vonagecharles calls from 2 phone numbers:
this is now the sixth number they have called me from, all different area codes, shady people, all i know is that i do not owe them any money
I have been receiving calls daily, beginning on 3-26-2010. I have never answered and no message is left.
I receive several calls a day from these people on both my home and cell phone. I do not answer them. My daugher answered yesterday and said it was a recording.
They are in flagrant violation of the FDCPA - they also call with a number and name which will not show up on your caller ID if you block their number from calling you. I have a marvelous software program which will backdoor this sort of activity and have turned them over to our attorney for prosecution. They are rude and that is a light term for their unprofessionalism and are using scare techniques with debts that are usually out of the statute of limitations. Take notes and file on them for every unlawful act. We are fortunate and have no debts that would warrant their activity - ours were paid long ago and to the originating creditor. Have a field day with them - they deserve it.
They called looking for my uncle. When I told them the situation, the lady got very serious & started threatening with the words "very serious charges" and even made a flat out mockery of him fighting overseas. She was extremely beligerant, blatenly rude, completely disrespectful of my uncle, as well as all military that are fighting for our rights...risking their lives for our freedoms!
A female called about some legal matter from some client and refused to discolse anything and wanted me to verify some personal information so I refused abd she hungup one me
just received a call, or actual they started to leave a voice message but then cut off in the middle...lucky me
i never keep my cell phone on. that way they are forced to leave a message and that allows me to google the phone number.
im 18 years old. why the hell is this person calling me? i live in south texas!
I just received my first call from this agency (CRA). The lady was rude and tried to get me to write down a toll free # (866-946-1358) then transferred me to a Mr. Sitton. He was very aggressive and kept asking me to verify my personal information (name, address, ss#, etc) and I wouldn't. He got very defensive and said that I had a collection against me for Citibank from 1993 and I told him that I didn't and he kept going back and forth with it and I continued to say that it wasn't mine and if I had been mine the statute of limitations ran out 10 years from the date of the collection. He got really upset when I said that and said that a 1099 would be filed against me with the IRS. You have to stand up to these rude people and know your rights. He said that I needed to accept the payoff amount and settle it today. I laughed and said calmly, "sir, I do not have this debt and even if I did you stated the debt was charged off in 1993 and the statute of limitations is 10 years. Have a great day" and I hung up!!!!! I googled the phone number 843-278-0375 and came across this site and many others that have complaints against these people. I urge you all to go to ftccomplaintassistant.gov and file a complaint. The more people that file a complaint, the greater the chances are that the government will shut them down. DO NOT give them any of your personal information. If they continue to call and harrass you, report them to your carrier and request a trace be placed on your line. The next time they call notify them of a trace that has been placed on your line, and that a recording is being made and local law enforcement will review it for harassment prosecution. This will end all of your calls! God Bless you!
Got a call from someone named Willie Mason, a female whom said she had an important legal matter to discuss but would not tell me what the matter involved.
I got also a call from 843-278-0375, but all you people that are writing about this number i will advise to do not worry and if they call you must curse them and hang up. 843-278-0375 is a collection Agency located in charsten in SC, this agency buy creditors debts for penny on the dollar for profit. all debts from the creditors have a stature of limitation and once the stature is up the creditors write them off as lost debt and then sold to agencys. no one has to pay these debts. the agency are using ilegal tactics to scare all of you to pay, do not be fool you do not have to pay no one, because all the collection debts on the agency is all beyond of stature to limitions, and actually all workers sitting on ther little desks wating to make a large percentage profit on collected debts they all could go to jail because it is ilegal according to the laws of the FTC for any collection agency using bad language, false information, make up names, acting as a govewrnment agent which is false etc.. all this is ilegal and the agency 873-278-0375 will be closed and all workers doing time in federal prison. so if they call tell them to go to hell and kiss your ass and tell them that the federal authorities will soon be knocking at there door where ever they are hiding, usually this agency works underground so they won't be caught all of you do your reseach and find them and take those roaches out of the ground they have no power over you all they wan't is money, as much as they can and remeber you owe them nothing all debts are written off and beyond the stature of limitations the law is on your side i am glad to say so God Bless and continue the good fight using the law against 843-278-0375 and the so called cra.
One of the a$$holes just called, asking for a relative, not listed on this number. Would give no information except it was very important to have this person call back to a toll free number and all that b.s. I listened to him give the number [877-311-7782] and said "uh huh" and hung up.
Son does have a very old bad debt which he was told some time back would be forgiven if he sent a money order to some person, not a business name, and for much less than the debt was for. That's the type of business they are in.
Or maybe it was the $1.08 hospital bill he supposedly never paid, but which was billed wrong to insurance, for which he got a cell phone call yesterday.
Make your day by blocking your number from their caller id and calling them back, over and over, and at all times of the day.
I just got the call too. He referred to me as Thomas which is not my name. He said his name was Scroggs from CRA and I needed to call him right away. Something serious was going on down at the station that I was probably not aware of. He's correct I have no idea what he is talking about. I let the machine get it. The number he left was 1-877-311-7782.
Let these people talk and give them no information. I have bookmarked this and will check the progress tomorrow.
Just recieved a call from 843.278.0375. The man wouldn't give me his name but he said he was calling from CRA in Greenville, VA. He stated that he was going to send my outstanding credit card account to the IRS as unclaimed income by the end of the business day if I didn't pay it. Can you really send a credit card balance as unclaimed income? He was very rude so I gave him my credit law firms number and I just hung up on him. What the hell do they think they are doing? Now my whole day has been ruined by this a**hole.
I have now gotten two unwanted calls from this number.
It appears to be a collection agency.
I am not aware of have any outstanding unpaid debts, much less any that should be in the hands of a collection agency, nor is there any such indication on my credit reports.
This number has continued to call my land line. If they are offensive, threatening report them to your carrier and request a trace be placed on your line.The next time they call notify them of a trace that has been placed on your line, a recording is being made and local law enforcement will review it for harassment prosecution. This will end all of your calls!
Said that they needed to verify a statement made by my husband and that he needed to call back ASAP. We will not be calling back.
This type of communication is exactly what Debtor/Creditor law was designed to alleviate. I can't believe these people actually think their bullying and harassment techniques will be effective. They should be stopped. What they are doing is illegal and unethical. unfortunately, for people who owe money, their humility may make them more susceptible to be taken advantage of.
I received a voice mail on my cell phone saying I needed to call ASAP. I did and inquired to what sort of company CRS was. He wouldn't tell me unless I gave him my name so I gave him my first name. He told me they were a filing service. I told him not to call my cell phone and hung up. A minute later he called back and said "Robert ________, Now you need a lawyer" and hung up. I called back and he blocked my number. What a jerk.
They will pretend to be from a government agency but they are really a outsourced collection agency. Banks don't really have the money that you borrowed. They make it out of thin air by just typing that amount into your account. It's called fractional reserve banking. It's a form of counterfeiting. How can you owe somebody something that you borrowed when they themselves didn't really have it to begin with? go see. www.truthring.org Don't be fooled into thinking that you will go to prison. We no longer have debtor prison's.
Got a call from this number today, asking o speak with my aunt. The lady who's name was Christine stated that my aunt need to get a certified attorney to get in touch with her by the end of the day. Her tone was very nasty and she left a toll free number which was 866/946-1358. This company has away to get hold of your cell number and because it's in the person's name that they are looking for they interrogate you. These are very threating phone calls and they need to be told to stop. Someone could have a heart attack from these calls. Yes everyone has financial problems and the world is in a recession. I know half of the ones calling people are in debt too, so to owe a debt should not be foreign to them either!

File a complaint with the FTC via the web at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov
You can submit as much or as little info as you want but if enough people "complain" with at least the company name, CRA, and the phone number, hopefully the FTC will get involved and shut them down or at the very least make them revise their tactics.
