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...

call from TNS, female voice. hung up after i responded.
Very rude man called my house a short while ago and manipulated my 6 year son into giving him my other contact number. I called the number and asked him not to do that again contact me on my home number. Very rude talking over me and yelling don''t need that type of behavior so early in the a.m. I hung up and called the main number to get the address of this company so I can send a formal letter of complaint regarding talking to my 6 year old son - who knows he could be a sexual predator - the woman give me this address NCB Management P.O. Box 1099, Langhorn, PA 19047 when I asked her for the General Manager or Manager she give me Gary Greinberg, Supervisor, I told her I did not want a supervior or did I want to talk to the Mr. H the man who pries on children I waned the manager. 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.
I've received over 40 calls in the last few months from various unavailable numbers on my cell phone -never home phone- for Nevada Raven. I've tried every approach. I've asked politely to be taken off the list. I've asked what I had to do, who i had to talk to and was given a number to call. After calling that number I was assured i'd never be called again. I've said I WAS nevada raven and asked what they wanted. When I let on that i wasn't her they threatened that it was against the law to pretend you were someone else on the phone!!! I've sworn, hung up and not answered. Nothing has worked...
We get the calls several times a week including Sunday usually around dinner time and as late as 9 pm on a week night (we are in PST). We usually don't answer, the one time we did they hung up without speaking. Our number is unlisted and we are on the DNC list. I did a reverse lookup and found it is from Hatboro PA. When I searched on TNS Hatboro PA I found this site. Thanks for sharing the info. We need to reconnect the telezapper.
This collection agency hasviolated just about every law there i know what the laws are as i used to work for a collection agency i know how these places work and telling not to call will not get them to go away tthey can find out a lot of info just on the ssn provided it gives them relatives posible relatives neighbors previous neighbors last known place of employement etc. if it is like the agency i worked at they are not interested in you they are trying to be the top collector. By law they can't threaten they can not mis represent and they must indicate they are a debt collector say mini miranda google FDCPA or fair debt collection practices act. Supposedly the only way to get them to stop calling is to send a certified letter. But this usually never works its all a numbers game to them because if your a " good " collector you can collect 25, 000 my advise don't let them scare you they can't hurt you don't give in to them they get commisions from each collection they make. They get off on you being upset, most of these agencies have automatic dialers which means you will recieve calls from the computer generated message then you will recieve calls from the reps. Once they have made what they think is contact they just note the account refuse to pay or payment arrangement or no answer and it gets automatically put back in the dialer to start calling again. Usually a bunch of arrangnt used to be collectors for check n go places or places that eventually ended up in a lawsuit for collecting on bad debt. BY LAW YOU DO NOT PAY ON ANY DEBT THAT IS 7 OR MORE YEARS OLD!!!!!
Rude person calls from this number continually though I have stated that the person they are looking for is not at this number. I have been quizzed as to why they would have this number for somebody that does not live here - as if I would know. I have asked that they not call my home, but the calls continue. I attempted calling back today. After 5 minutes of being told to push 1 for Spanish or to dial the person for whom I am looking's 4 digit extension - all the while I was pushing 0 in hopes of getting assistance. An accented female came on the line. I explained my plight - and was transferred. The guy I was connected to was pleasant enough, and stated that he needed to get set up with his headphones - I started going through why I was calling - lo and behold I was cut off. I did not call back as the call cost me $$. I want them to please quit calling my home.
These fools called yesterday it seems. Don't know what they wanted because...I didn't answer. Thanks to Caller ID and Answering machines. I am not sure whats going on in America, but weird under-ground companies are sprouting up, stealing, or buying old, written off, charged off, paid off, debt accounts. They inflate the price tag by 300% and claim you owe it. True or not, MAKE THEM PROVE IT! Debtors Prison ended 100's of years ago..so you can NEVER go to jail for owing money. Fight back to these guys. There are plenty of websites out there who publish legal documents to help people fight these guys pro se. Forget the No Call List. They likely won't honor it because they are betting you won't call the Attorney General or the police. Kick their butts! -__-
Woke me up an insisted I write the number that I clearly did not write down for my mom.
First off I am not a secretary
and I'm only 16!
Call every night - we don't answer. Wish they would stop.
Got a call from a "Cameron Cannon." Was asking for someone who doesn't live at this address. He very rudely informed the answering machine that the person talked to his supervisor and was not willing to cooperate and that he "hopes that's not the case," because he needs to make a decision by the end of the month "in about 5 days" and it's her name. Are they hitmen?..... =\
This is a market research company that calls you to record whether or not you are home. They sell the data of whether you answer or not at a given time to telemarketers so they know when to call you and when you will likely pick up.
I work in a home with a very elderly lady. One family member lives in another city & county. John Lehman, NCB Management, 877-901-3200 called for J. (married young daughter of employer in another city/county). His tone made me suspicious. My 'shady,devious-guy' radar went up. He asked for personal info & Where is she, is she still living here, etc. I aksed 'What's this regarding?' No respponse. I said, I work here, the family is out. He was forceful & asked probing questions. When I asked the nature of his business & what type of comapny this, he was evasive. He kept trying to get me to give out tidbits on her, "she lives in Lane County, right?" I said, " NICE TRY!" "But I don't give out ANYONE"S personal, for ANY reason. Certainly notto someone so cagey!" "I'm ALSO not giving Jennifer the message, if you don't tell me who you are or what the nature of your business is." Then, "Would you want your daughter or wife giving out YOUR persoanl informtation to some evasive, cagey, stranger over the phone??" That shut him up! He just gave me this 877 no, and hung up. I googled him - found ythis site. WE ALL REALLY NEED TO REPORT THEM TO THE STATE' ATTORNE GENERAL! The better business bureau hasn't any jurisdiction over collections. There are strict guidleines about how often collectors can call, what hrs. of the day, no calling two consecutive days. California has the strictest laws, Most states have some protective statutes. FIND OUT WHAT THEY ARE!! Report thugs like this to the State Attorney General in PA. & wahtever state you're in!!
Several calls from this number have come in to my cell phone at all times of day and night. Called Saturday morning at 8:20 am and on a Tuesday night at 10pm.
The person called asking for a relative and had a very bad attitude. Stated that i was put as a reference, when I know that I never was. There's something not correct about the mannerism of the caller.
Received a call from these bozos at work, very rude to receptionist. I called back (big mistake) and was harrassed by a Robert Giannotti at ext 1448. Both he and his "supervisor" proceeded to tell me what a piece of crap I am and how my life is chaos and out of control. I tried to tell them that I had no idea who they were, that yes I do have a Beneficial account, but that I would need to call Beneficial and verify that my acct has actually been turned over to NCB as I have not received anything by mail. They called me a liar and told me that if I did not pay them money right this second they would send my acct to an attorney and have charges filed against me. Made my stomach upset and turn, I will be calling Beneficial today and only dealing with them. I told NCB to not contact any other number than mine (don't call my work), so hopefully they will adhere to this. We will see.
This company is a joke, full of mean, rude and nasty people not willing to listen to anything.
I received a call at 9:05 CST (after WI legally established calling time). Caller ID says TNS. WILL NOT ANSWER !
Called on Sunday?! Isn't that totally against every law whether you are on the do not call list or not?
I found free letters on www.adviceontime.com that you can mail to this a@@holes to get them to stop calling you. They also have an article on how to deal with them. Fight back, they have to respect your legal rights.
called at dinnertime, didn't pick up, didn't leave msg. surprised to have so easily found it on the 'net.
Hello, do I have I'm representing National City Bank --- would like to take 20 minutes of your time for a survey --- (I refused) --- Wanted to know when he could call back, wanted another number (non-cellular) to call (I refused both)--- I requested my name and number be expunged from their records.
My husband got a number of collection calls on his Cp from NCO financial, he asked that I take care of it. I called 215-441-3000 and ask to resolve this matter, they cannot find that we owe money, they used the same cell # they been calling and our socials and nothing came up. I told them they shoud get their shit together before calling asking people for money. Tyrone said "bitch I not asking you for any money" and hangs up the phone.
What is up with this company?? Does anyone know? the calls still continue but when you call them they have no records of you.
Some Guy by the name of James Bradshaw left a message and said that it was very important that I returned his call. He left an 800 number and his extension. He said that he is trying to not have to call my job, well the jokes on him. I don't have a job. I am not sure who he represents.
I just received a voice mail from these guys. The first half was so choppy I couldn't make out a word. The second half was a request for me to call back a number - different from the one calling. A "reference no." was provided. I don't owe anyone in this world a cent (other than my mortgage, which has been deducted automatically like clockwork from my bank account for 15 years) so I've no idea what this bunch is up to. But if I've learned anything in in life, it is don't bother with 1-800 nos. that call with urgent requests. The more urgent the request, the greater the scam, and if they really have to tell you something, they can slap a 41-cent stamp on it and send it the old fashioned way.
TNS calling to do a survey on recent customer service call to Verizon Wireless. Harmless.
Called my cell at 5am. Didn't leave a message. I thought it was a friend in Philadelphia, so I called back. Realized it was a place of business and pressed 0 to speak to an operator:
ME: Hi, I received a missed call with no message. What company is this?
THEM: NCB Management. What's your telephone number?
ME: I'm sorry, what did you say?
THEM: WHAT IS THE TELEPHONE NUMBER THAT YOU GOT THE CALL ON??!!! (in a scary, rude voice)
ME: No, what kind of company is this?
THEM: NCB MANAGEMENT. GIVE ME THE TELEPHONE NUMBER YOU GOT THE CALL ON!!
ME: No, thank you.
Its NCB Management, they are a collection agency, or so they say
These guys called me a bunch of times in the past, I actually found this site using google. I figured I'd run down my caller ID and see who it was. I tried calling this number back and demanding why they called me, these people (who barely speak English) told me they "do not have access to my file", so I demanded again to find information on why they are calling me, this lady hung up. I called back (again) and they removed me from their list and haven't received a call from them again.. until a couple months ago. I know about the lawsuits involved in this NCO company and from the responses I have seen here, this collection agency is horrible! Just pay your debt to the rightful company you owe it to, NOT THEM.
While I agree that people should pay back debts, there are times in life where that is just not possible. Things turn sour, investments go bad, and you are stuck trying to survive. That is where myself and my husband are. We have entered into debt settlement with a company, but so far nobody has settled. We continue to get multiple daily calls from this company, some automated, as well as regular and automated calls from other companies. We are doing all we can, but it seems to not be good enough for them!
And to those who make rude comments or talk about how horrible we are, I really hope that you never land in a situation like I am. It is not fun, it is not great, and it is nothing to be proud of, but life happens. But, if you ever do fall into this situation, I hope that people will be more compassionate to you then you are to us.
Deprive them of their "fun". Ditch your voice mail and simply get Caller ID; Let the phone ring and ring until they give up/and or/ send your account somewhere else. Those bottom feeders are looking for someone who cares. Pretend you don't and they might leave you alone for a while. At least you don't have to listen to obnoxious voice mail messages. At some point, you may be served papers for court. Show up. They may not and you'll win on default. Getting to be so many of us now, though, we'll all start falling through the cracks eventually. Bring it on! Won't be enough court rooms to process it all. Let's hear it for recession. And if we also don't pay as well as not acknowledge, their existence, they'll go under in time.
Started calling our house. How the hell do these people get our phone numbers?
This number has called for months Apparetly looking to collect a debt from my sister. Yesterday they called very earily 4 or 6 am, Picked Up no responce. At 8:30 am same day they called I "talked" to the guy on the phone Tryed to explain that My sister hasn't lived here in years Guy interrupted me 4 times. I told him as politly as I could "shut up" he yelled at me for a few minutes and then hung up. Found this site at 10:30am called some numbers was told they couldn't transfer me, I hung up. Called another number and was transfer to a manager who claimed to take my number off there List.
All numbers that aren't 1-800 seemed to be blocked from call backs, you get a area code error or a disconection message.
I receive several calls a day from a Brian Anderson. Today I received two calls about 20 minutes apart from two different men both claiming to be "Brian Anderson". This time each man said it was his third message. As many people have already commented here, I can barely understand what the guy is saying but his tone is threatening. He is asking for someone who no longer lives here and has not lived here for several years. As I mentioned, since I can't understand what he is saying, I can't tell if his calls are supposed to be about a legal issue, a credit issue, or what. Either way, he is calling MY house and I'M not involved in any legal matters, nor do I owe anyone any money. My phone usually starts ringing shortly after 8 a.m. and it never ends until a few minutes before 9 p.m.; and yes, even on Saturdays and Sundays. I returned the alleged Brian Anderson's call tonight and got a voice mail. I left a message stating that I wanted the calls to my home to stop. We'll see what happens.....
Rude, rude, rude!
This company is extremely rude. I called them back (big mistake) and spoke to a John Lehman. He asked a few questions...am I employed, what do I do, can I pay, etc. I explained the situation to him and he said hang on a second, "I'm going to check one more page in your file to see how bad this can get." Also claims to have sent 3 letters, one stating legal papers were being filled in my county. I explained I only received two letters and that wasn't one of them. He put me on hold and blind transferred me to his supervisor Mr. Spector. Mr Spector is very rude. He started talking over me, wouldn't let me finish a sentence, and yelling. He stated that I had told Mr. Lehman I didn't have a checking account and as I was explaining to Mr Spector, John didn't ask me anything about a checking account. He stated that he is one of our top specialist that dots the i's and crosses the t's and I did talk about a checking account. Then he gives me the line "I'm going to break you down row by row." I asked if he was threatening me and he said take it like you want to. Then started yelling again and hung up on me.
I called back and asked to speak to the President of the company. The receptionist said she didn't know who that was and wanted to transfer me to a supervisor. I asked if it was someone higher up than Mr. Spector and she said yes. Transferred me to a Marie Russo, got her voice mail and left a message.
I did find on the web the President is Rick Silver and Chairman is Brett Silver.
Keeps leaving automated message with detailed information on my debt, which I am already taking care of. The message says, "Please hang up or disconnect if not Liz", but then keeps going. What if they had the wrong number? Haven't dealt with a person yet. Does anyone know which company they are collecting on?
I recieved this number on my cell phone. They said they are Nextel and was returning my call. I had been speaking with Nextel and was disconnected. However on the second call, I was disconnected so I just hit redial...The call was answered NCO Financial and placed me on hold. I believe somehow NCO and Nextel are sharing info!!
Man asking for confirmation on a neighbor, gave me a name and address. I refused to help him, he wouldnt say why he was asking. The address he gave me doesnt exist, pretty shady.
asked for someone we had never heard of. became rude when we said they had the wrong number. told us this person had used our number as a "relative". they insisted we must know this person. finally seemed to accept we had never heard the name before. did not say what they wanted. very rude.
Calls from 800-828-1110 also.
Is a collection agency, I am sure.
Called where I work asking for an employee.
The emplyee wasn't in the office, so I told the caller that. Then she started asking personal questions about the employee and their work habits and such. I just told them it was against the law for me to answer their questions and for them to ask the questions. Then I hung up. I will report this under 800-828-1110 also.
I just recieved to call from NCO but a different phone # 2532486405. No message, no answer. After reading these posts I'll be ready next time.
We had our phone disconnected and then reconneted a few weeks later with new phone number. Somehow they tracked down my best friend who lives in Alaska and tried to tell her they needed to reach my husband. She refused to give them any info but did call me to let me know about the call.
Calling my sister in law??
Called because of a dent that was owed. He spoke to my receptionist and had her in tears. They have spken to my mom whom is dying with cancer right now and had her in tears scaring her for gods sake. I have tried to work with these people and they refuse. This is a medical bill and not plastic ... Learner my lesson there .. What can be done when they continuously call over and over.
Idiot called on CHristmas Eve at 9am... got my answering machine and while it was recording it sounded as if he was hitting on a co-worker. It sounded like "I see you looking over here at me"
and then he hung up
He called back 3 minutes later and this time hung up on my machine.
I have 2 of these "market research" companies consistantly calling-We just wont answer, maybe evetually they will get thge hint! Damn STALKERS get a life!
So, this number is calling where I work and asking for someone, like they are one of our vendors...but they aren't. They are NCO and are scum bag chits that try to scam you into paying a debt that isn't yours. They also threaten and says they "know" where you live. Its a bit crazy. They do not believe it when you tell them you have no idea what they are talking about.
I hope they show up where I work cause I will delight in calling the cops to take them away.
I hope they show up where I live , as they threatend to do, because that is another reason for me to have one of them arrested. Bring it on azzholes. They threatened me over something that isn't even mine, like a stalker "I'm watching you, I know where you live", so bring it on!!! and watch their azz get jailed.
Got my cell number
Someone called Greg left message for a Peter Fom (? - last named unintelligible)- nobody by that name at my number. I see that they are a collection agency.
Keep receiving calls from this numver , leaving messages I can barely understand. The last 1 was the best, the message said my portfolleo was about to be sold. Dont even have 1. These people really need to get lives, I would like to be able to call them at home 3 or 4 times a day for no reason.
This "Brian Anderson"? leaves a message every day, sometimes two for someone who doesn't have this phone number. He even called a neighbor of mine who called me at work. I have no dealings with this joker. I have reported this number to the FCC.
This person called the house 5 times each time calling back after I hung up on him. He was VERY RUDE. When I asked to talk to his supervisor he hung up on me.
A man called, not giving his name or company identity and just started asking for and asking questions about a former employee of five years ago. Told the guy that the person he is inquiring about is not longer here and to have a nice day. Strange!
How DO they get phone numbers of debtors' relatives/ past landlords etc...
its like BIG BROTHER
Because of my sisters DEBT...somehow they find MY number & call me.
MAYBE if all you peoole who say they are rude just STOp paying with plastic when you have NO money to cover it...these companies wouldnt even be in business!!! This is BS I ahve to deal with this because a relative spends what she doesnt have!!!
ID unavailable, No Message, No Idea... If they can't leave a message then I'm pretty sure I don't care too much about whatever they would have had to say.
The "supervisor" wouldn't even give me my accout number. I asked him over and over again. He threatened to charge the amount I owe to 2 of my other credit cards...without my permission!!
Some guy who gave the name of Mr. Flemming wanted my daughter to call him back at his business phone (800) 828-1112 ext 1774. I asked if this was a bill collection agency and he said that it was not. I said that if this was a bill collection agency calling my daughter I was not going to get involved and did not want to receive any more calls. My daughter moved away years ago. He was polite, but not truthful in telling me that he was calling from a bill collection agency.
Have no idea who they are.....I have no unpaid bills....no debt collection....period.
They called at 8:38 pm on Friday night...caller ID "unknown name"...no message on answering machine. I will report this to MO Attorney General.
Several calls today, I did not answer.
You have to stay on the line long enough & verify to them wrong #........or they will keep calling till there proven otherwise.
i owe 10,000 dollars and dont wanna pay....i cant believe these people have the nerve to call me.
I heard if you pay back the money you steal you dont get collection calls anymore.....hmm....imagine that.
Didn't answer hit google and found you guys! This is awesome - will pass along this web site
Unsolicited call from Packet-8
Automated message about saving money on our monthly phone bill.
Got a call yesterday from someone asking for "Joel Mylastname". Told them they had the wrong number, and was about to hang up when they kept asking for him, where he was at, how could they get a hold of him, etc. I thought it was just a wrong number, as they didn't identify themselves or their company, and they asked me several times about about this "Joel" guy and asked to speak to my family about him, implying that we were hiding stuff from them. I kept asking who was calling and she would dodge my question, finally telling me her name was "Theresa" and she needed to talk to this Joel guy. She asked me if this was "Yourlasntname's residence?" and why this guy was using my address if we didn't know him? That made me VERY concerned and all she said in a very rude tone was "Look, this is federal business." and hung up shortly after. I didn't know who it was until I called the number back, which turned out to be NCO, and you can only talk to someone if you know their last name/ext. number.
damn I hope they call back!!! Now that I know who it is I will tell them what I really think and record their conversation.
Received a call from this number in response to letter to Microsoft's legal department regarding defective xbox 360 and numerous failed repair attempts. It appears that Microsoft has engaged NCO to run interference and thwart requests for refunds.
They hung up.
it is always a recorded message asking for an unknown person. That is, they think someone else has this number. They do ask for a return call & they say that to listen to the message is admittance to being-this person. To hang up tells them we are not the person they are looking for. We are seldom home when these calls come in so our answering machine picks up saying we are NOT who there are looking for. I suppose because our machine receives the call they are encouraged, and call daily, including weekends. They are not listening to the information our name on the message, nor our hanging up has stopped this harassment
i did not answer and no message
A woman called asking for "Shane" and when I politely told her she had the wrong number (which she did)she proceeded to become VERY abusive and belligerent. She accused me of not giving her the info she was entitled to and threatened "to take action" if I did not pass her message on to "Shane". I hung up as soon as she started YELLING at me!
these people keep calling me about money i owe on a credit card. i called and explained to the guy that i am 8 months pregnant, very high risk pregnancy, and am currently not working. i told him after the baby is born and i am back to work i would gladly start making payments.
in a very rude tone he said "when was the last time you think you made a payment?".
so i got rude right back and told him "i don't give a shit, right now i am in a bad place, i will make payments when i am back to work".
so he threatened legal action by telling me they would contact the county i lived in said said "you can pay that way and then you'll care!" and the asshole hung up on me!
this was a couple weeks ago and because of my high risk pregnancy i have been ignoring their phone calls yet they call 2-3x every monday-saturday.
Although the caller ID Said "Unknown Name", it had the number, and a Paul Rinheart left this message (for my mother who's 84): "Yeah, Jessie, this is Paul Rineheart. Return my call at-------." Then he abruptly hung up. If I ever talk to this ass-wipe, he won't like what I have to say!

EXTREEMLY RUDE! Called my place of business and asked for a person that was not in the office. Sounded like he was trying to "musscle" the person on the phone, my husband. Threatened that he had our address.
Dianne: his name is Robert Gianadi. Thinks he's part of the mafia, my husband called him on it. x1448
Very Rude people offered to pay what I can afford right now. It really doesn't matter to them they just want all the money right now no matter how they can get it. I put them on ignore.
Repeatedly calling for a Sandra Miller. I told them They have the wrong number and they've called back numerous time. They were very rude and asked me to give her a message I said "I would if I knew who she was!" I called them and told them to take my number out of the system. They called back the next day harassing me looking for "Sandra". It's getting ridiculous.
Ever wonder where drug addicts, prison parolees, and newly released mental patients go? They become debt collectors....oh.....that's why they are BRAIN DEAD DIRTBAGS!
They just called and said they are from Carol Adams Family opinion
Go to www.budhibbs.com or lawcash.com/attorney/3201/nco-financial-services-lawsuit.asp they are getting sued by the minute ha ha losers collect on old accounts don't even have the right info SCAM ARTISTS!!!
Caller ID says Hatboro, PA
I just called and told these people to remove my number from the call list. They said they will but we will see if that happens. They love to call before 10AM, especially on weekends.
I know people who worked for this company. They are minimum wage workers and are required to complete so many surveys to keep their job.
Caller ID says it's from Hatboro, Pa. Call came at 6:30PM. I didn't bother answering the call.
They called my house yesterday and left a message saying please hold....that is all it said
Called my cell phone - a 248 area code # - at 6:30pm Eastern Time. I did not answer, they did not leave a message.
after just telling these jerks SATURDAY, not to call here it is Monday and they are calling again.
I'm a kid and i told them they had the wrong number (which they did) i have my own line and the man told me my adress and everything i told him that he was not being professional and that i wanted to speak to a manager he yelled at me and said i was not professonal and then kept yelling at me . i tried to call back and go the run around. Its a little scary to have these people yelling at you and tewlling you they know where you live. any advice? i want it to stop.
Someone called from this number wanting to know if so and so (don't want to say name) lived next door to me. I told her I did not know what the neighbor's name was. She asked that I take her number and give it to her when I see her. I wrote it down and went next door to give it to her as a woman that lives across the street from us got a call from this same person wanting them to to go get her. I think this is really strange.

These people from this company have been harassing me for a while now trying to get a hold of my father who I repeatedly have told I haven't spoken with for years. The last time a lady called me she started yelling at me when I told her I could NOT deliever a message to him. Very rude people who wont leave me alone!!
8:25 tonight, no voicemail.
this guy is an idiot. wanted to talk to my brother, so he called my cell phone. So i had some fun with the man, by completely wasting five minutes of his day! you should join in on this fun when any telemarketer calls!
I picked up the phone and there was a recording that said this is not a solication call someone will be right with you so I hung up.
Had to add this one. Got another call tonight (they call at least 5 times a day and never leave a message). Came home tonight and there is a MESSAGE ON MY ANSWERING MACHINE: "This is Christopher, pick up" (like he's a friend); "Hello, Cris? (NOT my full name)" "PICK UP THE PHONE BECAUSE I KNOW YOU ARE LISTENING BECAUSE IT'S NOT AN ANSWERING MACHINE" (yelling). "HELLO? HELLO?"
These people are complete morons. HE IS LEAVING A MESSAGE ON A MACHINE TELLING ME TO PICK UP BECAUSE HE KNOWS IT'S NOT A MACHINE. Guess he didn't hear the "sorry we can't come to the phone right now....BEEP". Idiot.
A lady called me for Maria H., who was a former tenant of mine 10 years ago. My address and tel. number have changed. Did not realise this was a collection agency.
This Jerk has called me 20+ times asking if there is a Hy Chung. I respond by telling him no but he persists that he needs to speak with Hy Chung (this jackass just keeps saying the same name over and over everytime I explain that there is no one by that name here). Anyway, I've had enough of this harassment so I told him that if he calls back, I will legally pursue this... it didnt seem to bother him as he once again said "I need to speak with Hy Chung". I will definately find some info on how to battle this harassment as no one should have to endure this bullshit... and when he calls next time, I will politely tell him to hold on one second, and just let the phone stay off the hook... check back in about 15-20 min and if he's still there, tell him to hold on again... then repeat the steps one and two till he hangs up.
Called my cell phone 5 times in 2 weeks haven't answered it yet. Checking with bbb and my lawyer about this since it cost me money, cell phone air time, and its a federal violation to charge someone money to have to listen to something they never asked for. See if its worth my time to answer just so I can sue them. Maybe then they will get the message.
Calling 3-4 times a day...no message...very annoying...I don't think this national no call list thing works very well; I registered, re-registered, and I still get tons of marketing calls.
Scum-bag bottom feeders ought to get a decent job.. I demand a "cease and desist". and stop leaving me messages. I always pay my just debts...
Very rude and tretining gentelmen by the name of Bryan
This number calls daily always at night-this time on a Sunday at 7:24 pm. I'm on the DNC list and pay for a private number through the phone company!
Comes on caller ID as TNS.
Want it to stop!
They called our main number at work and asked to speak with someone from the IT department. Receptionist dumped them in my voicemail and they left a 24 second voicemail of someone typing on a computer.
"michael mann" called my number and left a message. He asked to speak with someone with a similar sounding name as mine. the number he left for me to call was different than the 2154428300 that showed up on my caller ID. I think they are just picking straws and hoping they get the person they are looking for!
I don't have an X-box; I don't have Vonage; I don't have Sprint, and my Penney's is paid. I have NO idea why they are calling. I had some fun with them today....the phone rang and I picked it up in a dead silent room and didn't say anything. The stupid bi**h kept SCREAMING my name and "HELLO? HELLO? SPEAK UP, (NAME), SPEAK UP (NAME), I CAN'T HEAR YOU, HELLO HELLO HELLO" for a solid minute. She finally hung up.
LEAVE ME ALONE
They better stop calling. My name is not Natasha
Have received several calls from 215-441-3000. Traced the number to what appears to be a collections agency in Pennsylvania. Web address is as follows: www.ncogroup.com
We have stopped answering the phone when their number pops up, but it would seem our number use to belong to someone by the name of Gary or Norma.
Did not answer this call. I am on the DNC list. Have received calls from them before......
Called my cell phone and asked for Kenneth....I don't know Kenneth. Told them they got the wrong number and then they said this was recorded for "quality assurance."
What disgusting people they are.
My call was received Aug. 14. It was a guy asking survey questions regarding a call I had made to Verizon. The name on my caller ID was TNS.
She ask for someone who doesn't even live here.
If a collection agency which doesn't involve you, get an address on them, send a certified return receipt letter requesting they stop their phone calls. If they continue send a complaint with copy of certified letter and it's return receipt to your Attorney General's Office for better action.
They collect student loan debts and info on student loan debts. If you don't owe, they might be trying to collect info on someone who does. Just tell them "never to call this number again" and by law they are not supposed to. If you don't say it, they will keep calling. If you say it and they keep calling, report them. It's illegal!
Said call is from TNS.
Who are they & what do they want?
scam collection agents, dont pay them! get credit report to see date,owed,etc they collect on outdated crap and it stays on your credit report anyway.keep your cash and invest in a cd!
no message, just calls ... they obviously can't leave a message
Just placed them on my reject call list. Thanks for the info.
I've received 1 call a day for about 4 days now. If I don't know a number I generally don't answer it. Anyhow, no message is being left? I guess we'll see what they want if the calls continue.
This is NCB Management Services, Inc. a PA based bill collecter. They called looking for my ex, said this number had been given to them as a contact number. Not likely. They were polite and hung up after I said we had been divorced 4 years and I had no idea where she was.
THEY CALL ME 16-20 CALLS A DAY
Guy by the name of Paul. Left message, demanding return call-- an 800 number, with about a 20-digit extension.
A few months ago someone whose voice was so muffled that I was unable to tell whether he was "William Williams" or if he was calling for Wm Wms left many messages with a number. Attempting to return the call, the extension answering device was overflowing and I couldn't get a person on the line. After numerous calls, I finally got a person who became belligerent and would not accept that I do not know nor have ever known Wm Wms nor his whereabouts. He was really nasty. Then another call came from 215.244.4200 and the female seemed to accept what I told her. We'll see. I have no outstandout debts and certainly none in collections. Some jerk falsely used my phone number and set this whole thing in motion!
I *believe* this was M$. They owe me some live points, and promised a call about it this week. However, no message was left. I certainly don't owe anything, so I have no creditors to speak of. Will try back tomorrow.
Recieved call at 1111am on 29 Jul, no message.
Left NO message called @ 6:59 pm on a saturday; called the number back MUCH later Saturday evening and it claimed to be a "Law Office"
It was a recorded message demanding that I give a return phone number. (Uh, what numberr did they just call?) They have called numerous times in the last week. Sometimes more than twice a day. I will not give these people any satisfaction!!!!
Received msg in threating tone from "Mr. Shapiro". "This is not a marketing call. You are to call 8884756741 immediately"
Well, so far I've been making student loan payments with NCO. From what I've read here, I'm a little concerned now. I've gotten the calls but there's no answer. Don't know why I would receive collection calls in the first place. Been making payments on time.
some whore of a woman called me from this number asking for my sister. I told them not to call me back. She became belligerant. I had a good time with her and took out all of my day's frustrations. Anyway, I filed a complaint online with the FTC. Everyone here should do the same. the FTC will eventually fine them. Hahaha.
Call back this number
An un-named man left a message on my voicemail saying he was from NCO and was trying to "track down" L.L.G., my sister-in-law, because she had "skipped out". He told us to call his office at 800-611-0641. I thought this was strange because if he was looking for her, why not look in the phonebook - she's listed! I called her and told her about the message. She called the 800 number and a man told her she owed money on a credit card from 1999. She told him she had never had a credit card. Her husband got on the phone and tried to ask him questions but he was not cooperative. The whole incident is very suspicious!!!
no sound for 2 minutes then a disconnect click.
i just received a call from 215-442-7094. and the gilr told me she was calling from ABC a local tv station, when i asked for a manager, she put the phone down and i heard someone in the back laughing and say tell her your calling from Verizon wireless which happens to be my cell service.
automated message stating they are collecting a debt, and by accepting this call after 3 seconds i acknowlege i am who the automated caller is calling--- this is BS because its an answering machine THE AUTOMATED CALL left a message on---
YEA I KNO ITS A COLLECTION AGENCY BECAUSE I OWE ALOT OF MONEY TO PPL..LOLZ BUT DONT ANSWER IF U DONT WANNA HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THEIR RUDE ASS ATTITUDE. THEY ACT LIKE THEY GETTIN THE MONEY IN THEIR HANDS. THIS PEOPLE ARE RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL TO EVERYONE THEY CALL
Showed up on my at&t bill as an automatic callback on 7/1/07 at 914pm. Cost me 1.99 and no one here remembers the call. I am on DNC registry.
I have received several calls from this number and have not been home to answer the calls. They have yet to leave a message.
showed up as TNS - when I answered, no one there, then hang up & dial tone. I am on DNC list.
We, too, are on the DNC list.
Received call at 8:03pm CST. Did not answer.
I spoke with someone today. They are a group the surveys customers on their satisfaction with a company. In my particular case, I had a problem with my cell phone and called customer service. This number called me back to rate that experience.
NCO FIN Group conducts non legal collections activity. Record all conversations with them and read up on the FDCPA. Notify them that you want itemized bill and verification of debt. do not give bank or credit card info to them.
Get several a day. Caller ID says "Phila suburbs". I never answer
Just got a call from this number. Its Xbox Support. They left a message to tell me my 360 is repaired and in the mail.
called at 2:01pm central and hung up
2 calls today from this number. Didn't answer, thankfully. Now I know better.
Dial the number back and ask for Frank at extension 1320 - he's a jerk and deserves whatever hard time you can give him
Got a call and was hung up on when I answered. I did as suggested and sent a nutcase email to the addy listed here.
the customer rep who answer started getting nasty with me after i told him to stop calling my house no. the DO NOT CALL registry is a piece of shit i am getting more calls everyday now after signing on DNC registry than before
i been receiving call from this number call national creditors for 1 1/2 yrs since I have lived at my address they dont seem to understand the concept NOT to call when i tell them to and that no one by that "NAME" lives here ever. then they get nasty rude obnoxious insulting etc. I hope they get fined and lose their business soon
re:215-442-8300 rec'd call for archie russel, said did,'t even know a archie russel,he said he did'nt make it up out of thin air, said I still did'nt know anyone by that name and hung up...hope they do not call again, if they do, I will contact phone company with complaint due to info on this web site. these people are bottom feeders....
This number called my cell. Not sure who or what it was.
Called on 06/22 at 7:23 pm. Didn't answer but I am waiting for the next time.
This number called me - did not leave a message.
I've just started receiving calls from this number. Daily. First two phone calls I actually did attempt to call, however, I could barely hear the person's name or what it was about. Most recently a "Patricia Fardo" tried calling. Like many, I don't have any debt that I haven't already taken care of, or am in the process of paying off. Regarding a comment I just read... paying through Western Union seems really strange. I would never make big payments through WU!! Might be a scam!
female caller looking for someone who had a different social security number, different address, different age, different everything. I am on the do not call list but NCO Group doesn't care.
Called couple times 6-15-2007 left no messages
Started with a recording that they wanted to sell me some kind of "internet business opportunity" or something. Then they asked me to stay on the line and press a code to speak to an operator. So I did, and asked the woman who she worked for, and she said she didn't know (yeah, right). Reported to the do-not-call list.
i do not know who is....
when i pick up the call...
it sounds like some kind of readio.
Left message on machine, said "Name is Calvin", please call me and gave number twice. Guy talked unclear - sounded older and I want to know how he got our number. And why??
PLEASE CALL ME, NAME IS cALVIN
Asked me to do a survey about computers and Servers. Offered a "financial incentive" for my participation. After about 7 mins. and about a dozen questions the lady told me that the "quota was full for this particul;ar type of response" (????). She then hung up. Pretty bad. Most reputable research companies will pay for your responses without regard to a quota or some such nonsense. My advice?...don't answer the call.
Calls from (215)675-1573 are from a collector attempting to get you to settle your student loan. Over 20 years ago! They are not familiar with law that were applicable at that time (re-payments terms were diff.). Beware - deal with the Dept. of Education only -
Just got a call from this number demanding that I act like an adult and pick up the phone and return the call. Very rude when they left the voice message on my cell phone. I will not be answering calls from them.....
They have called daily for the past month, sometimes twice a day. I believe this is the same company that called about a year ago and I told them not to call again. When you do talk to them, they are nasty.
This phone number appeared on my cell phone, but I did not answer because numbers that i don't recognize i don't answer. I figure that is the best technique if is important they'll leave a message right? But what i don't quite understand is the fact that nothing can be done to stop this stupid people that don't have anything better to do (get a life).
NCO Financial calling MY CELL PHONE. I warned em.
This company keeps calling using both numbers - want me to postdate a check to them for a Penney's account. Very rude - I told them I would go to Penney's myself and make the payment at the store - not over the phone to them! I am tired of their early morning calls at 7:45 AM seven days a week!

Continued from above.....
Jason Platts says his family can't thank Western New York enough for their help and calls the night an Amber Alert was issued when his child was kidnapped.
The case began at 7:45 Monday evening, Serenity's mother says a grandmother was watching the four-year-old girl in the family's home on Tremont Street when a former family friend, David Grover, came into the house to use the bathroom. When the grandmother returned to the room, she says both Serenity and Grover had disappeared.
Police launched a massive search, even issuing an Amber Alert to try to find David Grover and Serenity Platts. Around 12:15am Tuesday a car pulled up and dropped the girl off at her house.
A short time later Grover was taken into custody by police on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst.
Is this an NCO Collector?
Bail Reduced For Kidnapping Suspect
Posted by: Claudine Ewing, Reporter
Created: 4/2/2007 8:48 PM
Updated: 4/7/2007 6:18 PM
It was $200,000 but now, bail for David Grover is $20,000. He's the man charged with kidnapping a four year old North Tonawanda girl earlier this week.
2 On Your Side has obtained a copy of David Grover's statement to police. In it, he details why he went to the child's home and how she ended up in his car for four hours.
Grover has been arraigned in North Tonawanda on charges related to the Monday night abduction of four year old Serenity Platts. Judge William Lewis set bail at $200,000.
The little girl was taken from her home shorlty before 8:00 pm and dropped off nearly four hours later. Authorities say there was no sign that the child was physically abused. Still, no motive for the kidnapping has been released.
Left a message stating that this was a "confidential message" for Leander (ie, they want to get paid). Not entirely sure how they associated this number with said person. Our last names are similar yet now the same. I guess doing collections is like going to church, lot of praying and hoping that there's some meaning to it all in the end.
first time I have gotten this call, it showed up TNS didn't answer, stopped after 3 rings.
called 4/27/07, did not answer.
Someone from this number called this morning at 8:30am and it sounded like a collector message, but we don't have anything in collections. "Please hold for the next representative, it is very important that we speak with you" was the message. I tried to call the number back and it said it had been disconnected. I was asleep so it was on my answering machine when I got up. Who knows.

NCO Financial calling to collect a debt. Call Thomas Johnson at 888-786-7626
These people call about 15 times everyday. They leave short ugly messages. One this evening was more like a threat out of a Horror Movie. These guys are sick and perverted, they really should get a new act.
The tactics used are old and boring, maybe a cleaning job at the zoo would better suit their intellect. DO NOT give these people ANY of your information, and DO NOT allow them to shock you!
They keep calling me, saying that I owe Sprint money. After several calls explaining that I do not owe them money they still wanted me to pay them $100+ dollars. I contacted Sprint about this matter. After checking the lady ran my social and said there was no out standing bill for me. I had closed my account with Sprint April of 2006. They lady I spoke to at Sprint said they had never turned me into any collection agency because my account was paid and they actual sent $1.93 refund. If I owed Sprint money I think would have been able to find a past due balance.
Read messages and found that both "unknown numbers" calling here are from the same NCO Corp. Run in with them nearly 3 years ago at different numbers. They accused me of being someone I'm not. They had an SS# which wasn't mine and actually threatened to dunn SS Disability payments for the person they named. Nasty, nasty folks. Tried to reach SSI to tell them the named person might be a target and they finally stopped calling. Started again on April 13 and have already called 6 times, early morning until late at night. Twice already today. How to stop this?
Just recieved a call from them. It's 12:00 pm. 4/15/2007. They asked me if I did a survey at a mall and what did I do a survey about and hung up. They knew my name before messing it up with other names like gregory and then saying my name without me correcting. TNS is on my caller ID.
got a call about a "bak survey". Checked the number online, lots of instances of people saying it was suveys for things, though i find it interesting that according to yellowpages.com its registered to verizon in philadelphia. Would a legit company call people from a cell phone? Probably not.
NEVER GIVE A DEBT COLLECTOR YOUR BANKING OR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION. MAKE THEM VALIDATE THEIR CLAIMS.
NCO is so bad, that in 2003, they have been sued 40 times for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). These suits are usually filed when consumers are abused in violation of state and federal debt collection laws.
NCO is a money-mill, gobbling up competitors, buying portfolios of old debts for pennies, and expanding globally. These money-beggars are making their bottom-line profits at the expense and abuse of consumers.
One wonders how many lawsuits are NOT being filed because consumers do not know their rights or that NCO CAN be held accountable for their illegal debt collection practices.
ONE OF AMERICA'S WORST COLLECTION AGENCYS!
Do not let NCO's under-trained, uneducated and FDCPA lacking debt-collectors make a paycheck at your expense.

"Steve Amber" called today and asked for my wife. She said she does not deal with the finances and would pass the message to me. Steve then asked if she "really" knew where I was (I was at work). He implied I might be doing something she doesn't know and then questioned her as to wether we were separated. I returned the call and was treated even worse. I am in a payment program to pay my credit card debts left over from a difficult year a while back. Anyway, I tried to give them the information and they threatened to sue. I immediately called my attorney who assures me they are just a collector. They CANNOT SUE. IF they really wanted to sue, they would have to hire a lawyer in your state. So if they threaten you...just laugh it off!
TNS on the caller id. No message
NC O Group Inc. Didn't answer, just put them in my "Do Not Call" registry.
The called saying they were trying to collect past due telephone bill money. I told them I didn't have an account and would like to dispute, they said they would remove me from their list.
This number has called me once a day for the last three days. I don't answer and they don't leave a message.
Call from NCO financial - Kevin
We've received 4 calls in the past 4 or 5 days each time leaving a message - we didn't pick it up. Just like the other comments, they want us to call them back but don't say who they are or what it is concerning.
received several calls in 2 weeks, sometimes twice a day. Left messages saying that is was "not a sales call" and to call back immediately. phone number left to call back was 1-877-847-1486, but the caller id numbers were 215-111-1111, and 215-675-1573. I never answered any of the calls
This # is NCO Financial. They keep telling me that they are collecting a past due phone bill. The so called bill has been paid- I even asked mthem if they want me to send in a copy of the check. They told me it didn't matter - the bill would remain unpaid until I paid them. No way am I paying a bill twice.
they called from 877-337-2418 claiming a walmart credit card was 4 months overdue. i don't have a walmart card and told them. each person i talked to transferred me to someone else who asked for the $185, saying they would remove the late charges if i just paid the original balance. after several con artists begging for money and me telling them i wasn't going to work, i hung up. and then they called back from 215-441-3000. if you get a call from either of these numbers, do not answer because it's just another con artist with a scam. and remember, never give out information over the phone unless you call a legit number from the phone book or a bill.
Called my mom looking for me. I returned call and spoke to John Brown of NCB, gave him my ph#. He continued to call my mom 3 or 4 times in a rude manner asking for me, my wife, or if we were divorced. What a jerk!
we have gotten calls from this number at 8:15 am over and over again.
they claim that I owe on old student loans but yet all my student loans have been long since paid off

Caller said he wanted to check on service received from a call to Verizon Service. Never made such call. call at 7:30 PM
They called and didn't leave a message
This number has called numerous times over the past week. We never picked up, but they are VERY persistent. I'm thinking of changing my voicemail message to include: "if you are from TNS, don't bother calling again, we will never answer." It worked with another company, The Pisa Group.
Call from NCO financial.
I was just left this number and I have no idea what it is about? I don't do long distance ext1736
Called once, never called back, left no message on my answ. machine.
I got a call from this number on my home phone. The caller ID had this phone number and above it, "Pennsylvania." The man gave me absolutely no information for his reason for calling, but asked for verification of my social security number and date of birth. He read off a social security number that was not mine as well as a birth date that was not mine. I informed him that he had the wrong person and hung up. Assuming later that I was a potential identity theft victim, I called the number back and received the message that the number had been disconnected. I for one am extremely disturbed by this potential threat to me.
They hang up all the time... I've tried to call them back and all they do is disconnect the call!! It's so annoying!
They call me about every 5 mins on my cell phone never my house phone and NEVER leave a message I have nothing in collections so I have no idea.....
Looked these jerks up online and here is the Website:
They are an outsourcing collection agency, but where they get their info is shady. They msut depend on untrue info given to them (lies). Too, wonder if people are vitims of identity theft and these collectors get info on mostly the victims instead of the criminals.
They disturb my sick mother often and we just don't answer.
XBox Financial Support making sure a refund went thru
Was very rude with a bronx accent. Accusatory and derisive in nature. My father answered the phone and asked who he was to which he replied, "What?!? Is Erik not man enough to take any of his own calls?!?" I will be looking into harrassment and filing a tort claim if he proceeds to keep calling...
Dennis Roberts from NCO Financial Systems, a debt collection company, wanted a call back on an 800 number.
Receiving 215) 244-4200, nasty calls, very rude and threatening. Demanding to call back.
I got two calls from this number and they left no messages. Who are they?
An individual ( Mrs. Stark) called on 2/5/07 to demand money or she was going to have my wages garnished. I told her I had no idea of what she was referring to. I would know if I had borrowed $16,000.00 from someone! She really got belligerent when I wouldn't give her my SSN. She has been repeatably calling my cell, home # and my wife' business number for the last two days and won't let up. I have filed a complaint w/ BBB in E. Penn. and the FTC. Hopefully someone can keep people as them in check.
No message. Am blocking it as a solicitor call.
A very rude David Ramirez has been calling me about a 1800 debt, I have sent him 600 since Dec 30th, 2006 by western union, he called me on Mon and said that If I did not give him a checking account number, he would only give me48 hours to come up with 1200 balance or I would go to jail. He has called me names over the phone and is very harassing. I will not answer any more of his calls.
Very rude man making his message on my voice mail sound as if he is fbi. no clue who he is ang what he wanted
caller id said "NCB" I did not answer the call
This company is a debt collections company called NCO Financial. They collect debts from Amazon.com, Ebay and Citi cards as well as many small companies in the east.
The correct telephone number to reach someone on is 1-800-709-8638.
If they are really calling in error and you inform them of this, they should not call you again.
It does not matter if you are on the Do Not Call List because they are a debt collection company, not sales.
When I called the number back it said the number was disconnected
when they asked for me i said hello then they hung up...
a guy called andtold me about a debt and wanted to know personal things about me and what I do. I asked him why and he said it was he was from a collection agency for my student loan. So to stop the personal questions I told him I wanted to make arangements to pay the loan off and he said some rude things to me and then hung up. I tried calling back and the number was unavailable.
Called for my husband, said it was for a financial matter and left an 866 no. I tried to call the 215-675-1573 no. back and it was disconnected. What a scam
Everyone, I received a similar call.
I recommend registering with the Fed's National Do Not Call List www.donotcall.gov
Also, I recommend complaining to them about this. They have the ability to charge and fine phone harrassers.
They are calling my cell and not leaving any messages.
Came up as Phila Subrb, PA at 5:58pm
Somehow these people got hold of my office number and I was called at work. The man said it was in reagrd to a personal matter. When I asked about what he said regarding a debt owed which I had paid off long ago. I said I could not speak now and he asked for another number to reach me (which they have been calling for over a month now so they already have it) and I told him sorry, I can't do that at the moment. He asked why and I said I was in a meeting (I wasn't but there were other employees in my office) adn he responded by saying "Well, you've been on this call for 45 seconds already" and I said thank you but I have to hang up and I did. Now I have to call the originator of thedebt and request a pay off notice IN WRITING.
This call for me was from Sprint PCS. I am ordering some parts from them and Sprint isnt smart emough to get the order through.

called in ref to my x husband whom i had been divorced from for 17 years. i have remarried i dont know how they connected me to him
Got a call the other day from this number - I answered it and the person immediately claimed I had an "outstanding student loan." I never HAD A STUDENT LOAN so after a few comments back and forth and my hearing a wrong SS# (last four didgits) he said he had the wrong Frank... but today I got a call again and this time did not answer it. I then Googled the number and found this site and also confirmed it's NCO for sure. Are they nuts?
Got a couple calls from this number today,they hung up twice but it ended up being Xbox Live customer support.
no message just what i thought was a prank of heavy breathing....
Just had a call come in at 7:00 EST from the above number. No caller ID info available and it was on my cellphone. Didn't answer and glad I didn't.
I never answer the calls I receive from this number - generally 1-2x per week. My number is on a no call list.
SAID THEY WERE A RESEARCH SURVEY COMPANY AND WANTED ME TO ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS. WOULD NOT LET ME OFF THE PHONE AFTER I TOLD THEM NO SEVERAL TIMES AND FINALLY HAD TO GET UGLY BECAUSE I HAD A LONG DISTANCE CALL ON THE OTHER LINE.
This is a work cell phone and they called four times over the weekend without a message. I called back and had to go through the operator to try to figure out who it was (never said). They were trying to reach someone else, and said they would remove this number, we'll see if that happens...
They keep calling my house finally I picked it up to tell them to leave me alone but nnobody was there I really want the calls to stop
I got a call today, at 8pm, 1-18-07 and they asked if I had an Xbox (I don't)
Everyone who receives a call from these guys should email email@example.com
Maybe if he starts receiving thousands of unsolicited emails he'll get the message!
Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be put on the company's no call list. It can't hurt...they already have our phone number.
got called from this number today and it was Xbox Customer Support.
Just called 1/17/07 at 10:25 AM California time. It said 'unavaialble' and the number...
called my parents house for me. I called Sue Loftin back. she requested my current number, would not tell me what account was sent to collections (there shouldn't be any I know for a fact) then told me she would call me back. note: she did have my current address.
Refused to accept that the party he was looking for wasn ot living at my number. Got very abusive. told him to eat shit and die and hung up on him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mrs Smith and she wouldnt say what she wanted so I told her I wasn't going to give her any information.
I thought I was on the DO NOT CALL List........
do not answer this phone call...it is a bill collector and they have been calling me at all hours and are very rude, even when i explain that this is my work cell phone they keep on talking...
some guy named, "Jack Russo", i don't know who he is, and he won't say why he's calling. oh well.....
got call from this twice, no messag either time. didn't answer either time.
Called wanting to collect on a debt and were very rude, implying that I was a lowlife, etc. because I would not give any information.
Am seriously considering filing suit and contacting the BBB.
Add me to the list, as anyone contacted the police or phone company?
Beware! It's a scam! Got two voicemails from this number on my work #(!!), demanding (rudely) immediate call-back for some debt outstanding. Finally I decided to call back to stop the harassment. The woman asked for my SSN. I said I wasn't going to give you my social. She said it's for verification purpose as she had my social. I said let's hear it. She gave a completely random SSN and a bogus birth date, both under my name and work number!!! I demanded my number be taken off the list, and she said she would. The way I look at it, they were fishing for personal info. They were just calling whatever numbers they could get their hands on, and in my case, they lifted my name from my recorded message, which is not even my legal name and thus couldn't possibly be the name under which I would incur any debt. Is there anything we could do to stop this harassment and scam?
I received calls from NCo Financial group forabout 6months or better...and I'm beginnign to wonder if they are a legit company or if they are scamming me for money...they say they are attepting to collect a debt from my student loans but when i get my statement it never looks as if anything is being accounted for. I'm nervous that i am being scammed and taken for my money
Caller ID says simply "Philadelphia". After visiting your site, I Googled "NCO Group" and discovered they are the world's largest debt collection agency and apparently have already been sued by the FTC in 2004 for mis-representing consumer delinquency (they settled but denied any wrongdoing).
Here's their info:
NCO (North Collections Org.)
507 Prudential Rd, Horsham PA 19044. Numbers given on website are 800-220-2274 and 215-441-3000. The CEO, President, and Chairman of the Board is listed as Michael Barrist. I did not return the call, the message was virtually incomprehensible.
This company is a big scam. For some reason their phone got disconnected(215)675-1573. Thats good.
Called Saturday at 11AM, no answer
Called 12/27 8:26mst. Didn't pick up, no msg. If you call the number, you can listen to a somewhat bitchy woman explain what it is all about. They wanted me to take a survey, not sell me anything. I don't think the DNC lists apply.
Thank goodness for the internet! Received a message today from someone with this number on caller i.d. that said my lawyer had called them and they had to get in touch with me within 2 days. He said his name was Kevin Galbraith and left an 800-611-0641 number for me to call back. I've never had a lawyer in my life. So I started searching and thank you all for your feedback and this page. The internet in great for stopping the fraud out there!
just got called from this number. i tried to call it back and got a disconnected response. asked for 5K debt balance due. i've got no debt. i believe this is a scam
So idiot named "Mr.Johnson" keeps calling my mother's residence asking for me. He didn't identify a company or say what it was in regards to. He got rude with my mother when she informed him that I didn't live there, he got rude and continued to call her. He even left a message on her machine threatening to turn me into the authorities for fraud. I have no idea what the hell he is talking about!
call from 215-442-7094 at4:01p.m., caller id says TNS
Very rude male called. When I insisted he tell me who he was, he started to yell at me & I hung up. I called the # back, & recieved a recording saying that the # was disconnected.
I refused to answer before looking the number up

two calls within 20 minutes - I don't answer calls from number i don't recognize
Called - he left detailed message - I returned his call and he wasnt at his desk.....I returned the call...now its on him to catch me......the receptionist told me MCB Management after I called her back three times and pressed for the information....very rude employees work for this company - they would NOT get a job in my office...
Very interesting! I have never gotten a call from this number until the sheriffs office tryed to serve civil court papers on me. The have continued calling me and once I signed the papers, no more calls from this number! All this took place within three days! Watch your back!
Almost forgot, here is the information on them:
e-mail their president, Brett Silver, and try to annoy him everyday as his people do you with phone calls. Or better yet, phone him as well!
Some jackasses from NCB Management who most likely make just over minimum wage and are unworthy of you talking with them. Don't answer their phone calls and after maybe three months or so they will go away...
They hung up when we answered the phone.
Called 2 days in a row, did not answer, stopped ringing after 3 rings. Listed as "Unknown" on caller ID
Call for my sister (haven't talked to her for a long time) - said it was a business call and gave a callback number.
Missed the call, but wanted to google it to see who it could have been. Now I'm glad I didn't call back.
I gotta call too and they didnt leave a message. I called back and it says that I have reached NCO financial Services.
Just the others, I recieved multiple calls from this number and different times of the day. I do not pick up and they do not leave messages.
Have not answered decided to google it first but they have left me 4 messages in 2 days.
WTF? Second time a "research Company" called this week ! What type of research they gotta do that involves calling me while I watch my TV after dinner?
Call Bush in the White House, he doesn't have anything better to do. Bug him as to why we are paying $250M a month to watch the Civil War.
They called, caller ID showed NCO Financial, however, the voice mail they left stated they were "vonage" funny my phone service is thru vonage. ???? WTH are they trying to pull I know NCO IS A COLLECTION AGENCY? and my phone is working and I am not past due. WTF?
Someone from NCB called a relative and I just returned the call. I spoke to a Miss Thomas who informed me of a debt. After nearly 20 minutes, I offered to make a monthly restitution on the debt. My offer was refused and I was told legal action would be taken against me.
Called at 9:45 Mountain. I called back and they are a research company located in Pennsylvania.

10:47am on 12-3-06... caller ID says "Intersearch Cor" and "215-442-7094"... male said he was conducting research and I hung up... on DNC.
this has continued for months!When I said they had no right to harass me, the supervisor suddenly burst on and yelled at me!
I get a call at least once a week from this number. Since I don't know who they are I do not answer the calls. They have never left a message. They call my cell phone.
Got multiple calls from the number. Did not pick up. This is a business line.
We received a call from someone at this number last night. The call was for my wife saying that she was a contact for someone who did not exist. The caller was rude and when this was pointed out he stated that his voice was "firm, that's my voice". I asked if there was a message that could be left and was berated and then he hung up. We tried calling 1-215-675-1573 and it was redirected local to us and was picked up by some poor soul who has been reciving calls on this situation on her cell phone due to the redirect. Complaints are going to our local attorney general, FTC, and our telephone carrier.
called 4 times no message and they caled within two hours
Horrible lady called....very nasty. I told her she got the wrong number and she was very very rude.

This number is NCO Financial, a debt collector. They also use the numbers 214-446-0110 and 866-287-2543. If you stay on the line long enough, you will probably hear a recorded message.
continuously leaves messages. the number they leave for me to return the call at is not the same one that appears on my caller id. very strange. very difficult to understand. will call at random times and does not give information that is helpful.
Rude bill collection agency. They collect money you owe(d) to other people.
A man named "Jack Waters" keeps calling my house and won't say what he wants. I don't have any "debt" so I have no idea what he wants!
Called looking for a former employee, saying that she had a commitment with his company that he needed to settle.
I got a call from them a few weeks ago on my cell phone but missed the call, then again today at home, and on my cell phone too. When I called the number back its a collection agency or something, and when I told them that they had been calling me, they put my phone numbers in there system and nothing comes up. So, I dont know who these people are, but they got my number somehow.
I keep getting calls for someone unknown to me from this number. I found this info on the Internet: NCB Management Services, Incorporated
One Allied Drive
Trevose, PA 19053
I just got a call from this number twice. No message.
Calls all the time! Hate research groups.
Third call, they are now calling AFTER 9pm.
The number came up and I thought it might have been a client. I answered it as I normallay would if it was a client and they came back with "I'm looking for..." and hung up. When I called the number back, no one would answer.
A caller from this number was looking for Marieanne Paulsen. She has not lived here since April of 2001. Why are they calling here now after all these years? She moved to Bankcroft, Ontario. After that, I have no clue where anyone can find her.
They asked for Micheal I told him no such person by that name lived here, they then said it again, I told them again no one by that name lives here. I then told them that Mitchell lives here.....they asked to talk to him I said he was not in they then asked for his cell phone number, I told them no, I asked for a number for him to return the call, they asked for a better time to call him. She was rude!!!

I am on both no-call lists. The Texas A. G. office said they do not have enough teeth in the law to enforce the law. They said to call my federal reps. What a joke?
called twice in seattle at 10:24 am PST on 9/24/06. Caller ID shows Intersearch Cor, but some hispanic man asked for me by name.

Once again they asked for his address and I informed the male caller that they had been given this information and hung up on the rude idiot
He left a message for Mary Ellen (mabe Murrey Alan? Hard to understand him). Said his name was Kevin Flynn (?). Didn't sound rude, just hard to understand. No caller ID.

These freak call and even if you answer they hang up!
Calls from (215)675-1573 are from a collector attempting to get you to settle your student loan or some other outstanding debt.
To reinforce what Elizabeth has already stated, this man was unecessarily rude and short with me on the phone. He did not want to give any reason as to why he was calling, so I hung up on him.
This guy Chris keeps calling from this number, saying he's with NCO.. He tried to verify my info but I wouldn't give him any information, then he told ME the last 4 digits of the ss number he had associated with the account, without even checking to see if he was speaking to the right person. He called me 6 times in half an hour... His name is Chris Tatum
Very rude gentelman, wanted to talk to my son.
Got this call on my mobile on 22 Aug 2006. It was a woman calling on behalf of Verizon Wireless asking for someone that I do not know. They said they had a record of someone calling the VZW service center from my number on the 18th. No one had. I'm assuming it was a independent survey company.
These people are scam artist!! Don't give them your info. They keep trying to collect a light bill debt from me which is paid off. And come to find out my light company doesn't even use "outside" collection agencies!! BEWARE!! Terrorist ATLARGE
This company (NCO or NCL?) has called my home three times in one week. They claim to be collecting on an outstanding debt. They had my name & phone number but the wrong SS# and address. I have never lived in the city of the address they had. My husband took the first two calls and I got the third one. We have both told "Bruce" that he's got the wrong number. I couldn't tell if he was saying NCO or NCL but I thought it was strange that he didn't know what the letters stood for so I got on the net to see what I could find.
Called at 4:59pm on 17 August 2006. No idea who or what this number belongs to. Cell Phone is already on the National Do Not Call Registry.
A caller from this number was looking for a Zach someone or other and was somewhat rude when I told him we had no one by that name here. Demanded to know whther this was a business or residence number. I hung up on him. This was the first call from this number.
Taylor Nelson Sofres (TNS) Intersearch is a market research company.

I recieved a message from this number telling me to call another number.
I got 2 calls from this # in the past 3 days. I didn't recognize the number on my mobile phone's caller ID. I did not answer since I've been getting telemarketers calling my mobile. I have reported the other calls. I will not give my phone# through this website.
This woman was very nasty, I can not believe any company would hire her-I informed her she was calling a business & she didnt care, My employees dont need to be harrassed by a foul mouth person like this. She hung up on me when I asked her to stop calling
refused to listen to me when i informed "akeem" he was calling montana and the person he wanted was in massachusetts. he told me i'm legally responsible for a third party debt because akeem called me and not debtor. may threats
