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
Target Collections | Target Collections?? |
targetcollections calls from 4 phone numbers:
This is a scam. Target does not call people to collect. I am not late and this caller told me I had missed a payment and I was being charged a 25.00 fee. They know how much is due on my next payment.She wanted me to make a payment over the phone. DO NOT this is a scam. if you have any doubt call target.
i missed one payment to target my mistake because i never charge on it so spaced out even owing. the balance is $57. i will never use this card again..
This is a TARGET collection co, even if a person schedules a payment they still call they are not professional at all.
I have a Target card which is paid in full. These people "spoof" their number. It came up on my caller ID as Broadview Media. I didn't know it was Target until I googled the number and found this website.
I pay on my Target account but refuse to activate my new card because of the high interest rate. My daughter got disgusted of this morons calling at least every hour. When she answered the phone there was no one there. You would think if the call was that important they would at least leave a message.
I paid on my account and they have the nerve to still call my number at unGodly hours like idiots waking me up!
Target account services. Minneapolis
Have sent letter with times/dates of repeated,thus, harassing calls to all local, state, and federal agencies that have any connection with harassing calls. Calling one's phone line carrier is an exercise in futility. Thank you. No idea who, what, or why the calls.
Called 6 times today, already made the payment yesterday. Went off on the girl, told her I was closing this account and would give Walmart my money. She asked why, I told her #1 you have a toll free number and you don't leave a message on my machine, you hang up when it kicks on, #2 you call 8 times per day. She said she would take away my $35. late fee. Oh so nice of them. I will be closing this account since this is the FIRST time I've ever been late and it was 5 days past due.
They don't give up, call on my cell and on my home phone. Don't give up and I won't answer the phone. It's harassment.
Our company repeatedly receives abandoned calls from Target. This is only the latest number they have used. We don't have any business dealings with Target and don't own any credit cards, so I have no idea why they are calling. If they are trying to reach an employee about a personal matter, or the company who had our telephone number three years ago, then someone on the other end of the line needs to speak up. I can't help them when they hang up every time I answer.
These are the numbers associated with Target that we've been receiving abandoned calls from, and the names displayed on my caller ID:
612-852-0021 Minneapolis MN
888-608-7627 Target Visa
952-852-0003 Target TFS
Someone from this number has made probably close to 80 phone calls - as I can count on my caller id. I have answered twice. They are very rude. They are calling for a person who doesn't live here anymore. They ask NUMEROUS interrogatory and accusatory questions to try to probe for any information about the person that doesn't live here anymore!!! How do we get them to stop calling!?!?!!!
I received a call 12/28/2010. Caller ID showed (952) 852-0003, TARGET TFS. Thinking it strange that I would be receiving a call from Target as my account of many years ago had been closed with a zero balance a long time, I called back the number on my caller id, using someone else's cell phone. The automated prompts asked for my account number repeatedly. I ignored the prompts until I could go to a "live" person. Again I was asked for my account number and my phone number. I insisted that because they had called me, they should already have that information. they then identified the cell phone number I was using. I informed that that I used a borrowed phone because I did not trust them. We went around and around with my finally telling them that I was going to call Target back directly using the phone number on my old card. They hung up. Interestingly, when I did call Target and was finally put through to the fraud prevention department, the initial prompts were identical with the suspected spam operation's prompts!
I received 14 calls from this number beginning 12/9/10.
I have recieved several calls from this number. The first few numbers came up on call id as "Target Collections", and they even left a message on the answering machine. But it seems when they realized that we were not going to answer they began to block their caller id so that only the phone number came up.
Target National Bank. They keep calling with "an important business matter" and a different x number and different caller each time.
this # is for Target VISA collections
Target Sucks, they are one of the worst companies when it comes to customer service, when they error on your credit report forget it ever being removed even if you can prove they in fact wrong.
If you have a problem with target call the CEO.
If you have means to block them, than do.. NO ONE needs to be harrast for a wrong phone number
Just don't answer, not worth my time. If they want to say something they can E-mail me or send a letter, I don't even shop there much less have one of their cards.
They called today because of "suspicious" activity on my account. I made an online purchase on the card, which I usually don't do, and it alerted the system. I called back and confirmed the activity--not a big deal. I appreciate them alerting me if they think something is wrong.
Caller id shows 952-852-0003 or it shows: UNKNOWN NUMBER. Some days they call me about 5 to 10 times.
Most of the time , they hang up without saying anything. Allegedly, they represent target.
They just picked the right name: target. I like their name. Makes me want to go hunting.
If this is Target...okay, sure I was late with my payment...but it's been made now. If that's what they're calling about maybe they ought to check the account records before harassing someone. They've been calling from about 4 different phone numbers, at least 5 times today and last call they left a message on my machine finally to identify themselves.
They call all the time! This should be outlawed
I received like 5 calls a day from tons of different numbers that were all Target about the card. They never left a message but when i called back it was for the Target credit card so I called finally and told them I had never had a Target credit card and so she checked my number and it was under some weird name. It was easy to get my number taken off, just told her it wasnt mine and they stopped.
Called and left a message saying they wanted to verify charges made to my account recently. Don't know why they'd want to verify a charge I made last night for $21, especially since my account is paid every month on time and I'm not over my limit or anything. Not sure what to do about this, if maybe this is a hoax or something by someone trying to get my account information. They've never called me before.
These guys have no heart.. all these collection agencys dont care.. my dad had a freakin stroke while on the phone with one of these assholes. Even after this guy was told that he was collapsed on all he had to say was " well he should have paid his bills" ..
The people who are being harrassed by these numbers (companies) should contact their elected officials and file a . complaint. Such as -- the govenor's hotline for starters. It is ignort for them to keep calling when I don't have the money to pay them at this time. Why? because American companies got greedy and stold my money with their high prices. Stop using your credit cards. If you have the money to pay off your redit card every month then you don't need one. Teach others not to use them. Beware they are traps for the low income people. I will never own another credit card.
I pick up the phone and hear dead silence-air!!!! How irritating is that?
Ok, everyone else here seems to be getting called by this number because they're overdue on a target card balance. Fair enough. But I've never been late with them and paid off my last statement well in advance of the due date. Of course they never leave a message.
Twice I've spoken to this caller and they have a very heavy Indian accent. Nice to know that in these tough economic times that TARGET IS OUTSOURCING TO INDIA INSTEAD OF GIVING THE WORK TO AN AMERICN COMPANY WITH AMERICAN EMPLOYEES!!!!
Same thing they call and ask for "Bobby". I am irate!!
i have gotten 12 calls in the last 4 hours and nobody is there
I bet these jerks work with NCO Financial. These calls started when I told NCO Financial to go jump in the lake..
Target calls, using different numbers, 10 times a day. Never leaving a message nor saying anything when I do pick up the phone. This business of calling so many times a day is against the law. Why doesn't the FTC do anything about it?????
I believe this caller is from Target. I do owe them money. However, they have already called 5 times today, about every hour; they have called at least 6 times a day for the past several days. At what point is it harassment? I have already told them via my on-line statement that I'd make small payments to catch my account up to date. Twice today they have waited for the message to kick in, but they do not leave a message. I will complain directly to Target.
I get calls on my cell from this company and many other numbers which I have seen reported as target as well. I DO NOT HAVE A TARGET CARD, AND I rarely even shop there. I will not be shopping there in the future because of this!!!!
Target Department Store Collections
This collection agency calls incessantly throughout the day. Six times so far today. Eight times yesterday. They are asking for someone I've never heard of and who probably had my cell phone number before me. They are jeopardizing my job because the phone rings constantly while I'm at work. If I turn off my ringer, the phone beeps at me constantly indicating that I've got a missed call. I asked them to stop calling my number. They told me they have no way of removing my number from their automated list unless I can give them the account number of the person I've never heard of. They are the company with that information, yet they are unwilling to look through their own records. I am a totally innocent person whose livelihood is being jeopardized.
I have received repeated calls from this number for the last three months, each time asking for a "Bobbi Sue". I tell the caller each time that NO ONE BY THAT NAME IS AT THIS NUMBER, but they don't get it. The next call will find me reporting this to the Better Business Bureau.
I just save the #'s and change the ring tone to vibrate or silent.
AGAIN, I DON'T HAVE A TARGET ACCOUNT, and never did
They don't listen, they just change phone #'s and call anyways.
STOP CALLING THOSE OF US WITHOUT YOUR DAMN CARD
Getting sick of these calls.
Don't have their credit card and I will not shop there again.
Answer phone and nothing, and they don't leave messages.
I called each one and they said TARGET.
Now there's another one, TARGET calling from a different #, up to 5 #'s now.
STOP CALLING ME
This number is from Target National Bank. My question to you all is, if they are supposedly closed on holidays like Memorial day, then why did they call me? because when i called back, the message said they were closed for the holiday. liars.
Called at 8:39am on Memorial Day. How low is that?
I get this call regularly on my cell phone. I'm looking for a way to stop it, and it looks like there are a couple of suggestions on this list.
For those who say that the 'morons' should just pay their Target bill, you obviously haven't considered that:
1) A lot of people getting this call never had a Target card. I've never had one. And if this is how they treat their customers, I never will.
2) Whenever I've answered, there's no one there. So if there's some legitimate problem that I'm responsible for, there's no way for me to know that.
call everyday at least two times a day even called on mothers day three times..... wrong number for a target card////I dont even have a target card......
PLEASE EXCUSE ME FROM TYPING IN UPPER CASES. THIS IS A SCAM. A ATTEMPT TO STEAL YOUR IDENTITY. I HAVE BEEN RECIEVING CALLS FROM THEM FOR TWO STRAIGHT MONTHS, DID NOT ANSWER DUE TO UNVALIABLE BEING IN CALLER ID. THEN I RECEIVED ANOTHER CALL WITH THE NUMBER OF 561 482-7092 FROM BOCCA, FL. GOT SICK OF TWO CALLS EACH DAY FOR THE TWO MONTHS WITH THREE RINGS UNTIL I ANSWERED ON 04/21/08. IT WAS A RECORDED MESSAGE FROM A COMPANY CLAIMING TO BE ACCOUNT SERVICES GIVING ME THE OPTION OF PRESSING 1 TO SAVE ON MY CREDIT RATE OR 2 TO NOT RECEIVE ANY FURTHER NOTICES. I QUICKLY PRESS 2 TO NOT RECIEVE ANY FURTHER NOTICES. GUESS WHAT? THAT WAS ON 4/18/08 FRIDAY. IT IS 4/21/08 AND THEY ARE AREADY CALLING ME AGAIN. AFTER REVIEWING THIS SITE ON 4/18/08, I KNEW THE TWO CALLS I RECIEVED TODAY WERE FROM THE SAME SCAM. THE NUMBERS TODAY 4/21/08 SHOWED 305 392-9247 (MIAMI, FL) WHICH BY THE WAY IS ALREADY DISCONNECTED AND 202 000-0000
(UNAVAILABLE). PEOPLE THIS IS SERIOUS!!!!. THE FIRST THING TO DO IS GO TO YOUR PHONE COMPANY. TELL THEM YOU SOMEONE IS ATTEMPTING TO STEAL YOUR IDENITIY AND USING BOGUS CALLER ID NUMBERS,(ALL OF THEIR NUMBERS THEY CALL FROM ARE BOGUS).THEN TELL THEM YOU NEED TO TRACE THE NUMBER.ONCE THE NUMBER IS TRACED YOU NEED TO FILE A POLICE REPORT ABOUT AN IDENITIY THEFT. DON'T LET THEM PUSH YOU AWAY (POLICE DEPT) AS THIS IS SERIOUS. WHILE MOST DEPARTMENTS WILL PUT MOST RESOURCES IN LOCAL DWI'S, THIS IS A PERSONAL SAFETY ISSUE. I WILL POST AGAIN TO LET YOU KNOW THE PROGRESS BUT WE MUST ALL DO THE SAME TO BRING A QUICK CLOSE TO THIS SCAM!!!! . THANKS FOR SITES LIKE THIS.
i didnt answer,but like with others,it says minnesota with the phone number being,617 307 5811
I don't have any credit cards, my mortgage and car payments are on time, and yet these scumbags have been calling at least twice a day. I don't answer telephone numbers I don't recognize, however, but I'll check them on the Intertubes if they keep calling.
This one looks like it's being used for mortgage refinancing loans or something. They might be credit card collecting but since nobody in my family has cards, they have to be some other criminal enterprise.
Target calling....8am on a SATURDAY
my account is paid and current...this is ridiculous.
They keep calling for a person who used to have MY number and when I tell them they just call again a few hrs later
I called the number back & recieved a recording of " Thanks, for calling target acct.s service's.."
This number corrseponds to Target Account Services. One of the operators is Robin and the supervisor is Sarah.
Also, one call from them asked me to confirm my social security number. I WILL NEVER GIVE THAT NUMBER OUT TO A MACHINE! Are you kidding me?
They call me CONSTANTLY. I owe them about $25 and they still call all the time. It's never a person. Sometimes the machine says something, sometimes it just makes machine noises at me. Don't pick up from this number, it's a waste of minutes. I am very angry with them for harrassing me like this.
I owe a whopping $26, and they call 6+ times a day even though the check is in the mail!
Calls my work number at least once a day.
Ok this is just dumb.
Send a letter of CEASE AND DESIST to Target financial services. They have to stop calling you. If they don't they are breaking the law and must be reported to the BBB for herassment.
This works either if you are or are not delinquent. If you actually are delinquent but you need peace of mind, this is a good way to go.
They Keep calling me, no voicemail. I don't even have a Target Credit Card. I call them and get a recording.
phone rang twice---I answered----dead air
these people are relentless and ridiculous. i've recieved over 50 calls in one week from this number. at 6 in the morning up untill about 11pm at night. i dont know where they do there c alling from but they have no common sense about phone rules becuse i have had just a ridiculous time since these calls started coming in. sunday mornings, sat. nights, dosent matter. im about to call my phone company and have the number blocked because they have no business to be calling me. especially since it isnt a human doing the calling and they dont have ANYTHING to say!! "please hold" i never hold for someone who called me. if you need to get ahold of me SO BAD that you call me 7 times in one day, youd be able to leave a message or have a human actually dial the number. i have a card with them but i do all my bill paying online and it is always paid ontime. im going to cut this card up, pay it off, and find a new place to shop!! there return policy SUCKS anyways!!!
They keep calling....at one time they said they were a debt consolidation, one time Bank of America. I just tell them to stop calling. Now, I just do not answer. They have called at 6:30am before.
Said "Out of Area" and only rang three times. By time we found the phone they had hung up. Good riddance!
Target Credit Card
They just called, I didn't answer, but googled to find out who it was. I don't even have a credit card!
i get a call from this same company about 3 times a day and on weekends and i keep telling them the same thing. it is very up setting that they call everyday. i have told them my situation and they keep calling out of no respect for that. i am only behind one month and after i pay this i will cancel my account because they are ridiculous.
I got a call today, and had someone been on the other end I could have told them that I paid it but no ones there, oh well
This number keeps calling my work phone. Never leaves a message and based on all the comments I have seen here, I don't bother picking up. They call at all hours and all days including weekends. Very annoying!
It's Target alright! Bastard's fucked up on my bill and their still trying to get more money out of me before my next bill is even due! I noticed comment's about them asking to set up check by phone payment's and they have done this with me as well when they call from a diffren't number...I guess they are trying to get tricky now? Shit head's!
This number has called four times today and never leaves a message. If I pick up, no one is on the line.
I received two phone calls from this number on a SUNDAY! When I answer the phone, NO ONE will say anything. Speak and DON'T you call me on a SUNDAY!
Called 3 times in one day
did not answer/will not answer
called on cell # so caller id name, just #
have never had account with Target
They call 5 or more times a week. We never answer because we think it's a scam. They never leave a message.
Target Card Services
Calls at least 10 times a day. If it is Target, shouldn't call here. I don't have a Target card.They let it ring about 12 times and I have a baby sleeping most of the time. If they are trying to sell something this is NOT the right way!
Sounds like a lot of illegal phone calls to me. And to Amber on 5/20--these callers cannot legally call after 9pm (or before 8am).
This number calls twice evryday. Hangs up automatically when answered.
Target Collections calls regularly at 8:02am to 8:58pm told them to cease and desist and put me on the do not call list but they continue to call my cell phone at all hours of the day.
This was Target looking for someone who had my cell phone number before me. I called them and explained that I had no credit card with Target, and that the person they were looking for no longer had this number. They were very polite, apologized for the inconvenience, and said they would remove my cell number from this person's account.
IT'S TARGET. THEY ARE CALLING. MY ACCOUNT IS NOT PAST DUE. I ONLY OWE A BALANCE OF $24.00 I'M PAYING THIS OFF AND THEY CAN HAVE THEIR STUPID CARD. THIS IS RIDICULOUS.
i wonder how long it takes Target to realize Henry or Maria Mendoza ain't lived here for the last 3 months, yet they call everyday asking for them and we tell them the same thing. They don't get it
They kept calling my home and they wanted to know why I did not activate my card.
It is a computer recording for target, all it back enter your card number and talk to someone and they can fix it. I paid my bill a week ago but it has not got to their system yet.
they have called several times but did not leave a message. When I return the call all it was ring.
keep getting calls but leaves no message.
Called me but answer machine answered and they didn't leave a message.
Asked for the wrong person! And when corrected did not answer!! So I hung UP!!!
Not sure why Target collections is calling. We have a Target store card but it has a $0.00 balance.
Got this call with "please wait and an operator will be with you shortly"; my son waited and found out it was from Target. I have no balance on my Target card and haven't used it in about 1 1/2 years...no reason for them to be calling me, so he hung up. This number has called back twice since the first one last week.
Caller ID hit 7/27/07
Caller ID hit 7/24/07
target collections. they call about a hundred times a day.
it was a automated person saying "this is an important call from target bank services. they said this about 6 times and no human ever came on, so i finally hung up.
I would really like these people to STOP calling. I understand it is Target but I am not interested in anything else they might have to offer. I have had the same experiences as the others listed.
I zapped the call with a program named PHONETRAY Free. It's a great little program to stop this stuff....Google it.
I too have a current target account, so not sure why they are calling.
Caller ID hit 7/22/07
Target National Bank... I zapped them with a program named PHONETRAY-FREE that I found in a Google search.
Target Account Services
this is the 3rd different number from which they've called me - only figured it out by using this site. also called from 612-307-5811 and 612-307-8004. the 888# is the one they used when they called me 3 times in one day. the 612#s were used on consecutive days, once per day. geez louise - i'll pay when i can! i also hate the fact that they don't leave a message. sooooo annoying.
never answer this phone spammer. What an idot
I got called for the 5th time today--guess what? I don't have a Target card--wonder why they are harassing me?
I didn't know the number, so I did not answer it and let the answering machine pick it up. They hung up without saying a word.
Does anyone else think that the people logging on here calling people names and being sarcastic might work for the collection agency that is calling? In this case Target. Otherwise, why would they even check the number on this website? And why would they be so angry about it? Yep. These people are definitely the scumbags that are paid to call and harrass people. Caller ID combined with this site is the BEST thing that ever happened to those of us who occasionally get a bit behind.
They will not stop calling 3-4 times a day, asking for someone I do not even know. Tried to explain they have the wrong number and this is a new cell number for me. But they still keep calling.
Every working day at 11:30, I received this call, when I pick up, then it hang up.
Keeps calling me, no voicemail. I don't have a Target Credit Card.
It's target card services. You would only know this if you call the number back (which I often don't when its a number I don't know). They NEVER leave a message and when you do answer the call it is either a "please hold" recording or it disconnects. So yes, maybe it's about an overdue bill, but if Target would just leave a message or actually have a real person there when the call is answered maybe there wouldn't be any confusion!
they call me 3 times a day for whoever used to have the number, leaving no messages of course. i also got calls from some target in minnesota.
They have called me up to 5 times in a day
Pay your Target bill!!
Current on all payments...not sure why they don't leave a message
I'm assuming from the responses here that it was Target Financial Services that called me. This was the third time I've been contacted by them in the last 24 hours -- though the first two times were from a Minneapolis/St. Paul area code. They left a voice mail I haven't been able to check as of yet. I have no account with Target Financial, nor do I have an interest in opening an account with them. My number is unlisted and yet they have it. FTW???
Received a call from this number on my cell phone. I did not answer the call as I did not recognize the number. No message was left. My phone number is listed on the national Do Not Call list.
This is Target Guest Card's collections
Calls every 20-60 minutes. Extremely annoying, just answer and hang up.
This company calls about 2 times a day even on Saturday and Sunday. Early in the morning too! The latest they have called is 10pm...I have two kids, they NEVER leave a message...I am getting tired of it
Wow, such anger. Makes you wonder why these Moron guys even bothered to look this number up and post. Talk about needing a life!
I answered this call yesterday and a woman that barely spoke english asked for Brian, when I said there is no one here by that name they asked for DeAnn, then she asked for Diane at that point I can't talk and hung up on her. She never identified herself of where she was calling from.
This is absolutely ridiculous.
It's Target. And they're calling me about a credit card bill that isn't due for another two weeks.
How anal retentive is that.
This number has called several times in the past two weeks. I did not answer and they never leave a message.
calls several times a day, never leaves a message, and I know I paid my target bill
calls twice daily. name unknown. never leave a message.
Calls daily. My credit card is paid and not delinquent. Called on a Saturday morning at 8:30 am.
calls on a daily basis.Never responds when I do answer the phone, I usually dont answer unknowm #. Been calling for 2 weeks, 1-3 times a day
It is target calling, but I waited various times because I don't have a Target account. But it rings a couple times and then hangs up...
called 03/02/07 at 1:32 pm.
DON'T ANSWER IF YOU DIDNT PAY YOUR BILL :)
Call from Target (rep's name is Miko) - about my Target Visa. Asked me to setup a check by phone. I paid the balance off the previous day, and then Miko politely said thank you.
To the idiots who keep saying you "morons" it's Target calling: When the number calls, it hangs up before you can answer it or when you answer you get the stupid recording that says "standby for an important call" and then it clicks and hangs up or just silence. NEVER has the number been identified by the caller/automated caller as Target or any one else. It is calling like this purely for harrassment - no one has any intention of talking to who they are calling. It's a stupid racket run by idiotic morons like the retards who are calling people receiving the calls "morons." It's obvious who the morons are here! YOU need to get a life -- how pathetic and cowardly you are. What a low-life pathetic job you have! &$*% off!
called me- i answered and the other line was silent. I waited for about a minute at which point there was a beep and the line disconnected.
These people called me almost everyday, a few times a day. It started to get really annoying.
Keeps asking for Natasha but its the wrong number. Called about 6 times in the last 3 weeks.
Called on 12-06 & 12-07 of 2006.
12-06 Times: 3:59pm & 7:57pm
12-07 Times (so far): 8:10am & 10:24am
They never leave messages on the answering machine or voicemail.
requeting to speek to "Isabel Guana" a for the 5th time today.
Reports number are "Unknown" - caller leaves no messages
By the way, MB solved this one - the first guy on the list, but I guess none of you read anything on here before posting.
I don't know what to do, this number called me too. Of course, I didn't pay my Target bill for months and months - but why would this number call me? Do they want me to pay them the money I owe them or something???????????????????????? MORONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are a bunch of morons if you are that scared and disturbed that some number called you that you don't recognize. Get a life. Call the fucking number - it's friendly old Target. Morons...
You must not have even tried calling it back. It's Target credit services - pay your target card bill and they won't call you. ;o)
tried to call me 3 times
This number keeps calling my cell phone at least 5x/day and does not leave a message.
Same # calls and do not say anything ... then hangs up
This is Target Account services
Target credit card collections.
This number has been calling my cell phone for the past 2 weeks about three times a day and will not leave any messages.
this # called my cell. answered and they hung up.
Just got a call from this number and from the looks of the other comments, I am glad I did not answer.
Have received calls from this number several times on my cell phone. I don't give my cell phone to any banks or lenders, so I'm not sure who is calling. I do not answer the call and no message is left.
I've gotten calls from this number almost every day for the past few months. Some days I get several calls from this number. The first few times I answered the call, there was nothing on the other side of the line and then the call would be disconnected. Haven't answered it since.
This number calls our number 20 times a month
Just had a recording "Please standby for an important call." Repeated about 4 times, then it hung up.
