. If they are calling for someone that is not at this number, CALL THEM BACK! Their automated response allows you to report a wrong number! Being on the do not call registry does not stop someone who has a business relations hip with you, they will be unaware if you are the new owner of a number of someone who previously had the number. (Your phone provider does not notify all collection agencies "Hey this number no longer belongs to who it did 6 weeks ago"

They called me 3 times this morning in about 20 minutes. I was asleep (I work until 2am) They left no message, but I called back and was prompted to press 1 to report a wrong number, so I did. And if you call and actually speak to someone, don't try to talk about the account. Tell them "This is my number, you are calling me, and I want you to stop." Even if you are in debt, you have the right to instruct the debt collector to stop calling your phone. Then, if they continue, you have the right to sue them. You can't stop them trying to collect a debt you legally owe, but you do have the right to forbid them to call you. And if it's not your debt, then you have the right to inform them and tell them, if you want to keep calling me about a debt that isn't mine, we can meet up in court.

June 6th, 2013 Hummer NV

They have called us several times, left no message. I have texted them three times telling them to stop. They are already on the Govt Do Not Call List. I owe no bills in Florida. I have never been in Florida.

May 31st, 2013 dont stress

Please don't let assholes who are telemarketers or scammers bother you. We get over 40 hangups a day. We can't afford caller id so we just ignore it. Its a pain in the butt to keep answering calls only to be hungup but if this is the worst thing in your day, you are on a great path for a great day. We are fighting to buy our home back from a foreclosure so there are bigger things in life to stress over. I have had strokes, emergency surgeries, my sister had breast cancer and is wonderfully a 7 yr survivor, so pick your battles. Let the assholes hangup on you.

They are a collections company based in FL.
www.erccollections.com
Their toll-free number is on their website.
Call the number that called you, and you'll hear their menu. The first option is to get them to stop calling by telling them they are calling the wrong number, all you do is press one. This is the recording.
"Thank you for calling ERC. Press one if you'd like to report a wrong number."
Do it. Maybe it will stop.
To remove your number from our system, please enter the full 10 digit number and press one."
After you input your number, you'll verify that they got it right (the automated system will ask) and then they will let you know they will remove you from their system and calls will stop.

February 16th, 2013 Don Westover FL

I have gotten more than a dozen calls from whom ever the caller represents soI called the number to find out why they were calling me. Of course I got a recrding but it said "If you wish to have your number removed from our list press one", I did and that was the end of the call. I suspect you won't need three guesses to figure out how effective that was -- today I got two more calls from the 800 number. My next move will be to call my States Atorney's office and see if he can take some action to end this harrassment.

Seriously, they are not a collection agency. I believe that it is an identity theft scam. they get random phone numbers to call in order to get your information, while they pretend to be a collection agency., because lets face it, a majority of the population is in debt somehow.

January 16th, 2013 h8 these calls NY

this # calls repeatedly. i answered today and got an automated message that it wasn't a sales call etc and then asked me to press 1. i hung up. i have 2 old (2006) debt claims which are expiring soon. one is from sprint/nextel which is a joke since i never had either service. after a year of harassment from them, with me demanding proof that i had service (which they could not provide since i never had service with them), they went away. the other is a bogus home depot citibank bill which i paid in full which sometimes they admit, and other times, they demand proof. i had contacted a lawyer over this and he said to ignore the calls as the debt is expiring soon and it would cost me more in legal fees than to pay the alleged debt. such crap!

January 9th, 2013 Resident47 RI

It's never my intention to oversimplify or mislead, (even two years after I comment) so I'll try to patch my prior remarks.

I was in fact referring to a variable-by-state SoL for a creditor filing a collection suit, one which begins running at the point of contractual default. For example, you walk from a Visa card account in Kentucky. The original creditor or a junk debt buyer has five years to safely get you sued from your date of last activity or last payment. (Determining the precise date isn't always straightforward.)

Any SoL running two decades would be the result of a creditor winning a judgment. At that point, you have a judge saying that crummy debt is valid and the collector can take its sweet time bleeding you. Obviously, you don't want that around your neck like a boat anchor, so you first concentrate on beating or avoiding the creditor lawsuit. If you are sued after that five years in Kentucky, or whatever period in your state, SoL is a killer affirmative defense and a FDCPA cause of action. In English, you can make the plaintiff pay *you* for suing over a mold-encrusted account and get their case dismissed.

Now for the curious .... When I ran the numbers in Q2 2012, the national average of all state SoL in the four major debt categories (Oral, Written, Promissory, Open) was a bit under six years. Fourteen states, or 28% of the US, had at least one SoL which exceeds six years. A smaller handful punishes debtors with two or more long SoL clocks. Off the cuff, if a bank can't get its s&it together within four years after your default it really has no room to accuse you of bad money management.

The caller claimed they could cut my credit card interest rate by half - all I needed to do was give them my credit card number and they would process a debt relief action. They claimed the process would take one week. They promised to call back when they were done. I refused to succumb and told him no! He told me I was a dumb ass and hung up.

This guy also called my wife. All of his calls seem to be to our cell phones and if he is calling from a cell phone it will be impossible to stop him. There are desperate people out there that will give him what he wants.

Sadly, Jen, the ERC reps will never believe you. Mistrust of any ''wrong number'' claim is standard procedure at all the rogue collection agencies. You will never get satisfaction from a verbal request, and number blocking turns into an arms race you will lose. Send a ''cease communication'' notice via USPS Certified with return card. This is the method promoted by the FTC and many consumer watchdogs, and the only way to set a legal landmine, as such a notice is ignored at their risk of a lawsuit from you.

They call asking for different people, then if you call them back to say that you don't know that person, or that person doesn't live there, they ask if someone else lives there, until they get the person they are actually looking for! They never believe that whoever they are looking for doesn't actually live there, and to be honest they could care less!

Congress passed the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), 47 U.S.C. §227, to curtail the use of automated dialers and prerecorded messages to cell phones without the permission of the consumer. Notwithstanding the passage of the TCPA, many businesses have harassed consumers by placing literally dozens and sometimes hundreds of telephone calls to cell phones.
On May 11, 2012, the United States Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit issued an opinion in the case of Teresa Soppet v. Enhanced Recovery Company, LLC. In the litigation, the Plaintiffs sued a debt collector attempting to collect a telephone bill from a third party. Plaintiffs sued Defendant for Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) per telephone call and One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($1,500.00) per telephone call if willful.
In response to the lawsuit, Enhanced Recovery Company asserted that it was not liable under the TCPA because it had consent from the party the debt collector intended to call — the actual customer of AT&T. In rejecting the argument of Enhanced Recovery Company, the 7th Circuit recognized that Plaintiffs are entitled to protection under the TCPA as they were the “called party” under the meaning of the TCPA.

Lowery, Daniel, et al: Debt collectors are notoriously deaf to verbal requests. It's not so much incompetence as the policy of lawbreaking debt collectors across the industry to assume you are a liar until you give an answer which gets one paid.

To a ''not me'' case I always recommend putting the agency on notice, just as you would if you were the target and the debt claim was invalid. Send a ''cease-communication'' notice via USPS Certified with return card. This is the method promoted by the FTC and many consumer watchdogs, and the only way to set a legal landmine, as such a notice is ignored at their risk of a lawsuit from you. You may already be due some payback if you can prove you've endured abusive or misleading treatment in an effort to collect debt.

If you're not the intended victim, send the collection agency a cease-comm via USPS Certified with return card. The FTC and many consumer watchdogs explain how to draft one.

Rain: As strongly suggested by prior comments, Enhanced Recovery Corporation is a debt collector. Potential privacy violations, and the lawsuits they inspire, are making them shy around message recorders.

John and others with mobile phones need to inform the collector what sort of phone is being jangled. The FTC doesn't want you paying for collection calls. Also, collectors are not in sales, therefore are exempt from DNC.

If you are receiving repeated, misdirected, and/or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the FDCPA, the federal law which regulates collector behavior and provides you simple tools for your own defense. It grants you control of how you are contacted, the right to dispute debt claims, and the means to sue at low cost. Learn your rights and first response tactics at FTC-dot-gov.

Seems I need to retract a statement from March. I was recently disabused regarding the FDCPA definition of ''consumer'', which is the following: ''any natural person obligated or allegedly obligated to pay any debt.'' The FTC's rather generic choice of nomenclature is frustrating but may have been meant to neutralize the references to those who the law covers. Calling them ''debtors'' or even ''alleged debtors'' could be too accusatory.

So if a skip trace call fails to declare or hint that you owe something, there is no statutory prize waiting. Sending cease-comms is still strong medicine and TCPA may still be invoked in many cases. The FDCPA still covers ''any person'' regarding plenty of other sins, like abusive treatment and deceptive practice.

NID: You have no external proof that ERC got your request. It's a cheap excuse to keep calling and it's not right, but that is what you should prepare for if you try to revoke consent verbally or electronically. The surest way is to send a cease-comm notice via USPS Certified with card. The FTC and many consumer watchdogs explain how to draft one.

Since you were given a "reference number", ERC might think it has a claim on you. Be careful to only take away phone calls and dispute the claim if you get the required dunning letter next week. If locked under a total cease-comm, a collector will be more motivated to file suit. By the way, their calls to mobile phones are banned under FDCPA if you inform them. Just one of those useful things you'll pick up if you do some homework as I'd advised three months ago.

In a half-arsed way ERC is obeying at least one rule with the clumsy self-authentication messages. Such things are a common industry repsonse to a thorny problem. The legal conflict is that a collector must make "meaningful disclosure" of its identity yet respect the privacy of whoever is named on a debt account. Most opt to say as little as possible in a canned call, while trying to remove themselves from liability with these absurd commands to "stop listening now".

Their job is to clean your bank account and not avoid a conversation, so naturally any inherent illogic to this pussyfooting approach won't stop their repeated tries. There are ways to put them on notice that you'd like your peace restored. How to begin?

PO'ed, I'm sure the feeling is mutual: ERC doesn't believe you, either. The last thing I want to say is "I told you so". Until you send real paper by CMRR, collectors may forever make an excuse to keep calling. You won't have much of a case so long as they can say, "What verbal demand? What email? What message via our handy contact web page?" How much is non-aggravated silence worth to you? The $5.54 fee should look like a better bargain now, moreso as an investment toward a potential $1k kickback.

You are not the client of a debt collector. They are not your Customer Service reps. You can either be an income source or an expense to them and no more. They have no motivation to do as you ask until it is loud and clear that you could be costly to anger. This does not mean you should stoop to threats; that's their sick job. It does mean asserting your rights in the smartest way.

I doubt you will get someone else's dunning letter, but such a goof could make this a really fun case. Slightly off topic .... Consider an email alias service for those entities you consider savage territory. Sneakemail is my favorite by far. I've enjoyed a nearly spam-free life for years with no traps set at my ISP mail server, simply by assigning a unique alias to each recipient. When trashy mail does appear, its source is immediately fingered and may be corrected as I choose.

WELL. I went to their website about a week ago and sent them the STOP CALLING US email through their "Contact Us" link because I wasn't interested in having them flood MY email for this Elizabeth they are looking for and the calls DID NOT STOP.. We received 4 calls since and all where the automated dialer and pre-recorded message. Then they called again about 3 pm today. 4/6. On a fluke I answered the call after only two rings. I said Hello three times and was about to hang up with a man's voice came on asking if Elizabeth was here. I responded that I had gone to their website and sent them the STOP CALLING US! YOU HAVE THE WRONG PHONE NUMBER! SEND HER A COLLECTION LETTER BY MAIL! message. He verified that I had gone to their site and found the email. Appologized and said he was taking our number out of their system right now so we will not receive any more calls. Now I am going to hold my breath! NOT! The real fun will be if the collection letter they are now going to send this lady ends up showing up at OUR address! That means they have LAZY skip tracers that put contact information down based on a last name only without verification that their subject actually lives at the address in question. I don't believe ANY debt collector's word! I have caught too many of them in out right lies. I will post updates over this!

March 17th, 2011 Resident47 RI

You can recall my advice from a month ago was to use USPS Certified with the mint green card, same as the FTC and consumer watchdogs will tell you. You need to be able to prove their receipt of your demand. This is where a lot of people fail by trusting a phoned or online contact will suffice. It’s supposed to, but scofflaw collectors don’t take it seriously until it comes in a scary Cert mail wrapper. I would send the paper cease-comm ASAP, reminding them that on whatever date you issued your demand online. That should establish the almighty paper trail. Keep copies of everything you’ve sent and any phone messages received.

The requirement of a written dunning notice you’re thinking of really pertains only to the alleged debtor sought by a collector. What you’re getting is skip tracing, meaning the pests may not be sure where to send that notice. ERC knows the “letter violation” hurt you could unleash if you were dunned by accident.

That said, ERC now owes you for the trouble. Technically a "consumer" may enforce a cease-comm under statute. It does not say you need to be the "debtor". See if NM state collection laws have anything similar to or stronger than federal you can pile on additionally.

March 16th, 2011 Poed NM

Well.. Sent them a cease contact email through their website over a week and a half ago but it has not stopped them. They have called us twice since the stop calling us letter. The only thing that did change is they are now leaving a message WITHOUT the name of the person they are trying to reach as if they are trying to get us
to actually call them back when the cease all calls message we sent told them that our number was NOT the one for their debtor and that they need to comply with the FDCPA by sending their debtor a written notice assuming
that they have a mailing address for this woman they have been asking for. Our next step is going to be our attorney as well as the complaint we are in the process of filing against them through the New Mexico State Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division. It is about time that the FDCPA started protecting NON-Debtors from such unscrupulas collection practices when debt collectors disreguard not only the law but the rights of the innocent and unrelated victims of their calls. Again. Remember. We have never received any written notice from them in our mail so it is blatantly clear they have the wrong number. On top of the fact that the FDCPA does state that contact must be made in writing. But that seems to be forgotten by most these days.

Resident47. You are correct...sort of. But Mr. Mann is also right. The real "shot clock" as you put it Resident47, is a bit of a misnomer (in the way you have chosen to apply it). The "three to fifteen" year SOL that you asserted varies by state? This is not correct bc you write this as if that SOL refers to the one on the original debt itself rather than the ability of an interested party to file a claim and receive a judgment against a debtor with an original debt that is well-past the original SOL. These are two very different things and are regulated under different codes, acts and laws both at the federal and state levels.

Mr. Mann, depending on the state you live in, the original SOL as applied to your debt does indeed vary from three years to typically no more than seven. There may be some states with a longer SOL than seven; I just don't happen to know any off the top of my head. Here in WA state, it's seven. But...the company or collections agency, law firm etc. that chooses to buy your original debt can operate beyond that original SOL. Here's how: They can, after proper notification blah blah blah (you know the various federal verbiage that applies) take you to court and sue you for the debt + some additional monies. THAT is the SOL Resident47 is referring to, not the original one on your original debt. And, Resident 47 is right in that this expiration date is YEARS longer. In some states, it's 20 years from the date the original debt was incurred.

As for debt collectors using certified mail? They don't. Again Resident47 is correct. But I tip my hand to you Mr. Mann. In the end, you're dead-on. ERC at least is a bunch of bottom-feeders.

PO'ed: Forget the DNC registry. The DNC registry is for telemarketers, meaning sales, meaning all debt collectors are exempt. Attorneys general and the FTC are valid complaint venues.

ERC has been active this week by the rise in complaints. The Jacksonville address should be smack on its website.
www.erccollections.com

A cease-comm from you carries the same weight as one from a legal rep, though an attorney letterhead can't hurt. Go Certified with return card, a cheap investment if ERC is foolish enough to ignore your demand.

The reasons for skip tracing are diverse. You may get the mystery calls if you are a peer or neighbor or relative of the intended target, OR if your data is goofed up with someone else's account, OR your name is on an account you've paid or is too aged to reasonably pursue. The bad collectors don't need much for an excuse, and they don't much care whose name is on the settlement checks they want.

February 10th, 2011 Poed NM

Well.. Resident47. I am of a mind to think that you may be right. I actually was home when they called this morning.. I answered the phone after my answering machine picked up and the pre-recorded message was already playing. I, for lack of better thought, yelled into the received "YOU HAVE THE WRONG PHONE NUMBER" and then hung up on the call. So. Let's see if that reached any deaf ears?? LOL.. I am going to start filing complaints against them through the do not call registry while I try to find out where the office that is calling is actually located so I can send them, or better yet have my attorney send them, a STOP CALLING letter. Think that might give them a clue that they need to be sure they have the right contact information? Or better yet. Make them think sending a letter to the debtor they are looking for before wasting so much time calling?? Just a few penny thoughts if you know what I mean...

(800) 565-0824

February 10th, 2011 Resident47 RI

No insult was intended, P/O. I concur that collectors with bad reputations tend to shed phone numbers like snakeskin, and often maintain several outposts to make litigation easier for them. I usually shy from finding and putting up contact data because it can be easily outdated a few months later and I don't want to mislead anyone.

If you're not getting a positive ID from the callers, find other ERC entries on this site and plug the numbers into other mystery caller sites like 800Notes and WhoCallsMe. Complaints Board and Ripoff Report also tend to have useful intel. The Hibbs sites Collectors Exposed and Consumer Justice are also decent resources, though their site designs are relentlessly ugly.

Keep digging until you have a workable pattern. If the answer is still ERC, I will have to point you again to my January comment, which has the link to ERC's contact page. It makes no secret of the HQ mailing address.

Company name disclosure and privacy for alleged debtors are conflicting mandates within the FDCPA. Agencies find they get sued about equally no matter which one is favored. Most have leaned toward secrecy, I suppose in part because of what you've already described, that it's harder to punish that which is hidden.

I don't blame anyone for vexation and venting, but at a certain point everyone being hounded has to remove emotion from the issue. Frayed nerves and cloudy thinking are exactly what these goons want, to keep you from defending your rights. So relax and show them you're smarter than they thought.

February 10th, 2011 Pissedoff NM

Resident47. While your input is somewhat helpful it is not helpful of you to redicule someone for asking for help or someone airing their dissatisfaction with a situation. The fact of the matter is. Not knowing exactly WHO this caller is, Where they are located, and their actual mailing address it makes it extremely difficult for ANYONE to send them any form or written cease and desist call order. Having researched the company named repeatedly above it turns out they have several locations in several states so picking the right one is made more difficult since they are using an unidentified toll free number to make these calls. There is also the matter that when they are calling the wrong person/phone number using deceptive practices as they are even answering the phone only to be met with an automated pre recorded message is a significant road block preventing proper identification of the caller which is in fact required under the FDCPA. Instead of rediculing those reaching out for help how about offering the help since you seem to be so knowledgeable about how to find these A**Holes by telling us just who they are and what their actual physical mailing address really is so that we CAN send them a stop calling us letter?? Is that too much to ask? Remember to consider that most folks that show up posting complaints on this site are doing so out of frustration and the need for real help when the help out there doesn't seem to really work. Thanks again. PO.

have some kind of mystical powers to get people to pay ?? Oh, sue me.

P/O, canned skip trace calls like those you've heard are depressingly common from the debt industry. Debt collectors must answer to privacy regs, hence their obfuscation in messages and demands for identifying data in live calls. Of course, being shadowy works in their favor to make call targets anxious. In your place I would be documenting those calls. You might need the evidence.

The "real way" to silence them is to send a cease-comm via USPS Certified with card. The FTC and many consumer watchdogs explain how to draft one. If you'd taken my advice in the prior message you would already know this.

February 3rd, 2011 Pissedoff NM

This caller keeps calling with an automated dailer and leaves a pre-recorded/automated message saying that "This call is for, some woman with a similar last name, if you are not this person please delete this message. I keep deleting the message but of course this does not fix the problem of stopping them from wasting MY time calling my number looking for this other woman. All I can think to do is to file a complaint against them for using methods of calling that do not allow the person being called to speak to someone REAL to get them to stop. Then there is the matter of using an unidentified phone number to call from hiding the identity of their company, who ever they are. Wish there was a REAL way to stop these kinds of irresponsible calling practices effectively..

Linda, hi ... I think we've crossed paths here before. Yes, I'm with you in seeing how absurdly counterproductive the skip tracing sometimes gets. The way debt collectors daisy chain themselves to incorrect persons is indeed a widespread symptom of a burdensome overall system. If Federal law forced debt to die with the failure to fully and clearly validate it, we would all have quieter phones.

I was not advocating your direct involvement, only pointing out to the folks at home the potential for abuse. It's not even like you would have to actively profile this person. As you've suggested, over time each collector provides another data block for the pile. I imagine your reverse intel gathering on the collectors will one day be of use to pestered consumers at large.

January 29th, 2011 Linda MI

Since it's not my debt, I really consider it to be not my problem.

Since I have a very common name and am listed in the phone book with my initials and no address, getting rid of the "Camille" calls wouldn't make all of the calls go away. Besides, once I explain the situation, the caller usually takes me off their list. Then the debt is sold to another collections company and the process starts all over again.

I don't intend to meet (or even contact) Camille. I just thought it was amusing that it was so easy to find her.

Enhanced Recovery, in an answering machine message left a year ago (3/18) gave me the key piece of information that makes me certain that she's the right one.

For the time being, I'm using the information I gather to build profiles of the various collection agencies.

If someone decides to harrass me, then I may choose to go after them.

January 29th, 2011 Resident47 RI

You're building an alarming profile of the alleged debtor along with a who's who of crappy collectors there, Linda. Doesn't say much for this woman's attention to online security. At least your purpose was benign. Collectors do in fact have access to all sorts of databases to drill for contact data, some being out of reach of lowly consumers. They will nonetheless always start with whatever is found with an account and/or credit bureau report.

Strictly from an investigative method viewpoint, I would do the same. Moreover, these high volume collectors are chasing commissions, mandated to bring in the most revenue for the least work. If you thought you could tag the alleged debtor in a single phone call rather than an hour of research, you too would take that chance. Not that every agency much cares whose names are on the settlement checks they want.

Maybe the mystery woman is using decoy phone numbers, or maybe your contact data is messed up with hers without intention. As old debts get traded and sold, data is often corrupted. You can go knock on her door and maybe name all her old boyfriends, but you still don't know her story. If you ever did decide to meet, it's possible you hold useful evidence of her privacy being violated by one or more agencies.

The best and usually only way to end the calls is with a cease-comm letter via USPS Certified with card. The FTC and many consumer watchdogs explain how to draft one. Learn more at FTC-dot-gov.

This is the sixth company to call me in the past year looking for Camille (apparently Camille gave out my telephone number as her contact number).

I don't know Camille, but with the information the various collection agencies have provided, I was able to find her online in less than 10 minutes.

I know:

--Her name
--Her age
--Where she lives
--Her phone number
--Who she is in debt to
--What she does for a living
--Who she works for
--Her job title

I know how many aliases she has and how they are spelled.

I know who has tried to collect from her, and how, because I have made a record of every single call.

I can call up a street view of her house on Google maps (and it’s close enough that I could drive to it if I wanted to).

And, I am 100% certain that the person I have found is the person they are looking for.

NOW, YOU'D THINK IF IT WAS THAT EASY FOR ME TO FIND CAMILLE, THE COLLECTORS COULD DO IT, TOO.

I didn't give her to them, though.

Instead, I explained that I don't know Camille, and they apologized and took me off their list.

Here's the tally so far:

Redline Recovery (2/15/10)
Enhanced Recovery Corporation 3/18/10
Chase USA (4/3/10)
Unknown (4/14/10)
Creditor’s Financial Group (10/19/10)
ARS National Services (12/30/10)
Enhanced Recovery Corporation (1/20/11)

It's just a matter of time before another company adds themself to the list.

I wonder who it will be.

Mr. Mann, I won't argue with your general description of the junk debt game, but your advice is flawed. I had already corrected the same point you try to assert here regarding the FCRA ten days ago, under the number 8777190743 for VanRu. Again, the seven year FCRA time limit for reporting of accounts to the credit bureaus has NO bearing on whether those accounts may be collected or sued for. Each state has its own Statute of Limitations for different debt categories, which is the real "shot clock" for lawsuits. That period ranges anywhere from three to fifteen years.

Also, it is I think extremely rare for debt collectors to send anything Certified. They process accounts by the thousand, so rely on the "mailbox rule" for proof of delivery. If the piece doesn't bounce back, it's assumed as received. Alleged debtors in response of course cannot rely on the same, and must send everything USPS CMRR to best preserve their rights. A collector which thinks it has a valid claim must send a dunning letter within five days of first contact.

Just so search engine pluggers won't get lost, the law you tried to cite is called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA. Start at FTC-dot-gov to read more.

January 24th, 2011 matt mann

caller is 'enhanced recovery corporation' a scum sucking bottom feeding collection agent.. If you know what's on your credit report, and you know the Fair Credit Collecions Act. then they have nothing on you. Their game goes like this.. Aside from collecion of legitimate debt, they also buy outdated debt that has aged off your file, (normally older than 7 yrs) At that point, the debt is legally out of date, and is UNCOLLECTABLE. Then along comes a company like ERC, and they buy the debt from the original creditor, and then they start hounding you with calls, playing games trying to establish contact with whomever is named on the debt. If they can find you, then they resubmit the old outdated debt back to the credit bureaus, and the 7 year collections clock starts all over again at zero.. BANG! you just shot yourself in the foot, you can pay them, but that just makes money for them. Any money you pay, goes to ERC, not the original creditor, b/c the creditor has sold that debt to ERC, and written you off, a long time ago..

IF THEY CALL, IGNORE IT, AND HANG UP THE PHONE. IF THEY WERE SERIOUS AND HAD ANYTHING TO HANG OVER YOU, THEY WOULD BE SENDING YOU A LETTER CERTIFIED MAIL, NOT CALLING YOU.

ERC is indeed a debt collector, and one of ill repute. You don't need a valid debt or a derogatory trade line on your credit reports to be hassled by collectors. ERC may well be skip tracing some other poor sap.

To my best knowledge, collection industry lobby ACA International coaxed an exemption from the TCPA in early 2008. Bot calls are just fine, absent a notice from you removing consent to call. Special attention is given to mobile phones, as the FTC forbids collection calls which knowingly incur cost.

Before taking action, get to know the FDCPA, which regulates industry behavior. Learn your rights and response tactics at FTC-dot-gov. Written demands are recommended, as verbal requests to collectors are generally ignored.

Enhanced Recovery Corporation is based in Jacksonville. They may alternately use "Company" or "Collections".

This is the second call I have received from this number. Both times an automated pre-recorded message started playing before my outgoing answering machine message beeped so I have NO idea who they are or who they are trying to reach. Going by previous posts here it appears to be some kind of collection or recovery service and since I have no "bill" outstanding that could be going to collections I have no idea why they are calling ME. IF they are even calling ME.. Does ANYONE know what their mailing address is? I have never received anything in writing from this company so I have no way to reach them and I WILL NOT call them back to get added to anyone's calling list. And.. Isn't it illegal for collection agencies to use pre-recorded messages to contact people???

Gotta love how the complaint forum thread "PO'ed" found is almost half full of defensive but mostly unspecific posts from supposed employees, which I take as a sign ERC is on its way to dissolving. If a fraudulent business model can be threatened by bad press, imagine what a few hundred extra consumer lawsuits would do.

In that same thread are stories from people whose lives were turned miserable even though they were falsely accused of debt. That problem is echoed throughout the debt industry. I would think twice before reflexively hitting "delete" on that phone recorder. You could be erasing evidence worth a nice settlement check.

The message started before my answering machine beeped so I have no idea who they are trying to reach and gave some kind of referance number requiring whoever they are trying to reach to call them at a 565 number... Well.. Since I have no outstanding debts they can kiss my hairy derier.... I do not return calls from people I do not know especially calls that clearly have nothing to do with me.

Mar, your comment needs rebuttal on two points. First, debt collectors are not selling anything, therefore are exempt from the DNC registry. There are a few cases where TCPA trips them up, but don't look there first for a payday.

Studying the laws is always good advice but sending people to Kevin Trudeau is not! That modern snake-oiler is the first and only person in history to be banned for life from selling any product on television. Stupidly, the ruling allowed book sales as a loophole, and faster than you can say "Natural Mega Memory Cures", the clown was back on the air hawking dubious advice books. I would wager there is not one "hidden wisdom" line in "Debt Cures" not already available freely through countless consumer defender sources.

Speaking of valid sources, if you are receiving repeated, misdirected, and/or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the FDCPA, the Federal law which regulates collector behavior. Learn your rights at FTC-dot-gov. See also your state laws for additional support.

Possibly if your mobile phone account is that obscure and in a special category, ERC already knew it was a mobile device prior to calling. That's key, since the FDCPA bans collection calls to those gadgets or in any manner which creates cost to the alleged debtor. Tell them straight out in writing your mobile phone is off limits. Document all calls for a potential suit.

Frank, I would concur that if need be you should always lowball a junk debt buyer, which typically purchases account bundles at 03 to 15% of the face value. But the first response is never "How do I pay", but "Prove I owe" ... something these agencies are rather slack about. If you'd rather pay 20% instead of zero percent, do it your way. Otherwise, use the laws to your advantage.

You're right, Lenny, it's hard to send them Nastygrams without a positive ID. A few comments on 800 Notes think this is Enhanced Recovery Corporation in Jacksonville, Florida. Alias Enhanced Recovery Collections, alias "ERC", a known lawbreaker by any name. They appear to hold a few other numbers in the 565 exchange. I'm not saying we have a match, but it's a good place to start. Took me maybe ten minutes to pass square one, one of the benefits of the networked computer era.

Predictive dialers are cheaper than humans and don't quit the job when they become disillusioned with poor debt industry practices. You may find modest success fooling the callers, but this can start you on a telephonic arms race with opponents who think aggressive skip tracing is a sacred right.

Thank you for your input Resident47. And you are right about the two way meanings and ways this crap can go. As for this caller. They called again today, 12/15, at 6:20pm. Second call from these people! Same pre-recorded automaton type message and it started before our answering machine beeped. At this rate they will never reach whoever they are trying to reach. As for your last mention about the cease comm message.. Hard to send mail to someone you don't know or have any mailing address for. Too bad they are so damn lazy they can't pickup a phone and make a "bonified attempt to contact" live so they could HEAR the message on the machine they are reaching. I guess it's time to get one of those automated tone devices that will beep at their dialer telling it the number it is calling has been disconnected so it will drop that number from it's dialing list?

November 16th, 2010 Resident47 RI

Confused and Lenny: At least you know there IS a FDCPA, so I'll spare that pitch. The issue of "meaningful disclosure" has been at odds with privacy provisions in the same Act. Collectors often don't like to give a business name or useful CID as they ostensibly should in canned messages, and I see two theories for the practice. One, the mere hint of collection activity is feared to violate debtor privacy, and indeed agencies are sued about equally if they do or don't make simple disclosure. Two, I think the obfuscation helps them create urgency and anxiety. They know their targets are more likely to call back if the call purpose is hidden.

This has led the clumsy practice of trying to get a person to self-authenticate in a canned message. Hence those absurd commands to "stop listening if you're not the droid we're after". Also common is the use of vague phrasing like "important business matter" and variants thereof. Phone systems set for mass dialing are often one-way channels, so the caller actually must give different return numbers. Being deceptive and being unlawful is not always the same thing, so what alleged debtors can see as actionable is often case-dependent.

I'm sure you two know this, but I'll share with the crowd that a written cease-comm is recommended for misfired collection calls, as described by the FTC and many consumer watchdogs.

November 16th, 2010 Confused NM

OH! And between using an unidentified toll free number and giving a different call back number than the one they are calling from should constitute using deceptive practices if it really is a collection agency because they are attempting to hide their identities. Doesn't the FDCPA require collection agencies to properly identify themselves now?

November 16th, 2010 Confused NM

We have no idea who the caller is, who they are trying to reach, or why they are calling because they are using an automated dialer and a pre-recorded message which starts before our answering machine beeps for the caller to leave their message. We do not have any late bills much less bills that have been turned over to collections so there is no justification for this caller to be calling us if they are a collection agency. We do not return unidentified toll free calls because too many solicitors are using unidentified toll free numbers to make their calls to avoid complaince with the DO NOT CALL laws.

By law "AM" did not have to resubmit a cease-comm for every bloody phone number the collector might use or spoof. The only mistake was trying to do so by voice, which never sticks. It must be done on paper with proof of delivery to put the collector firmly on notice.

Who ever this caller is or claims to be is still unknown for sure. The call we received was an automated call with a pre-recorded message that started before our answering machine beeped so we have no idea who they are, who they are trying to reach, or why they are calling. All we got was a request for someone to call a toll free number back about a business matter. Apparently by most mentions here it is a collection agency. Since we have no debts outstanding or pending collections it appears this caller has a wrong number. This was the first call. I guess I will file a complaint against the number with the state attorney general's office so they can investigate since not only are they acting in bad faith but they are also using practices that violate the FDCPA.

I am again the first in a four year old collector thread to recommend that you learn how to exercise your rights as an alleged debtor at FTC-dot gov. I see several examples here of illegal behavior from Enhanced Recovery, for which no one needs to sit still. Don't listen to industry apologists of the "Pay Yuz Bills" trolls. ERC is quite purposely annoying and lawbreaking, no different from its rogue peers. Debt collectors don't all care if the correct person pays or if the debt account is legitimate. Since you do care, on a live call question everything, reveal nothing, and make no verbal agreements.

If you are receiving misdirected or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the FDCPA, which regulates collector behavior and provides a private right of action. It grants you control of how you are contacted, and collectors can be sued for their crimes. Some of you have found that your verbal demands to limit or cease communication, as allowed by the law, are ignored. You will have to place the discussion on a paper trail to enforce regulatory compliance.

Meanwhile, the DNC registry is for telemarketers, meaning sales. Charities, debt collectors, political speech, and surveyors are all exempt as they are not included in the FTC definition of "telemarketing". This was made known to you when you registered your numbers.

I do not appreciate them continuing to call my pay-as-you-go cell number and costing me money when it has been explained to them that this is a new cell phone for me and that the person they are trying to contact is NOT at that number. VERY poor business practices. When I called them to tell them to AGAIN remove my number, the woman was extremely rude and hung up on me.

I received a collection letter from this company, erc. I called the 800 number and talked to a nice guy who told me that this was for a past due debt with Sprint from 2004. I told him that I couldn't remember having Sprint. He told me that it was for Nextell, then I knew he was lying. He told me in order to settle the account he would need my monthly income and banking information!? What? I don't think so. I urge everyone to be ware of these people. No one collects this way. Never give them your personal information. They're not getting my money either!

Usually indicate they are calling for an individual that I have never heard of and that I should delete the message if it is not for me (which I have done). Sometimes however the caller reads a stream of one digit numbers that have no meaning to me. Used to get the calls very frequently (up to 3 per day) but they have dropped in frequency to less than one a week.

Since we've had our number after moving to WA a year ago, we have regularly gotten calls from this company for Dolores B. and Olivia D. I have a letter of complaint ready to go if they call again. We'll see if it works.

Recorded call looking for a named person. The named person doesn't live here, never has. If you try to call back to let them know they have a wrong number, there's no live person to talk with. Also received a call from them for a different person -- didn't know that name, either. They keep calling. I don't answer anymore.

We have had a number of people calling us to say we were calling them but this is not us and it appears to belong to ERC.

Wow, Chas ... Four years of skip tracing you in error is 3.86 years too long. Most of this thread is about misdirected collection calls, not covered by DNC. As I've said elsewhere, a written "cease-comm" notice should quiet a debt collector. Sambo, how do you know that Robbie has a legitimate debt to chase? These debt buyers often don't admit they have boundaries. But they do, outlined in the FDCPA.

These poeple have been calling my home phone number 2 or 3 times a week for the last 4 years looking for someone that I do not know.

Calls at least 1-2 times per day on my VIRGIN MOBILE - pay as you go phone. If I answer, I get charged. No message left, just continuous phone calls. Very annoying. Just filed complaint with DO NOT CALL REGISTER since I'm on it.

Keep calling my number looking for 'Erin' or 'Aaron' though I've told them 5 or 6 times to take my number off of their list. Registered a complaint with the no call database.

On Sept 1, 2010 at 8:52pm this 555-555-5555 number called me right after i got off the phone with my mother. After that, it called my nephew and said the same thing to him. It sounded like a deep voice that we had trouble understanding. If this is just a test, then why did it call my family within minutes of talking to my mother. We didnt even call my nephew. Wierd! Creepie!, and Alarming!
