File a wireless complaint at FCC.gov eilene. Cell phones are considered PRIVATE! You pay for the data
so businesses/telemarketers are FORBIDDEN to call cell phones UNLESS you give them permission to do so!
You should also register your numbers on the do not call list, that's why it's in place, so you can document
those who violate it...report them to FCC/FTC both!

Got a call about my "account". I DO NOT HAVE an E-Trade account. They lady wanted sensitive information. I told her she sounded like a scam. After a few hems and haws, she said I did not have an account. Was I a victim of identity theft? Then she wanted last 4 SS numbers. I refused. Then she said "The account is closed, so it's no problem. We detected odd activity. I asked her what CITY the account was opened in. No, she could not tell me that.

I explained that THEY called ME.

Some time before, I needed to buy a house for my organization but I didn't earn enough money and couldn't buy anything. Thank goodness my father suggested to get the mortgage loans at trustworthy bank. So, I acted that and used to be satisfied with my short term loan.

This is a "credit card services" co. I pressed "1" to tell them to stop calling, and was immediately disconnected. I too am on the Do Not Call registry and report every one of these calls. It does not seem to help.

Cherryl: I don't think your neighbor is doing this, unless he has a grudge against a lot of people. So maybe you can rest easier knowing that. But ol' Juan is still a pain in the ass, with the hangup calls and such.

November 11th, 2011 Jerry R. WI

It is from some credit card verification services offering you a chance to lower your credit card interest rates.

November 10th, 2011 Cherryl Walker

I have been listed with "Do Not Call" for over 4 years now. That has held steady until this last year. Over the past few months, I have been bombarded with calls from Card Services. I have reason to believe that a "neighbor", Rorbert C., an attorney, has set this up to harass me. (He and I are under a peace bond not to speak to each other unless a uniformed police officer is present.) What makes it worse is that he infests the house right next door and due south of me. So, he gets at me through the telephone.This has happened before, and then slacked off for a while. Clemenz has connections with businesses in Mexico and Venezuela. That is probably why the name Juan Escobido has shown up. This past Monday, I got four calls from card services. I have listened to one message only, and before I could reply, the connection was ended. Also, I have reason to believe that a Hispanic name may have been used because I am working with the local police to track down a drug ring operating in my neighborhood, that also has connections to Mexico and Venezuela. Unfortunately, these kingpins have political connections and are very well shielded. And because I am on their trail, they are attacking me.

Nothing will be done about it because Black Bush is our dictator. Dictator Black Bush also known as Obama, is worried about getting reelected. I am going to start to call forward ALL of my calls outside the area code, to Democrap Ed Towns who wants to add legislation for them to legally call you on your cell phone. Watch this video www.youtube.com

If you don't want to utilize Call Fowarding record all of their calls and post them on YouTube, in which I like to do. I hope one of those jerks sues me because I am execution proof, and not only that so I can countersue them!

It would help if all of yall would file a complaint at the National Do Not Call Registry at complaints.donotcall.gov the link is also found at the bottom of this page, for I finished filing my complaint with them and it is easy to do. They have over 400 numbers that they call from !!! So every body do your part and file those complaints ! The more complaints filed, then hopefully something will be done about it. If no complaints are filed, that means nothing done ! Thanks !

Gee, these are by far the worst experiences I've found on these jerks. I thought I had it bad. I've been bombarded with calls from the 866-265-7685 line, calling multiple times a day often inconveniently and never leaving a freaking message. If it were sooo "important", leave a message, right? It's my cell they've got a hold of too and I really don't want to have to change my number. Recently I've dialed them back and they don't even answer with a business name and like many here have mentioned, it's definitely overseas.

7/13/2010 8:28am Silent/Dead air call to Line 3
Caller ID = MCI Intrnatl 201-520-9343

7/13/2010 10:17am call to Line 3 Details to follow:
Caller ID = MCI Intrnatl 201-520-9343 - Alex called and identified himself as being from American Diabetic Assistance. He asked if I was Penny C. He said if I answered some questions I may qualify for a talking glucose meter. Some questions he asked included: do I have diabetes, if I had the Red, White & Blue Medicare Card, if I spent $5 or more per month on out of pocket on diabetic supplies. I asked him for a phone number where I could call them back and he gave me the bogus 201-520-9343 number. I explained that that number did not accept incoming calls and asked for a working number; he refused to supply one. He continued to ask me to accept another call from someone else who would call at a later time. I asked for the company website and he could not provide me with a web address. I asked for a supervisor and he indicated that he would be connecting me with Albert Smith.
Another agent came onto the line and identified himself as Albert Smith, supervisor over telemarketing. During our discussion, I asked Albert for a working phone number to contact his ‘company’ – he refused to supply another number. I asked for the mailing address of his company and he replied, “We are located in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “ When pressed for the address, he refused to supply the actual street address. I indicated that without the most basic information about his company, I would not be interested in doing business with them and I asked Albert to remove our contact number from their database and place it on DO NOT CALL. Albert verified that he would remove our number from their database, assured me that this would be done immediately and we disconnected. We will let time determine if we have been removed from their calling list. - Sheree
In the recent past, I have phoned American Diabetic Assistance (found their website) and they disavow any knowledge of this telemarking racket. When I called I was informed that they are in the process of changing their name. I would bet this scammer and the bad publicity/reputation that is sure to follow is the reason for that name change.

have tried to answer this call several times and finally got someone to answer me. They asked for my husband who passed away five years ago. When I told them he wasn't here and asked him to remove my number he said hold on "does anyone in your home have diabetes?" I said no. Please remove my number from your list. Still have no idea who they are.

I had a call yesterday, and again today from this number. I was asked if anyone in the household has diabetes. When I answered "no", the caller ( female?) seemed satisfied, and hung up. During yesterday's call, I became angry, as I've been getting a lot of calls from this number and told the person ( sounded male ) to "take me off your fucking list". His response was, "You want me to fuck your wife?".......since these calls are so very similar to other calls I've had from some company identified on the caller ID as "NOVO", I think they may be from the same source. NOVO is a seller of diabetic medical supplies.

United Health Services calling, for a survey/sale, "Do you have diabetes?" to a private phone number on the do not call list. These tele-marketers seem to be from the same business with multiple phone exchanges. Can't block them when they call from a different exhange each time. Caller wouldn't provide her name nor her tele-marketing company. Would LOVE to have someone pass on this information of this company's name and address.

I RECEIVED 23 CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER TODAY APRIL 14, 2009. I ANSWERED ON THE 24TH CALL. I INFORMED TOLD THEM THAT THE CALL WAS BEING RECORDED. THE MAN ON THE LINE HAD A VERY HEAVY ACCENT (INDIAN). HE ASKED FOR MY 10 YEAR OLD SON, BY NAME. I ASKED WHY HE WANTED TO TALK TO MY 10 YEAR OLD SON. HE GAVE ME SOME B/S THAT HE OWED $1800.00 ON A SEARS CREDIT CARD. I AGAIN INFORMED HIM THAT MY SON WAS 10 YEARS OLD AND TOLD HIM TO STOP CALLING MY NUMBER. HE INFORMED ME THAT HE WOULD CALL AS MANY TIMES AS HE WANTED AND THAT THERE WAS NOTHING THAT I COULD DO. I TOLD HIM THAT I WOULD FILE A REPORT WITH THE FBI/ATTORNEY GENERAL/BBB/DO NOT CALL REGISTER. WHICH I HAVE. HE CALLED SEVERAL MORE TIMES AND LEFT SOME VERY NASTY MESSAGES ON MY VOICE MAIL. SHOULD HE BE ON THE NATIONAL SEX OFFENDERS REGISTER. HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY CALLS TODAY. WHAT KIND OF SCAM ARE THEY RUNNING?

I mean how can you take anyone seriously anyway, who with a thick Indian accent, claims to be Brian Jackson! You have got to be kidding me! What a tossa. Anyway - I feel everyone else's pain and frustration, just seems that nothing can ever be done quick enough by authorities to stop this kind of invasion of privacy. I mean here I am in Australia, at home with a silent telephone number (not published) getting calls from these turds! Whats the world coming to!!

January 22nd, 2009 2Smart4Them ME

THESE GUYS ARE A TOTAL SCAM AND NOT THE REAL THING. DO NOT VARIFY ANY INFORMATION FOR THEM. THEY CALLED ME AND SAID I HAD AN OUTSTANDING BALANCE ON ONE OF MY CREDIT CARDS AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN DELINQUENT ON AN ACCOUNT, AND THEY KEPT TRYING TO GET ME TO VARIFY THE LAST 4 NUMBERS OF MY CREDIT CARD (HOW DUMB DO I LOOK THROUGH THE PHONE LOL). ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS PAY FOR A CREDIT REPORT ON YOU AND THEY HAVE ACCESS TO WHAT YOU ARE DELINQUENT ON, AND IF THEY ARE A LAGITIMATE COMPANY THEY WOULD NOT NEED TO VARIFY ANY INFORMATION BECAUSE THE COMPANY THEY ARE COLLECTING FOR HAS ALREADY PROVIDED ALL THAT. A CREDIT REPORT SHOWS ALL ACCOUNT NUMBERS AND SSI NUMBERS EXCEPT FOR THE LAST 4 DIGITS, SO NEVER GIVE THOSE OUT TO ANYONE OVER THE PHONE. I DON'T CARE IF YOU ARE DELINQUENT DO NOT VARIFY ANYTHING FOR THEM, AND IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THEN CHANGE/CANCEL EVERYTHING IMMEDIATELY AND MAKE SURE YOU WATCH YOUR CREDIT BECAUSE YOU HAVE SET YOURSELF UP FOR IDENTITY THEFT AND CREDIT CARD FRAUD.

I CALLED TO REPORT THEM TO MY LOCAL BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU, AND THEY GAVE ME A TOLL FREE NUMBER OF A FRAUD DEVISION THAT I NEEDED TO FILE A CLAIM WITH, SO EVERYONE SHOULD BE CALLING TO REPORT THEM EVERYTIME THEY CALL YOU.

Call repeatedly several times a day. Starts early in the morning and continues into the evening, when you answer they will ask for a name, when you ask who is this they say WHO IS THIS and are NASTY - tell them they have the wrong number and they continue to call... Now they continue to call and HANG UP. I've called the number back and they give me the name of the person they are looking for - I tell them it's the wrong number but they are not removing my number from the call list and continue to call !!!!! As others state they all have accents and are VERY RUDE !!!

They call at work and at home. Indian men leave messages saying it is an important message and that I should return his call if I want to keep my personal matters private. He doesn't state the company name or what the important matter is. He also calls from the 210 number, but leaves an 800 number to reach him back.

I have been receiving "unknown caller" calls for the past couple of months.. when I answer, no one is here. Now, starting today, I have been receiving calls from 201-210-3618. The calls started around 5 pm.. and we received 2 calls within 2 minutes, My daughter had answered the phone. When she said I was not at home (which I wasn't) he was extremly rude to her, saying he knew I was there and I had better talk to him!

Tonight at 7:00 the same man (with an East Indian accent) called. He left a message and proceeded to call me 3 times within 5 minutes leaving a nasty message each time. He stated that he knew I was listening to him and that avoiding the call would do no good. He then called back and said that he had spoken to my neighbors and gave me the names of my neighbors!

What can I do to stop this harrassment other than unplug my phone?

Thanks to whocalled.us I knew this was a scam, and sure enough he repeated the same script that others listed below. IT was a man with a heavy middle eastern accent, who said I had an outstanding balance on a credit card (I think he said it was a GAP card - which I never owned). When I asked to be put on 'do not call list', he got belligerent and said "no". I told him "do not call here again" and hung up. We'll see if that worked or not. Also reported to donotcall.gov if that helps.

kept getting calls from this number on my cell phone..sometimes up to 3 times a day and its been going on for the past 3 weeks. never answered but they left messages saying that it was important i called them back. it was about a business matter. gave me a 1 800 number and an extension. said his name was Rocky Sensor or something and he was extremely rude. told me that i have to call him back and i really need to stop ignoring the phone calls and call him back immediately. one day they called and i accidently answered it and then hung up right away. as soon as i hung up they called right back within the matter a second. finally ended up calling my cell phone provider Verizon. turns out they have a nuisance phone call program for free that you can add to your account which will block certain numbers...been living in peace ever since ive done that

Called my phone yesterday. I knew who it was because they had called twice already seeking my husband. Well, yesterday they called and I was at doctor's office. I answered and they asked for my husband. I said, "may I ask who is speaking?" They said, "This is regarding a recent payment. Can I speak with him?" (with a lovely attitude, I may add). I said, "no" and hung up. Pisses me off when someone won't identify what company they are with.

Possible Solutions!

These calls were driving me crazy. I was even thinking about changing my phone number. However, I recently got a Panasonic phone which has a very nice feature called “Block Calls”. Also, it has a feature called “Night mode” which you can use to select a span of time during which the handset will not ring. FYI, the model of the phone is Panasonic KX-TG9341. There are other models which differ in the number of extra handsets and key pad on the base unit but all have the same nice features to deal with unwanted calls.

Also Grandcentral (company now owned by Google) has a very nice service to manage your phone number(s), and one of the many features is “Block Callers”. It looks like Google will offer this service for free in the near future. You can make a reservation by going to:
www.grandcentral.com

I hope this helps someone.

FINALLY, I found out who it is!!!! It's Salute Visa, calling to report that if I mailed in a payment, it didn't get to them due to THEIR PROCESSING ERROR. I got this in a letter several days ago. Salute & Tribute are the ones who sent out these letters. GLAD TO KNOW who it is, FINALLY! Here's the post I left previously. Again, Salute Visa calling to report that they screwed up if I mailed in a payment.

Called them back- some cheesy music. Message in a weird voice requesting that I kindly stay on line (?!), and thanked me for calling. States that all representatives are handling other customers, my call is valuable to them, and to keep holding, or dial 1 to leave a msg and have them call me back. Like hell! This number keeps calling me... I want to know who it is! I stayed on hold for about 5 mins. I'll try again later.

They keep leaving msg "Will you call......". They do not know who they want to call them back. They call several times a day. Tryed to block the number but telephone company says that you can not block that number. I do not owe anyone any money.

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

Can you stop a debt collector from contacting you?
You can stop a debt collector from contacting you by writing a letter to the collector telling them to stop. Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again except to say there will be no further contact or to notify you that the debt collector or the creditor intends to take some specific action. Please note, however, that sending such a letter to a collector does not make the debt go away if you actually owe it. You could still be sued by the debt collector or your original creditor.

August 20th, 2008 Sherrie AZ

They called back the next day saying they were needed to speak with either my husband or myself. Funny thing is when my husband spoke with them the day before, he never gave them persmission to speak with me (this is what they have been requiring before they would tell me what the call was about. My husband had refused to give them money the day before because the bill they were quoting was outrageous. These calls have been goign on for months.

August 20th, 2008 Sherrie AZ

People from the company continue to call three to four times a day. They will only speak with my husband, never with me. They are rude, pushy, aggressive and never listen.

we get a call from this number about 2 times a day. The message says to call 866-265-8675. If you call this number it says that the number has been changed to 900-622-8000. This is a scam. I will have this number blocked. I am not confident that any one or any agency will do anything about it.

(201)210-3618 calls my house repeatedly.
Forever they just left a recorded message, and even if I answered, I got the message. Today they called, but I answered ana human, yes, with a foreign accent, answered and asked for somebody who doesn't live here.
When I said so, he started with an address that wasn't mine, so I told him to stop calling. About an hour later, they called back, and the same person, or a very similar accent, asked for the same name again.
I gave him a piece of my mind and hung up.
You know, if the government can tap phone calls, can't they do something about garbage like this???

July 8th, 2008 gtf OR

Phone calls begin at 7 AM (even on weekends)-middle eastern accent-informed him multiple times the person he's looking for is not at this number- phone calls continue.

June 24th, 2008 joe TX

Eastern Indian sounding male called asn ask me to contact a "neighbor", to have them return a long distant call. He gave a name, but I have forgotten it, I told him I didn't know the person, he said that they lived on Cumberlin St. (which is about 3 miles from my address). I declined and he said thank you and hung up. He was very polite throughout the conversation.

June 23rd, 2008 Jim M FL

Finally, after 23 days of telephone calls I find out who is behind these calls and where they are located here in the USA. It is a company known as Aegis Receivables Management Inc (but they still hide behind a PO Box. Their mailing address is PO Box 3458 San Rafael, CA 94912-3458 ---- 1-800-265-2769. They are but one of several (13 so far) that are operating under "Sherman Companies", which is operating under several names in several states. (copy and paste this link to a webpage that discusses them in full -- householdwatch.com

Their letterhead clearly states that they were formerly known as Global Vantedge Inc. (a company in India that "specializes" in harassing phone calls (from 201-210-3618) with their broken English-speaking employees. They think they are exempt from the Fair Credit laws of the USA but if you call or write the Sect. of State, Department of Corporations, for the state of New Jersey, they can act on your complaint...201-210-3618 is a telephone that the company is linked to in Newark, NJ.

Until such time that stop calling to collect a bill from a person that does not live in my home I will keep my trusty whistle right next to the phone. I was using a gas operated boat safety Air-horn but I ran out of the small Freon cans (auto A/C gas) used to power it

June 18th, 2008 Karlett AZ

This company not only called my house phone, but then turned around and called my cell phone! I have never heard of this company and I'm irritated that they called the house, the cell, then the house again. All in less than 5 mins!

May 13th, 2008 Missy TX

John Parker from Global Vantage left me a voice message. I "supposedly" owe them something. They have threatened to contact my relatives and neighbors to help them locate me. I don't have any debt!

Global Vantage Collection agency. Person they call does not live here. 9 calls this morning alone. They will not listen.

May 6th, 2008 SSB CO

Same as another person on this list -- get this call several times a week. A message is left on the answering machine saying "it is important that you return this call." Do people really believe they should return these calls?

May 6th, 2008 CB IN

Wow... I don't know who these people are, but the message that they left sounded like they were speaking through an electronic voice scrambler.... not very professional!

April 17th, 2008 doesnt matter SC

just called the california # 415-925-2735, talked to a lady there and she took me off of this rediculous indians list "kevin johnson" lmfao. anyone who gets this kind of call from the new jersey number 201-210-3618 should call the other number and get removed from the list.

April 13th, 2008 DJ KY

Started 2007, continued into this year. Some type of collection agency looking for a lady that has never lived at this address since the house was built (several years). I will also add that I do not know this person nor have I ever heard of the person. Had discussions on almost every call, explaining the above, but they call back over and over. One caller had "Indian" accent. Promised not to call any more. So much for "promises"! Where is "Do Not Call" help with these type calls.

April 12th, 2008 Russ CA

Left a long, growly, indecipheral series of pig and snorting noises.

April 11th, 2008 Virginia Beach

Finally received a person on the other end after 10 calls from this number. It ended up being a marketing firm. Just don't answer or block the call.

March 25th, 2008 Diane

Have been receiving calls from this number asking for my daughter who lived with me for a while. Have told thems she has moved to another state (told them again this morning), but they just called again a few moments ago. I did not answer. They never leave a message. This is going on daily, and they call many times each day. Someone needs to do something about this firm.

March 20th, 2008 Sue PA

Global Vantedge. Man has an indian accent and will terrorize people into paying old debts. Uses tactics that are illegal. Calls 3rd parties,neighbors, relatives, anyone with the same last name and harrasses them as well. I have been informed they believe no one will ever challange them and completely disregard the consumer rights laws protecting consumers from unscrupulous Credit Collectors. Tape everythng, save all phone messages, use them all against this creep when you sue. He is a bottom feeder and scum. I've been reading some of the comments left from others, but there is nothing in detail. He calls from 201-210-3618 and leaves a message to call 866-265-2769. He will stop at nothing to demean and terrorize you because he believes you don't know your rights. WHAT HE IS DOING IS ILLEGAL and you do not have to put up with it regardless of whether you owe the debt or not, he is still bound by law to treat you with decency. Don't let him get away with it. Find an NACA attorney in your area (naca.net) and fight back! Don't let scum like this get away with he's doing to good people.

March 8th, 2008 KMC CA

Left message "not to dispel this call" and to call 800.363.4816 and ask for Frank Adams. Probably would have worked except on the message they were looking for someone that doesn't live here. I don't know if they previously had the phone number or not. The person leaving the message had an accent.

February 25th, 2008 phil TX

Very suspicious - BEWARE. I would guess either this is a subcontractor for a collections agency, or a straight SCAMMER trying to get your credit card info. Long wait time before they pick up the phone (indicating an automated call center detecting a 'Hello', and probably an ocean hop from a US phone number to connect the call to a live operator). A woman with garbled voice started to talk, then handed the phone to her 'manager'. Clearly foreign speakers, middle eastern or Indian accent. They asked for a 'Bill Risse' (their spelling), who does not live here. Also gave me his last four SS#, probably to appear official. Even used the "This call may be monitored for quality purposes" BS. Then the person said I had a $1100 balance and asked "how would you like to arrange payment?" Told them never to call again. This is probably the 10th call from them, I usually don't answer when CID says 'unavailable'. Avoid these slimes.

February 21st, 2008 CG IL

When I answered they didn't say anything and slammed the phone down.

This is so bogus. I wanted an unlisted number, but did not want to pay for it, so I had my phone number changed and listed under a fake name. (You can list your phone number in the book under any name you choose... Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, whatever; the bill however, still comes to your home under your own name.) That being said, I keep getting calls from these fools claiming that "Mr. _ _ _ _" (the guys who's name my phone is listed under) has an outstanding debt with XYZ Company. How do I know this is bogus? "Mr. _ _ _ _" doesn't exist! Morons!

Been back and forth today with Global Vantage and Acme (fake name). Last year someone stole my Mom's identity and ran up a huge debt with Acme. Since she is in a nursing home for Alzheimer's, and has been for several years, it's quite impossible for her to have done that. I squared it with Acme and thought the matter was closed (it was) until Global Vantage called. After faxing my power of attorney, they would then talk to me and I found out that they were trying to collect on the debt that had already been written off. I called Acme to verify and found out that they did not use Global Vantage for collections and that indeed the account was closed. Now to find out how to handle the scam they are trying to pull...

I knew it was probably the same deal as another number that kept trying to call me. They call never leave a message. When they called me from the other number they insisted I had an overdue amount on a banana republic account that had been closed ages before. I told them to stop calling, they continued for a couple of weeks then stopped. Then over the last week this current number started calling and because they never left messages I assumed it was the same deal and then found this page to confirm it.

January 7th, 2008 annon CA

I'm pretty sure it's not a scam, my American Express account has been handed over to Global Vantage, and they're harassing me.

December 29th, 2007 James KY

Company called three times on Saturday morning, the first waking us up. Couldn't get an answer as they are apparently using a dialer, and no agent was available when I answered. On the third time, I took the call and got a person on the other end. They verified my name, but not my address. They said that they were calling about an outstanding debt on a Walmart card. I asked if that was a credit card, and he just said it was a Walmart Card. I told him that I had no Walmart card and never had one. Then he wanted to verify my address. I recognized the address as a scondrel who lives in the same county and I've had several other run ins because of him. I told them that was not my address, and then they wanted to verify the last four digits of my social. I told them they could give me the digits and I would tell them if they matched mine. He gave them to me, and I told him nope, wrong social, wrong address, wrong debt, wrong name. Have a good day! We'll see if I get further calls. I would have given the other guys number to them, but he's unlisted, and I wonder why.

December 23rd, 2007 Andy NC

They claim that you owe $550 on a sears card from 2 years ago (that you don't owe) and then try and get you to make a payment. Sears doesn't know what what they're talking about either. When you mention that you're going to call Sears about it they say "No wait this account isn't with sears anymore". Don't give them ANY information. Call the company they claim the debt is with. If that company has no record then it is a scam.

This is a company that is managed from the USA or more specifically California. Global Vantedge, Inc. has outsourced its telecommunications calls routed from India then routing the outbound calls through a New Jersey telephone number (201-210-2618) then routed to your home or business. The callers or representatives are residents of India, are given training to speak with an American dialect and will lie to you when asked their name by giving you a name that is commonly, statistically, or traditionally American.

This company has filed its business license in California and can be contacted directly at the 1-888 number below. I have found it relatively easy to contact them through their northern California telephone and area code. Try these numbers for best results.

Called this morning. I was busy dressing a baby and couldn't get to a phone. They left some weird message. At first it sounded like some odd automessage, then some rude lady and an annoying voice just kept saying "Hello?" over and over about 6 times. Then she hung up.

November 25th, 2007 Anon TN

We have received the calls during the week at random times, usually when we are at work or have just left to work. They finally called at a time when I was able to answer asking for a steve somebody. The accent was very thick, sounding- it sounded nigerian, but very hard to understand. I told them they had the wrong number, it then sounded as if they were asking if there was a clerk here, I told them it was a residential address. The calls continued at random times until 11/17, my husband answered the phone, he asked what it was concerning and who was calling, it was a woman this time & she continued to ask for this steve person and said they could not tell him what it was about. He told them very firmly that since they are calling his house, they can tell him who is calling and that since they will not they must stop calling here because that person has never leaved here with that name or has ever owned the number with that name. He continued to tell them that we know the previous house owners, and that if they continue to call he will report them. It has has been 8 days and no calls from this number. I even looked up our phone number on google, it can not be traced to us or a steve somebody.

November 22nd, 2007 LA

I got a message on my answer machine asking me to go to my neighbor's house (the house is empty and a note on the door says occupants are to vacate this house per the mortgage co,they did in July)and have them call their 800 #. They have very broken english and it is very hard to understand what they are saying in the message. CANNOT believe they are calling at 9:00 P.M. on the night before Thanksgiving, wanting me to go across the street. It's bad enough I get telemarketers wanting me to buy or give then $$$$ but now I get calls for neighbors who don't pay their bills and have not lived by me for over 5 months.If they were still living there,I would NEVER relay a message like that to anybody. I would like to sue this company for harrassing me. This is TOTALLY uncalled for!!!!!!!

November 21st, 2007 AE

These people have been calling and leaving the same message for several weeks..."We are trying to reach you. Please call our toll free number..." in an indian/middle eastern accent. Today when they called there was actually a person on the line. She said that she could only talk to my husband and that this was a very important. Yeah right...I told her that if they ever called me again I was going to contact the FCC. I looked up Global Vantage online and this is a scam.

November 19th, 2007 Arty MD

I tried to call this mysterious number (210-201-3618)from my work phone because I did not want them to see my name. I actually used four different number that are available from my phone. I am sure they could see the organisation's name. I heard a nice greeting saying it was Global Vintedge. It a second a man with Indian accent picked up the phone. He said My name is ... (missed his first name) Dawson. How can I help you ? I did not say a word but waited until he hung up. I did it with all four numbers. Then in an hour I repeated this procedure but this time I could not reach them ! I got a message " Your call cannot be completed as dialed" !
I bet they blocked my number because they did not like that someone was bothering them :) At least I bothered them for a few moments !

November 17th, 2007 Arty MD

Call daily 2-4 times starting at 8:30 am. Usually ask for Mike with different last names. One caller was a woman with African American accent, however, mostly it is a man with Indian accent. I said no Mike lived here and asked them not to call me again especially at 8:30 am on weekends. They have kept calling me but now they are playing a recording which I never listen to till the end. If I do not pick up the phone they either leave no message or say one word "Hello".
I got my number very recently and I they have been calling me since day two or three. I never gave them my number and I know I have no business with them. I usually hang up on them but it is very annoying because they call at 8:30 am every single Saturday and Sunday.

November 6th, 2007 CE

They call just about everyday. There is an Indian accent. They always call for Terry or Terrence. The last caller threatened me by saying I will suffer the consequences if I am not really Terry. I am going to start giving them the Att General's office number. Terry might be there now.

November 6th, 2007 bob PA

what i do is every time they call me i send them a fax - i set it to redial if no connection - i actually had my fax machine redial for 3 days straight - priceless !

November 5th, 2007 BNJ

I started to get calls from this number trying to locate someone with a similar, but not exact name as mine. They hung up on me and kept on calling several times a day. Here is how I got them to stop. I started dialing their number non-stop and either engaged them in conversation to consume their time, or, would blow a sharp whistle into the phone. I have a phone service that I pay a flat rate for unlimited calls, so I can do this. The whistle blowing worked best. At times you could hear the person on the other end screaming.

November 2nd, 2007 tom-m NJ

They left a message, saying to call 866-265-7685 but did not identity themselves or say why I should call. I don't take orders well, so the message and the phone number are both gone.

November 1st, 2007 MAJ

These people call about once a week, usually a Wednesday or Thursday. I never answer the phone. What I get is bizarre messages, like garbled music that really would fit well in a horror movie, then someone going "Hallo? Hallo?" then promptly hanging up. Today someone actually requested me by name before hanging up. Obviously they are using an autodialer as they never seem to realize they are speaking to an answering machine.

October 31st, 2007 MAD

I've gotten a few calls from these people. They sound Indian (from India...not Oklahoma). They are nasty and persistent. This is either a scam to get your credit card info or a scam to steal your identity, or it's a collection agency (since that's what they have been saying they are). If they are a collection agency, it's obvious to me that they just found my name in the phone book and were trying to reach someone with the same name in my area. They either won't realize or won't admit they have the wrong person since I don't owe anyone a nickel. The last time the fool called, I asked him if he was still fucking his mother. He hung up and I haven't had any calls since.

These folks are calling my cell phone at least once per day. I have received only 1 message instructing me to call an 800 number, which I did not. These people are annoying and I don't understand why they are calling a cell phone in the first place.

Been calling me for weeks and not identifying themselves. Turns out I am the wrong person. Spoke to Austin Williams and allen Cox in India who where rude and lieing about their names. I was told that I am not entiltled to know why they called because I was the wrong person. Put them out of bussiness! Call Am Ex and the phone Co and tell them you wont use them anymore. Check with the attny general in your state and see what the laws are and complain. Here is some info from the NY State attny generals web site and some links to complain to:
• telephoning you repeatedly or continuously with the intent to annoy or harass; or
• placing telephone calls without meaningful disclosures of their identity.
• use of a false name;
• contacting you or a family member with such frequency or at such unusual hours as can be reasonably considered abusing or harassing you.

These people call all of the time for a family member. they are declaring bankruptcy which these people have been told over and over. they resorted to calling neighbors and even an ex-brother in-law. what gives these people the right to do this. i plan on filing a report.

October 20th, 2007 prp NJ

October 19th, 2007 college kid CO

this is a collection agency. They were trying to get a hold of me becuase my Gap bill was way over due. Somehow that found my parents home number that is unlisted. Very scary and very rude people. Will call 8-10 times a day. I paid them....I hope it is not a scam.

October 17th, 2007 JOHN DOE

October 17th, 2007 kv TX

said they are calling on my Sears act. and that I need to make a payment on the phone right now. When I said no I would go to the store they said "don't do that". I hung up on them. I don't have a balance with
Sears.

October 10th, 2007 YR

Its a scam, to a google search on the number. They are located in India, trying to get your information.

October 5th, 2007 MB

My bro-in-laws EX wife has had all kinds of collection agents and what not calling us for her. Yeah I'm sick of it and I wish I could find some kind of legal action to take against her, not these poor chaps doing their jobs.

October 2nd, 2007 jmj IA

September 25th, 2007 Sarah Horras IA

They are breaken the LAW

September 25th, 2007 Kari

called at 8:32AM Tues. morning, and against the law for them to call that early if bill collectors. Looking for a Jeffrey, no one here by that name.

September 25th, 2007 JD

Getting calls from this number asking for information about my neighbors. Three times this morning, was getting similar calls in bursts for the past two years. Enough already, I don't know anything about my neighbors, and even if I did, I wouldn't tell them.

September 19th, 2007 A.T. AK

I get more than 3 calls a day early around probably 10am to 4pm (Alaska time) every day from this number on my cell phone. Ever since we connected a house phone we get nothing but hang up calls during this time as well. It has been driving us crazy because my husband works the graveyard shift and is asleep from 8am-4pm. We do not have caller ID on the house but we do on our cell phone. So far we get several in a row. The first one shows the 201-210-3618 number. Then they call again (one right after the other all day) next it shows id unavailable then unkown number and it just goes on. Everyone states it is a collection agency for unkown debts. We have a Capitol One credit card in both our names. We have no debt... barely any credit being only 20 and 21 years old and newly married. If anyone knows how they get our numbers (especially when we are on the national do not call list) it'd be great info to list online for the others being called.

CALL ND WON'T LEAVE MESSAGE

September 19th, 2007 JFT GA

I received a call today 9/19/07, from this number. Music played in the background as a male voice, slightly eastern Indian, apologized that no one was available to take my call. I hung up and will continue to do so, if called again.

September 18th, 2007 Holly IN

Dont have a clue who they are... no messages....lots of calls. Pain in the butt! I do not owe any debts that are being collected on... UG!

September 18th, 2007 gallifray

we receive calls from this number several times a day. We have caller ID so we don't pick up. Very annoying though.

September 13th, 2007 ACL OH

Have received several calls from this number; have stated several times that if they called again, I would file harrassment charges; at this point, I don't know what to do but file charges but I don't know if you can really do that

August 31st, 2007 MN MN

I've been getting calls from this number 3-4 times a day. Same Indian accents. I just simply don't answer the phone.

August 29th, 2007 Diane MA

Won't tell what they are calling about have phoned neighbors, any one with my last name when I did talk to them could reveal sourse and won't send me any infor of why they are doing this will call at least 8 or 9 times aday

August 25th, 2007 Chux PA

5 calls today...a foreign gentelman..no id wants to speak with xxxxxx I said dont know that person. They hang up...call back in 2 hours?

August 23rd, 2007 wguru CA

If your landline call blocking fails at blocking any numbers, switch your provider to a VoIP service. With VoIP service, you can block any nuisance numbers. Alternatively, pay the $99 and get a box that blocks numbers you (and not just those that the phone co's) choose.

August 23rd, 2007 MLM MA

I have received 42 calls from this number since 7/26...even after telling them the person they are looking for is not at my number. Receive calls even though my number is part of do not call registry.

Global Vantage

Reported them to the FTC, I suggest you do the same, takes 5 minutes!
1-877-FTC-HELP

They also told me to send a CERTIFIED LETTER to the company like in the post message by CMS second link.

They can call one more time and then they have to stop!!!

August 18th, 2007 ADW

These people have been calling our home phone, asking for my sister in regards to a "business matter" they tell her she owes them several hundred dollars on a citi bank card, which she has never had. They are always indian people, and are very rude.

August 18th, 2007 NLT AR

called yesterday with a recording to wait

called today asking for my son who hasn't lived here in 20 years

August 17th, 2007 Pj NC

Calls are coming day and night. Does anyone have any info about these people. Sounds like an Indian women on their recorded website.

August 10th, 2007 KK CA

They call and ask you about something with the wrong info (SSN, address, etc.) When you say its wrong, they ask YOU to provide them with the right info. If they are calling they SHOULD know your info. Do not provide them with any personal sensitive info. I'm filing a complaint with the police department.

August 9th, 2007 CLK NY

These people call my house morning,afternoon,night,and even have gone so far as to call me on my freaking cell phone.This agency is relentless.

August 9th, 2007 Harry

These kooks have been calling me for several months. My advice to anyone is to not answer the phone when they call or call them back.

It may be a while, but eventually, it will pass.

It can be annoying, yes. But just don't respond at all.

August 4th, 2007 LJP NJ

Called on a Saturday morning, Steve Adams(?) demanded to speak with my wife. Told her that she was delinquent for $600+ on an AMEX card that we do not even have. He got very rude with her and I took the phone from her and spoke with him and then asked to speak with his supervisor, Kiley Jefferson (??), I asked her the information on the account and it was not our address, SSN, nothing matched except the name. When Itold her this sounded like a scam she called me an ass and told me to tstop wasting her time...this is what got me going. I then reminded her that she called me on a Saturday morning and that we were the ones being acccused of being delinquent. IT went back and forth for another 5 minutes and I then reverted to the more mature person, thanked here for her time and asked that she never call me again. I wished her well and hung up. After that I called American Express only to find out that this is a collections agency that they do use. I explained what happened and they said they would look into it. I am filing a report with the international branch of the Better Business Bureau.

July 28th, 2007 RL TX

I have been receiving their annoying calls for over a year. In CMS's post of 2007-01-28 a site for a form letter is referenced. The letter looks authentic and forceful, but I am hesitant to send it for fear of giving them more ammunition to further harass me. Has anyone tried this letter and does it work?

July 28th, 2007 Ray

I am filing a complaint with the Federal Trade Commissions. I suggest we all do the same

July 28th, 2007 Raymond

I'd been getting calls every day for the past two weeks. At least 4 times a week asking for a lady with the same last name as mine. Filed a complain with do not call. Maybe we should contact the state attorney General in California.

July 24th, 2007 MKV

I've been getting calls from this number every morning for the past month, at my work number.

July 24th, 2007 Jason TX

I get a call from this number aqt least three times a day.First time no message.Second time a lady with a very thick accent will leave a message sounds like a recording.Third time a man will leave a message again very thick accent sounds like a recording.

July 18th, 2007 BAC

update ... I use cash almost 100%, even to buy my house, have never had a bad debt or collection, so I can reassure all of you that if you think they're calling you about a debt, it's just a coincidence.
Also, they must be using illegal "spoofing" to put that 201-210-3618 number on your callerID, because an automated dialer, working through a single outgoing line ID couldn't complete enough calls to generate all the complaints we see online.
I will try to get it blocked by the phone co. and see what happens.

July 16th, 2007 michelle AZ

I get calls from this number at least 10 times a day at all hours of the day i never answer they never leave a message.

July 12th, 2007 BAC

Calls regularly on my cell, but I never pick up. Finally a flat man's voice (computer?) left a message of "urgent business importance" for John somebody-or-other I've never heard of.

July 12th, 2007 wguru CA

Global Vantage is Asset Acceptance LLC, ref 210 210-3618. 'Both' are holders of beyond stautes of limitations charge-offs that credit cards companies sell to debt collectors. As far as I can find out, unless the collector bought the debit from the credit card company or another debt collector all w/in two years of the disputed debt, they're SOL because of the SOL. They seem to be counting on the nuisance calls forcing you to pay that debt regardless that they have no lawful means to collect. Either buy the $99 call blocker or go to using VoIP and block them for free.

July 6th, 2007 JG FL

Same thing here. I asked for a call back number and they gave me 866-457-5825 and to ask for a supervisor by the name of Mark Michael.
