I didn't get the whole message, but recorded message said we could get a better mortgage rate. Calling back the number to demand them to take us off their list only resulted in "the number you have dialed is not in service" message. My guess is that that was recorded by the people so they can see who calls them, then they'll probably call us again. Anyway, they've been reported to the Do Not Call site.

The FTC shut down several "Rachels" and "Heathers" in 2010 based on complaints to them and state AGs. These characters can be slippery and seem to breed like roaches. The cleanup will stall if people do not keep pouring on the complaints each time these criminals call.

June 13th, 2011 Jack CT

They call and call and call. Why isn't something being done about these annoyances?

May 31st, 2011 Resident47 RI

} "you called me I didn't call you"

Please ... These criminals will say anything to confuse you. When you revoke call permission, that ends the argument. It hardly matters who dialed first! Some of these credit reprice scammers are likely calling from outsice the US and know citizens can't sue them, so they think they are entitled to curse and abuse.

May 31st, 2011 cmm CT

Company calls every 24-48 hours always from a different number with same recording saying that I can lower my credit card interest rate, press 3 to stop the calls (gets beeping sound), press 9 to speak to a rep. In the past when I pressed 9 I got a rude person and when I asked to be put on the 'do not call' list they replied "you called me I didn't call you". The company says they are cardholder services and tries to trick you into thinking they are calling from YOUR credit card company but they ask YOU to tell THEM who your company is. Lastly they are breaking the law by not abiding by the FCC 'do not call' law. Very annoying.

May 10th, 2011 Mamax4 CO

When one of these "scammers" call, I always say something surprised like "is this about my Chapter 11 filing this week?" It stops them for a few months. These are not legit callers so there's no way to report them. Rather than get mad, just imply that you are broke and have actually legally filed for bankruptcy. They won't bother you for awhile.

May 2nd, 2011 Jack CT

This was another call, the forth in a week, from the famous Rachel at Cardmember Services. They did not respond to the "Press 1" prompt, and disconnected. I have reported the Do Not Call List total lack of enforcement against these people to Senator Chris Dodd (much good that will do). Since each bogus call is supposed to bring a $10,000 fine, enforcing the law against these people could pay off the National Debt.

August 18th, 2009 B. Fin WA

Recording saying they have a "VERY IMPORTANT message about our credit card account. Nothing is wrong, but it is VERY IMPORTANT that you call about lowering your interest rates." And so on... I only wish there was some way to find out who these people are and have them fined for violations of the federal Do-Not-Call. At $50K a pop, they wouldn't be at this for very long.

August 18th, 2009 BA

This is "collection company". We have received at least 4 calls at various times and they want you to press 9 . We do not owe anyone anything!! Some company in Virginia I think! Says we are not in trouble yet!!

August 17th, 2009 J the Alien WA

No message left. I was not home when called.

August 17th, 2009 wtf WA

I didn't answer the call because it was anonymous and there was a 000 prefix, has anyone else seen this?

(877) 337-3099

June 14th, 2008 Cynthia White NY

skip tracing and they've received written notice from me to stop.

June 11th, 2008 Cynthia White NY

Multiple calls on a daily basis. They are skip tracing and I have written letters telling them to stop and they don't. Need to find an attorney to help me sue.

June 7th, 2008 angie MO

we called back after we got the call. Told them to remove our #. we are on a no call list and they are in violation of this and we are sending there info to the no call list. lol they said it will be removed in the next 24 hours , and i said next time i get a call it will be reported again. every time you report there # to the no call list they have to pay a fine. So lets all get together and make them pay for calling no call list people. Make sure you all report every time they do so.

May 23rd, 2008 Sam FL

I've been receiving calls to my cell phone from these knuckle heads since Oct'07. A number I've never given out. Every day, twice a day, sometimes they don't call for a few days or a day, and you begin to think maybe it's over. And then it starts again, sometimes I get calls on the weekends, sometimes late at night. And to respond to Julle, the DO Not Call Registry is BS. They don't do anything in regards to stopping the calls from coming in, the just log the complaints. As usual with these Federal Agencies they do nothing but sit on their hands. Your tax dollars at work. I've set these bozos number in my cell's phone book to silent. So I never get their messages, just tells me I missed a call. It's ether that, or change my number, and I've had it for years, and I'm not bout to do that for some a-holes that got my number from some master list of phone numbers.

May 2nd, 2008 Joel CO

Company has been calling every day for about a month. I just filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission Do-Not-Call site, donotcall.gov

An update to the message above:

Once registered, it will be permanent (a law passed in Feb. 2008) not just 5 years, unless you call and have it removed. Hope this helps!

April 18th, 2008 Julie PA

I got an email from a coworker in January of 2008:

REMINDER.... 5 days from today, all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls.

To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222.

It is the National DO NOT CALL list. It will only take a minute of your time.
It blocks your number for five (5) years.
You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked.
You cannot call from a different phone number.
It take about 20 seconds

April 6th, 2008 rick TX

they say i owe a debt,want personal information they should already have and won't put it into writting.

April 6th, 2008 richard TX

some debt i am supposed to owe someone. they won't say.they won't put into words and mail it to me .if it is a valid debt i'll work it out,but they want personal information that they should already have.

April 2nd, 2008 Karol KY

They call at all times, do not leave a message on our ans ma. We will not pick up. This is very annoying and wish they'd get a real job and leave people alone.

March 30th, 2008 Fixed-it TX

Calls from this number used to drive me crazy. I bought a device that checks called ID numbers, and does not let your phone ring on numbers or names you specify. Worked like magic; NO MORE CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER ANYMORE!!!! interceptorid.com

March 20th, 2008 Carl

A recorded message on my phone saying that they would like to talk to me about a private business matter.This recording leaves the same message each time.This message comes every day around 4:00PM. Sometimes they will call 2 to 3 times a day. I am on the do not call list and I can not get any help from my state to look into this.

March 14th, 2008 Glenn NY

Today, for about the 5th or 6th time in two weeks, I received this message on my answering machine:
Hello. I am calling with an important message. This is not a sales call. Please call me back at 1 877 337 3099. That number again is 1 877 337 3099. When calling please reference the following number: nnnnnnnn.

I called:
Welcome. This call may be monitored or recorded. For our mailing address, please press 1. If you believe that we have contacted you in error, please press 2. If you would like to speak to an agent, please press 0.

Mailing address given: PO Box 4437 Englewood, Colorado 80155

I then pressed 2: a robot asked for the phone number they had called me on. I entered it on the keypad. The robot then said it would remove my phone number.

I was not satisfied with this interaction, so I then called back and pressed 0 for an agent. A woman answered:
Bay Area Credit. How may I help you? Me: I am receiving a lot of phone calls from you on my answering machine. Her: What phone number are we calling? I gave it. Confirm: xxxxx xxxxxxxx (a person's name). Me: Uh. I have heard that name before. But, it is nobody I know. I have received other calls for this person. Them: OK we will go ahead and remove your number.

In May-Jun of 2007, I got two or more calls for this person from a Walter Smith at FMS Incorporated. I called FMS, told them the person was unknown to me and the calls stopped.

March 5th, 2008 Steve CO

I have been getting phone calls for the last 4 months every day from these people.

March 4th, 2008 sick and tired

Calls frequently and just says to reference a certain number to call them back. Isn't this against the Do Not Call law? I have no business with them and have never had any business with them. No debt, no reason for them to call.

March 3rd, 2008 not in debt

Called the number back on the caller ID and then 0 to talk to an agent they got nasty when I wanted the name of the company and the business they do. They gave me 3 different names they were trying to reach but none were mine. I have had this phone number for 6 years. They have awful records and from what I can find out are trying to collect "junk" debts. Consumer beware give them none of your information!

March 3rd, 2008 Consumer

They hung up when I asked who was calling when I called back the recording said to press 2 if you were called in error I did and they said they would remove the number in 2 days

March 2nd, 2008 zjp MD

Let's sue them!

Bay Area Credit Services a.k.a., U.S. Audit Control. Low life bottom feeders.

January 12th, 2008 Leo

After think about what I posted I could see how someone might think I was crazy. Relax, I don't owe any money, they call all of the time, and I think they know to call when my kids are sleeping. I just want off of their list.

January 11th, 2008 Ronin NM

Recorded usual "this is an important business call press 1 or call the 877 337 3099..."

This is a phishing exercise to gain one's SSN so they can research credit databases.. they should be sued for their illegal intrusions to get SSN's.

January 9th, 2008 Laura IL

Recorded message says 'this is not a sales call, we have an important message for you. Please call us back at 877-337-3099 and give the reference number 10199659.' We don't have any outstanding bills.

January 9th, 2008 Tom MD

Like the others, I have been continually harassed by this anonymous caller for months. The computer says "This is not a sales call", and demands that I call another phone number. This goes on day and night.

January 5th, 2008 Leo

All of the same here. I'm starting to build a case, and make threats of my own.

Thank you.

December 27th, 2007 Beth PA

These people call me daily trying to contact a person who owes a debt. Every day they tell me that they will remove my number from their list.

November 30th, 2007 Alexis CA

This number calls me 3-4 times a day starting at 8 AM

November 16th, 2007 Gail TX

I just called them back and talked with one of their collection agents. Told them I owed NO-ONE and wanted the calls stopped. They checked their caller ID and asked me if my name was someone I've never heard of. Told them emphatically NO! They gave an address and asked if that was mine. Told them emphatically NO! (All true by the way.) They said my number would be removed from their list within 48 hours. We'll see.

October 17th, 2007 stixx NY

Credit Collections.

October 12th, 2007 Kristin TX

Im so relieved to hear other ppl are getting this call. I was afraid my name has been dragged into something. I had just started a new job, had a new work line, and i've been getting this call 2-3 times a day. very tricky that they call from various numbers, thanks to mark for listing a bunch of them. Ugh. I work in client services so answering the phone is a huge part of my job...this is very frustrating.

October 9th, 2007 Cheryl CA

Since May 29, 2007 I have received 114 calls from this company called Bay Area Credit Services. They call at least once a day, up to four times a day, from 8:01 am until 8:00 pm. I've spoken to their reps on the phone and told them to stop calling me to no avail. I want to report them and make them pay for all of this bullshit. The number that I've been getting called by is 866-488-4299, and now I'm getting 877-337-3099 leaving the same reference number.

October 2nd, 2007 Mark

Caller is a bottom feeder Collection Agency which used to be called TrueLogic Financial Services, but is now using Bay Area Credit Services. Same people run the new company.

They call constantly asking for people that have never lived here that owe alleged debts.

It doesn't matter if you inform them (repeatedly) that you do not know or have ever heard of the person they are asking for; they will just call tomorrow asking for a new person. I think most of the names are made up anyway.

Other numbers:


September 25th, 2007 Joe NM

Collection Agency!!!!!!!!!

September 17th, 2007 DOROTHY CA

I receive calls about every other day to call this number back, I ahve no clue as to who it is, Want these calls stopped, as I get calls on weekends , after 9pm and before 8am

September 15th, 2007 Michael OR

Scam credit company that calls and switches numbers after blocking. Totally unwarranted, harassing and irresponsible. No accounts at our number. Reported to DOJ. Filed state complaint.

September 14th, 2007 BBar UT

I called and after getting hung up on several times by very rude operators, I was finally told the company is "Bay Area". When I refuse to give them my phone number or the reference number, they get rude and hang up. Don't call from a phone number you care about. It's a scam.

September 5th, 2007 Patricia

I have been receiving these calls for at least 10 days. The message says that it is an important business matter, but no details, if they leave a message at all. I do not know the company and have the calls come every day. This is truly annoying.

September 4th, 2007 Stixx NJ

Credit Card Collections. Unknown which one.

Pay the Bill.

August 28th, 2007 Jack

I get calls from these idiots every day asking for people I don't even know.

August 24th, 2007 BA_Boyd KS

Update! they have continued to call about a dozen more times since my last ost. I have had each call traced by the phone company. The last time they called i held for an operator and informed the gentleman "Billy Paige" that he was working for a company that is commiting fraud by report false info and debts to credit bureaus and that i didnt owe this debt even confirmed it with the phone company. I also told him I will be filing a police report and that he needs to get on the net and check out the company he works for. He was baffled. They have called on sundays and after 9pm also which is illegal according to the fair debt collection laws. He also told me they changed their business name from trulogic to bay area something. Not sure if it will work hopefully he told a supervisor i havent had a call back yet but its only been 2 days lol. oh and he gave me an address in colorado i will post i told him well your phone # this time says phoenix az. So these people are up to some fishy illegal stuff.

August 20th, 2007 Wayne GA

They call me everyday on my cell phone, I don't answer it. Someone listed their fax number as 303-432-7337 which is disconnected but if you reverse the exchange number to make it the same as their office it is a fax machine. 303-423-7337.
I am going to fax them and tell them to quit calling me. Maybe 100 times.

August 11th, 2007 not happy IL

I *JUST* got Comcast Digital Voice today and LESS than 1 HOUR after the tech left, these people called. I was outside at the time but they left a voicemail. "this is an important business message, not a sales call, please call 877-337-3099 and provide this reference number (read by a computer voice)" I immediately googled the number and found some interesting things. I'll see if they call back.

August 3rd, 2007 stixx NJ


July 29th, 2007 B.A.Boyd KS

We also have been getting these calls for past few days. very annoying we didnt recog the number so i looked it up and found this forum. We also have no debts in collection. I think the person with the "wardialer" has the right idea, nothing else works with these people. they are relentless and are good at hiding, so when you start costing them money Im betting they will stop calling. LOL!

July 25th, 2007 Ren NM

From what I can find out on line this is a collection agency. I called back and there is no identification, i chose the option for the mailing address, looked them up online by address and found this site as well as rip off reports on them. I don't have an AT&T account, so I am certain this isnt for me. Also, if they call and there is no answer, they leave a dead air message.

July 24th, 2007 Ali CA

I have been getting calls from this number on my cell for a few months asking for someone I dont' know. I finally called today to have the matter cleared up...of course it was a recording...I hit the number to have my phone taken off their list. The recorded message said it will take 2 working days, lets see if this is true!

July 17th, 2007 keekee

they work right downtown in milwaukee wisconsin in a space thats for rent for teltemarkers so no one will find but i found acouple of them.

June 28th, 2007 Gregg PA

I get the same calls only they call after hours and on weekends. I never get the option to press 1 or anything but they leave me a call back number. When I call back right after getting the message I get a recording saying that it is after business hours and to please call back during the correct times. This is so annoying. Not only can they not call me directly but then in good faith I call back immediatly and their office is closed. IDIOTS!!!!

June 26th, 2007 Biff AL

They are phishing for you to call back. Once you do, they have your CallerID info to aid their debt collection.

June 25th, 2007 deborah AR

name unknow

June 13th, 2007 zelmia

When calling back on 877-337-3009 there is NOTHING to identify what this company is AT ALL. An automated female voice says simply "Hello" and then launches into the various options.
However, one option (#2) is that you can have your phone number removed from their call list. I would suggest at least trying this option first before getting involved in any lengthy time- and energy-consuming dispute process.

June 10th, 2007 Char

The caller ID showed 480-543-1164. When I answered a recorded message came on and said that they had an important business matter to discuss and to please call back 877-337-3099 and then it gave a reference number to give when returning their call. The call did not tell who the company was or who the call was for. I returned the call on both numbers and got a message saying that their offices were closed and to call back during their business hours which were eastern time M-Saturday. The area code that that the 480 number was called from was Phoenix - not eastern time. I understand TLF is located in Colorado - not Phoenix or anywhere in the Eastern time zone. Sounds like someone trying to hide something to me where they can't be traced to any one area.

June 5th, 2007 Jackie

I got another (one of at least 50) from the 877-337-3099, but it showed on caller ID as 4805431164. I believe these calls are spurred by someone who used to have my phone number because I used to get tons of calls asking for another person and mentioning a collection agency. I'm tempted to change my phone number but then I have to remember who I have to give the new one to. It's a pain in the rear and all because someone didn't pay their bills.

June 3rd, 2007 Martin VA

annoying message, twice per day, every day, somebody knows who to remove ours number from the list or that to do in these cases?

May 27th, 2007 Tom FL

This recording leaves the same message and a ref no. each time.Every day they call asking we call them back.Very annoying!!!

May 16th, 2007 Johnny

Two calls in a week at approx. the same time -- 8pm. Both times I attempted to return their call and found their office closed. What a nussiance.

May 15th, 2007 TSACGIV



May 14th, 2007 Wanda CA

Have received about 3 calls from this number with a recording saying to call them back. Haven't done it, don't know who they are.

May 14th, 2007 abc A8 France

They left a message saying it is an important message and asked to call back this number. They also gave a reference number to mention when calling back. It was a woman speaking.

May 9th, 2007 Erin IL

I kept getting the same MSG's as everyone. I finally clld bck, it is True Logic Financial (collection agency) & we have no bad debt. Turns out our # got assc'd w/someone who formerly lived @ our adrs. TLF removed it & apoligized. YEAH NO MORE CALLS!

May 9th, 2007 Cheryl WA

Got a message saying to call them back. It is important. Not a sales call. No name just a reference number.

May 5th, 2007 Lorene AR

they call several times a week always the same thing, saying this is not a sales call,please call me back at this number, we have important information for you. I laugh and hang up

May 1st, 2007 Barbara

these calls are very a pain in the but, especially when your sick and the phone is constantly ringing throughout the day

May 1st, 2007 Brian

we get calls consatantly from this phone,they are very annoying when they at 8:00a.m. in the mornin

April 24th, 2007 Ml TX

Go to www.adviceontime.com and read the article on getting rid of debt collectors. it worked for me.

April 19th, 2007 Meaghan

yeah i've been getting calls from these people for the last 2 weeks, i tried calling the number back before but it didn't do anything, this time I actually got through and got a person, when i gave her that number they leave in the message she read my number and i said "correct" and then she read some lady's name and I said "no" and she said she was sorry and that they were given the wrong number...so if this doesn't work, i'm gonna start reverse call-stalking them like you guys and file a complaint

April 18th, 2007 Ms. B MO

This company is calling my cell phone and will not stop calling although I let them know they have the wrong number.

April 13th, 2007 Brian NJ

We too have been getting these recorded msgs from this company. We have no outstanding debts, nothing in collection, etc. We have not called them back but I do like the retaliatory spam calls idea!

April 7th, 2007 Cheryl PA

Don't know who these people are. IF this is a debt collector they are trying to reach the wrong party. We have zero debts that would warrant a collection agency. We are vigilant in paying our bills and in watching our credit report, and nothing erroneous is on it either. This is very annoying. Two weeks ago we had a bank calling us for a week repeatedly asking for two people we have never heard of. We finally got them to stop calling after threatening to notify the Atty Gen. for Consumer Protection.

April 3rd, 2007 John MA

These people are driving me nuts.

April 1st, 2007 Yolanda

They are a colledtion agency that attempts to collect long after the bill has been paid off. This company resorts to contacting references you may have listed. I have asked them to cease contacting my friends and family no less than 4 times, especially when they have my number. They assure me that the number has been removed from thier records and then resume the calling 4 to 6 weeks later.

March 30th, 2007 Jackie

I get this call at least 3 times a day. This is harrassment and these people should be sued. What about a class action suit? Are there any lawyers out there reading this who would be interested in taking this on?

March 27th, 2007 Stacia WA

I just recieved the call at out 8pm called back and the recording said it was closed. Im hearing that this AT&T and a bill collector..... Anyone think its AT&T

March 16th, 2007 Cam Sr.

These folks have been calling here for 4 years over a debt my son didnt pay when he went to jail which I have explained to them. Last time they called, I simply placed my wardialer on a loop to dial the 877 number, connect, disconnect,redial. Do it again. Couple days later a human called wanting to know what I was doing. I simply replied,"Being as annoying as you."
They pay for each call to that 877 number, and a computer can dial it toll free a lot of times in a short time period. They'll get the message.

March 9th, 2007 Linda OK

They have called sometimes 2 times a day everyday for the last 2 weeks. We have no debts in collections.

March 6th, 2007 Jay CA

They have called us everyday for the past 4 days. They don't state who they are calling for or who they are. I don't call back. We too are on the DNC list, no debt etc..

March 4th, 2007 Luke2 KY

I file a complaint with the FTC every time I get a call documenting the date and time. I do this after every call. It is time consuming but maybe eventually FTC will do something positive!

March 3rd, 2007 JJ SC

I think the owners are:
Paul and Cristin Konkel
phone: 303 932 8718
15 Honey Locust
Littleton, CO 80127
Might be useful to file suit.

March 3rd, 2007 JJ SC

I responded to the other thread for another of their numbers, 866 488 4299. Go to their website:
You'll find all of the info you need to spam the heck out of them, good idea BTW, John.
I suggest that if you do this, set up your modem or fax to call using one of the inexpensive calling cards. That way their callerID will show nothing but doo doo. Now, to set up that modem....

February 27th, 2007 ben MT

TrueLogic actually called around 7:40,but my fingers were faster than my brain at the moment(never type in anger lol)

February 27th, 2007 ben MT

this is the second day in a row that truelogic called.I called them back and they were closed.(they actually have business hours?)The call came in about 9:40pm Mountain time on 02/27/07

February 27th, 2007 John NJ

I get several calls a day from these yahoos. They never leave a message. I've got great credit, no collections.

February 26th, 2007 Ben MT

This number just called at around 9pm tonight. I thought it was illegal for any business to call you that late.This was another "reverse"answering machine wich stated it was an "important business"call and they failed to identify themselves. After some research I found that this company has been getting complaints and actually had criminal charges filed against them for the past four years.How can this go on for so long?Why is the FTC not doing there jobs?

February 26th, 2007 Darcee CA

We have received two calls from this number showing as "877 Services" The first time, my husband answered and it was a recording asking him to call them back with a reference number. That was yesterday. Today they called again, and I answered. I said Hello four times..and no one responded. I hung up. I do not have any accounts in collections.

February 25th, 2007 John CA

We get these phone calls a couple times a week, from 6am to 9pm.
Am recording: Something about an important message call back. They don't identify themself, or state the nature of the call. We are on do not call list.

February 24th, 2007 Michael

They've been calling every day for months. I answered it a few times but didn't realize how persistent they were until my wife mentioned that she has to turn the phone off when the kids are sleeping.

Has anyone called them and been able to get them to stop?

February 23rd, 2007 Luke KY

I get 2-3 calls per day for the last month.

February 23rd, 2007 judy2 VA

I return their calls, except its all at once...if they call me ten times in a week, I call them 20 times, one after the other and remind them that I'm returning their call as asked to do, and that it costs THEM money each time I dial the 800#. They stop!
Even after they say they will stop calling I still "return" a few more calls to help them REMEMBER.

Broadway Street, Suite 100 Denver, Co. 80209 Their office # is 303-423-4250 and fax is 303-432-7337 so lets all get together and flood their office and fax with tons of bullshit like their doing to us and put the shoe on the other foot

I've reported them and I want the calls to stop!

February 14th, 2007 Phil

These idiots are driving me crazy! Every day they leave a message! I've called them to be removed from their list (twice). They don't seem to have my number in their databank; however, I still get a call from them daily! They should be arrested! I'm sick of them!

February 12th, 2007 Carol WA

I've been getting calls about once a week. They don't leave a message. Just their number shows.

February 10th, 2007 Juan TX

These people suck and i am tired of them, calling for people i do not even know.

Do Not Call list does not effect debt collector's, so it doesn't matter if you are on the list or not, you can and will get called.

They have added an option to the call-back number to remover your number from their list if in error. You just need to enter the number when prompted. I just did it after getting 1 call per day since about September. Will see if it works.

Have had MULTIPLE calls from this w/ an automated message. Finally called back, and asked what the company was - Truelogic Financial. I explained that my number was on the DNC list, and to please make sure that they stopped calling. We'll see if that actually occurs - we've had something like 5 calls/week for the last 1-2 months.

January 28th, 2007 YOUR RIGHTS

What can you do if you believe a debt collector violated the law?
You have the right to sue a collector in a state or federal court within one year from the date the law was violated. If you win, you may recover money for the damages you suffered plus an additional amount up to $1,000. Court costs and attorney' s fees also can be recovered. A group of people also may sue a debt collector and recover money for damages up to $500,000, or one percent of the collector' s net worth, whichever is less.

Where can you report a debt collector for an alleged violation?
Report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state Attorney General' s office and the Federal Trade Commission. Many states have their own debt collection laws, and your Attorney General' s office can help you determine your rights.

The FTC works for the consumer to prevent fraudulent, deceptive and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop, and avoid them. To file a complaint or to get free information on consumer issues, visit www.ftc.gov or call toll-free, 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357); TTY: 1-866-653-4261.

For example, debt collectors may not:

* use threats of violence or harm;
* publish a list of consumers who refuse to pay their debts (except to a credit bureau);

* you will be arrested if you do not pay your debt;
* they will seize, garnish, attach, or sell your property or wages, unless the collection agency or creditor intends to do so, and it is legal to do so; or
* actions, such as a lawsuit, will be taken against you, when such action legally may not be taken, or when they do not intend to take such action.

Debt collectors may not:

* give false credit information about you to anyone, including a credit bureau;
* send you anything that looks like an official document from a court or government agency when it is not; or

They left a message saying they were calling about an "important message" and "this is not a sales call" and call them back with a reference number. They left this message two evenings in a row. This is not even my personal number they are calling on. I work from home and it is my business line paid for by work. We also don't have any collections accounts or anything like that.

January 13th, 2007 Dawn

We have received 2 calls from this recording. Press 1 to connect, or call 877... and provide the seven-digit ID number. We are on the Do Not Call list.

December 5th, 2006 Pat TX

Same message as Charlotte. We returned the call once, they asked for someone we don't know. We asked to be taken off their list, were told that they would, apparently they haven't because we get the call at least once a day.

November 3rd, 2006 Judy IN

I get this call on my blackberry several times per week. Have no idea why.

November 2nd, 2006 Mary NJ

The messages says that "This is not a sales call. Please call me at this number"

October 31st, 2006 Charlotte NV

This recording leaves the same message each time. Don't say who they are calling for or who they are, just to call them back with reference number that they give. They call a lot.

October 30th, 2006 Penny

I got the same message as Karen. The phone rings every day just after 8am. I work at night so this is very annoying. They call every day, even weekends. I get calls from multiple numbers. This has been going on for over a month. I have no collections either.

October 21st, 2006 Mary

This pre-recording has been going on for over a week. Every day they call asking we call them back. I do not recognize the company identified when I looked it up. True Logic Financial. We also do not have any bills going to collections.

August 2nd, 2006 Robert

True Logic Financial (formerly Genesis Financial Services Corporation), a collection agency in Denver.

July 28th, 2006 Karen
