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
upc calls from 2 phone numbers:
This company, somehow, gets names and phone numbers from businesses. I don't believe it's done legally, as I am working with the company they are calling me about. They demand that THEY be paid, instead of the company the actual bill is with. This is a SCAM company!! Don't give them anything!!
When I had my old dumbphone LG CU500 for about five or six years I NEVER got any phone calls from this phone number. I finally had to upgrade to a smartphone in April 2012 via a ATT kiosk located inside of my local Sam's Club. A few days later I received my first phone call from this number. It had indicated it was from Texas. I DO NOT answer any phone numbers that I don't know. No message was left. A few days later another call from this same number. Did a phone number search on the net and discovered that it was a Debt Collection Agency. Interesting being that I don't have any outstanding debts. I still get calls a few times a week from this number and they NEVER leave any voice messages. IF this was legit and I really did owe a company money, you'd think that they'd leave me a personalized message along with my name. There's no way to block calls from an iPhone which is really dumb being that my old dumbphone had the ability to block incoming calls. I heard that you can get ATT to block phone but they'll charge you about 6 to 8 dollars a month for this service.
Indeed, SFP, poor collections practice is a bigger problem than that of willful "deadbeats". Many of the comments here are about aggressive skip tracing, misfired calls, and junk debt accounts. Here and there are signs of agency lawbreaking, such as pretexting and calling outside of prescribed hours.
Let's not quickly judge the more typical debtor, who has no choice but to default when lenders won't stop changing the rules and repricing accounts in their total favor. We are learning more each month that consumer failure is precisely what card and mortgage lenders want.
All: If you are receiving repeated, misdirected, and/or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the FDCPA, the Federal law which regulates collector behavior. Learn your rights at FTC-dot-gov. See also your state laws for additional support.
This is a collections agency. They called my home for the first time this evening. It was in reference to a NYC parking ticket my husband got in 05/2005. Here's the thing- while I have NO problem paying the fine if that is what we owe, we just received notification of it this past week in the mail! I found their phone number after the recording speed read it to me and I deciphered something similar to what I thought I heard in a post below. The number if you want to contact them is 1-281-647-4152. So for those who think these calls are because people don't pay their bills it can be for a simiple parking violation too. Not everyone walks away from their financial obligations when things get tough!
they call us for first time today did not say anything thing on our voice mail . and we been on don't call list since it start. it show up on our call id as texas call and the number 281-647-4152, and since i have aunt an uncle in texas i call my mom and ask if she known the number a she told me no. i wish would not call our number because the only reason i get call from Louisiana are Texas if some1 hurt ,sick, are have died . and when i see Texas call or Louisiana call i start worrying and i get sick from the worrying
they keep calling even though we have told them they have the wrong number and to stop calling. They just keep calling.
BANK OF AMERICA credit collection harassment. In my Google research I've linked this number also with "credit collection." I have received 120+ calls in two weeks! Thank goodness I give out a "junk" phone number that goes to a voicemail box only (like a spam email account) to businesses!! I was one month behind in one credit card (by mistake--because my bank changed my account number), but I paid it today. Perhaps I will see these calls stop now? The credit card is with Bank of America. and I've never been late with a payment before. Not once. The state of our economy--harass every customer, even the good ones. Sigh.
They just keep calling and keep calling!!! keep telling me to call a number (about some debt) that no one answers. I have no idea who these people are.... but they really really need to stop calling my number! I am more than sick of their annoying calls and eating up my message space!
Obtained by first phone call that states nothing. Send a cease letter via certified mail to them and they are required by law to stop calling you. They will only be able to contact you via the method you chose and you can add that they need to prove that they legally own the debt and the exact amount (most can not---they try to harass to obtain monies they may not even be legally entitled to). That's what I did to the last one and they apparently sold it to this one. So off will go another letter to these jokers this weekend. I am also going to report them.
many calls from multiple #'s 2816474152, 4165231121,and others that i deleted. they fill up my mailbox, delete my saved #'s, mostly leaves no message/or "can't go into the nature of the call" or "very important call our operator before x time today". i return the call .........no answer. they call early in the morning close to 8 am, late nights, after 10pm, seven days weekly.far as i know i do not have any current debt. do people get to harass others with such a "witch hunt" and no consequences. for now i will just ignore them.

If this is a collection agency then they for sure have the wrong person. The only debt I have is my mortgage. They can flake off.
This is ridiculous!!!!!!!!!! Can somebody do something to stop these phone calls???? I have no idea what to do. They have been calling me for about four months and there is no possible mistake about my cell phone number because I have the same phone number for the past nine yars.
Actually i am working in USA as a financial planning expert. Recently i got some calls from 281-647-4152 no. & the person was asking about a another person's information which is not related to me. I tried to make him understand that might be he is making some mistake but he was not ready to listen anything. It was very disturbing for me. Finally i got the information about that no with the help of ..
From what I have read, this is a debt collector. They call our number all the time. The woman they are looking for was married to my brother-in-law but divorced over 10 years ago. I have never met her and my husband and brother-in-law have no idea where she is. I told the operator this and he told me he would not remove our number from her file until I could give him a new number. How totally ridiculous! Why are they using our number anyway? The only thing I can think is they looked up her former last name (which is our unusual last name) and thought they would look for her here. I just kept saying there is no way we can know how to find this woman. From what I understand, she split to another state. This is just totally annoying and outrageous to me.
they call non stop like 6 times a day i just hit ignore, but they keep callin my cell phone and fill my message box.
Received first call from them this evening. They didn't leave message on answering machine. Thanks to info here I'll know how to deal with them since they're calling a wrong number.
I have been getting calls from this number for almost two years. I have complained to the "no call list" people 30 times. I have turned him in to our local law enforcement. I have yelled at the man. I don't answer, he leaves the same message every time. Now I have the fax machine hooked up so he gets the screech. He still calls five or six times a week. I tried the *60 thing, it didn't work either.
This company calls all the time and leaves a message. I called and asked them not to call and they keep calling. I asked them to send me a letter of explaination and they didi not. It is very annoying.
It is a so called collection agency, but they are calling from India. They dont have a problem with calling me 3-4 times a day. They ask me for my banking information, and told me they would call and harass me till I gave them Money they are looking for. Sounds like a scam to me!!!!!
Have been calling for several month now. Since 3/20 -evry day, no message, when I pick up - I told them they got wrong number, they continue to call daily.
this is 2nd day in a row for a call - nothing left on answering machine-have not picked up as didn't recognize the ID
The one sure way to avoid calls from a collection agency: PAY YOUR BILLS ON TIME. What a sorry bunch of whiners, if they are calling the wrong number, TELL THEM. They don't want to waste time/money calling bad numbers.
I get a partial recording that says 9 pm central time with a male voice. It happens every few days on my message machine. Caller id gave this number. I called and only get a recording. The phne company should remove the number since it is used to harrass people.
They have called approximately 10 times to my cell phone. I tried calling the number back but always receive a recording. I stopped answering the call.

no one was home and no message was left. but the number appeared on caller ID as "unknown". I called the number
and it went to a auto msg saying that all reps were busy, and please wait.
They are a collection agency. They have been working w/ me to pay off a debt. I have not had any problems with them being willing to work with me to get it taken care of.
I was asleep n they woke me. They left a voicemail telling me it was urgent and to call them back b4 9 o clock central time. The thing is that in their voicemail they never told me who they were, what my name was, waht they were calling for. All it said was it was urgent. Is this a scam or what?...
Caller is Universal Fidelity Corp. Part of Univeral Fidelity LP. CEO is Terry W. Simonds and Yvonne Simmonds is also on the board. (by the way, they have a nice pool in the backyard purchased on your misery). I have his home number (and neighbors), but am saving it if they keep calling. Phone for UFC (281)647-4100. If you'd like to continuously fax bomb them their fax is: 281-647-4200, 281-861-0096, and 281-647-4207. web: www.uflp.com
By the way, checking the records, Mr. Simonds is a huge supporter of several republican candidates. Monies have been donated on the corporations behalf in the thousands. There are several class action lawsuits against the company over the past several years for fraudualant practices. All appear to be settlements. Happy hunting....

we are relatively new to the area where i live now, and, thus, our phone number is new. well, whoever had this number before us (or just gives this number out) owes the world money, b/c we have been getting calls for this same named person (and also a female name with the same last name) literaly since day 1 with this phone number. anyway, this number 281-647-4152 is very aggressive and calls all the time and leaves messages saying it is important and they cannot go into because of the nature of the call. so i never call back b/c i know it is for this person who had the number before us, or just gives it out to avoid these calls in the first place. so, today (saturday) they called very early in the morning. so i decided to call the number back to put a stop to the @#$%. they were so rude. i explained that they are looking for someone not at this number and they needed to remove my number and stop calling. when he was being so rude i told him that i wqas doing them a favor for letting them know they are calling the wrong number. he told me THEY were doing me a favor for removing hte number. i asked for a letter to document that i have been removed and they humg up on me. i am so pissed. i know they will keep calling. what are the recourses here? i wont change muy number bc i will have the same issues with the new number and someone who owes money. anyone out there know how to handles this? the guy who hung up on me was named (or said his name) is Chris. how rude. is there anything i can do legally if they keep calling?
I have been receiving calls from this number for months, don't owe anyone any money, they leave messages saying this needs my immediate attention, call 800 something number, but the number that show up on my caller ID is 281-647-4152 which shows up as UNVL FIDLTY COR, which when I tryed to do a reverse phone it is a land number in Texas,then it wants me to pay to find out who it belongs to, I think not,no website for Universal Fidelity Corporation. I'm on the do not call list they call late at night during the day when I'm at work on Sunday nights, late Saturday nights, it strange that no one can seem to get rid of them, I found this website by accident, seems I'm not the only person they are bothering.
I am so tired of getting calls from this number every twenty minutes. It is harrassing and want it to stop!!! They don't seem to get when you call and tell them to stop the harrassing calls.THey are rude and will not take no for an answer. Next step to call my attorney.
send a report to the national do not call registry for abuse
these people called "my place of work" several x's about my husband's credit(i was not on this account) proceeded to me who they were,what was owed and why they were calling.i informed them they were wrong on several accounts. they could not release any info of him to me since not part of this, that that were not to call my work. they called again sometime later at my work after contacting 2 of my elderly neighbors (how did they get that info??) asking them to give us a message to call. i again informed them they were in the wrong. they weren't to call me at work, its wriiten somewhere about this. they became very hostile over the phone with me, to the point i had become very agressive over the phone w/them (in front of coworkers) threatened them with harrassment and hung up on them.
this group is awful.
it used to come up ufc now comes up texas. they call multiple times. am getting a lawyer now.
They also wanted my son to call....Funny thing is, he's 9 years old,what would they be callin' a 9 yr. old boy for?
they wouldn't give me any Info. in why, or who they were. WHAT CAN I DO?
This company as been leaving message on my answering machine for the past few weeks. No company on the message and they don't even state who they are looking for. From this site and a few others I've searchedI'm glad that I didn't return the call. I don't have caller id so I finding out what is phone number belongs to has been helpful. Now I will just attempt to block their calls in the future.
they called my cell twice so far this morning. i answered the first time to hear a recording saying this was not a telemarketing call, and hung up. the second time they called, 10 mins from the first time, I didn't answer. Voice message was left, but couldn't make out anything they were saying so deleted it.
I have gotten 4 calls so far now and it is a recording and they just tell me my immediate attention is needed and I am to call and I just never do. I don't know who these people are.
They call and leave a message to call them,haven't asked names yet we tried calling and are disconnected etc.
I arrived at work this morning and found TWO calls made last night BOTH stamped at 5:44 p.m. Voice mail said "please call before 9:00 p.m., this is an urgent matter!!" I have no clue who these people are.......... Googled the number and found this page and read all the posts. NOW I can't wait to get home because I've been receiving calls from an 800 number but no messages were left. Since the caller ID did not show WHO was calling, I did not answer. Since an 800 number was listed in these comments, I'm curious to see if it is the same one. Since I don't have any past due bills, I can't imagine who could be calling. Thanks for this site!!! It saved me a lot of aggravation if they attempt to call back!!
Don't know who it is. I don't owe anyone money..I actually pay my bills lol Didn't bother to call them back. The # that they call in my company pays for so if they want to send them something, I guess I will let them try and get in touch with them.
Just call the 800 number and make them pay for the call... Each time you call them, they have to pick up the tab. Why do you think they give you the toll number in the recording?!?
1-800-580-8450 REMEMBER TO CALL THE 800 NUMBER, NOT THE 281 number.
these idiots keep calling me about some "phantom" debt supposedly. even though i have no debt with these a-holes it's fun for me to keep them on the line to give them a fake credit card number...they keep asking me-the card doesn't go thru and i keep telling to keep trying until they finally figure out the card doesn't work and then they ask for another credit card so i give them another fake credit card number and repeat the same steps...sometimes it last for hours..talking about desperate. and then i tell them to wait by the fax machine for my credit card info...those bastards will wait alright..then they call back and i'll conference them in to a different business and you should hear them go at it...it's freaking hillarious! i don't know about you guys but i find it funny. i can tell them to stop calling me but they still do so i try to have as much fun with it as much as i can...
I have just called Universal Fidelity at the phone number, 281-550-1444 which is listed on their web site. A real person answers this number. As in many other cases, the company was trying to call the previous owner of my cell phone number. Actually, after talking to the woman at the other end of the line, I realized that I had previously told them that this number did not belong to "Ms. Davis"...Thus, if they continue to call, I will report them to the Federal Communications Commission; a complaint can be enacted through their web site.
Contact the BBB in Houston for report ID 55199. They are a collection agency. In other words, they have "bought" your presumed debt, or someone else's debt, and they are calling your number to try to make a profit by collecting. They are calling and using your personal phone line for commercial purposes. You may have the right to collect money from them if they continue to call your number for commercial purposes. Check with your State Attorney General for how to collect from them in your state. They contribute heavily to Republican candidates for office. They are privately owned. They are located at 1445 Langham Creek Drive, Houston, Texas 77084. People who work for them include Scott Hearn, Director, in Houston; David Brown, Director of Operations, in Houston, Graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University; John Jackson, General Counsel, in Houston, call 281-647-4100, fax 281-647-4207; Ralph Ayala, PRESIDENT AND COO since April 2005, call 281-550-1444, fax 81-647-4203. I suggest the only way to get people like this to leave you alone is find out their personal phone numbers and start calling them at 2:00 am and asking them how they sleep at night. For instance, there is only one Ralph Ayala listed in Houston, at 1558 WOOD LODGE DR, HOUSTON, TX 77077, with a phone number of (281) 759-6262
called saturday @ 12:21pm - caller id shows "univeral fidlty". calls every other day. when you answer it is a recorded message stating that they cannot go into any details over the phone and gives out a phone number which is the same one that they're calling from. you have no option to talk to anyone. i'm on the donotcall.gov list and i've opened several complaints.
wednesday @9:45am, caller id shows "univeral fidlty".
call constantly. if i answer it is a recorded message saying that they can't tell me the details over the phone and i have to call some number. no option to speak to anyone at the time.
I had a message on my work voicemail. Googled the number and found this page. I wonder what would happen if everyone started calling them constantly. Maybe thats what free nights and weekends are for.
It started as a 'dead air' call, but then I could hear background noise. noone ever answered.
have called everyday for weeks, no person is on the line, it is a recording that says the matter is too important to discuss over the phone and we must call by 9 p.m. CST. Finally, I came on here and found all these listings about this company, we will no longer be answering this number and if calls continue to come in I will look for how you go about reporting them. Doesn't the do not call registry have some sort of reporting device?
Said to call # but did not get #
Got a call from them tonight. I just keep my ringer turned off and check my messages once a week.
Life's too short.
They also work for American Express. They are very rude and very persistent. I don't even owe American Express money! And they called my ex mother in law and harrassed her and I don't know how they even got her number since I have been divorced from her son since 04. They demanded from her that she tell them where I was!
Call cell phone and didnt leave message...
called cell phone, said it was not a telemarket call but it was a very urgent matter. I do NOT owe anyone any money!
they bcall me daily , and have for months now, every so often a black male advises me to call him before 9:PM today to clear up this very serious matter. they never give me a persons name or a company name -they just demand that I call them
"Unknown name"I have recieved about 20 calls, at first they would not leave a message. Yesterday they left a message on answering machine.
They have a very import matter to discuss please hold the next available operator. repeated they until machine cut them off. Today the same thing. Would like to stop them.
Under another fictional name I sent a message, only moments ago, saying insufficient information was left by UFC. In a way this is true because they are leaving messages for a man who apparently used to own my number. I once answered a call and said, 'this is a new phone for me and I don't know the man you seek' (loose quote). The UFC is still a problem because I received three (3) more calls (minimum)in Aug. and Sept. (today=09-06-07) and, having just listened to them to be certain, am left to wonder whether the agents fairly inform each other during business day inservices to keep each other up to date. Call with a message #1 is a female, calling for the man whose name I won't mention. She says it is a debt. Call with a message #2 is a man, calling for the same man and, in addition to giving his phone number 1-281-647-4152, the agent tells me his name and extension number. Let's assume the inservice problem for the day ext. #1241 belonged to this agent. Ignorance of the first statement that this is a new person to this ph#, and ignorance of the non-response to calls which come in while I sleep and call me a "customer", begs the question, why is the next call, (call with a message #3) a computerized message in a woman's voice saying this is a sincere attempt to collect.... wait, wait, wait, until my voicemail ran out of time. Please UFC not only am I proof your are harassing the man you seek, you are harassing me to make that clear to the public.
CEASE DESIST ALL CALLS. YOU, AND ALL IN MY STATE WON'T HIRE ME THOUGH A 1998 MASTER DEGREE GRAD. WAS IT THE DISABILITY? gARNISH ILLEGAL. GAO FEBRUARY 7,2005 FILE B-294797. IF HAVING A PHONE TO FIND WORK IMPLIES YOU'LL DEFAME ME WITH HARASSING PHONE CALLS THAT HAPPEN TO COME IN ONLY WHILE I SLEEP (HOW'S THAT?) THEN, YOU NEED TO RE-EVALUATE THE PURPOSE OF A PHONE IN MY HOME. I PREFER TO FIND HONORABLE WORK, NOT WASTE TIME LISTENING TO ANSWERING MACHINES SAY WAIT, WAIT, WAIT....... UNTIL THEIR TIME RUNS OUT. UNQUALIFIED TO COLLECT SMALL DEBTS. LET ME CONTACT THE STUDENT LOANS COMPANIES AS I HAVE BEEN FROM THE START. YOU ARE NOT A PART OF THIS EQUATION SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU ASSUME YOU ARE. YOU SHOULD HAVE ANSWERED. NOW YOU'RE BLOCKED.
OK they kept calling while I was at work, today they actually left a message stating I had until 9 to call make. Hogwash, I know I dont own any money. They also call in the evening. So if UFO reads this take me off your stupid Azz call list.
This phone number calls me very day. Never leave a message. I've answered once and someone was then and asked the person to never call this number again. How can we stop them?
they keep calling my house but never say anything. they call 4 and 5 times a day.
caller id shows UFC - thursday, 08/09/2007, 3:37pm. leaves message to hold for the next available rep about an important business matter then the rep comes on asking for someone else. wrong number.
Calls an leaves a recorded message on our home phone. We don't recognize the number so we don't answer it
This guy named Alan keeps calling me about a bill I wrote off 2 years ago. I finally asked him for his company's name today and a phone number. He asked me why I needed that and I told him I was calling the BBB on him. He hung up and called right back telling me that he wasn't going to go away. I think if everyone filed a BBB report on this company, we may be able to do this company in.
They call constantly and never leave a message, they hang up when I answer.
Even though they are on my block list for over a month, they still call 5-6 times a day. i took them off the list just to see what they wanted. The call was for someone I don't know. I told them not to call here anymore, but got three more today.
This is a collection agency that works for Sprint and Nextel.
They have been calling me just today and they've called 6 times in the last hour. They will not leave a message and when I tried to call them back just now I could not understand a single word they were saying. Sorry, no dice.
asked for my son, asked them what it was about they said personal and could not tell me. Asked if they could leave a message for him and I told them not unless they told me what it was about. They would not so I told them they could keep trying to get him. He moved here 2 years ago and never a call from them until now. Son does not have any credit cards and has not recieved any bills since moving here. Don't know how they got my number because my son has different last name than me and no phone
This number called me at 8:30 in the morning on the 4th of July!!!! A freaking HOLIDAY!!!!!! I looked the number up on yellowbook.com and it said that it was a land line based in Barker, TX. When I called the number back the operator said "Fidelity, How can I direct your call?" From there I just hung up and the googled the number. I have since added this number to my "do not answer" list of numbers! Expecially if they are going to call me on a stinking holiday!
got call at work some how went to my ext and they would not give any info only to call back at 281-647-4152-ext.1103 i dont have time for theses clowns im at wk
Scam... Scam... using threats to get money.
Called wanting personal information on someone that is unavailable to speak to them due to illness. Will continue telling them that until the situation changes.
They are on my blocked callers list, so all they get is I am not taking calls from this number. You'd think they would learn. With the block list I never hear a ring, just a notification thaat the call came in.
I get constant phone calls from these people for a Michelle. I constantly tell them I don't know this person. I even called them a few times to stop the phone calls. They were nasty with me and the calls continue. HELP
Asked for a deceased person
Has called twice so far.
asked for my son who no longer lives here
This number keeps calling me and leaving messages that says urgent call immediately. First couple times I called it was a recording that said please hold for the next available rep. What? I thought stupid telemarketer trying to sell me something & I'm on do not call list so I hung up and ignored. Then they started leaving FRAUD messages saying things like this is so and so clinic, you have a family emergency please call right away. Scum bags! I got pissed and called to tell them off. A guy answered and says I owe Sprint PCS $430.00. I never had Sprint. My home phone is ATT and has been since I was 18 (I'm 24 now). Never had a cell phone. I told the guy to stop calling me. He said I had to pay it by credit card right now on the phone or he'd have to take drastic measures. WTF?! I told him A) I don't owe anybody any money and 2) I don't have any credit cards. He called me a liar and said open your wallet and get out the credit card NOW! I hung up on the SOB and don't answer the phone anymore.
CALLED..ASKED FOR MY MOM..WHEN ASKED WHO THEY WERE..THEY HUNG UP
just called and asked for Matthew Clark whoever that is.
With a little research online I have identified the number as Universal Fidelity. They have called an average of five times per week for the past month, asking for Sharon ______. I can not remember the last name, but it sounds nothing like mine. I have told them every time that they have the wrong number and they ignore me.
Do not be scammed, this is a scammer just trying to get your credit card information. BEWARE !!!
Got call from this number on my wife's phone, voice mail with just the number - sounds like some spam phone call.
I never answered it but they have called 10-15 times already.
This number is calling me every hour, on the hour, and has been for quite a while. I AM NOT Debbie Compton, Debbie Compton DOES NOT have this number anymore, and I'd really love to let them know that, except these calls only consist of an automated message telling me to call them back at a long-distance # (and I do not have long-distance service - like I would pay to call them anyway).
Sooooo sick of this s**t....
My name is Mike and I am a collections agent for another company. These guys are violating the FDCPA in the amount of times they harrass my mom to try to get a hold of me. I'm actually thinking of getting a lawyer involved to sue them.
received an automated call asking us to return the call. By curiosity only, I called back and they were looking for someone else. Very nice. I asked them to remove my # from the list and she advised me she would.
like a prank call no one on the other end
David thanks for the tip
Go to www.adviceontime.com and read the article on getting rid of debt collectors. it worked for me.
Partial message with the last 3 numbers and then repeated the whole thing. Not say who they wanted to speak to..Don't know them..
Don't care.But when they call back they'll get an ear full.
You leave messages, yet when I call there is an automated voice answering system and the phone rings, and rings, and rings, and rings...no one responds.
I get calls up to 3 times a day! Been going on for months. I don't answer calls from that #. Same message: "Please call us at 281-647-4152". Getting Call Rejection and # block from Verizon for home phone.
Called & was very rude to my daughter - demanding that she put me on the phone when I wasn't there. Have no idea why they would be calling me.
Buggers called me on April 17 and April 18 (281-647-4152) at around 5:50pm MST. The first one was some male bonehead looking for "RED!?" and the next night it was a gal "looking for my best friend". I told them both that they had the wrong number and hung up on them. Lousy vocal quality. If this is a collection outfit, they are piss poor.
Some lady left me message on my cell saying that I need to call her at ext 1185. Did not say who she was or what she wanted. Of course, after reading all of the other posts, I set my phone to only accept calls from my phonebook! Thanks to whoever set up this site!
There is a webisite that shows you how to get rid of these annoying people for free, they dont ask you to register or anything, go to www.adviceontime.com they have a lot of useful info. hope this works for you too.
They left a message on our phone to call them or have our legal council call them if we have retained one. Many automated calls from them as well. I don't owe money to them so wont be calling them back.
hahaha they keept on calling me then i prank call them they got scared i keept on doing in it they got mad now prank call them everytime to make fun of them
I now have received 43 [hone calls from this same number.They ask me to return their call, at my expense, I have tried and no one ever answers.I'm sure it is not legit, I've never had a sprint acct, nor JC Penney, or Dell.My phone# is listed on the Do Not Call register?What else can I do to stop the harassment?
received call from them at 1620 hours. Most of message was cut of but told me to call them back. I've received calls from this number before but still haven't a lue why.
They have the wrong person. Not my address, bill or anything. This has got to be un-lawful. Making life hell. I don't owe anybody anything.
I called back. "thank you for calling our business office" as per recording. Don't know who or why someone would wake me up everyday so early in the moring. As soon as I pick up the phone, I hear a recording msg " pls hold for next available agent".
This guy keeps calling my house and everytime I pick up, nobody's there and then all of a sudden disconnects. Sometimes I hear breathing on the other line.
He called my house 6 times in a row and my friends keep getting calls from this guy too. I tried to call this guy back, but everytime I do it says that the number does not exist.
These people are calling my father wanting payment on a JC Penney credit card. My father has never had a credit card with JC Penney. He gave out his SS# to them, now I need to contact credit reporting agency to advise them of this.
Left a message about money owed a credit card. I don't have a credit card.
Caller Id says Texas- asked for my son, he has not lived here for 2.5 years. I gave them a piece of my mind.
Left a message to call
back could not understand
these people will not leave me aloooone!!!!! my god!!! they call at all times of the night noon and morning, very harassing!
Keep leaving messages on my answering machine at home, do not plan on calling them back.
Recording asks you to call this number.
Under Fair Debt Collections Act, you must notify an agency in writing that you do not want them calling. Send certified mail,return receipt to verify that notice was received. See Clarkhoward.com for more info with dealing with harrassing debt collectors.
I've been getting two back-to-back calls from this number 2-3 times a day. I finally got fed up today and called them back. They put in my number, asked for a name I never heard of and said they'd take my # out of the system. Hopefully it'll work.
Left a recorded number to call.
keeps calling my phone from the number 000-001-2345, then reverts me to call this number in a message.
We get 2-3 calls every day from these people. Didn't know they were a collection agency. We don't have any outstanding debt, but will check our crdit report just in case.
I get 5 nor 6 calls from this number each day. I have a perfect credit score and have never been late for a bill for the last 70 years. I signed-up for the "no marketing calls" which doesn't work for these folks.
I've been getting these for months I guess my cell is on their automated call list but I really want a way to BLOCK THIS.
They call at least once a day. A computerized message tells us they are not a telemarketer and to call them at 281-647-4152.
281-647-4152 has been calling my home for at least 2weeks now I have called back.no one answers.Once I tried to leave a message.after reading all of this on here I will be calling someone.I lost my Grandaughter5 weeks ago I do not need this .
Definitely getting to the point of harrassment. I have perfect credit. I don't know what thy want and don't want to talk to them!
They called me looking for my landlord. The guy said find him and we'll call you back. I called back talked to a lady told her he doesnt live here and she said he put my home number down as a contact. My landlord only knows my cell number not my home number. I told them not to call here. They HU
Call back to back, leaving an annoying recorded voicemail everytime to have us call them. There has to be a way to stop this.
They are calling me at home and at work. It is always a recording and sometimes they say they are Fidelity Investements and leave a number and ext. Other times it just says to call a number back.
UFC has promised on three occasions to send documentation supporting their claim. Two plus weeks later they still are not sending anything.
They're calling my cell phone almost everyday. It's a new phone and not even in my name! When I try to answer to tell them to F- off, they hang up immediately and call right back! Sounds like a scam or they're obviously into the annoying people game!
They call us every morning at 8 a.m. sharp. And usually twice in the evening during the week. Very annoying since we don't owe any money to anyone! Probably for the people who had the number before us IF they are legit!
I get calls regularly from this number.These crazy mixed-up morons can't decide what they wanr to be....One time Universal Fidelity, a collection agency the next and Sprint Cellphone the next. I'm tired of it, can't do alot about it as call block doesn't work, but I guess it's about time to let Bellsouth/AT&T Security look into it.....these miserable oafs just have too much time on their hands......They should get a REAL job !!!!!
Called saying they were from " Payless " it is about a job interview setup and they need me to get in touch with them.. My nephew took the call. Prior to that I have gotten 18 calls from this number in a matter of 3 days... Each time could not understand what the heck they were saying... Told them on numerous occasions that I am on the do not call list and have told them to remove me from their system and Do NOT call me anymore.... How do we stop this?????? Totally Outragious they can keep doing this to people..... Any suggestions how to end the harrassement?????
i just received another call right now. i am the same steve from 2 messages ago
I got a message on my company's general mailbox to call this number. They acted like they were a client of ours. I called, and they asked for my phone number. When I gave it to them, they said it was not in the system and hung up on me. By the way, the *60 thing does not work. I too am a telemarketer of sorts, so I'm half tempted to call them frequently and for no reason.
just got a call right now. did recognize the number. and didnt answer the call. message was left, but havent checked it yet
These guys have been calling me off and on for the last few weeks. I've not answered, but let the answering machine pick up. The message itself is a short recording telling you to call the number (281-647-4152). If I recall correctly, isn't it illegal to leave pre-recorded messages on people's answering machines?
2 calls have come in when i was away from my desk, no voicemessage left.
Just received a call and got no I.D. and no one on the other line. Googled the number and found this page.
Did not know number and did't answer
Called cell phone and when answered they hung up.
recieved multiple calls on new cell phone. Always a message saying you need to call us back. So I got fed up and called them back first thing the do is put you on hold. Then someone talks to you. Told this person straight up to remove my number. Got put on hold and they never came back. Next two calls were to the State Attorney Generals office and the phone company. If you are worried because it is a collection agency run a credit check on yourself at freecreditreport.com
BE VERY CAUTIOUS REVEAL NO INFORMATION TO THIS COMPANY.
I have heard a rumor that when the computer connects to hit the # sign repeatedly it is suppose to confuse the computers. Could never get my wife to follow this advice (anything that helps).
left a message on my machine "Hello, Hello..." don't know these people, and if they're debt collectors i don't know why they'd call me. i don't have any debt
Not sure who these people are. They left no message.
Have been getting these calls asking for someone else to collect debt everyday since last November. Everytime I told them not to call, they said they would remove me from the list. But still getting the calls.
Called, left message asking to call them. They call about 3-4 times a week. Call back, just rings. I just got this phone number.
Asking for someone else, have been getting these calls forever now, and everytime i tell them not to call, no one is here by that name, they just hang up.
Called me regarding a recent Dell Purchase. Said that I owed them $110 above my already invoiced order> I called Dell and gave them the info.
if you type *60 281 647 4152 you will automatically block this number from ever calling again :-)
UFC calles here every Weekday. When i answer they asked for someone i do not now and i told them 4 times now that they have the wrong number, but they keep calling.
they called me nd sounded like a gurl nd said their lookin for some one or wrong numer or somthing it was broken up nd could hear that well nd then it like cut out or hung up
These people call daily. They don't leave a message the one message that I did get I could not understand the male voice.
Actually got a hold of someone doing collections for an old user of my phone. I think US Sprint. Called at least 2 times a day on a do not call registry number.
These people have called me several times leaving messages to call. I wrote the NC Attorney General's office about them, but they still call.
Called for my ex-husband who moved out 3 years ago.
Why is a collection agency calling when I don't owe anyone any money? They leave a nunber to call back - yeah right.
who are these people?
This is an annoying collection agency!!!
we get numerous calls from this # everyday! 6 times in the last 2 days! no one speaks on the other line. who is this?
Called 11/6/06 at 4:50 p.m., 11/7/06 at 8:27 p.m., and 11/8/06 at 5:19 p.m. FINALLY left voicemail msg that Jack called, ext 2508 but gave no indication of the nature/intent of his call. My number is on the do not call list.
Keep calling and they don't say anything, then they just hang up!! It is getting beyond irritating!
Returned call to advise NOT TO CALL AGAIN. Phone just rang and rang; no answer. The muffled voice a female stated her name was Ms. Vincent at Ext. 1104.
This is a debt collector called Universal Fidelity. You can contact them at www.ufccorp.com They are a frequent violator of debt collection laws. They blatantly violate the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. They have called me numerous times looking for someone who used to have my phone number over 5 years ago! I tell them each time that he is no longer at this number and to stop calling. They say they are taking my number out of the database but they just keep calling. Under federal law, once you tell a debt collector not to call you on the telephone, they cannot call you anymore. This is true even if you are the actual debtor. These guys are bad actors.
they called me at home LOL. It is actually a yahoo number. They are claiming i owe lowes money. THey say there is a complaint in against me. So i ask for the court system and docket number and they cant find it.. THey are Universal Fidelity Corp
i got call from this number every morning! very very annoying!
recording asking us to call this number: 281-647-4152
Caller ID reads: 800-580-8450
Called and demanded that I give them my CC number. Became abusive when I refused.
CAlled my cell phone, demanded to repay the loan I did not make.
Called cell phone, I didn't know the number, tried to answer it after about 3 rings, nobody on the line.
Has called on oct 9 and 10 comes up UFC on caller Id. I don't answer and they leave no message.I called back and they said they are a financial co. I gave them my number that they were calling and when they put it in the system they had a wrong name to that number and said they would take my number out of their sysytem. I will wait now to see if they call again
Sprint collections - yea, like I'm paying them for someone else's bill - I think not.
Right on the money Ernest.
sprint cellular's bill collectors
ufc is constantly harrassing me. i don't know who they are, but it sounds like another one of those "nigerian scams" to me.
same as me
they have called me 3 times in the last week. sounds like the middle of a mall with noone on the linje. then they hang up. nice. next time their getting the air horn!!!!!!!!
recieved call on cell phone i called the number back to see who it was they mumbled something about Fidelity financial and did not give me any info so i don't know who it is.
I get calls from these people about 3 or 4 times a week. No one is there, then the phone call times out and disconnects. VERY annoying. Now I just pick it up to stop the ringing and hang up immediately when I see UFC on the caller id. Do they really think people are going to hold the line so they could solicate business after harassing the heck out of their potential prospects? I report them every time, but the calls just keep coming. There are 2 or 3 telemarketing numbers that continually call.
just sent a message to you but forgot to include my zip code (11971)llast date they called was 9-16-06
Called my cell phone, which displayed "name unknown". Has made many attemps to call over past few weeks,
This is a Collection Agency, they are very rude, and ruthless. Would not advise paying anything to them as they will attempt to charge your accounts without your authorization. Be very cautious!
this is a collection agency
Couldn't understand their accent. But sure wasn't falling into their scam
Called cell phone, I don't know the number, did not leave message
asked for my son to call them. he does not live here.
