This number calls us 7-8 times a day. We picked it up finally at 815pm tonight and it was a very rude guy that was looking for my husband regarding his student loan. I'm authorized to speak on his behalf on the account, and always have been. I've always been the one that calls on his loan and takes care of his acct, and this man absolutely refused to speak to me! He interrupted me, cut me off and told me to get off the phone. I tracked down my husband and he proceeded to speak over my husband, telling him he's in default (which he isn't) and when my husband tried to stop him and tell him this, he yelled and hung up un us. Very rude, unprofessional, not accurate, and harassing!

We got calls from these people two days in a row with no message either time. Couldn't they at least come up with a half way believable spoofed number?

Well when I answered the phone someone with a very bad grasp of the english language was talking and I said if you need to speak to me you have to speak english, their reply was THIS IS ENGLISH, and I said not very good english then the rant began I F****d your Mother, I am your Mother F****r I then said why would anyone call anyone and say that? He said I would I am your father your Mother F****r that is when I said I don't think so my father speaks PERFECT english then I hung up

In regard to; The one that stated, "YOU ALL ARE RETARDED NOT ALL 1-111-111-1111 Calls are spam, legit business", is in error as much as the one(s) using the phony number. Regardless of who is reporting the 1-111-111-1111, the wise thing to do is 'hang up', and immediately report the call.
I answered and an animated voice started talking about Senior Citizens. I promptly hung up the phone and there have been no further calls from this number. Three weeks past. :-) The best to all of you, we don't need this invasion of our privacy.

January 12th, 2013 J NY

YOU ALL ARE RETARDED NOT ALL 1-111-111-1111 Calls are spam, legit business use them for collection purposes as well. dont be afraid answer find out what they want whats the worste that can happen? you hang up, tada... i know b.c my company uses this number, and if u ask for a legit number to call back well give it to you, we dont call from a regular number b.c the debtor becoems familirized with the number and stops answering

December 13th, 2012 Rick KY

Yep, this is a call from UPS Marketing to do a followup survey after you recently signed up for a shipper account. It's not a DNC violation, so cut them some slack.

This is a legitimate business trying to reach out to its newly-signed-up customers. Don't lump them into the same boat with Rachel or that asshole calling about FBI statistics and wanting to sell you a security system. If you answer the phone and (politely!) tell them you'd rather not do the survey and don't want any more calls, they should comply.

I went ahead and answered their call today - I usually don't pick up on numbers I don't recognize - and talked to the woman at the other end.

I told her about the amount of frustration I've been reading on the various sites that come up when you google the number. She said they've been hearing about about the negative comments and have been passing that feedback upstream to... well, you know... wherever that goes.

The lady was very pleasant, and after taking my comments she proceeded to ask me a few questions about how much I planned to ship and whether I also used competitors. She finished by asking if a sales person could contact me, and I (politely) said no thanks, since I'm just using this for personal shipping. The survey took about two minutes.

If you're getting dead air and/or they're not leaving a message, that's likely a side-effect of the way the outbound systems work. It's not a person sitting there dialing your number, hearing you or your answering machine pick up and then just ignoring you or hanging up. My guess is that if it's an answering machine the system hangs up and tries again later so they can talk to a real person, and if you pick up and get dead air it's because the system doesn't have a call agent available to talk to you. Yeah, I know it's a pain, but that's the way phone centers work these days.

When you call UPS and ask them about the calls and they don't appear to know what's going on, it's because they're a big, BIG company and the people you're talking to don't know what another part of the business is doing. Happens all the time.

I am not 100% sure, but this sounds like some kind of identity theft. I did co-sign a loan with AES but they cold called me out of the blue. The person caller mumbled quite a bit and I had a hard time understanding him. I asked him twice exactly why he was calling without a reasonable explanation. He continued to ask for personal information (date of birth, SS # was probably next). After I asked him a 3rd time he hung up.

KR, debt collectors want your money, not your excuses. Having ''explained the situation'' does not release you from the terms of a lender contract.

You may want to make certain it's TFS calling and not a third party collector in disguise. You can invoke FDCPA protection to raise a debt dispute and silence the calls if the latter is true. (The sloppy skip tracing reported in older posts here creates that suspicion.) Otherwise you'll need to live in one of the few states which aims a similar law at original creditors.

they have a legit reason to call me. i've fallen under hard times. but i've spoken to them and explained the situation. there's nothing more i can do. and yet they call. three times a day. starting before 9am as late as 9pm and even on Sunday. they call from four different numbers. i want to cry.

I get plenty of "spam" phone calls, but have never seen this number. twice already today they have called. i "answered" it, aka, let the phone pick up, and listened... it was breaking up and i couldn't entirely hear. this is super annoying... this site is super helpful though, i've used it before and made me feel not so alone with all of these fake phone calls

Like others, I suspect this is from UPS. I just created an account to ship something by UPS. This happened to me before. I landed up deleting my UPS account and the phone calls stopped. Going to delete my UPS online account again

August 16th, 2012 Scott GA

Like many others, I just signed up for a UPS account - but i didn't answer phone, so I cannot say who actually claimed to be calling.

April 27th, 2012 Amanda

I have received two calls from this number this week. I am not sending or expecting any packages and have not received a "we missed you" notification either. The caller did not leave a message either time. I called UPS and they said if it was UPS, they would have left me a message, which they didn't.

I am another recipient of these calls that recently opened a UPS account. Luckily I had the foresight when I opened the account to give them my Google Voice number, so that if I ended up on any sort of marketing/spam list I could easily block as many incoming numbers as I needed to. This number has been accordingly marked as spam and goes directly to voicemail now without me ever having to even hear my phone ring.

September 12th, 2011 who cares TN

Its UPS. Got a call again, they never leave voice mail, After about 1 minute of holding someone started to ask about the UPS account I just opened. Waste of time. UPS please do not waste my time.

September 9th, 2011 RM IN

I just blacklisted the number, which blocks it and gives them a message that mu number is disconnected. The name on the number shows up as UPS Marketing. I too recently opened a UPS account online.

This number calls my cell numerous times per day, but does not responed when I answer. Please tell me what it is and how do I stop it.

June 9th, 2011 Zadam FL

Same as the comments below. Guy was skilled like a telemarketer, kept talking to keep conversation going. Knew my address, but not my apartment number, and played real like a real representative, ie, asking if I want to be included in e-mail promotions... another big mistake he made, as I had already set up an account on UPS' website already having answered those questions with a click. I also told him that UPS has already sent me a bill and thus ALREADY HAS my apartment number and that I don't believe that he's from UPS, said thank you, and hung up on him... while he was still speed talking telemarketer style.

I called the number back and got the same as everyone below, can't dial in per pre-recorded message.

Surprised I've not seen any ACTION on this since 2006 of the first report, below.

April 18th, 2011 aes rep PA

AES and PHEAA are government agencies. For that reason, even if you are on the do not call list, we are still authorized to make a call to you (or the references you leave) to make contact with you to help prevent this debt from going onto your credit report or going into default. Like every other "bill collector", there are some good some bad. If you get a call from a rude rep, call their supervisors and let them know and it will be handled appropriately.

April 18th, 2011 rep PA

the number is 18002330557. i'm a rep for AES. We try to contact so many times due to due diligence. If you answer your phone and we make contact with you, we won't call you as often. What we try to due is help people as well as collect. If you can not make a payment, we explore other options. We wouldn't call so much if the phone was answered. Usually, if you do not have a loan with us and we call you, you were either a co-signer or an alternate contact for someone who has a loan out. We are legitamate. Most loan programs offer options to help if you can not make a payment. If we call and you can not make a payment, just let us know and we will see if we can help you so that it doesnt get credit reported or go into default. :)

April 14th, 2011 Resident47 RI

that quote ...
''Put the bank behind the loan serviced by AES on notice of AES's egregious conduct. The bank should be a defendant in the coming action(s) for their knowledge of their agent's (AES) mismanagement of the accounts and their failure to take any corrective action.''
www.complaintsboard.com

April 14th, 2011 Resident47 RI

Whoops, try again ....

If AES is such an innocently bystanding ''loan servicer'', why are there so many recent complaints of behavior like that of a hostile junk debt collector? I'm seeing wrongful interest and fee gouging, rude treatment from the reps, and general jerking around of the alleged debtors. Anyone living in a state with decent collections or deceptive practice laws should rethink their responses to these goons.

Here's a quote I found from a Connecticut attorney which may illuminate:

With all these people below reporting as UPS calling and having set up a new account....would suspect an insider at UPS with access to new account names and numbers is selling to scammers for them to try to pry more information which can be used to utilize credit card or other information to make money in some way????

It was UPS calling to ask follow up questions after opening an account. The number is probably tied to a call center, supplying "agents" for multiple companies, where the 800 number on the caller ID is a trunk number and not specifically tied to a business name.

This means, that this number may show up for any number of businesses served by this particular call center.

February 3rd, 2011 wil CO

this is NOT UPS. I alerted UPS to this and their response follows:

"Thank you for forwarding this information to us. The phone call you received is not a legitimate UPS communication. We are aware that individuals may inappropriately use the UPS name or its services to perpetuate fraudulent activities. Please be aware the actual phone number can be masked or spoofed on caller ID and appear to be a legitimate UPS phone number when it is not.

Hmm, reported here I also see the names of different debt collectors and political callers, quite a variety of opinions on caller identity.

call claimed to be from UPS, calling regarding new accounts, and how the service was going. they knew the address, didn't give them a chance to go any further. if it is UPS its a lousy way of doing business. i think i'll cancel the damn account.

They were trying to tell me I made an inquiry about a loan from this particular email address and I was expected to pay it back or my checking account will be wiped out. I told them I was on the National Do Not Call list and they had the audacity to call again within a matter of seconds. I told them that I was reporting them to the PA Attorney General's office for violating my request. They hung up and thankful have not called back again.

I just want to add, I had a build issue my Dell computer That I ordered was not built with the parts That I was being billed for (getting charged for stuff not in computer). I was being overcharged and called many times. just so much hassle dealing with Dell. I decided to stop payment and never paid them another dime! The problem for me is still there it has been several years and quite, but you and I know it is posted out there. I dont hate dell computers just the shady practice of dealing with dell face to face. I had a great experiance buying a Dell from walmart they have great customer service and they are a good buffer to have between you and Dell, walmart will help you with all your questions and if you have a return they will be there for you. You do only have a 15 day return but you have a year warrenty that walmart enforces that way you never have to bother calling Dell yourself! If you like Dell try walmart or go online to walmart. BUT DONT GET TANGLED UP IN DELLS CREDIT OR THE CUSTOMER SERVICE YOU WILL END UP GETTING OVERCHARGED!

Its UPS. they will only call you if you actually request a UPS account number (6 digit), NOT a userid.

They will call you 3-4 times a day, usually 10:30,12:30,1:30,2:30 and 3:30. I had the misfortune of signing up 2 times with 2 numbers (google voice number).. annoying.

Calling the number back, says the number is disconnected. This I think should be a violation of FCC rules, seriously. Calling people from a number, that they cannot call back. Ignorant.

Though they have called a gazillion times, i have actually yet to hear a voice :(

A man called my parents and would not tell them why, just left a number for me to call. When I called the number I was hung up on twice without even speaking to a real person. When I actually got a real person, ROY, he was extremely rude, wanted my SS number and pretty much told me if I did not settle a 5 yr old debt with Verizon that he would ruin my credit. I do not have a debt with Verizon. DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE AND PLEASE DO NOT EVER GIVE OUT YOUR SS#.

Hey encore rep!!! why don't you take some time and go back to school and learn how to write,Man your spelling suck's.By the way are YOU in Nigeria to?

Why are you so worried about people venting on this Board?
I think you better look out your own back door.

December 25th, 2009 The Scam Buster WA

The biggest problem with these so-called Collection Agency's Is that most of these people are Outsourced,So when you get a call you can't understand a Dam thing they are saying.It's really sad to see all our jobs sent overseas.Then you get some idiot on the phone who gets upset because He or She Can't speak Decent English. Oh yes I've had a few Bill's But I did pay them.But again there Is nothing worse than speaking with a person you can't understand.

December 22nd, 2009 haveicalledyou MO

I am a debt collector, and i read just about every post on here, and wow im kinda torn i wanna be mad as hell that debtors who owe a legit bill, still place anger in the wrong place. I am not the reason you are behind on your cc. I am not the reason you owe my client thousands of dollars. I do in fact treat every single call with respect, and dignity, cuz who am I, I have bills too, i dont rack up several thousand dollars worth. Bottom line is every 3rd party debt company in the US is bound by the FDCPA, every collections office has to be licensed to collect in your state. There is a saying in collections its only illegal if you get caught. So as a collector who gets paid off bonuses, we do and say pretty much what we have to to get you to pay. Understand that you had a legal contract with our clients, and if you read that contract that you were so eager to sign upfront, it says that if you go into default you balance will be do in full, so now your in default and its our fault right. Because my client extended you credit that "YOU" used racking up several thousand in debt and now dont want to pay. We are not the bad guys here, we get lied to countless times a day, we here ever sob story in the world, the economy, its obamas fault, there is no work here, ive been out of work for a year, who does that. Me as a collector, i am willing to do what ever i can to get you the lowest sett offer, set up on payments, what ever i can do to help you get your account taken care of, my approch is based soley off the intial contact, if you come to me sideways, if you want to cuss me, talk shit to me, then i will do my job, ill call your house work mother brother, sister cousins, friedns, neighbors, whom ever i can find attached to your name. Its not personal to me its business, until you personalize your frustrations onto me, then it becomes personal and at that point i dont care if you ever pay, i just want to make your life hell, because when its all said and done. ITS YOUR DEBT PAY YOUR FUCKING BILLS.

My credit score is high actually and no ive never been late in my life, i have always been early...what are you trying to prove if you have time to get on here to rant and rave how we are "harrassing" you then you surely have the time to go out and work to pay you bills. Its not hard people its really not do get a credit card if you cant handle it (which aparently none of you can), You guys are just making excuses..Encore Rmi is actually owned by a company called convergys whcih owns many differnt encores around the country! WORD OF ADVICE- most of the time if you listen to what we offer we could save you thousands..........just a suggestion

October 8th, 2009 AngryMontreal QC Canada

This number is from Global Credit & Collection (in Montreal, Qc, Canada), they are a collection agency. Although they represent themselves as agents working for whatever institution is owed a debt. In our case it's a debt (of approx. 500$) that dates from more than 6 years ago, which we tried at the time to resolve with the bank in question. We were told that they no longer held that file and it had gone to a collection agency, hence the agent in question misrepresented herself as an agent of the bank. She would not give me the name of the company she worked for as she wanted to speak to my wife, even though I had added my wife to this account which was in my name, after we got married. I told her she was a collection agency and that my wife had already sat through the robocall and told the woman that they were a collection agency and that their time for legal action had lasped and that the damage to her credit score was done. The "agent" said that this was the first time that they had called (this is a BOLDFACED lie), and asked if I knew the repercussions of lying to her in a recorded call, and that I couldn't refuse to let her speak to my wife, which I wasn't, she was at work. So I had my wife call her back at the number she left 514-282-3779, and got an answering machine in which the "agent" gave her name and the company she works for. My wife left a message informing her that when she calls back we would like to know her licence number and the licence number of her company, and that after we had verified who they were, we need to see the original contract that makes up the alleged debt that the collection agent is collecting. So far we haven't heard back...

September 6th, 2009 Encore Rep.

1.) If you people would pay your bills to the actual company you owe you would never be in collection with encore RMI to begin with.
2.) If these calls are actually not for you take the time to press one to get an actual person, to get the number taken out, you are always going to get a recording first that asked if this is "John Doe" please press one.
3.) If you owe the dept take responsibility for the fact that it is your mistake and fix it, take the time to listen to some of our reps. to explain what we have to offer, most of the time its better than what customer service could ever offer you, including settlements, and payment plans You most deffinetly have the time to talk on the phone if you are taking the time to complain on here.
4.) As far as others thinking Encore RMI isnt legit, it is, this isnt false information we have this info on accounts from when you people filled out your application in the beginning.

FROM WHAT I CAN TELL SOME OF YOU PEOPLE WHO DO NOT WANT TO PAY YOUR BILL AND THINK THAT CABLE, CELLS PHONES, NEW CARS AND OTHER THINGS ARE A BIGGER PRIORITY, YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW TO USE A CREDIT CARD!!! THIS IS STEALING FROM THE GE MONEY BANK WHO FINANCES ALL YOUR CARDS, LET ME REMIND YOU AGAIN THIS IS STEALING AND IF YOU CANNOT FIGURE THAT OUT THEN YOU ARE THE MORONS!

Hello everyone, I have just been notified that my information was posted to this website. First I would like to say that this number was disconnected when I moved. I found out from the FCC, that the number was spoofed by people who were trying to run a scam. Second, I would like to say to the blogger Lee, who posted personal information on here about me this was totally disrepectful. If you went to the point to look information up about me you could of contacted me personally and this could have been solved a long time ago. You could have gotten me killed or hurt by an upset person who was receiving these calls. There were 18 or more reports posted on this web about calling and only a few people stated to call the FCC. Instead everyone else just continue to keep the fire going. I'm a mother and an adult who would never play on the phone. I'm very upset because my name has been posted on a lot of links for this foolery. Please next time if someone is calling and getting on your nerves contact the FCC A.S.A.P because nine times out of ten it is a scam and the person name who is coming up on your caller I.D don't even know that their name is being used in this scam.

July 25th, 2009 Tara King IL

First of all who's ever calling you should, have caller id the caller the owner of the number has not lived in that area in over two to three years, lets be adults if its the wrong number don't answer.aND YES WE HAVE NOTIFY THE FCC HAS BEEN CONTACTED AND WILL BE DEALT WITH.

Got two calls from these people today. Both times, it was
a recorded message... though the name varied:

"Hello! This is Amber/Sarah with Card-holder Services..."

Really? "Card-holder Services"? With what bank?
Bear in mind that this greeting is designed to make you
assume they're actually associated with your bank.
But, in reality, they don't even know who you are.

They tell you that you're eligible to have your interest
rates significantly lowered. Sounds good to me except that
they don't even know who I am.

The recording then directs you to press 1 to speak to
a representative. Or press 3 to have them discontinue calling.

May 3rd, 2009 encore agent Philippines

numbers are being called because (1.) there were registered by the cardholders themselves when they applied for the credit card (2.)these cardholders used these number to call the store/customer service/encore itself (3.) they were skiptraced, meaning these were searched from databases....if they are receiving numerous calls a day, that means they are not picking up their phone to answer it....if it's a wrong number, please say so, so we can remove your number from our list...it's a waste of time and money for us to keep calling wrong numbers, doesn't that make any sense? we are not too keen on leaving messages on accounts on late stages of delinquency coz we most probably did that when it was on it's early stage (obviously cardholder haven't returned the call at all)....and we are highly regulated by federal law...most of the complaints here are exaggerations.....the best thing is to be civil about it...if we have the wrong number, please say so, we would remove it, for sure...if you are the delinquent cardholder, do face up to your responsibilities....for all you know, if you take time out to listen, you would appreciate that we are offering you options most convenient for you to save your credit standing.....

This company says they are Wells Fargo. However they call from several different numbers (515-327-3019, 503-403-2686, 503-403-2665, 503-403-2670) so I am unsure if it really is Wells Fargo or this is a scam. The 515 number shows in caller ID as Wells Fargo but the other numbers don't. They are however, the same people calling. I am not and never have been a Wells Fargo customer and have been asking them for months to stop calling me. Unfortunately, this has resulted in an increase in calls. I get called several times per day and it is driving me insane. I have told them they have the wrong number but the calls just keep increasing. I have filed several complaints with the national do not call list but it has made no difference. I then filed a complaint with the Federal Reserve who could not help but they did forward my complaint onto the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) who regulate banks and who deal with these types of complaints. They have accepted my complaint and are investigating it. If you are being harrassed by these people too, I encourage you to file a complaint. The more complaints received, the higher priority this will become. Here is how you contact the OCC:

You have to send a written cease and desist notice to make them stop calling, if you care the person they are trying to contact.

Encore is a collections agency. I work there now, and not really ecited about it to tell the truth. But I can tell you that it is all legitimate. Nothing we do is fraud. the main issue with wrong numbers is that people lie to us all day. Also, when someone gets a new number it will still be listed to the last person so we dont know if you're lying or not about having a wrong number. If you do tell us we have the wrong number we are supposed to remove it. There is no do not call list because this is not telemarketing. We CANNOT call after 9 because the computer system doesnt even let up. you may have a number with a different area code than the state you live in which can cause phone calls to come before 8 am or after 9 pm. I will agree that some of the collectors here are very rude and it does make the job harder on the rest of us. my advice is to check and see if your phone number is listed to someone else. It not, tell the callers it is the wrong #. If that does not work make sure you got a name and talk to a superviser. After that I would report them because that is harrassment. We also have to verify information before we can tell you why we are calling. It is easy for us to have a wrong number and it is illegal for disclose your information to anyone else. The only way to know we are talking to the correct person is to verify the last 4 of your ssn. And to anyone who says our job it pathetic and the money we make is pathetic, we have collectors who ger paid $12.00 and hour with $6000 bonuses every month. Thats not so bad.

I've gotten many calls from 612-307-5885. I never answer to numbers I don't recognize, but I got curious so I called the number back. I got a machine answered saying "target account services"..I've never had a Target Card and have never filled out anything for target. Don't know why they keep calling me. Next time I'll answer and figure out why they keep calling.

I've received several phone messages from this company. The very first message stated that they found my name and number in the local phone book, but they never said why they were calling. According to my google search, they are some sort of collection agency,as others have reported here. After getting several messages from this company, with the messages getting more threatening, I finally broke down and called them. They claimed that someone at my phone number was related to someone who owed a debt and they were trying to get in touch with the person who owed the debt. Ridiculous claim!! Since they found my name and number in a phone book, how could they possibly know who I'm related to?!? I told them that I was in no way related to whom they were looking for, and I asked them to remove my number from their call list. We'll see what happens...

I recently opened UPS Acct. When you get a call that is dead air it is an auto dialer doing the work. The auto dialer dials a bunch of numbers and then when you answer it gives the call to the first available telemarketer. If non are available then you get dead air or if you wait - it may get picked up. I never wait but it helps to know that it is an auto dialer - ie. sales call and I just hang up.

These yaw-whos call at least (4) times a day, asking for someone we don't even know. When you try to call them back, either you get put on INDEFINITE hold, or your call cannot be completed. I pay cash for everything I need, just so I don't have to deal with idiots like them. Now I have to get a new # and make it unlisted. I guess I'll send them the bill!

November 12th, 2008 Tea MD

Follow up: I answered the phone and an automated system said it was Target Financial Services and mentioned my name and asked for the last 4 digits of my SS#, which I entered. Then it automated system told me the total amount I had overdue. The system gave several options to select from and I selected that I had paid my bill. I always pay my credit card bill on time, so I was concerned why I was being called. I then selected the option to talk to a representative and she wanted my telephone number and said she had problems hearing me -- so I hung up. My bill isn't due until mid November and I am still receiving several calls a day from them.

I plan to pay the entire bill this month and cancel my Target credit card account. I don't appreciate this type of call when I have been an excelent paying customer. I don't like feeling like a deadbeat and being harassed when I pay my bill on time.

November 8th, 2008 Tea MD

I have been receiving several calls a day from 612-307-5885 for the past week. I have never answered my phone and the caller never leaves a message. My Target credit card is paid on time every month, so they don't have a reason to harass me. I plan to answer the next time now that I know who the caller is and see if I can stop them from calling.

RECEIVED THIS CALL TODAY 11/05/2008. THE FEMALE CALLER INDICATED: SHE WAS PERFORMING A SURVEY FOR EBAY. SHE ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SUPPORT OR DISMAY OF EBAY, WOULD I AGREE TO BEING CONTACTED BY A THIRD PARTY / MEDIA SOURCE FOR INTERVIEW AND KNEW MY FULL NAME AND REQUESTED AN FULL ADDRESS CHECK. ALTHOUGH, I FELT DUPED OR CONNED: I FELT THAT THERE COULD BE A CHANCE THAT THE INDIVIDUAL WAS A SURVEY TAKER..... HOWEVER, AFTER SECOND THOUGHTS: I CONCLUDED IT WAS A COLLECTION AGENCY FOR MY COLLEGE LOANS, WHICH WERE NEVER PAID FOR BY THE MILITARY, AND AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF RECEIVING THEIR CALLS: I'VE RECENTLY QUIT ANSWERING THEIR CALLS.... THERE'S A GOOD CHANCE THIS PHONE NUMBER IS A REPROGRAMMED CHOICE FROM ANY NUMBER ATTEMPTING TO ELUDE / DECEIVE OTHERS INTO ANSWERING THE CALLER. BEST SOLUTION IS TO NOT ANSWER THE CALLS WITH STRANGE NUMBERS AND PLACE THEM ON YOUR BLOCKED LISTS. BEST OF LUCK, STEPHEN

These people call every 10 to 15 minutes, 7 days a week. I have asked them to stop at least 100 times, and they usually hang up once I ask. I asked to speak to a supervisor, and got hung up on. I have contacted the police and filed a harassment claim against this company. Hopefully something will happen.

For a few days now, we've been receiving calls day and night asking for a Demi but we don't have any Demi's living in this house. This morning, I received another call from a rep named Kathy asking for a Demi LAST NAME (which turns out to be a relative of ours). She said that our relative left our phone # as the contact info, and that it was a personal matter and would not be right for her to discuss this private matter with other people. Instead, she gave me 877-409-2110 and asked for me to pass along the # for Demi to call back. I did a search online and good to see that this has fraud written all over it. Pretty amazing they were able to track relatives' info data!

Several calls - finally picked up. Surveyor - didn't ask for my participation, just went straight into survey. Objected to some of the questions (I'm trained in writing surveys and it was very biased toward the Democrat agenda) and was given quite a bit of attitude. Finally hung up. If this is actually a survey company, I don't believe it is a legitimate one.

How many of you ignorant individuals even read or understood the contract that "YOU" signed when you signed up for the the credit application? You - the debtor, failed to adhere to your "Legal" obligation to pay back the debt that you owe!. Encore reps educate and advise the cusomer of many payment options to help them get out of debt. Encore has an extensive training progam that all employees must pass in order to "Help" all consumers. Maybe, just maybe, if all the "DEBTORS" who are complaining about the debt they owe would try to make an effort to pay instead of using their extra funds on want to purshase items instead of have to payments. They would realize that they are the issue, not the companys that try to make a differece inn helping others. Get off the internet and stop playing the victum and help yourself and find a job or an addition job and pay "YOUR" dept and stop playing the blame game and pay you bill and the collection calls would stop. The choice is yours. Think about it. Who is a fault here....hummmm...if you owed me money... I would make every legal effort to get it!
