These people are using Obama (Stimulus) money to make phone calls. They probably get paid for every phone call they make.
This is the same scam used by card holder services.
Doesn't it make you feel warm and fuzzy to know your tax dollars are paying them to do this!

Portfolio has purchased a new block of VOIP numbers to use when spoofing their calls. This is a collection agency that purchases "dead paper" and attempts to collect by any means.

This company is staffed with a lot of morons. They keep calling for my dead mother-in-law even though they have copies of her death certificate and have been told repeatedly she is dead. Let them keep calling, its not my debt and they won't collect a dime.

Caller ID listed the number as Portfolio Recovery, who as usual call and leave no message. I've never actually talked to these clowns, but based on other reports I've read, they run some sort of debt collection scam calling from several numbers from several states. Suffice to say the only debt I have is a monthly credit card balance, and I'd assume if there was a problem with that, the credit card company would call, not these losers.

There's a movement going on at the moment where people just answer the phone and put it on mute when they call. Keep it on and let them do the hanging up. It costs them money, ties up their employees and will put them out of business. Seems to be the best way to fight back at the moment.

These guys are zombie collectors. Portfolio Recovery. They try to collect debt that is past the statute of limitations or in the case of my brother, someone who is dead. My brother died over a year ago and these idiots called today looking for him. Said he gave me as nearest relative. I know he died with a lot of bills, trying to survive cancer isn't cheap. I told these guys that he was dead. They wanted to know if I got any insurance money and they wanted a copy of the death certificate. I told thme to fu*k off and hung up and if they call again I'll report them under the fair debt collections act.

Have had calls 2 days in a row they have called me at work and on my cell. Claiming I have 2 claims against me in my county, and I know for a fact that I don't. The number on the caller ID is 716-650-5211 and the number to call back is 888-491-6167. I haven't answered and I don't plan to. If it continues I will file a complaint and contact my lawyer.

February 27th, 2014 Rachel CA

This is a scam. I had an attorney research Searay and they are not legitimate. They purchase financial information from on line lenders and then use it to threaten people into paying. They refuse to validate debts and leave messages at various relatives houses. They claim there are two claims pending in the court in your county. It's a scam. No legitimate lender should threaten law suits. They are not willing to validate the debt if its real. Simply hang up and don't converse with them. Please file a complaint with the Counsumer Financial Protection bureau and warm relatives to not awnser their calls

Have received multiple calls from this number, am completely debt free. Calls are a multiple choice test: call us because there is a prosecution to begin, you are a reference for, trying to locate such and such, etc.

The person leaving a message is a "Frank Jacoby"

The number of calls and messages ( all calls do not have associated messages, many are hang ups)

Not my problem, not my business, not ethical!

Yet another number for Portfolio (aka The Creepers). Even though the 'debt' is not valid, they still call almost every day using numbers from all over the US. If the caller id shows a city name and state abbreviation - don't bother answering. Just block the latest number if possible (we have completely filled our phone's blocked number capability).

I received a call stating she was Melissa Clark from a legal office in Hernando County and I had two LEO claims against me and I was to call to see if I wanted to handle them without litigation. The number to call back was 888-491-6167. I gave them a number to call back by 8:30 in the morning. The 716 number is traced back to Matt Lewison in New York. This is a con job usually from Mumbai.

I have received several calls from this number on multiple occassions. They never leave a message and I haven't received ANYTHING by mail from this company. If I supposedly do have a true debt with them, then something should have been sent by mail. The one time I did answer, the woman was extremely rude when I questioned where they located and tried to obtain additional information regarding the company.

They have been calling for over 2 years. Sometimes 4-6 times a day. they have approx 200+ telephone numbers that they use. The first lady I talked to told me that "this call may be recorded" My answer was "GOOD! I Hope So!"
I asked her for her number and the Account # she was calling about. The number she gave me was 2 numbers short. Eventually, a "supervisor" jumped in. I explained to the Idiot that Portfolio Recovery Services was contacted by my Lawyer 2 years ago and they were told NOT to call me. SPECIFICALLY because I had already been officially served and this case had already been filed whit what ever legal beagle Portfolio Recovery Service hired to do so. The Idiot says, "Well! Who's Your Lawyer?" My reply was, you already know who my lawyer is, it a matter of record. Look It Up In Your Computers, Check Your Own Records. I then repeated "Do NOT Call This Number Ever Again. The Idiot says "No! Send Us A Letter" Obviously too stupid to understand that they had already been contacted by my lawyer with a cease & desist letter, as in DO NOT CALL. So, they will be getting a registered return receipt letter including copies of the letters that's going to the Secretary Of State & The Attorney General of That State.

Well now with the new credit laws it does stay on your credit report longer than 7 Yrs. But you can answer and tell them to never contact you again and they have to stop. If they didn't prosecute you before the 7 Yrs it's now considered phantom debit and unless you volunteer to pay the debt they can't do anything to you and they have to stop harassing you.

Called my home phone, which is strange because we hardly ever receive calls on our landline. I'm home on break for the holidays and when I saw the area code I originally thought it was school-related because I go to Arizona State. Woman voice called asking for someone named Ryan? I was surprised, and she then hung up when I said there was no one here by that name. So weird.

1424 complaints with the BBB on Portfolio Recovery....I only got through 28 pages...all within the last several months. wow

December 13th, 2013 noname CO

keeps calling never leaving a message. I called back from my caller ID....they say they do not know who they are calling but want my name. they say they have several people listed at this number. Pretty sure it can not be for me (collector. Portfolio Recovery). they should know who they are calling but say they dont. then challanged me on why I wont tell them who I am...there are scammers and why should I tell my name if they dont know who they are calling at the number. I told them if they do not know who they are calling for then to remove my number and not call again or I will report harrassment. If it is for me then I will tell them so, but since they are calling a number claiming they dont know who they are calling...I have to assume this is a scam. I hope they read the comments and if they do....you are getting reported and if by the unlikely chance you are trying to collect from me.....expect a countersuit on harrassment. to continously call a phone that you do not know the party to whom you are trying to reach...saying it would be giving out private information to tell me who they are calling..got news for you Portfolio....asking for the person you are calling is not a release of private information! It would be private information for me to release my name when they do not know who they want at this number. I believe they are either scammers or if they are a legit collection I hope someone sonewhere counter sues for harrassment.

Number belongs to Portfolio Recovery Services a third party debt collector who buys bad debts for pennies on the dollar and then attempts to collect them. If successful they make an enormous profit compared to what they paid for the debt. This is never a good situation for anyone receiving telephone calls from them. First of all, the debt may not be legitimate and even if it was often it is so old that the original creditor could not recover the debt legally because the statute of limitations had expired. Secondly, even if this was your debt if it reached the point that they are calling you undoubtedly do not have the money to give them which is the only reason they are calling you. Never speak to them it will do you no good.

Ah, our wonderful friends from Portfolio Management. She tried the cutesy, "Is Kenny there?" I said, "There is nobody of that name here." I was being very honest when I said that. There is no "Kenny" here; although there is a Kenneth. That was kind of fun. Usually I answer the phone in Japanese or Korean...just to screw with their heads. Of course, there is also the standard, "F*** You!." BTW, when people try read you the whole spiel about, "We are recording this call," I answer, "OK, I have been recording you since I first picked up the phone. It is also fun to say that you do know who they called about...and that they have moved to Bolivia. If they do snag you one the phone, just tell them, "No calls...put it in writing, and I will get back with you at my convenience. Look folks, these people aren't going to take you to court unless we are dealing with a debt of over $2,500 or so. It just isn't worth it for them. Remember, if it gets to these clowns, it has already been written off by the creditor. If you really feel like paying, give it directly to the initial creditor...that really annoys these Zombie Debt Collectors.

Portfolio recovery. Asked them to send me an invoice from the creditor and a signed contract between me and that creditor and all they send is their own little invoice. They like to talk over you while you are talking. If they are really representing a creditor it should be a simple thing to prove that I ever had an account with that creditor. They are able to do that yet but insist on calling after asking them to put everything in writing no more calls.

Also, as my nick name indicates, I am 100% positive that I am debt free, and have been for almost 3 years. I regularly review my credit history at the Annual Credit Report . com web site run by the FTC and credit scores from my bank for free and from the Credit Karma site, also free. Any number of family members may have had debt at some point in life, but it is neither me nor my father, so they have absolutely no business calling either of us. They are not acting ethically or legally in their operations. They are trying to lure people into calling back, then abuse them into paying for a debt, preying upon the old and feeble minded people. I have filed a complaint with the FTC's Do Not Call . Gov web site.

November 10th, 2013 DebtFreePerson MA

I could not understand the entire beginning of his message. He spoke very fast and the sound was a bit muffled, or he selectively mumbled. I could not understand who he was addressing, who he was representing, or what the specific debt was regarding. There have been no postal mailings, as is customary in a legal debt collection attempt. However, when it came to the threatening sounding phrases like court and legal action, his voice magically became clear and slowed down a bit. Then again, I could not understand the case # either. I generally have excellent hearing. I can hear someone outside raking leaves about 100 feet away, over the sound of my noisy computer and the sound of the wind blowing on the trees and buildings. My father, whom I live with, would likely not have understood any of the message at all.

November 9th, 2013 Brad CA

In the last two days, I received a phone message stating that I had "two claims pending," similar to the responses given to others. This particular person said his name was Roy Gibson. It also sounded in the background as if it was a "boiler room" with others also making calls. I do not plan on responding to them, however it I answer and do get them, I'll tell them that my attorney will contact them. That usually gets them upset and/or they don't call again. I'll get these calls every 6 months or so and I noticed the responses below are somewhat current, so apparently we must the new group on the list they just purchased. Hang in there the best way you can.

I too, received a call from that same number and was asked to call 1-888-491-6167 and reference my case # that they gave me on the voicemail. I was told the same thing also, that it was in regards to 2 matters that are in my county and that if I would like to take care of them outside of our county I should call ASAP. I called the toll free number above and got a female voice that I was not able to understand the name of the person on the recording, but it did sound like she said that she was with ACS or the Sea Ray, that all others made reference to in their comments. Waiting for a call back from them, since I asked for a detailed explaination of what these matters are in regards to. My return call to them was after 5 PM Central time, so I would anticipate a call tomorrow again, if they are really persistent.

This company has been calling me almost every day for a few years. I picked up the phone and talked to them a few years ago. Seems that they want to collect on an old Discover card debt. I have never had a Discover card and told them so. They asked for my social security #, but no way was I giving that. They asked for the last four digits, I wouldn't give them that but told them if they would give me the last 4 of the one they had, I would verify that it was mine. Gee, they don't seem to trust me with that information either. I figured they Googled a name like mine and called all that was listed. I did tell them that if they did have anything that was mine,then send me proof of the debt in the mail (as they are required by law). Of course, nothing has arrived. It is easier to keep harrassing people on the phone. The way it plays out is they will try to convince you to pay something on the debt and it will go away. But, once you give them a dime, the whole debt is yours and now collectable...even if it was an out of date uncollectable debt. Any payment reinstates the debt

Portfolio Recovery Solution have been using 757-961-6544 and many other number to call ad try to have me pay a debt for a loan my husband got back in the 1990s and defaulted on up in Chicago. I met him in 2010 and we got married now in 2013 they keep calling me to pay off the debt. I have explained my husband had a heart attack and is disabled and cannot work and will not be paying off the debt and it is not my debt so I have no intention of paying it but they keep calling. Each time I tell them I cannot have them calling me because I am at my job they push and push until I hang up. Then they call back with a new number.

This crap should in and of itself be outright illegal, this is just short of blatant telephone harassment.

These crooks are trying to collect debt that is 20 years old. They use that pretext, that doesn't have a snowballs chance in hell of standing up to a legal challenge, to harass and threaten legal actions themselves. They hope people can't afford a lawyer and try to take advantage of them making them pay debt they can't even prove the origin of. These guys are dirtbags and criminals themselves. Kinda like loan sharks that buy decades old debt for pennies and try to intimidate you into paying them.

Call traced to Portafolio, a zombie debt collector. I answered by saying (person asked for) is not at this number. Asked who I was..."I am Hugh Jorgan." They called back...I answered the phone in Japanese this time. Typical scumbag zombie debt types.

Portfolio Recovery calls multiple times per day before 8:00 AM and after 9:00 PM. Criminal SCAMMERS trying to collect FALSE debts. Will get your info through the different credit report agencies when you open a new bank account, get a new credit card, get a loan of any kind, etc. Then they will manufacture false debts often from loans that were PAID in full years a go. They harass their innocent victims and are actively being investigated and prosecuted by many government agencies. Do NOT answer their calls. Portfolio Recovery and their employees are CRIMINALS who are in the business of EXTORTION.

The FBI in an story in this week's Wall Street Journal (featured at Yahoo!) tells about the 14 most dangerous spam/scam/phishing phone and e-mail contacts being made out there. If you get an e-mail from a cousin in Italy who needs 6000 euros to pay for a bone marrow transplant, and they need it sent to them right away, that's the kind of stuff that is going on out there. And if you get an e-mail presumably from an American G.I. overseas, be careful!

Reverse lookup indicated this was a suspected telemarketer (Portfolio-Recovery) with 6 previous reports (Spokeo). Very elaborate message left on my answering machine from "Fran" giving her company as ABC Continuation Benefits Service. She referred to a 10-character case number and hours of operation urging me to call 1-800-526-2720. A reverse lookup indicated that this was not a valid number.

This is Portfolio Recovery. They are as irritating as poison ivy. Nasty people with no compassion. I have breast cancer & do you think they care? I have informed them that I don't owe this money, however that response fell on deaf ears. They call up to three times a day. They try using different numbers. I have stopped answering. Wish they would stop calling. Wonder if they will keep calling after I'm dead? Most assuredly. Let them have my ashes!

July 2nd, 2013 Sylvester CO

O.K. This is Portfolio Recovery Services' modus operandi:

I moved to Colorado 9 years ago from another state. Upon moving here, I got my current phone number. Almost immediately I started getting calls for an "Angela Braxton" from a collection agency. During 2004 and 2005, I called Portfolio Recovery Services (PRS) numerous times to let them know that I'm not Angela Braxton and have no idea who she is. PRS ignored my pleas to stop calling and kept calling me anyway, sometimes day and night.

Finally, I got the feature from Qwest (now CenturyLink) that allows a person to block 25 numbers. Over the next few years, I kept blocking numbers from PRS. As you poor guys know, PRS will then start calling from a different number. Eventually, I ran out of blocking possibilities. So I cleaned out all those 25 blocked numbers and started afresh. As usual, I continue to get calls from PRS asking for Angela Braxton. I keep blocking the new numbers PRS uses to call its "victims."

At 8:46 this morning I got another call from PRS which went to messages. In the meantime I decided to enjoy this constant harassment and have a little fun at their expense. I decided, "O.K., I'll pretend to be Angela Braxton" and returned their call claiming to be Angela Braxton.

They wanted to know if my address is in Aurora. It is not, and so I said so. On second thought, I should have said "Yes." PRS' second question was about my social security number, giving the last 4 digits of what Angela's social security number is supposed to be. Again, I said that was not my SS number, which is true.

And then I blew it big time. They started asking other questions. I said I could not help them because I was not the Angela Braxton they were looking for. When they started to ask for information about me, I said "You have no idea who I am, where I live, what my SS number is. You know nothing about me, so just try to go after me for whatever you want!"

Now, maybe if I've planted some good ideas in those of you who might be more creative than I am, go to it! Let's have a little fun and help stop this nonsense. Maybe if everyone pitched in and shared their experiences here as to what they tried and how successful their efforts were, we might hit on an idea or two that will make this type of harassment come to a screeching halt!

Bon voyage!

They are not a real collecting agency!i know this because this morning at 3:11am they called my 12 year old daughter asking for her to pay for her dept! this is a scam to get money from people what ever you do dont pay them its a trick and its very annoying. They call her everyday and its just really rude and i would like this to stop but sadly we have no way of stopping.

June 27th, 2013 Cherryl Walker LA

We are in a war against these trash bags to gain control of our communications privacy. In the USA, the laws were changed in about 2006, and that opened the floodgates for these "monsters" to discover how to circumvent the law, and inundate us with junk phone calls. Vote out of office the scalawags who voted for the law changes in 2006, and vote into office people who will respect and honestly represent "we the people".

June 27th, 2013 Densha Otoko SD

Some great spoof names are: Mai Wang, Big Phat Dik, Mitch Komestainne. Another fun ploy is to answer the phone as (Insert name of choice) Law Offices. Mirroring their language is also kind of fun. Listen to them and repeat what they are saying as they say it. Telling them that you are recording their call is also fun. Maybe answer the phone using the name of a local television station...or a church name that you make up.

June 27th, 2013 Densha Otoko SD

When someone shows up as unlisted, private, or whatever, I do the following: I answer the phone in either Japanese or Korean. I use the name of any J-Pop/K-Pop singer I can find. One time I answered as Akihito, who is the Emperor of Japan. I put it this way: It is my phone and I will talk to the people I choose to talk to, not some scumbag trying to collect timed-out debts that they buy for pennies on the dollar. I have also answered in English as "Hugh Jorgan" (think about it). For the record, they use multiple phone numbers, none of which is their number. It is fun to just screw with them. It wastes their time, which cuts into their commissions. If you speak a foreign language, use a name in that corresponds to that language. Go to Google Translate and type in the most vile English sentence you can think of...then push translate into the language of your choice. I have also been known to just utter a continuous series of insults and profanities. These people are sharks...and they will never take their claim to court...so, abuse them as much as they are abusing others.

It's a low-budget collection agency. I paid them for a while, but the wouldn't send a statement, a monthly bill, or confirmation of payment. I requested these things over the phone, and both the agent and their manager violently argued that they do not have to do so. So I stopped paying them.

I have received at least a hundred calls from Portfolio Recovery wanting to collect a debt that has met its statutory limit. In order to avoid these calls, I give my MagicJack phone number, which is connected to a ipod, to any possible company that would feed my contact info into a credit profile. I keep the volume turned off on this ipod and I never know when they are calling. It totally solved the problem of unwanted contact with these jokers.

Number keeps calling a non listed #. What I know is if you answer the phone, you have automatically started whatever debt from the beginning. I do not owe anyone. But I do not plan to help weird callers harass me either over someone else's bill because I have their #. Advice.. do not answer calls from #s you do not know who it is. Once upon a time, I had a bill that the insurance company failed to pay to a hospital. I did not know because I never received a bill stating that. One day, I had a call from a man that spoke to me about that outstanding bill. He started yelling over the phone to me and informed me he was on the way to my house to collect and I BETTER HAVE IT. It freaked me out so bad.. I called back to the hospital to speak to the Administrator. Informed them of the call. She told me it was not the first complaint she had about it. She said she would call me back in a few minutes and for me to call the police if anyone showed up. Well no one showed but she did call me back and apologized to the fact that a X employee had taken debt files and was calling people for outstanding funds .. she did ask me to describe his voice and it was exactly as others that described him to be. So see.. you just never know about these things.
