The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want
phila subrb pa |
philasubrbpa calls from 7 phone numbers:
They call every single night and hang up when you answer the phone. Caller Id shows "TNS." When you call the number back to tell them to quit calling you never get a real person, just a recording. Even if you leave a request not to call on the recording, they still call.
I am constantly being called at terrible times by this number and they refuse to stop calling
TNS is a research service - runs surveys.

Not sure who they are. No message left. Im not past due on any bills, and they never called back.
Caller wanted to know if I or anyone in my household was Latino. I said no, he thanked me and hung up.
DJ: Mistrust of any ''wrong number / wrong name'' claim is standard procedure at all the rogue collection agencies. You will never get satisfaction from a verbal request, and number blocking turns into an arms race you will lose. As I advised here in March 2011, send a ''cease communication'' notice via USPS Certified with return card. This is the method promoted by the FTC and many consumer watchdogs, and the only way to set a legal landmine, as such a notice is ignored at their risk of a lawsuit from you.

Whether you are called a debtor or some collector thinks you can flush one out, you have rights and options. Many are simple to exercise if you only learn how. You are granted control of how you are contacted, the right to dispute debt claims, and the means to sue violators at low cost. The FTC and the CFPB can start you on your homework. See also if your state laws grant additional or stronger rights.

El1s0n, They were listed on my credit report as NCB Management Services. They are not a bank, but a collection agency.
Been receiving calls from them for years., They are relentless. They keep getting me mixed up with someone else with a similar common name and similar soc sec number. Went thru hell straightening out my credit report in 2009 to prove I was not the person they were looking for, but still receiving calls and mail from them in her name even though she lives in a different state and is about 7 yrs younger! I had TransUnion put a block on my credit report. Why they can't find her, I don't know. I tried calling the number they listed to have my number removed from their list, but they kept calling, so I called the 215-244-4200 number today and asked to be removed, so we'll see.
They called my home number, listed as "NCB". They ask for me, and ask me to call a different number back before "this leaves our office". From what you guys have said, I hope they don't start calling a lot. It was not an automated message.

Though this site reports these numbers as being NCB I have found no evidence that points to them. NCB is a bank, not a dept collection agency, thats not to say they aren't selling depted accounts to these people. But I haven't found anything to tie the two together as the same people.
Nope all this info helps..

It's just a market research company doing phone surveys. TNS Global Market Research (A company from Zimbabwe if you can believe it) www.tnsglobal.com Just answer and tell them to take you off their list (If you can actually get anybody on the phone that is, I keep getting a dial tone)
Ned: Almost hearing and actually getting threats make a great difference legally. Document all calls and CID carefully and record clean phone audio if possible.
Dan the cop reporting early in 2010 would never get a chance to send any NCO rep to prison, since debt disputes are a civil and not criminal matter. He did, however, have a solid FDCPA case any decent consumer attorney would take on contingency. Given that in a time of grieving his good faith approach was met with hostile and illegal collection tactics, typical for an agency lacking proof of claim, he would have had a pretty good shot at cancelling all the debt, striking the bad trade lines from his credit reports, and winning a decent payout for statutory and actual damages. Hopefully something got done before a year passed from those major violations. That's all the time you get to sue under FDCPA.
So there is hope, and you do have rights. You need to do the homework to learn and enforce them.
Caller left message that they are a debt collection agency seeking to collect a debt...did not say from whom they are seeking to collect from...Do not answer such calls...caller had that harsh debt collector attitude. You could almost hear the threats...
Okay, NG, you're a ''not me'' case. Send a cease-comm notice via USPS Certified with return card. The FTC and many consumer watchdogs explain how to draft one. This will set a legal landmine, as such a notice is ignored at their peril.

Looking for a "Jason Scott". This is a collection agency that called. I don't know any "Jason Scott".
They were trying to reach my stepson who moved out a year ago. And he never gives this phone number, he always gives businesses his cell number. Hmmmph.
NO MESSAGE JUST CALLS 7 DAYS A WEEK 3 TIMES A DAY
They call twice a day yet do not leave a message. The calls may be automated as it is about the same time that the calls are made according to the Caller ID.
I did a check of this phone number and came up with this information:

Bensalem PA 19020
They just called my house and the phone rang a few times.
They just called my house and the phone rang a few times. I did not answer. I do not answer calls if the phone number looks strange.
It’s called a “skip trace”, Wendy. Mr. Ex can’t be found, so collectors go trolling for anyone who might be associated, possibly including relatives, workplaces, and neighbors. At least “obtaining location” is the idea. Often this permitted call purpose is abused to shame the alleged debtor.

NCB is calling my house looking for my EX-HUSBAND!!!! We have been divorced 7 yrs-----why are they contacting me?
Observer, if you had only done a little homework on the laws as I'd suggested last month, you would not be giving such ineffectual advice. Once a debt is sold to a third party, the original creditor doesn't want your pleas and doesn't want your money. If merely assigned to a collector, the OC will still direct you to its hired gun under its agreement with that agency.
You (and two soundalike posters) suggest filing "harassment" complaints with a rogue collector? They will pin your furious letter to a cork board and throw darts at it, giggling at your foolishness. Complaints go to the FTC and attorneys general, people who can actually enforce the laws. A harassment _charge_ is something you pursue through the courts.
Change your phone numbers? That's done when you seriously need to hide from too many wolves and you've shot all your legal bullets. The FDCPA grants private right of action to, among other things, force collectors to prove their claims or shut up when they fail.
Did you know the foul language you heard was a violation? Did you know you can sue for that with your legal fees covered by the opponent? Of course not, because you'd rather spray weak theories than take the initiative to defend your rights. Collectors don't earn anything from being pesky, they earn by obtaining judgments and corecing payments, which is a natural result of alleged debtors remaining uneducated about their available options.
USE THE DO NOT CALL REGISTRY..IF THAT DOES NOT WORK..CHANGE YOUR NUMBER
just block all their phone numbers

if you owe a debt just pay that company...just hang up on ncb and that's all you have to do change all your personal numbers
change you phone number and do not speak to any of these people...one of them called me a stupid biatch.
just make the arrangements with the co. you own money to...end of story..when they harass you they make money..don't give them
a dime..give the money to who you really owe...get lost ncb
I think a majority of commentors here would disagree with AC's assessment. A "professional" collector does not need illegal and manipulative tactics. Please don't miss the large volume of complaints from people who are not named on debt accounts, not in default anywhere, and cannot convince the reps to quit calling without Certified-mailed demands.
If you are receiving repeated, misdirected, and/or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the FDCPA, the Federal law which regulates collector behavior and provides you simple tools for your own defense. It grants you control of how you are contacted, and collectors can be sued for their crimes. Learn your rights and first response tactics at FTC-dot-gov. See also your state laws for additional support.
i use to work for ncb management, until i realized i was too nice for collections. they are alot more professional then alot of other collection agencies. if you paid your bills, they wouldn't be calling you.
Again like yesterday you are quoting wholesale a Bud Hibbs page without attribution on several WCU pages in rapid succession. Could you maybe just provide a polite link like this?
ONE OF AMERICA'S WORST
While NCO Financial has earned what seems to be a permanent slot in our exclusive list of America's Worst Collection Agencies, it's really difficult to classify them when held up to others in the industry.
On one hand, NCO aggressively peruses and takes over other collectors in a bid to be the world's largest.
Meanwhile, corporate collection policy seems to sway daily, depending upon the wind. One call might bring threats to our active duty military personnel and their families, on a level reserved for terrorists. The next call will be gentlemanly, helpful and not-at-all like the NCO of old. You never know which one you'll get.
On some occasions, NCO takes the debtor into court, scratching and fighting for pennies and spending thousands to get it. On others, they fold like a paper tiger at the hint of consumer counter activity.
Perhaps the giant is learning from the mistakes of the past. Perhaps the sting of some many fines and penalties caused stockholders to crack the whip. We do know that two years ago, our email box and phone were overflowing with NCO complaints. At that time, every other complaint was about NCO. Now they just trickle in.
What's lacking in this big agency is a resolution department. If they had a team of 3 people to handle consumer complaints, put out public relations fires and resolve problems - someone with the authority to make decisions - they'd not only disappear from our list of America's worst, they'd do themselves much good.

These people keep calling me and even when I tell them I am unemployed for right now. They don't care. So I pay an extra $5 a month on my phone so that I can block then from calling me. And when they call me from another number I just block that number also. I am sick of being harrassed by these jerks that could care less about what people are having to do just to get by today.
If you have given your phone number to any one of a number of businesses, they do cooperate with each other, and will sell/ give your number to each other. I recently signed up for an online survey group. I haven't reached the minimum payout but a thorough research of the site convinced me it was safe. I was called by this number just a few minutes ago (see time stamp in upper right hand corner of this post) and my caller ID said it was TNS. I always screen calls from people I don't know. They did not leave a message.I do not speculate whether TNS survey research group is a legitimate survey company or not. I don't care, I hate talking on the phone.
wonder if they really are a collections agency.
I WAS MAKING PAYMENTS AND WAS STILL ACCUSED OF BEING A LOSER -- THAT'S WHY MY ATTORNEY IS HANDLING IT NOW. I WILL NOT SPEAK TO THESE PEOPLE..JUST SLAM THE PHONE IN THEIR FACE AND HAVE YOUR LAWYER DEAL WITH THESE IDIOTS..I'D LOVE TO SEE WHERE THEY WORK..PROBABLY IN A BASEMENT OF SOMEBODYS HOUSE.

just got a call from a female who refused to identify herself before she knew who she was talking to.
CALL 1-800-260-5570 WITH REF NUMBER ???? .... ASKING FOR MY DAD ,.,,, ON CELLPHONE ... MY DAD NEVER GAVE OUT MY NUMBER
CALL 1-800-260-5570 WITH REF NUMBER ???? ... VOICE MESSAGE ASKING FOR MY DAD //// MY DAD NEVER GAVE OUT MY NUMBER TO ANYONE
Caller ID gave this number, 215-244-4200, and said NCB. "Brenda" left a message telling me to call back at 877-901-3200 with an extension number. I have no accounts with anyone.
CALLING ME AND ASKING FOR BOBBY.HAVE THIS PHONE FOR MORE THAN 3 YEARS,DON'T KNOW BOBBY
Called twice today. Left no message.
Freaking as^^holes caleed my Mothers # and asked for me and she was Freightened something happened to me and then started to ask for all my info cell # house # all that and left a name and said its important to call me. What a Freaking Rude and irrigorant As^^ole he was
I had 2 evening calls indicated on my caller ID and no messages left. I searched thru LinkedIn and found TNS...in nearly every country. I too have an unlisted number that I have put on the national Do Not Call list.
i repeat its very important to change your checking account numbers or whatever you've given them in a panice from their threats...
i know i sound like a commercial but the debt consolidation helped me and i'm almost paid up.
this is the ncb collections agency..one of these jerks actually called me a biatch after i offered to settle...so now all my numbers have been changed. if you need to pay bills you need to go to a debt consolidation company. combine what you owe and then pay a small monthy fee until payment is made. that's it...change your phones numbers and any bank accout numbers right away...that's your first step..if they call again call a lawyer there are many 1800 lawyers that can help. my attorney said they are a 3rd party collections, which means they just harrass and threaten people all day long until they pay up...
debt consolidation is the way to go. find one and use them..there is nothing to be embarrassed about.
Just called my cell at 9:38 pm. No message. They also call from 240-210-7142 at least 6 times a day. Leave a message about once every 10 calls.
I don't know who this is, but I wish they would stop calling me. I don't know how they get thru, I have unknown caller block.
We keep getting messages from some guy named "Steve". He sounds like some young guy, and his messages were informal and basically "Hey, it's Steve, gimme a call back at **" so I just assumed he was some college guy looking for his friend. However, he's been calling at least once a week, and it's gotten annoying. I haven't answered, but he always leaves these messages. I googled him, and found that he's part of the NBC. I'm 15 and as far as I know my mom doesn't have any debts.
If and when he calls back again I might pick up and scare him off with the "soliciting a minor" thing.
A guy just called and wouldn't tell me why unless he was able to speak to the person he asked for. Very rude. I think it's a collection agency.
NCO student loan collection ... These guys collect on student loans
These guys are annoying some lady name "Candice Wright" keep calling me every single day. They have the nerve to call my boss and start saying "I HAVE A TIME SENSITIVE INFORMATION FOR YOUR EMPLOYEE" . I tell them to stop calling me and my work but they still call every day. They are going to get me fired. Anyways After 2 weeks of candice's phone assault I decided to call her back.... She started demanding that i pay 400 dollars a month on some old AZZ student loan. I WORK MINIMUM WAGE... I have no car, and no savings.... I live pay check to pay check... I told her this but she is a well trained DOG.... she just keeps at it... I found some information on some website made by a former collector and he talks about everything... Alll the nAsty tactics these collection agencies employ..... READ ABOUT YOUR OPTIONS... it turned out my payments were as low as 100 dollars a month.... THIS IS HIGHWAY ROBBERY.... PEOPLE YOU NEED TO BE INFORMED.... My blessings go out to you... Honest, hard working americans that are struggling....
NCO student loan collection I thought They sold car insurance but student loan collection is their game.....
These guys keep calling and calling... Specifically this guy name "Paul Smith" a collector keeps calling and they even try to get information about me from my 10 year old son.....
They are collecting on student loans, and they will try to strong arm you into making commitments that are not realistic. I kept telling them that my hours were cut and I couldnt make the HUGE payments they were asking me to make..... SO I WENT ON THE INTERNET....
These guys just lied.... I was able to negotiate a monthly payment with them that was more affordable...
I found this guy on the internet he calls him self "The rogue Student Loan Collector" and he showed me everything I needed to do to SHUT THESE COLLECTORS UP!!!
Read their stuff Seriously.... No joke... He saved my family... Really....
They have all of our phone numbers. Call and hangup.
Very rude Spanish speaking man told me about a debt that I owed. I asked him what kind of debt. When I asked about the name of the company, he did not tell me and he could not tell me what kind of debt. I told him that it should be a wrong number since I do not owe to nobody. He got very upset and even hang up on me. I suspect was a fraud call. I called the number back and asked whoever answered the name of the company. She just told me it was financial services. She asked me for my phone number, then she "checked" and said it was a wrong number.
Mindless little punks with nothing else to do but make money for the company, while they sit in their little cubicle tracing lines on their desk, while the worms slowly eat away at their tortured, torment little pee brains. And the maggots slow drain the green juices out of their fat, over blouted, stinking bodies. Until the next slim ball takes their place in the mindless, game of taking your money, and the corporation takes theirs. Until the next time, and the next place I will see you the glorious and powerful KING COBRA, remember me NCO Financial we will meet again. The King Cobra was here.
TNS SURVEY RESE
Getting several calls a day and voice mails for a Ms Parks. Called and told them once that they have the wrong number, but today it started again. I called and spoke to a woman and told her to remove my number from their computer. Let's see what happens.

These snakes are NCB collections not available on the caller ID but blocked on my phone now
My wife died recently from a long fight with cancer. Recently I applied for credit and found these people had seven entries of collections on my credit report for various amounts from ten dollars to one hundred four. Had so many bills through her illness and death I was sure I musy have missed some. I contacted them via their website, told them I wanted to resolve the debt and made the mistake of giving them my contact number so I could work it out. OMG, they can't or won't tell me what the bills are for and gave me a PO Box of where to send the money. They also keep calling me back threatening to file charges and put me in jail. I've been a cop for 23 years, so I told them "I arrest people like you and send them to jail". Guess there is no hope of getting this off my credit.
I get calls from collectors for another person, not known to me who apparently had my phone number before me. We have had the number less than a year. Its very annoying. I told the woman who called from this number, and she abruptly and rudely told me not to get nasty with her. I wasn't, just tried to explain and she hung up on me. I would like to report her.
Got my first call from them tonight. Didn't recognize the number. Didn't answer. Searched the number on the internet and found this site. I will be programming my phone to reject or ring "silent" for no more interruptions from these scam idiots. I will not play their little game of answer the phone to give telemarketers a list of who to call and what time to call simply because the phone was answered. Those who answer this phone number are sure to be future victims. Be smart. Don't answer any number you don't recognize. Google it first. Then, let your conscience be your guide.
Calls to everybody I know because of a dept that has been paid.Anthony Santigo Harrased people for no reason.Called him to find out what was going on he got rude and transfered me to his supervisor Debbie who is even worse!I think we should start a class action lawsuit against them.
rude abrasive woman whom I don't know. Filling my answering machine with garbage. I am old and had a brain tumor last year.Called two times today less than five minutes apart. Harassing!
Called twice so far this morning, looking for my name. Problem is, they have the wrong one. These people aren't rocket scientists...that's for sure. They can't seem to wrap their minds around the concept, that there is more than one person on the Earth with this name. They are calling from NCO Group, on behalf of Sam's Club.
Called at 10:00 on Christmas Eve! I owe nothing. I never have. They called 4-5x/day last year, but finally stopped calling several months ago. My bank (for whom they said they were collecting) told me to ignore the calls, there was no such debt, and that they sounded like scammers. Where do I report this harassment?
YOU DEBTORS MAKE ME LAUGH WHAT IS THE CALLER OR ANY ONE GOING TO DO WITH THE LAST 4 DIGITS OF A SOCIAL? AND THE DO NOT CALL LIST DOES NOT APPLY TO COLLECTION AGENCIES IT IS FOR TELEMARKETING COMPANIES
This rude abrasive woman is very ineffective as a collection agent. She is accusatory and demanding. I am unable to pay the debt she is collecting on but I want her company to know that IF I COULD, I wouldn't because of the way Debbie Roulette has spoken to me and my husband. She said if I did not agree to 3 payments of $1700+ that my credit would be ruined. I know she intends to do that very thing but I do not have that kind of money despite the fact that I am working from 6 AM to 10 PM most days. I am, however, using my hard earned money to pay of BB&T, BOA, VISA, World MasterCard, car payments, mortgage,insurance and 4 credit lines who did work with me, reducing interest rate and payments to get their money.
Continuing they said they don`t do telemarketing & that if You were called it is for a research project.
They continue their message by saying to call 1-800-350-8356 Ext 1289 if You want to be part of the research
project or if You want to be put on their DO NOT CALL LIST.
This isn`t right !!!! They called Me on a cell Phone which I have to pay for My minutes!!!
I shouldn`t have to call them to be put on their do not call list!!!!! Nobody should be allowed to be
making any unsolicited phn calls to cell phn nbrs
These companies have things backwards.
I called this nbr at 11:27 PM A recording stated that they are TNS Research. It said they are a research
firm & that they don
"Nonpayers" posting below sounds like the typical bill collector clueless asshole. I had $250,000+ in credit lines, used less than 40% of it and had perfect (730+ score) credit with "payed as agreed" on more than 30 accounts, until they one by one started cutting off my credit lines to just above what was owed so they could still charge interest. Then as each company got updated reports, they'd send letters lowering my credit line, citing the others being lowered, and raise my interest rates. I used those credit lines in my business (buying computers (large scale business servers) & adding software, then reselling at profit) and by chopping off my credit lines they destroyed my ability to do business. Now due to their actions, not mine, I have no business. Screw them - they screwed me.
I admit I owe this debt. But I can not at this time pay the min that they want. Asked if I could get a loan from a friend or family member. They will not take the amount that I can pay. And I do not need to be preached too, so I will not be answering their calls. Why do they not have to take at least what i can pay for now?????? To me that's better than nothing.
These guys need to be reported! They are calling my work embarasing me. I know there has to be something we can do. I know they can try and scare you. They cant do ANYTHING but harase you! Why do you think one of them wrote this here below. They do this because thats all they can do. Dont give them anything! All of you collectors not only need to get a real job but get some respect. Its not all about people not paying loans. Its about people who allow bad loans to be written and rediculously high interest rates to be legal. Screw you idiots that dont have a clue!
On the 800 numbers of scam companies like nco, I fax them to tell them to quit calling. I set the fax to call every 5 seconds for 999 times. I am sorry if I didn't get the right fax number.
There is so many settlement companies out here that say they can take all of your UNSECURED DEBTS and give you ONE SMALL MONTHLY PAYMENT!!!
They only do unsecured because if its secured then you will know its not being paid like they say. They send a letter telling your creditors to stop calling you its called
**Limited Power Of Attorny**
When your creditors get's this, it tells them that they will NOT be paid for atleast 2 or 3 years depending on how much money you are paying the settlement company, and how much the settlement company is charging you for fees..
So when they get this they take actions, meaning all you guys that signed contracts for your loans it clearly states,
Company shall have the right to pursue one or more of the following:
(i) demand and receive immediate payment from Merchant for such amounts,
(ii) terminate this Agreement,
(iii) retain any credits received relative to Sales Data, and
(iv) pursue ANY REMEDIES Company MAY HAVE AT LAW or IN EQUITY.
Company shall have the right to receive and setoff against all amounts paid by Card issuing banks in respect of Sales Data submitted by Merchant, in satisfaction of Merchant's obligations hereunder.
In other words if your contract says you can to sued, and your state allows
it, and the amount is $1000.00 or more, then guess what, You will probably end up infront of a judge explaining why you ignored all the phone calls when some one was trying to help you...
The debt settlement companies do the same thing you can do, No MORE No LESS
But they charge you fees.. So you end up paying $1500 to $3500 when you can save that money.. I understand that some collectors are ruff, but if you treat them right and be honest, trust me they WILL work with you.... "I DO"
When a debt collector calls you guys, Everyone one of you start out with,
"Well Have You Heard About The Economy" We dont have to hear about it, we work with it everyday. Let ME start out with, The economy is so bad because of all you people that have MERCEDES TASTE, WITH A PINTO PAYCHECK.. If everyone paid back everything that they SIGN a contract for then
we wouldn't need BAIL OUTS FOR BANKS, our JOBS wouldn't go under, Why do you people insist on tryin to take down a company such as a collection agency that is put in place to help the economy... And YES, I am a debt collector.. I do my JOB, I do help people get out of debt. I hear every story out here, the only thing that greedy americans know are, getting something for NOTHING, always trying to live way above your means. Now that
all of you non-payers want to complain about the economy being so bad, just look into the mirror and say I done this to the USA, and EXPLAIN TO YOUR KIDS WHY THEIR FUTURE ISN'T SO BRIGHT ANYMORE!!!!!!!!
Non-Payers = Bad Economy!!!!!!!
Pay Your Bills & Stop Making Excuses!!!!!
All you debtors try to run and hide behind debt settlement companies..
Let me explain this to you....

A Ray called from NCB and left a msg for my husband to call back urgently. I didn't want to call these people back, but I was worried that someone opened up a credit card under my husband's name and now it's showing up on credit reports. So, my husband called and asked for Ray x1318. This guy was actually looking for another person with the same first and last name as my husband and lived in our same city. He asked for my husband to verify his SSN. My husband said that he would not give him his SSN, but that Ray could read off the SSN of the person he was looking for to verify it wasn't my husband he was looking for. My husband thought that he would just read off the last 4 digits, but to his shock, this guy read the entire SSN to my husband!!! Thankfully, we are honest people...but what if that info got in the wrong hands? This was over a Bank of America Visa debt. I tried to look in the phonebook for this poor guy with the same name as my husband to let him know that this company is giving out his SSN, but there was no listing. Unbelievable!!!! Ray at NCB said he'd take us off his call list. He better!!!
A John Synder from NCB Management Services, Inc. has been calling, leaving messages on my answering machine but I have been ignoring him. Then my neighbor told me he called her and aked her to deliver a message to me to call him back. My neighbor told him to get lost and hung up on him. John Synder and NCB Management Services, Inc. are going to be held accountable and suffer the consequences for their bad behavior, that's a promise.
THIS COLLECTION AGENCY VIOLATED THE FDCPA LAWS & THE ONLY WAY TO HELP IS TO REPORT THEM THEY HAVE ACCTS FROM VARIOUS COMPANIES& THEY USE ACCURANT& GET INFO I.E. FAMILY,NEIGHBORS,JOB ETC.& THEY WONT STOP I HAVE WORKED FOR A COLLECTION AGENCY. YOU CAN'T BE PUT ON A DO NOT CALL LIST IT'S NOT TELEMARKETING. THEY HAVE AUTO DIALERS& THEY DO PHONE BLASTING& THEY PUT ANY NUMBER YOU MAY HAVE HAD OR THAT MAY HAVE CONTACT WITH YOU IN A DIALER& IT SENDS OUT MESSAGES FIRST THEN IT WILL PUT THE CALL INTO THE AGENTS CUE. DON'T BE FRIGHTEND BY THEM THEY CANT MAKE YOU PAY A DIME. WORST MISTAKE 4 YOU TO DO IS GET ON A AUTO PLAN OVER THE PHONE ITS NOT GOING TO CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE PC IT WILL SHOW AS OPEN ACTIVE ACCT WITH PYMNT PLAN. DON'T GIVE IN.
THE COMPANY IS NATIONAL CREDITORS BUREAU THEY ARE LOCATED IN PA BUT CALL DIFFIRENT STATES THEY NOT ONLY CALL FROM THIS NUMBER THEY CALL PRIVATE AND CALL FROM 1-215-244-4200 THEY HAVE BIG TIME VIOLATIONS THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE AVERAGE PERSON DOESNT KNOW THE LAWS AND GETS SCARED AND GIVES IN DON'T DO IT.

THEY CAN NOT THREATEN USE ABUSIVE LANGUAGE THERE ARE VERY STRICT LAWS BY ALL MEANS THE MORE ITS REPORTED TO THE FEDERAL TRADES COMMISION THEY WILL HAVE TO PAY YOU.
They call again???
They kept calling my house and kept asking for Joseph Custar. We told them many times that we do not know who is Joseph and asked them to stop calling our number. However, it does not work. I hope that Homeland Security and Federal Government can do something to help them to search for Joseph or stop them from calling our number. Their behavior is not American. They are trying to terrorize our peaceful lives. They must be up to something. Their identity is unknown risky to America as a whole because they try to recruit Joseph to do something illegally. NCB???
Caller ID: 215-244-4200 Caller: NCB. Where is the law of this country? Where is the Government for the people of this country? Again, please help us!!!
called me at 7 AM - asked them if they knew what time it was and she said 8 AM and I said no, not where I live - and she said you live in eastern ky and I said no I lived in Western Ky and this dumb bitch said ok. I will call you back at 8 and I said no since you woke me up you can just spill your speech now- I had made payment arrangements with these people but they still charged a late fee each month so payment wasn't going anywhere
They call again???

Called to ask "my help" in reaching my neighbor. When I told him I wouldn't give him any information at all he was incredibly rude and told me obviously I wasn't listening. He told me my neighbors' phone was disconnected (which turned out to be false) and he wanted me to leave a note on their door. Crazy. Called all the neighbors and warned them and then called the company and told them if they called again we'd report them for unfair credit reporting.
Some asshat called my number, no message, hung up. The only place I owe is direvt tv. And they can all turn blue before they get anything. They say I broke the contract, not true, they did. Service was out more than on. Their tech RUINED my tan carpeting, and I got the run around on how to file a claim, and who to file it with. So I am going to start answering the calls, and play my own version of screamers paridise! Hope they like it! lol
Left no message, called at 8:36 am. Also get calls from UNKNOWN caller and they leave message to call back about an 'urgent matter'. But won't leave company name or their name. I do not answer calls from unknown numbers or private callers. The people who work for these companys, especially this one should be put in jail. But they probabley offet their own collections account by doing this slimy, underhanded, illegal work. Gotta be the bottom of the scum pond to work for this company or others like them.
Joel Greenhut called me too, about my benneficial account that is over a year with no payment made by me. Although he was very persistant about calling (every three days) he had a very kind and polite manor manor about him, and I actually called him back after 3 months of his messages. It is my debt, no one elses, and I got myself into debt. That being said, my initial message to him was rude on my part, accusing him of withholding the reason for his calls on his messages as a way to get me to call him, and demanding that he not call me back on the number I was calling from, which was my work #. While talking to him, i must have expressed my fear of financial insecurity. He shared with me that he is 70 years old, and after retiring in 2002 from an executive possition with a retirement plan in place, he, like everyone else who managed to dilegently set aside retirement for themselves and where able to do so (fortunate), had his "money in the wrong place at the wrong time, and what happened to everybody else, happened to me (him)" So, he explained, at 70 he had to go back to work. And this debt collection job is the only employment he could find at 70. I have respect for him for trying to survive. He was nothing but proffesional and cordial, did not call me at work as i requested, and explained finances to me in a way that only a learned veteran can; information I obviously could use. If you decide to face you debt issue in the face with this company, I highly suggest Joel Greenhut as your contact man at ext. 1742.
Joel Greenwood called from 215-244-4200. He asked if I knew a specific individual who happens to be my ex, and how to get in contact with her. I told him that I wasn't in contact with her, but even if I was, I wouldn't provide her information to a stranger. I pressed for more information, I told him that I work in law enforcement and would consider it harassment if he called again. He asked if I was a lawyer. I told him to take me off the list, and repeated the harassment charge. He told me that "as of right now, you are off the list." I hung up. VERY rude.
Called @ 12:17pm on 7/30 - left no msg.
Caller ID showed the call coming from 2152444200 and the message said that his name is Bruce Merrill and to call him back at 8779013200 ex. 1435. I called him back and he asked me if I live in Ft. Worth Texas. I told him that I did not. The person he was looking for has the same name as I do. He asked me if I knew this person and I told him that I did not. He then stated the persons DOB and I said that I did not recognize it. He apologized for the call and hung up.
Say they are a national research company, calling for Bank of America, to ask 10 minutes of questions about a recently closed mortgage. Say "no!" Something is not right here.
Shannon Horn called looking for Charles or Kelly Capiso
Told to call back at 1800-828-1110 x 1476
Yesterday Kelly Capisos dentist called and said she was due for an appointment.
I have been getting calls from this number and I want to block this number. It is annoying have calls that do not identify themselves. Then the people on the other line are rude and don't have manners.
These people threaten and talk ugly. Stop them from calling people. They need to get a real job and leave people alone having hard times right now. People with debts to credit card and other bills would pay if they could. Look at our country right now , every one is having troubles. If they need the money that back go to the Government to get it. It's our tax money anyway being used.
If you live in Texas and are getting calls from NCO (the also go by NCO Department of Education) you can contact them at the following to supposedly STOP the calls. Good luck.
If you have a complaint about the way we are collecting this debt, please write to our CONTACT CENTER; NCO Financial Systems, Inc.; 507 Prudential Road; Horsham, PA 19044, or call us toll free at (800) 550-9619 between 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Central Time Monday – Friday.

This is a NCO Financial - a Third Party Collection Agency. They called me about an account I've never had. They didn't care. When I informed them that they were in violation multiple times of the Fair Debt Practices Act, they didn't care - I guess they consider themselves the gods of collection or something. They then started calling an acquaintance and disturbing them at all hours and discussing me with them (very rude, I might add and also a violation of the FDP Act). I have reported them to the Federal Trade Commission, BBB, etc. but the calls continue. They deny calling any other numbers other than my home number. These "people" are the Mafia of collection - BEWARE!
They are harrasing me of a bill I dont owe it was Identity theif from the HSBC Bank
card was open in my name I sent three signature and my Drivers License and Passport
what more do they want I ask the credit card company to send me receipts of merchandise that was charge and sign for in my name. They never sent me anything.I already reported this to the FTC and made police reports and they put me in this
collection company who I'm reporting to the FTC and Attorney General Office
Left a message. Said his name was Ed Haskell. Looking for another person. Said was hired to do an "Asset / Liability check for his client. Call immediately and he would let me know who his client was"
Sounds like a typical debt collection agency to me. Debt collectors have no teeth. They just try to harass you any way they can.
I have recieved SEVERAL phone calls from this number and each time I answer they hang up. When I *67 and call the number back it says it's been disconnected.
i was called by NCB the guys name was eric steele....he said... "a file for ***** has come accross my desk this file does contain very important time sensitive information... I need for you to call me back asap"
800 828 1110 ext 1879
He was calling for my x husband and we divorced 9 years ago,..... i have moved on and remarried... i am not sure how he even knew to call me .....
the voicemail message did sound really nice.... and I did call him back....he promised not to contact me again......
however...i am not the person he is looking for.....that is probably why they were nice
This is a company calling for Belk. My wife owed them less than $100 on an account that got behind one payment. The account was caught up to date during March. They continue to call several times a day. I ignored their calls to my cell phone and home phone. My wife can't talk because she had a stroke. They called my work yesterday and asked for my wife. My secretary forwarded the call to me. I told them my wife couldn't talk due to a stroke she had last year. The collector asked me repeatedly to let her speak to my wife. When I finally convinced her my wife could not talk, she refused to talk to me about the account unless I faxed her a power of attorney! I told her to never call my office number again. When I got off the phone I went online and paid the account in full. Guess what? They are still calling today....asking for my wife. What am I to do??
A "Kelly Wagner" is calling me to collect a debt, a second on a foreclosed property. It is under litigation so it should not even be in collections, but Kelly won't believe it. Very very rude, a real verbal bully. I asked her to mail me the original mortgage papers so I know it's legitimate. It's a legal procedure under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act. If the collection agency, or even the original mortgage holder, can't produce the papers, a judge will most likely throw out the foreclosure case. So those of you who are in foreclosure, give it a try. It's legal and may save your home. Anyway, she became even more abusive, if that was possible. She refused to give me an address and contact person that I could send in a written request for the papers. Thanks to typing the phone number into google.com, I came upon this site and now have an address and contact person, I think. I have never received such verbal venom in my life. Kelly doesn't know because I didn't let on, but she really rattled me. She lies lies lies lies, about everything, to get you to agree to a payment schedule. Don't agree to anything. I have a feeling that Kelly won't be calling me again, after my request for the original mortgage papers. She can't produce them.
please be aware these scammers are using a spoof card with ficticious names and numbers they can make up any name and number they want to scam money from you pass the word and don't fall for it better yet give names like I do and renata smith in michigan is a scammer.
i was called from this number by a man who said his name was Joel Greenhut @ extension 1742...claimed he got my number off the internet...(not possible)...looking for my next door neighbor...(whom i highly dislike)...last time i checked, i wasnt her message service. i doubt ill be doing your job for you Mr. Greenhut. why dont you do a reverse look up on my neighbor..I did...and her name and number come right up...D- bag!
Person insisted I knew a Tiffany Williamson. I corrected them and they told me I was lying. VERY RUDE! I explaned this was my number and hadbeen for some time. He said, then I wonder why Tiffany gave this number". I said I didn't know, he should find her and ask her. He said, i just did! I informed him he was wrong and not to talk to me that way. He got belligerent and I got a bit rude, but he deserved it!
RUDE LADY!! SAY'S I NEED A CALL BACK FROM ( my mother's name who doesn't even live here) and leaves a number and an extension. She sounds like a mid 40's black lady. She calls at least twice a day. I don't answer. I blocked the number 214-244-4200. I am on the "Do not call registry." Hope it works.
Called indicating doing a survey for a major company. They would not disclose for which company when I asked. Asked (1) what I believed to be the most serious issue facing the country, (2) asked if I owned any annuities purchased personally, outside of work, (3) asked if I owned any personal life insurance purchased outside of work, (4) asked my age, and (5) asked my occupation, which I declined to give. At that point the rep thanked me for my time and the call ended.
I received a call on 01-25-09, 6:33 PM from the 215-441-3000 and the caller left a voice mail about my Xbox 360 Service Contract Warranty is about to expire. When I called the number 215-441-3000 an NCO Financial Service greeting responded. This is a collection agency. I hanged up due to I pay all my bills ontime. On 01-29-09, 2:58 PM the same number were calling so I answered the telephone. Come to my surprised, it is Microsoft calling back about my Xbox 360 Service Contract Warranty. To confirm that it is Microsoft, I told them that I faxed some documents concerning this issue. And they reviewed verbatim what I sent in. The question is, why Microsoft is using 215-441-3000 to show on people's Caller ID when they are the one calling. VoIP caller ID masking! This is wrong! I filed a complaint with FTC on this today. These calls are documented on my end in the case that FTC decided to take action.
Gal called asking for "Cory"... Didnt even say hello. When asked what this was in regards too, she hung up.
This # has been showing up on my cell for the last wk, anytime of the day or evening. I do not answer and caller does not leave message.
Very rude and ignorant! Woman named Tarra Reyes, asked for my husband, I said I would give him a message. She thought that me being a "third party could negotiate his credit card payment??? I informed her that "HE" would have to speak to her on this matter. She threatened that I was blatantly refusing to pay the debt.... huh? I am amazed that such an "witch" would be on anyones payroll! Wow... I have reported her and am looking into legal action as she calls up to 3x's a day. Many times before 6:00 am. She refuses to accept a payment unless its what she wants. So I hope that she gets fired! Any payment would be better than none. She is loosing her own company money. Tottally ignorant and very abusive verbally. May she rot in hell.
How do I get them to quit calling? They call 1-2 everyday for the last 5 months.
If you want to stop these calls Write them and refer to FDCRA Fair Debt Credit Repoting Act. Ask them not to call your number and ask for them to write only. if calls do not stop ewport them to your Local Dept. of consumer Affairs and FTC
collection office called sounded like DeNardo ..as usual very weak collectors
they have been colling for months they never tell us how they are looking for and the other day the called a 6:08 am. this is against the law. aj.
A very rude middle aged woman calling about a debt owed by the previous owner of my cell phone number. I told him that I just got this number, and he was calling the wrong person. He said, "Whatever, tell (name) to call us immediately." And they still keep calling!
An extremely rude older woman keeps leaving messages for someone who we don't even know! We took the call once and told her that we didn't know the person, and she replied, "I am sure you do, and we will find him." I called the telephone company to complain, but the process to file charges against these people trying to collect a debt owed by someone else is so difficult to do and would consume too much time so we just ignore the calls when they come in.
Yes, this is a rude bill collector - for which he has no business calling me because I have no outstanding debts. He said my name had been used on an application by an in-law, and he was trying to reach them. He keeps calling several times a day, differnt numbers, and sometimes he leaves his name "BOB". I am sure all of the numbers are connected to the same agency. I have reporterd it the "National NO Call" service which is suppose to elemement tele-marketers etc. and it actually has lessened those calls since I signed up, but I don't know how o get rid of these persistent people.
(215) 442-7094 called me several times , thy never leave a msg.
They call all of the time. I don't answer and they never leave a message. I am going to file a complaint with the FTC...this is harassment.
They are collectors of money for school loans and such...don't answer the phone if you don't want to be contacted.
This number keeps calling my cell phone. They call it almost every 45 minutes starting in the afternoon till 4pm. Dont say what they are calling about when they get my voice mail. Just there first name and number. Who are they? I am at work, and unable to answer their calls. When i called the number back it was some wierd recording. Telling me to enter the first 3 letters of the last name of the person I was trying to reach. ?????
Got a call today from 215-441-3000 but they hung up.
I owe absolutely nothing so not sure how these stalkers got my # ?
This is NCB Management Services. I owe Beneficial Financial some money. I had not paid them in awhile. This is a bill collector attached to a law office but since I am not in the state that he is calling from, they cannot start a lawsuit until the bill is forwarded to a law office in my home state.
Calls repeatedly asking for "Liza." I tell them each and every time there is no one here by that name, never has been. We have had the same phone number for the past 35 years. Rudely, they hang up on me and call again later or the next day . . . and we are on the "do not call" list!
Got a call from this # a few seconds ago...no voice, and someone hung up on me. Reported to the DNC list.
Survey Research Firm -TNS- pHILLY pENN.
Andrew Demarco said would refer me to the hardship debt dept. Bill Young very rude when I offered to pay $300 per month said that was ridiculous and he didn't care if I pay or not it would just cost me legal fees of $2500 in addition to the original debt. His extension was 1414 He left a message after I hung up when he refused to accept my payment and said he gave me 24 hours to resolve the issue
I called trying to make an arrangement of $300 per month. My offer was refused and I was told legal action would be taken against me. Very rude and forcefull advised if my husband can pay on his bank of ammerica bill be can pay mine
this person - April Keller (?)- has called multiple times insisting that Rhonda return her phone call like she promised to do. I finally called her back to let her know she has the wrong phone number and it was like pulling teeth to get her to answer any questions that I asked her - what's your name? what company is this? - her answers were evasive and muttery, like she was intentionally trying to confuse me. I finally asked if this was some type of scam (like they would answer yes if it were) and she finally mentioned this NCB Company. In the course of the phone call she gave me three different names for herself - Mrs. Keller, April, and Amy - and acted like she didn't understand me when I asked her to repeat her name. Very, very frustrating. Whoever she is asking for does not live at my house, so hopefully they'll stop calling like I've asked - but I have a bad feeling that we'll continue to get calls.
This is NCO Financial Group. They are a very NASTY collection agency! I'm guessing the people that work for this company have been really bad people and this is their penance for living such poor, undeserving, evil lives! I can only assume they are married to horrible spouses and spawning grotesque children who will have to work for this company later in life. So sad.
This number called my home phone and left no message. It showed up as TNS....glad i didn't answer it after reading all of the comments!
File a complaint with the Attorney General (state and fed) and then sue them under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Bob Lutz called my mother this morning. She didn't recognize the number, so didn't answer. He left a voice mail for ME, telling me to call him back at 1-800-828-1110 x1433. I haven't lived with my mother in 23 years, so it really sucks that they call up elderly people and try to get fresh info from them. My mother knew better than to answer and says she wouldn't give them any information, anyway.
I don't owe anyone!
PAY YOUR BILLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
automated, James @ packet 8, wants to save me money on my phone bill.
I did mot answer
Very rude. Wanted all kind of information from me but would not give me any information. This was regarding my ex-wife and I have no dealing with her and have been re-married for 9 years. This agency still calls even thought I told them over and over again how to get in contact with my ex-wife and NOT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
cell phone. on DNC registry. calls several times a day when i've been unavailable. no msg. when i answered today, immediate disconnect.
They never leave a message.
Some guy named Bill Young asked me to run a message to my neighbors to call him back at 800-828-1110.
My, NCO has been busy. Here's a couple of nice links illustrating what the FTC thinks of them.
So far, they've tried going after three different names and even said my phone number is listed for a street I don't live on "according to [their] records." I think the next call will be a bit more fun. This time I'll drag out the conversation as long as possible still without giving up any information. The theory is that the longer I keep them occupied the less time they'll have to call other people. I might even read them the FTC story above.
I'm going to tell them that I'm waiting for Ben Bernake to call me with a gov. bailout.
a mr bryant called stating how very important it was i returned his call
Whoever called dialed a wrong number and asked for someone who doesn't live here. debt collection agency.
Called business at 5:20 pm, 20 minutes after office closed. Hangup.
"James" from Packet8 again. They call every month whether you ask them not to or not, and never check the national DNC.
This guy called my best friend for my phone numbers. Telling her to have me call him.
How completely rude can you be!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She has nothing to do with this matter or whatever he is inquiring about....
In four months I have been attacked by three different collection agencies: RCC, Contact America, and now this one, N. C. financial. It's like something out of a horror movie: Just when you think they are finished with you, they mutate into another entity with a new phone number and location. As I have discovered with RCC and Contact America, they have mail drop addresses that seem to all be located in the vicinity of San Francisco, California. Maybe it is all one big company with branches in cities everywhere around the country. This is harassment and should be stopped.
My caller ID on my phone blocked this with the privacy detector; these people had no identification as do Contact America. Whoopee! The operator started to leave a message and it turned out that she was calling from some mortage lending company called ncfinancial.com. Google the name, and you come up with an alphabet soup of company names and people. I checked with the Do Not Call registry; they have a disclaimer that being on the registry will not stop you from getting calls from surveys or telemarketers who do not have registered names. DO NOT CALL should mean just that: DO NOT CALL. If the service will not block unwanted calls, then it is a farce.
Call from Packet 8. As I am looking to move to a new VoIP provided, it appears now that my company will not be asking for a quote from Packet 8.
A "Mr. Venable" called our home phone and left the number 1-800-828-1110 and was VERY suspicious. He outrightly refused to give out the name of the company he worked for and continued to pester me about other members of my family. He claimed he did not work as a marketer, and because his voice sounds white and middle-aged and VERY suspicious, he fits the perfect image of a serial killer profile. He was EXTREMELY rude and tight-lipped and continued to ask the same questions over and over again. His personal, direct extension number he claimed, is x.1859. He has called us twice so far and we will contact private investigators. We recommend you do as well. Good luck incarcerating him.
The phone call I received a from this number was unbelievable! The person who called was completely rude and berating. He asked for Judith and I told him he had the wrong number. Then he accused me of lying to him and he knows who I really am. After that he goes on and on saying next time give the phone to my mom and he will call the same time tomorrow. I hung up on him!
CALLING MY JOB AND ASKING FOR ME BY FIRST AND LAST NAME. VERY RUDE GENTELMAN.
street address not available
Type: Land Line
Probable Residential Phone Number
Keeps calling looking for someone who apparently lives around my area and who i know. i keep telling them that they have the wrong number but keep harassing and never wanting to give their name or information. they even start asking personal questions. it is very annoying to deal with it.
Very Rude wanted to speak with Phyllis, she is recovering from Surgery, I am caring for her, would not give him my name and he said he would find out who I was no matter what so I better tell him. He also said I better tell him how to get in touch with the husband and her or else. Mr. Walker is a very Rude man
They are just normal people doing their jobs, someone has to pick up the trash!
calling me about my sons debt. unable to find a home page for these people also. anybody know where they are located?
if you have been a victim of threatening or abusive collection attempts you may be able to sue for violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. just do a google search for attorneys that handle fair debt collection practices act law and call them to see if they will represent you. the best way to hurt legalized extortionists like this is to sue them.
That bunch keeps calling my FAX machine, gets the tone, launches into some pitch.
THIS NUMBER BELONGS TO NCO GROUP "A BILL COLLECTION COMPANY"
they act as sprint/vonage/xbox/ whatever else
somehow if they act like sprint they know eveything about your account and everything
how many lines you have and what kind service plan you're on
A Women called and asked for someone named Carmen. Told her no one by that name lives here. She then said this is recorded and asked if this is an address I never heared of I said no. She said Thank You and hung up.
Automated call from 'James' at Packet 8 selling 50% savings on VOIP service. Gave option to press number 2 to opt out of future calls.
Shady practrices, using not the company name, but an alias on the caller id? I never answer. They never leave a message.
Left a message to inform me that they were having a problem with shipping my return box for my XBOX 360 (3 rings of death issue). Message told me to call them back at 1-800-4MY-XBOX and we got it all straightened out. I suspect that this is actually a call center phoning on behalf of several companies (including, unfortunately, debt collectors).
Received several calls from Sharreena Tatum 1-800-230-4724 stated that she calling in behalf of Dept of education on a debt. Asked for individual using SSN and address. After research this number - this belongs to NCO Fininicial. This individual is rude and extremely getto. Asking that she remove and discontinue call my home and placed of employment, she stated that she will continue, "just pay your damn debts" - I hang up. What can be done about this very rude company and under educated individuals. PLEASE GIVE SOME SOLUTIONS
A man called me today and ask for me and I told him that Wanda was not in...he left his name as Dennis Roberson at 1 800 828 1110 x1342. He did not state the nature of his call or where he was calling from. I decided to do a reverse look up up of the number that was on my caller ID 215 244 4200 Phila Subrb, PA. when I tried to call the number back it does not state the type of business so I did not try to call back anymore. The man did sound sorta rude and I knew I did not want to talk to him and figured it was a collection agency for some old debt. I will not be calling back and I know when I see that number not to answer.
I've seen posts on another website which says this number is a marketing/surveying company. One poster said she actually spoke with them and it was as result of a recent Verizon purchase. Just coincidentally, I, too, just made a Verizon purchase. So, I'm thinking Verizon (and/or other companies) are employing this company to conduct legitimate marketing surveys. Just a thought.
The name on my caller ID was Rita Kushinsky but when I answered the phone they were calling for a relative of mine and asked they call back at 877-569-2755 and when I asked who they were "Robert" said NCO.
We have received numerous calls from this number, all automated. We have complained to them to no avail. If they bother you, especially if you are on the Do Not Call list, report them to the Feds at www.donotcall.gov
Strangely enough they were right! Had requested warranty support for my XBox 360 and they called to confirm my address. A quick call to 1-800-4MY-XBOX confirmed that they DID need this info.
These uneducated asses keep calling for someone that we have no clue who they are, and they proceed to tell us that "we know who they are calling for" as if!~ They are rude, uneducated, & unprofessional.
Very rude called a place of business asking for an employee. VERY RUDE
caller said she was doing research on behalf of Verizon Wireless
I hope they have poor security in their building because I will be paying them a visit... we'll see how much talking they will do then...

She transferred to a line that no one picked up. I will be contacting my attorney on this not comfortable you do not MANIPULATE 6 YEAR OLD CHILDREN FOR YOUR PERSONAL GAIN
Well, I can top all of these stories. "Greg Fagan" calls me and asks if I have a neighbor by the name of **. I say yes, I do, but I really don't know this neighbor; have never spoke to him. He says it's AN EMERGENCY, very important, take my phone number and name and post it on the door so this guy will call him. I do so, and as I'm posting the note, this neighbor's huge dog attacks me. I call "Greg" back to get their address so I can forward medical bills, etc., and he laughs and says, "Beware of the Dogs!" So I said just two words: Geoffrey Fieger!
I've received several phone calls from "Laurie Toner" who has left msgs on my cell as well as my work vmail. She said "I can't stress how important it is that you return my call". I told her she had the wrong number. I'm unable to make payment plans with anyone due to my recent foreclosure and medical expenses. They are rude and impersonal. Threatening they will contact my family members. This is added stress to my already dire financial situation. Didn't know such unprofessional and harsh people existed. :-(
This is a telemarketing/survey company,(TNS), probably a scam. They have an overseas # as well +44 (0)20 8967 0007. Here is their website www.tnsglobal.com (just in case)you want to send out a complaint and overload their email, or send them a virus.
