Caller ID reads Law Firm with the telephone number of 877-404-4490. Myra has called from here several times attempting to speak with an employee. When I ask to take a message she tells me she cant leave her number or a message due to company policy. I find this rather odd. She then tells me that if the number appears on my caller ID to write it down and that is the number she can be contacted at. How is that not against company policy? I find that even stranger. When I asked where she was calling from she stated the Law Office of Richard J. Boudreau & Associates.

I am hard of hearing, and whoever keeps calling from this number, keeps leaving messages, talking so fast, no one in my family can figure out who they are. Now relatives with the same last name are hearing from them. I don't even know what has started any of this. Can't find an email address and have never received a letter from them. As I'm reading others comments about them, its probably from back in the day before MCI was AT&T and they changed my phone number to long distance, and I wound up with a 1000.00 home phone bill for one month of service, from my average $20.00 a month phone bill. (back when long distance companies were not regulated) They were sued by a zillion people, and our debts were released. It does show up every 6 months from a new collection agency. I guess this one is it's new face.

i guess it would be better to call him - his number is 3054435212. 3054435213 is a voip number, and if the real mr lamel reads this, sir, there is no way that you will ever trace who this is from what i understand of them. spoofing is usually used by people in another country to rip people off personally info and finances.

October 16th, 2012 some one FL

and regarding the post below from irving j lamel, i would NOT email that, lol. This guys website lists no email - hahahahaha. you could very well just be emailing the same rip offs that called you lol

October 16th, 2012 some one FL

well, we have a mortgage foreclosure, and its interesting that this guy exists, but his number is actually 3054435212. from what i can tell, this is a voip number, (internet number - you wont find it listed anywhere), and internet search indicates it is about an equity conversion program. this indicates either one: my foreclosure is on some kind of list and someone is using this guys name to call people in same situation regarding equity in their home (most likely), or two: im still on some kind of list but this guy cant legally call me so he is doing it with voip so he cant be traced, this to drum up business (he does real estate litigation). I find this second senario very unlikely but who knows? i wouldnt be surprised in todays world at all. I think thats unlikely tho. But beware this number!! If you cant call a number back, its voip (voice over internet), a great peice of technology, but like everything, it has its downside, its used to rip people off

I got the same identity - got the call at 9:45am PST and when calling that number 6 hrs later, its a recording saying that "number has been disconnected". If the 'att' in the ID means attorney, then this is very suspicious.
Test the number for yourselves.

I also wanted to add that the first time they called they had the right name, but wrong social and DOB (but I knew who they were referring to), but when they called today they had the correct ones. That worried me. The debt is not mine, I've already had it taken care of, but its still getting pinned on me. Typically when I fax the papers showing that its been settled, then stop calling, but then they pass it off to another agency.

July 20th, 2011 E. CO

Got a call today for a woman sayings she is a representive for the Law offices of Richard Clark. Asked me to verify last 4 of my social and date of birth (she gave me the #'s). I refused to and left it at that. I've gotten calls before from debts that have already been settled and taken care of (I have the papers to prove it) and fax the papers that show it and continue to get calls from different collectors.

Said my number was supposedly left as an emergency contact number for some individual but they couldn't tell me who it was. I told them not to call me back and to remove my number from their database, If they keep calling, I will block their number.

BB: Phrases like "important personal business" and "important business matter" nearly always indicate debt collection or skip tracing for that purpose.

FX: The call is so "important" they are willing to predictive dial you and then abandon the call when all the overworked reps are busy.

CB: At such an early stage you don't need a lawyer to draft a simple cease-comm letter. Sent Certified, it should be enough for misfired calls, and provides legal ammo if disobeyed. Probably JMF needed to write one, and also mark the workplace number as off limits as the law allows.

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.

Perhaps Syn's lawyer made the same error I did years ago, before I knew debtors had Federal rights and there are certain simple procedures to defend them. Fighting a bogus debt, I sent a whole packet of irrefutable evidence to the original creditor and the first couple of collectors. No one read or replied to a stitch of it. One collector kept sending canned weepy letters sympathizing with my "financial hardship". Funding was not the issue, proof of claim was!

What Mr. Lawyer should have done was send a cease-comm with that notice of discharge, something a consumer can do just as easily. The collector's continued calls in the knowledge Syn had a legal rep make a Federal violation. If a cease-comm was sent and ignored, that's two counts. If the "nasty messages" are too hostile or harassing, that is yet more ammo to take to court, and the collector will have to write Syn a four figure check.

16 November 2010 Attorney Hecker and APM sued by state of West Virginia.
A New Jersey lawyer and his Pennsylvania-based collection agencies will cancel nearly $8 million in alleged debt they tried to collect from more than 1,900 West Virginians.
Attorney General Darrell McGraw says Laurence Hecker and APM Companies will pay $45,000 in refunds and to support consumer education.APM is the parent of APM Financial Solutions and Account Portfolio Management LLC, neither of which has working telephone numbers.
McGraw said Tuesday the companies unfairly pressured people and threatened lawsuits.
He says most debts the companies were trying to collect were so old, they could not legally sue anyone.
McGraw says the companies were also working in West Virginia without being licensed or bonded as required by state law

This company is owned and operated by scum of the earth. They are calling me daily, harassing me in regards to a debt that was discharged by Chapter 13 bankruptcy four years ago following the death of my husband in a car accident (he was hit by a drunk driver).

I have had my lawyer send these scumbags the legal documents which state clearly that the debt is discharged by the court, and still they call.

They bought the debt from the original creditor.. and now won't leave me alone

These people should have been ones to die in that car.. not my husband. And I hope the woman who keeps leaving those nasty messages soon meets a drunk driver of her own...

Dear Mr. Abdulahi:

Last week you were at the school with the intention of registering your two daughters. An encounter with two male students, who, as per your description, were “holding hands and kissing” in the hall had resulted in your uncontrolled verbal abuse about how “gays are punished under Shariah“. Furthermore your comment to a female teacher who came to investigate that she is to “lower her gaze” in your presence because you are a male is totally unacceptable and offensive in our culture. Not only have you proved to be an embarrassment to yourself, you also embarrassed your daughters.

It is abundantly clear that you posses an extremist religious and cultural view that is incompatible with the policies of this school and the TDSB. The TDSB attempts to treat all students, regardless of race, religion and sexual orientation equally; clearly your devotion to a religion that has not yet joined the mainstream of a civilized world, I would suggest that an all-Islamic girls school would be more suitable to your daughters.

Pursuant to your conversation with a member of Student Services, I am very pleased to hear that you will be enrolling your daughters at a nearby Islamic school. As an educator I urge you to engage in continued productive dialogue with both your daughters in order that they do not receive an inferior Islamic education that may hinder their future prospects.


Sincerely,



GS

A woman who said she was calling from the law office of L Hecker(same as caller ID) said she was trying to get in touch with the same last name as mine. The party she said she was trying to reach happens to live nearby and told her she had the wrong family. She then asked me to pass along the attorney's number to the one she was trying to reach. This is strange in retrospect since she passed along to me the other family's true address and I wondered later why they simply don't send a registered letter to the family. I have concluded that it is some type of scam!

My sister received a call at her workplace from the Law offices of Richard Clark, or so they say. The man on the phone said that it was urgent that I call them back. He said he couldn't disclose any information to her and only left an extension number. I called back and was put on hold then passed to Roxanne Garza. She asked me a few identification questions in order to look up my file...should have rung a BELL!! First of all I don't and never have lived in Texas..I suppose I was scared that something was wrong. I stupidly gave her information that I shouldn't have. I don't have any debt whatsoever. SO i alerted all the necessary goverment agencies out there even made a police report. If anyone else gets this call...do no, I mean do not give them anything..THEY'RE A SCAM!!! Here's the info i've collected on them. Both 18668542770 and 7137822700 are numbers for the Law Offices of Richard Clark. I called both just to make sure...same people both times. The receptionists name is Marylynn. I was told to call Extension # 2243 which belongs Cory Bruceheart..he was never in his office. The one I stupidly gave my info to was Roxanne Garza, her extension number is 2295. Hope this helps. If you do receive a call from them ...ignore it. That or try and get as much information from them and ALERT the POLICE. No one should have to go through what I did!

July 2nd, 2010 WOW

I am amazed at how many ppl r sayin the collectors r in the rong. Truth is if u paid ur bills they woodnt b callin u, harassin u or tellin ur neighbors or family ur business. How bout u grow up n accept the responsibilty 4 wat u did and pay the bill. You may hav not xpectd to lose ur job fine but u shood neva hav accumlatd a debt so massive to begin wit. Furthermore, this is jus n great xample of wat is rong wit america today--no accepts responsibilty 4 wat they did they jus blame every1 else n stand in line 4 the government handouts to pay their bills. Get a life n b responsible if u did fix it. No job try labor pool

To responsible,Ashamed,FUCKING STIFFS,ME,DK, Jim, and embarrasing: read my last posts you idiots. All of you make minimum wage to surf these websites and put your 2 cents in working for Bourdeau & Associates- a piece of shit collection service- because you can't get a decent job because you dropped out of high school and have no other education or training. I have a college education and make around 6 figures. I pay my debts and yet you say I don't. Good luck collecting on a debt that is not mine. Stop harrasing me and my family..... next conversation ou will be having is with my attorney and a judge.

One more thing: if this was a legitimate debt it would show on my 3 credit reoprts and it doesn't. My cell phone is not listed anywhere so how do these thugs get it?

July 1st, 2010 nacho IL

Received a phone call about a debt that is supposedl in mine and my ex-wifes name. Every debt that was in both of our names are cars that have been paid off or traded in. The bank they named I have never done business with. I asked for copies of so called loan paperwork and date it was opened and Margo told me to calm down and didn't have that info but could get it w/in a week. Funny, they know who the creditor is but no info about it??? too bad I have their numbers blocked from reaching me and only have a p.o. box to send me anything. Any other loans I had when I was married were settled in bankruptcy after I got severely ill and was hospitallized. This "company" has over 51 Better Business Bureau complaints against them. Oh and all these people who have been leaving comments about good people pay debts, debt collectors call only lowlifes, etc., all work for Bourdreau.

In my experience, the biggest mistake you can make with a debt collector is to respond to them. In their minds a response validates their claims and gives them an excuse to further harass you with telephone calls and mailings from phoney arbitration forums. Unless you are served with a real court order from your county, you do not need to do anything. I repeat, do NOT respond, do NOT even pick up your telephone when they call.

I received a phone call from this phone number. The representative name given was Luis Dominquez acting on behalf of the Law Office of Richard Clarke. He placed me on hold and then we were disconnected. I returned the phone call and was passed around continually through the phone system from a person posed as a receptionist through to various people. This continued on for approximately 10 minutes before the Luis Dominquez finally picked up the phone. He then wanted me to provide information to him in attempt to locate a file he said he had about me. I admonish anyone speaking to persons that you don't know to have them to send any information that is alleged against you, in writing. This is any type of collection agencies, reasonable service, in attempt to collect a debt. None the less, I never found out what this call was regarding.

This company is a group old older men who prey on young boys. They hav a philosophy which preaches that sex between older men and young boys is okay in the eyes of God. They are presently being sued by the attorney generals of 37 different States around the Country. Whenever one of their group is arrested/prosecuted they use archaic legal provisions and twist them in a way to attempt to make their devious sexual practices appear to have a precedent in the laws that existed before slavery was outlawed in 1863. Their front business is debt collection but their real motive is the victimization of young, innocent boys. These folks are attornies who went off track somewhere and need to be stopped.

March 26th, 2010 Marianne Levy NJ

keeps calling asking for someone who does not live here. Cannot speak to a person. They call non-stop. It appears to be a computer generated call and the voice is not (personal) - it appears to be a computer voice. They call non-stop! from early morning to 9 pm at night. They are relentless! I am 68 yrs old - have not debt! pay all my bills on time. Even my house is mine! Cannot get them to stop no matter how many times I tell them. I am going to call the phone company and block all their numbers.

After reading all the other posts I guess that is the only thing I can do.

I answered the phone and the guy asked me three times if I was who I was. I knew something was up. When he wanted to know my address I hung up. They called back two more times and I ignored.

Whats pressing, and most odd, is the organization only got my cell number by calling relatives and claiming they were associated with the "Attorney General" of the state they reside in. They quickly abliged by giving out my new cell.

Interestingly I am getting a lawyer friend to look into what laws may have been broken in this case and any legal recourse that may be taken.

Recieved two messages from a Dave Gagnon at my work and work cell numbers. I called back and he was nice at first but when I refused to verify the last 4 digits of my social, he started becoming very rude. Explained I don't verify any part of my social over the phone to unknown persons, he stated I wasn't giving him my social, just verifying the last 4. I said I gave you may name and you obviously have my phone numbers so what is this about? He said if I want to be uncooperative, then I need to get an attorney. I started to say I can't get one if I don't know why and he cut me off and said I'm gonna need one. I said I need to know what this is about before I get one. He kept talking over me. He asked if I had received the letters from him and I said I've never heard of your company before. He explained they were a debt collection agency. I said to send something in writing and he refused saying they are not letter carriers and the other letters never came back so they were delivered. I said I didn't receive them, he said tough we arent' going to resend out letters to you, you got them. He continued to talk over me and I said he needed to stop being rude and so I could stop being rude and he said yes, you are being rude. I said I am verbally telling you to not contact me by phone again and to send it in writing. He continued to be nasty, said they WILL NOT send anything more to me in writing and refused to let me speak, telling me I didn't understand my rights! I'm in the legal profession and know my rights! Recorded call and told him so. He continued to be nasty and refused to let me speak so I hung up. I've been told BY ATTORNEY'S to NEVER verify any part of your social security number or cc#, etc. to people you don't know over the phone. If I owe something to someone fine but I can't pay it if they don't tell me who it is! Can't wait to see if he calls back.

These people call up to 6 times per day asking for a relative of mine who lives in a completely different state, at least 1,000 miles from me. They say if you are not this person, to disconnect or hang up. I do this and they keep calling. They leave a number to call and when I try to call them to tell them I know nothing of this debt, I get disconnected. Sounds like they don't care who they scam just as long as they can bully people into paying someone else's debt. Don't know how they got my number except that my last name is the same as my relative's. If they continue, I will file charges against them and I guarantee I will win.

I called the number that came through on my phone, not the number that they gave me to call. The "debt" was charged to us in some way by a plumbing company that we used in another state but the invoice was from a date when we lived in an entirely different state so we could not have ran up that bill. I think that people ought to call the number to see if they are being called about a mistaken debt. Otherwise, they might just keep getting phone calls every day. I'm glad I called, the person was nice and said she would ask for proof of debt from the plumbing company and if they cannot provide it, no more calls would come in to us. Because we did not even live in that state at the time the bill was supposed to have happened, and do not own any homes in that state etc. I am sure it is a mistake on the part of the plumbing company.

January 30th, 2010 fed up

They first started calling me in June 2008 looking for somebody else. After written correspondence back and forth they agreed (in writing), that they had the wrong person. calls stopped for about 1 year, and have started up again. Despite ackowledging they have the wrong person, they continue to call and harass me. Said that they will continue to call until the debt is paid, even if it is not mine.

Have hired an attorney to sue under the FDCPA and the TCPA. Don't see how I have any choice.

Their law firm is Bennett & Deloney out of Utah. Their old address is 1265 E. Fort Union Blvd., Suite 150, Salt Lake City, UT 84047. Although according to them, their new address is 10542 S. Jordan Gateway, Suite 200, South Jordan, UT 84047. Individual name partners are Michael B. Bennett and Richard H. Deloney. Based upon a cursory background check, it appears that they can't keep people working there. Their partner Ron Noyes, apparently got fed up and left as well.

I had had problems with this "law firm" in the past. They are also known as Cach, L.L.C. However, recently I answered the phone when they called and spoke with one of the nicest gentlemen ever. He promptly worked out a deal for me on a debt that I owed. Original debt was $1,300 and he petitioned the attorneys for a one time offer of $506.50. Now, not only do I not have to deal with the jackasses of that company anymore, but my credit score is looking a whole lot prettier. If anyone has any further problems, SEND THEM A LETTER TELLING THEM NOT TO CALL YOU ANYMORE AND DOCUMENT EVERY CONTACT YOU HAVE WITH ANYONE FROM THERE. For an address go to their website www.bronsonandmigliaccio.com

Another dirt-bag lawyer who has prostituted his name and office to a scumbag collection company. Keep reporting this bottom feeding, ambulance chasing, pond scum to your state attorney general. Maybe with enough complaints against these crooks someone will eventually listen and shut them down and throw them back in jail where most of them probably were before turning to this "lucrative enterprise!"

They answered Goodwin & Bryan. I asked him why i keep getting calls every day. he said :"ok, and what is your number". as if! I said well why are you calling me. That douche actually said "that's none of your business".
I hung up.
I know collection agencies now call saying they are from a law office. when i break it on down they admit they are a "legal assistant". then i ask if they are calling to collect?" they say "yes". The is ask "and you are an agent with with the law firm". They say "yes". Then I say "so you are a bill collector. get a real job." The I hang up.

This must be the 7th or 8th call that I have received from these people, each one asking for someone of a different name whom I have never heard of. This time, a Mr. "Kelshunak (sp?)" called advising that a law suit has been filed and that I or a legal representative phone him back immediately. He called me by the name of "Alicia". I never knew an "Alicia" in my life! I don't think that this is a collection agency. I think that it may be some sort of a scam. A collection agency that broke so many rules would have been shut down by now I think due to complaints. What is needed is an undercover person to accept these calls and go the full route to see if some kind of fee is requested.

Got a voicemail on a call "in regards to a pending legal matter involving Christopher Pybal" (sp? last name). Name given by caller was Mr. Gordon at Bronson, Colley and Bergman. Callback was 888-990-8100, x4213. Sounds pretty fishy to me, I'm waiting to see if they call again. I know I don't owe anybody any money, but that name does sound vaguely familiar, like maybe someone I went to high school with (10 years ago). But then again I'm awful with names, so who knows?

December 4th, 2009 RB DC

They keep calling and then hang up when I answer. Call at least 4 times a day. Total harrassment. I called them and spoke to a "John Gordon" who was super rude as expected and told me that they would continue calling me even though I explained that the debts in question had been sorted out with the original student loan company.

Tony called my house number, which the guy used on resume's and stuff and also called my cell phone which the renter did not ever use. I'm glad I looked online first before going through the trouble of finding the guy at work since I have no forwarding addresss or phone number for the guy. Caller ID said Bronson Law. guy stated that he was from Bronson Law Firm and that the man would find out soon enough, but Tony would like to talk to him first. I know the guy had money trouble.

FROM THE BUD HIBBS WEBSITE: Hold your nose, the smell from this assortment of wasted law licenses makes a garbage barge smell like perfume. These are TOXIC WASTE debt collectors, some of the worst in America.

The following individuals are still licensed to practice law in Utah under the name of Bennett & DeLoney: Richard H. DeLoney Michael B. Bennett Douglas R. Short Derek J. Barcla Michael J. Young

They give a new meaning to con-men and scum bags. Vultures, con-men, thieves, dirty, disgusting, wasted law licenses, I can't conjure up a phrase that adequately describes the sheer ugliness and disgust of this group of lawless holders of bar cards and law licenses.


Fax the Cease-Comm Letter to 801-963-9955

DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS LAW FIRM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE! THEY ARE LIARS, CON-MEN, THIEVES!



They were recently fined more than $50,000 by the state of West Virginia for ripping people off on bounced check fees. These losers of law must be snorting something that fogs their abilities to count from 1-10, because the way they figure a debt is to add on fees that boggle any rationale thinking individual.



Also, below are updated e-mail addresses & website for Bennett & Deloney: www.bennett-deloney.com rdeloney@bennett-deloney.com

FROM ME: These guys ARE pond scum. They called me about a 200.00 debt from Lowes (over 10 yrs ago) that they now say 1200.00 is owed. I told the con man who called to take me to court - he got very upset at this and started telling me he would have me put in jail so I told him to go right ahead and then told him to "GO F**K YOURSELF." With that he hung up on me.

Some lady named Dawn Santiago left a message for my sister (I don't even speak to my sister)...she is with Law Offices of Bronson & Migliaccio her number to call back (888) 990-8100 ext: 4107 but, on my caller ID comes up (716) 204-4022. I really don't know what they really are or want with my sister. But. too bad because I will never forward the message to her and what's really intriguing is that they called my house number.

This is an email i've sent to this company,This morning i received a call from your company, and i tried to tell them to stop calling here in the morning because my sister who they are trying to get a hold of is not around in the morning and you've been waking me up every morning for two weeks now. The asshole on the other end said "no," When i asked if they were trying to harass me to get a hold of my sister the man said, "no thats not harassment." Then i asked "how is calling someone every day at 8 in the morning and waking them up not harassment?" He said if i just have my sister call back the calls will stop. I told the man i'll refer to as Fuck -Face he was being a jerk. He started asking me personal questions how am i related to my sister and such. He then asked me how old i was in a rude way, So i asked him how old he was and he said it's none of your business and i said "Well why the fuck are you asking me how fucking old i am?" and hung up on him. If i receive another call like this i will go to the Chicago police department and file harassment charges. So i would recommend that you assholes get your fucking act together.

They call here at least twice a week asking for the person who must have had my number before me. They refuse to acknowledge this and once even asked me to prove that I was not the person they were trying to reach. I responded by blasting an airhorn in the phone and hanging up. I no longer answer when I see this number or any number from New Market, MD

You're most welcome, Ed! Donald does appear to be mentally sick.... This site IS very helpful! So the firm has been under several names, but they behavior is the same.

These jerks call daily- today I got the rude "Michelle Black". When I asked repeatedly what firm she is with (she just demanded my husband), she finally must have read notes they have & said, "Oh, you're the wife." Call was ended abruptly. (Gee, what a surprise!)

For others of you, these collection predators operate illegally. Maybe if more of us reported them to the Attorney General, they would be stopped for violation of Fair Debt Collection laws. KNOW YOUR RIGHTS! The website of Bud Hibbs has been a great help to me in learning.

a debt collector can actually call multiple times a day, but if you speak with them they cannot call you back the same day. not all debt collectors are paid just minimum wage and some have gone to college.

I've been recieveing 10-25 calls a week by them, and once i called back, left a message. The same evening i got a call from a lady that got that message tellling me it was a home number and i dialed wrong!! i used that 1-800- number listed for them above and i actually talked to the office. They said they were looking for the person that used to have the number and will remove my number from their directory!!

Got the first call from them today and thanks to this site I know the scum I'm dealing with. I have a phone that has a Block Caller feature. One ring and "Blocked Caller" on the caller ID is all I have to deal with. Too bad it only allows 20 numbers to be blocked at any one time. I carry no outstanding debts and a regular review of my 3 credit reports bears that out. However, I receive several calls from a dozen scammers each day. I'm on the DNC list but it only works with legitimate, responsible companies. How many of those really resort to Telemarketing anymore? As far as I can tell the DNC does not cover "Debt Collection Calls" which these idiots claim is the purpose of their call.

Thank you -Karen in tx- for the info you provided about dear ol' Don. That’s the kind of thing we need to know about when dealing with any group. My sincerest prayers to the families.

Yeah, they called me n wanted me to settle. I said yes, we started talking about what I could pay. They said that was unacceptable, they wanted their money now. The guy then put his 'supervisor' on the phone and was an idiot. She told me to just apply for another cc and pay them on that. I told her no, that I had no credit. They had seen to that. She then told me I was an irresponsible person. I told her about her 'heritage' in graphic detail and hunk up.

I have since called to a lawyer and I'm going to do chap 7 and get them off my back. I told all the cc companies if they would just bear with me till I found another job, I would pay them. They have the automatic phone dialing things. On more than on occasion, I've come home from looking for a job to find my voice mail full of their calls! They call every hour! If they had worked with me, they would have gotten something, now, the joke is on them. And they are going to get exactly what they deserve for their 'strong armed tacktics"!!!

This is a scummy Collection Agency that uses various phone numbers. They KNOWINGLY break the law by trying to collect debts that are PAST the statute of limitations. In TX, they cannot do squat after 4 years from the last payment activity & the neg info comes off your credit report after 7 years. These people operate OUTSIDE the law! Do NOT deal with them! I will be filing against them with the Atty General's Office & suggest you ALL do the same! Fair debt collection practices are controlled by LAW- these people do NOT follow the law!

Last week, someone left the message posing as a police officer (no reference to a Department or State) stating ‘there is a warrant out for your arrest” . The week before that said only "I am coming to get you, just wait". Keep the calls coming!!! I am recording all of them. I am recording all of them and letting my friends and family have copies too.

September 26th, 2009 Valuable Info OK

RE: VALUABLE INFORMATION
When a debt is unpaid, the creditor has the right to collect within reasonable boundaries. A debt collector cannot call your job, friends, family, or referrences once they have been told to stop. They may not under any circumstances disclose personal information or terms of the debt they are attempting to collect to a third party. A debt collector may not harass you with multiple calls within a 24 hour period. However, they can call once a day. They are required by law to provide you a written statement of the account with all activity.
Remember the debt collecting employee, has at best a high school education and is paid minimum wage. The employee often receives an incentive for a percentage of collected outstanding debts.

If the problems continue record all conversations, so you have a documented record of harassment. During the conversation ask for the callers full name, and job title.

I am a supervisor for a finance company, and yes we preyed upon the weak. The interest rates are excessive due to the fact the borrower is high risk. All loan activity is within state guidelines. If you do not appreciate these standards then do not borrow money or take credit cards from companies targeted to the financial depressed. 89% of our clients do repay their loans. If a client has experienced an unforeseen hardship we will work with them to the best of our ability. As long as they do not lie to us, and maintain a honest open line of communication. We cannot collect on social security, workers compensation, disability, or unemployment wages. However, we can file for a one time lein on their bank accounts. We can also file for an asset hearing. The debtor is then required to present to the courts legal documentation of all their debts, living expenses, wages, and assets. The judge will then determine if they are truly destitute. If the debtor refuses or fails to comply with this court order a bench warrent is issued for their arrest.

An additional point I would like for everyone to consider; a large majority of telemarketers and debt collecting staff members are actually prison inmates. We utilized them because they were cheap labor. If their job performance is unethical, it does not effect them. They are already in trouble and do not consider ethics a priority. Evidence by their their current residence. Reprimends go in one ear and out the other.

Prison inmates are utilized as telemarketers. The person you speak to when calling a state tourism department, vacation reservation 800 number, etc., is most likely an inmate. One company in our states employs inmates as their telephone sales team. This company is private owned. Another company utilizes inmate as thier technical support staff. It is very easy to identify the debt collector that is an inmate. They are the ones who are unprofessional, use abusive language, and illegal threats. However, just because they are inmates does not release the company from responsibility of their actions. They are still liable for that persons misconduct.

If you are truly being harassed without cause contact an attorney; they will be more than happy to take your case. File a complaint with the proper authorities, document all misconduct.

Caller from this number was rude. He didn't give name & was trying to reach my (adult) daughter, who was not here.

I said she 'wasn't available', and offered to take a message.

Caller started telling me he was from a "law firm", so I congratulated him and asked if there was a message. He asked is she 'wasn't there or wasn't coming to the phone", and I repeated offer to take a message.

He then threatened to sue my WIFE, so I told him to go ahead & hung up on his nasty ass.

VP a charged off dbt doesnt mean you no longer owe it, it simply means you were so far behind that the cc company wrote it off and toook a loss by selling the dbt and getting what they could out of it! YOU still are legally responsible and you signed for all the fees and intrest if you didnt want to pay those fees yoou should have done one of two things pay your bill or not use the card. This is what is wrong with so many people they simply do not understand how credit works. Debt collections are important to keep intrest rates down and banks to be able to continue to help those who really need the credit and understand how to use it.

Disgruntled, that is my point exactly. Be respectful, be civil. Unfortunately 80% of debtors are imature irate ....'people'. I'm sorry if you were one of the people who was trying to do the right thing and was given a hard time, but when 80% of debtors are lying weasels sometimes it's difficult to differentiate. I'm not justifying it, personaly if someone tells me they have no $ I continue to be polite unless they are rude to me. The bottom line is judge the debt collector, not the company, and keep in mind that the last person the debt collector (who is human too) spoke to before you was someone like Linny, Anna, or Sara (see posts below).

I said that the employee by that name was not in the office and were they calling for her or one of our 400+ clients and explained to the person that we assist people who are dealing with debt collectors. They were very demading and rude, threatened legal action and hung up on me when I could and would not produce the information they demanded, I am looking to legal action. I asked them if there was anything the needed to say to me, they said no. They did not feel they needed to say the debt collectors mini-miranda, because they claimed to be calling from a debt collection law firm. I just laughed, they apparently did not know that debt collection lawyers are considered to on equal planes as a regular debt collector, (Heintz vs. Jenkins 1995 US Supreme Court overturned the prior exemption!).

Got a call from a Crystal Johnson from Hanna & Associates on a debt owed to Bank of America she only was concerned with resolving the debt and nothing else. As the debt was an unsecured business credit line that was behind on principal but with all monthly finance charges paid to date on time
she was putting the pressure on me to settle the account. I told her I wanted to see a copy of the document signed by me personally securing the credit line since the line is unsecured. She said you acknowledge the debt by paying the usury and she was waiting for documents from BOA. Being this is the second time she called in 4 days I questioned where is the copy of the original document and she slammed the phone down on me.

I've been getting calls from Washington Mutual for months asking for John Allen Bergendahl and Dorothy Bergendahl. According to google the Bergendahls own a house at 3849 Marber Avenue in Long Beach that's for sale so I guess they defaulted on the loan. According to my phone company John Bergendahl used to have my number before it was reassigned to me SIX YEARS AGO. It's pretty dumb to keep calling back a wrong number over and over so I figured out what was going on and chewed out WaMu on the phone when they called, telling them they were in violation of federal phone harassment laws and I was going to sue for damages and so forth. I also complained to the Federal Trade Commission.

Today I got a call from Wolpoff and Abramson asking for "John". I asked John who and the caller said "Joooohhhhnnnnn", as if drawing out the phonemes makes it more clear who the person is! I asked if this was Washington Mutual and the caller hung up. I used *69 to get their number and called THEM, had them pull up the case by giving them my phone number, and told them about how John Bergendahl had my number six years ago before it was recycled. I told them I expected an apology and the guy apologized very kindly and told me he put an invalid phone number notice into their system.

My advice is that if you get a wrong number call from these guys, then CALL THEM BACK and explain the situation. You will most likely get results. If they call you again then CALL THEM BACK AGAIN. Call them back EVERY TIME THEY CALL YOU. Make them waste their time and they will stop bothering you.

That said, if you really are in default on a debt then screw you. It's because of a deadbeat couple named JOHN ALLEN BERGENDAHL and DOROTHY BERGENDAHL that I'm getting harassed. Anyone who gets the Bergendahl's recycled phone numbers or addresses is in for a load of trouble. Once you have bad credit you will be unable to get anything in today's world: no credit cards, no bank loans, good luck getting even a simple checking account, and eventually your wages will be garnished from your employer. The only way you'll be able to survive is by getting payday loans and paying for everything in cash. Eventually you'll be retired and broke, living in a trailer home and eating Spaghetti-ohs every day. What a sorry existence.

August 1st, 2009 Owe no debt WA

The only debt I owe is being paid. My calls go to voicemail, it's clear I'm female, and I'm on the Do Not Call list. Nevertheless, I've received 3 calls now with this message: "Yes Mr. Yussaud, this is Rachel Lord from the law office [whatever the hell that is] and it's very important that I get in touch you with you. Again this is Rachel Lord with the law office [yeah and I'm the Easter Bunny] and I need you to call me immediately at 1-800-355-0123. Again that's 1-800-355-0123 and ask for Rachel Lord." It's tempting to call and tell Miss Lord that I'm on the Do Not Call list with no debt other than the one I'm paying and misrepresenting herself in any way to collect a debt is a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Please report this "agency" to their state attorney general's office so they can be put out of business and fined for misrepresentation.

Debt collectors to pay $75,000 settlement
Peabody law firm also to implement new procedures
By Michael Rezendes, Globe Staff | November 1, 2006

After a two-year investigation based on more than 100 complaints, a Peabody debt-collection law firm will pay $75,000 and implement procedures to protect indebted consumers under an agreement unveiled yesterday by the state attorney general's office.

Thomas F. Reilly, the attorney general, alleged that representatives of the J.A. Cambece Law Office PC violated state and federal debt-collection laws by using profane language, placing calls to consumers at improper hours, making unauthorized communications with consumers at their places of employment, and failing to provide proof of the validity of debts.

The settlement "imposes restrictions on this firm to protect consumers from abusive practices," Reilly said in a prepared statement. "It also sends a message to the collection industry that abusive tactics will not be tolerated."

In August, the Globe reported that Cambece was being investigated by the attorney general's office. At the time, Nancy Sterling, a spokeswoman for the firm, said the investigation was "based on a small number of complaints."

A Globe Spotlight series in July and August revealed widespread abuses in the debt-collection industry, but the series did not focus on Cambece.

Under the agreement, filed yesterday in Suffolk Superior Court, Cambece assented to a variety of procedures designed to protect debtors. These include recording all telephone conversations with consumers, providing proof of debt -- including at least two monthly statements from the original creditor -- and appointing a supervisor to oversee compliance with state and federal laws.

The settlement also requires Cambece to pay $20,000 in restitution to consumers, $45,000 to a consumer aid fund managed by the attorney general's office, and $10,000 to cover the cost of the state's investigation.

In his statement, Reilly said Cambece cooperated with the investigation. But the firm denies it violated any laws.

"There's no finding by any court that Cambece broke any state or federal law," said Sterling, the spokeswoman for the firm.

The filing "simply confirms a voluntary agreement between the Cambece law firm and the attorney general's office. No enforcement action was filed against the law firm, and no fines or penalties were paid."

We are working with a company to get out of debt. Bank of America is the company that has sent Frederick Hanna & Associates after us. They are rude and keep calling in spite of a cease and desist letter. They are crooks, that obvious, but what do we do? I forward call logs to the company we are working with. Can he freeze our accounts? Garnish our wages?
