This is just one of Comcast collection numbers, they also use 866-500-2439 and sometimes they will appear as "Anonymous". I'm sure they have more.

Six months ago, I called to cancel my service, (I only had internet service) but they made me an offer (too keep my service) giving me free TV and with select HBO channels, waiving the installation fee along with lowering my monthly cost by approximately $12.00 per month.

That didn't happen, I was charged $120.00 install fee, an additional $10.00 per monthly fee for an extra TV outlet, plus a $7.00 TV fee. So instead of my bill reducing by $12.00 per month, it actually increased by $17.00 per month. My fault, I should have known this was going to happen, it's not the first time it's happened.

Problem is, It's impossible to get these type pricing increases resolved over the phone, most times your get someone from overseas with broken English that it's impossible to communicate with, they will promise to correct the billing only to find out the next billing cycle it's still there and now additional late fees start accumulating. This is there method of operation "MO", keep you on the phone for hours at at time, pass you from one representative to another, where no one knows what the other has promised and it just continues month after month. There betting you'll finally just give up and pay the new pricing. It's how they work. It's a percentage game to them.

For those who are not aware, Comcast recent settled a multi-million dollar law suit for just this issue.

Rather than call to disconnect my service this time, I boxed up the equipment and dropped it off at one of their outlets. That's the fastest way to have it disconnected without having to deal with their retention department who will promise you the world to keep you from disconnecting.

Now, two days later, there collection department is calling relentlessly. I'm just waiting for there adjusted final billing, once I get it, I will be forwarding it to the law firm who sued them recently along with a copy of my complaint to the FCC. They will never get another dime from me!

This caller said he was calling from a Microsoft sub-contracting company that was supposed to check my computer for viruses. Turned out it was a complete scam, requesting $120 to clean out computer, and ended up deleting several files of mine and locking my computer so I couldn't get into it without taking it to a pro. Don't talk to these guys and don't believe a word they say. Pure BS.

Posing as IRS agent with Indian accent and very poor English. I have been roasting them by calling them over 120 times so far. They try to block me, but, they can’t. I am keeping their number busy and they are very frustrated. Please call them and ridicule them, etc. I have offered them “Tandoori Rats”! I do believe that they are working for a big organized crime group in India. If I had the time and money I would personally travel to India (and believe me I am very persistent) to get them. I am very annoyed with our Government for not educating people on TV programs about these scums. They are thinking to change their number because of me. Who sells the toll free number to these scums?? I really want to know...........

585-633-2849 - SCAM FAX. How it works is that scammer contacts a business and wants to order parts. Scammer then requests to pay via Credit Card, which is stolen, but not yet reported as stolen. Once the parts have been ordered, paid for via the as of yet unreported credit card, and then shipped, the scammer will report the card as stolen and the business who sold said scammer the parts is now out the parts, the shipping and the money is taken out of their account. While I never had it happen to our business, I've seen it happen to others. The scammers spiel, copy and pasted verbatim, is as follows : Hello, This is Michael Smith ,Please i would like to know if you stock the below Fleet Guard Filter and SPARK PLUGS........ 1:-Fleet Guard Oil Filter Parts #:-LF9080 QTY:120, NGK SPARK PLUG Parts#:- BKR5E-11 QTY:250, NGK SPARK PLUG Parts#:-BKR6E-11 QTY:250, NGK SPARK plug Part # PLFR5A-11 QTY:500, If you do have any of these listed above FILTERS AND SPARK PLUGS in stock, Will need you to get back to me with price and availability on any of these parts you have in stock...but if you don't have them in stock,i will need you to try and special order them for me while i will prepaid with my credit card Details.I will be expecting your response asap today.

Collection agency

When dealing with a collection agency:

(1) THEY have to show that you owe a debt & that they have the right to collect on that debt; insist that you will not pay anything until they give you this proof. NOTE: the courts are very specific about what is required for this proof and REQUIRE this proof if you ask for it.

(2) After a certain amount of time has passed since last payment on an account, you can no longer be sued on that account (approx 3 - 6 years). Search online for

Okay so this number has called me over 120 times over the past 4 months. When they first called looking for this person I advised them at that point to not call again. They asked all kinds of questions seems like a debt collector. I started blocking their number and checked today since they called and I have over 5 pages of blocked calls on my cell phone. It's time that it stops.

Don't answer but call back. You'll hear name "Career Institute". Press 1. I got "Alex" insisted to get info on how to find out how he got my number. Told it was from an online form requesting info. Asked repeatedly to provide IP address and details of form. Given #888-246-6664 for "customer service". Answered by guy in India and had to ask 4 times to get him to stop reading selling script and insisted I was given number for customer service to provide IP address for form I did not complete. Told customer service number was busy. Called 618-221-0181, told there was unusually high call volume so waited and GOT ALEX AGAIN! AMAZING! Told him number provided was for a $100 Walmart gift card promo, was transferred to a female who said to try 855-246-6604. "Jeff" answered. Told form filled out 10:44 am Eastern from ip 68.202.120.66 off a site called www.123bizopportunities.com with name "Shaun Chowdery" (sp). Then told it would take a few days for my number to be removed from robo-dialer. Original call from robo-dialer approximately 1 hour from "form request". Amazing, they did not leave a message asking for Shaun. And why would I be in a robo-dialer for days? Why would someone just not try to call Shaun back and leave a message for him if he did not answer? Hopefully this will be enough detail when I report the number to the Florida Do Not Call registry. LOL

Watch out if you get a call from this number and the guy says he's from cashnetusa. I already filed a complaint with the FBI and talked to a customer rep at cashnetusa.com:
12/16/2013 Jim Adams called and left a message that my bank had accepted my loan(?) 12/17/2013 Jim Adams called and left the same message. (I had deleted both messages after I called him back.) He told me that he was from Cashnetusa and to call him from his office number and that I was approved for the amount of $2,000 and that I had to verify my information. He already had my account number and just wanted me to repeat my routing number. Then, I had to verify my name, birthdate, and last 4 of my social. He told me to put $120 on my card so that he can verify that I have $120. After, I put it on my netspend card, he told me it was illegal for him to get into my account to check to see if the money was on there and that I needed to buy a Vanilla Reload Network card and then call him back to tell him what the number on the back is. I kept making him reassure me that he was not going to take the money because that was all I had and he said it was just to verify that I had money. After, I gave him the number, he told me he would call me back in 45 minutes with the good news. After 45 minutes, he called and said that I got some insurance that would pay 4 months if I lost my job or could not pay; that I got health insurance for 12 months free; and a free health card. I told him I already had insurance. He told me that the insurance required $110 on another Vanilla Reload Network card and that the insurance would pay back the $110 plus $2000 to equal $2,110 in 30 to 45 minutes. I told him I did not have that money; why could he not take it out of the $120 that was already on the 1st card? He told me that it had a hold on it & that I could not access it for 2 hrs. Finally, I told him that I wanted to cancel it and he told me that I had to pay a $70 cancel fee.

This scammer just called me on my cell phone and I wanted to make sure no one gets caught up in his scam. This caller will claim to have a large sum of money only available once through the US Government in the sum of $10,120. He will also say that in order to claim this money you must pay the sum of $99 in order to receive the larger sum. Do not give any banking, SSN or any other personal information. The caller's phone number is 202-697-7222. I have already reported him to the FTC.

This guy called about an approved loan. He was supposedly from "Prosper.com". It is a scam!!!! Hang up as fast as you can. They said I needed to pay $120 for collateral because of my poor credit score. Then they said I needed to pay an additional $198 for the taxes on $1500 I was supposed to have been approved for. They told me that I had the money and it would be deposited in my account as soon as I paid the money. No thanks!!!

This company sucks. They raised my rates over $120 for a 6 month policy renewal. I told them I was cancelling it since there was nothing in my driving record to warrant a rate hike. Their reply was "the state of Florida allowed us to raise our rates, so we raised them". Okay, then raise the rates on the people involved in accidents, not everyone across the board. I then got an email from them after I cancelled this renewal stating that they tried to charge my credit card for the renewal (after I cancelled!) but it didn't go through. Now they are calling me. Crappy company.

Caller "Alyssa" claimed to be from the collections department of Local Business Yellow Pages. She said my business was 120 days past due on charges of $676 dollars. I believe this is a scam because we have not used phone book listings for over 2 years. I will call my old Phone book company and verify that their was no incidental charges that might lead to this but I highly doubt it.

I called back and it was supposedly a verification of the "ship to" address for a recent purchase. And then started the spiel for some 14 day trial of a special discount for only $1.00, $29.95 a month if I didn't cancel before 14 days 2as up. $120 in free gas vouchers, etc, etc. Being a firm believer in "if it looks too good to be true..." I declined. No one gives you $120 in free gasoline for $1 without a catch somewhere.

This number has called me over 30+ times in the last 3 weeks with them calling me in excess of 8+ times a day on two seperate days right before Christmas. They now call me everyday once at least and it is always at lunch or dinner. I am on the national do not call list and resigned it 3 weeks ago to make sure which doesn't stop them. In searching the number I am assuming its Caprio collections. I had an idea about this and it turns out they are trying to collect $120 from a Cleveland Clinic bill I have from 2008 that I have actual physical proof of paying and the copies of the cashed checks. I was informed CC has thier own collections so I am thinking these guys are fraudulent. I will be filing a complaint with the FTC and I was advised to call the Ohio attorney general to file a complaint as that is supposedly the quickest means to an end.

These guys also claimed to be from a Law Office in AZ. My Lawyer is filing a complain with the bar association in AZ. I hear those jails of Sheriff Joe Arpaio get up to 120 and you get to wear pink. Enjoy

Left a long message, saying they purchase used Cell Phones, please give them a call, if we have any old Cell Phones to dispose of. Then said they pay anywhere from $50 to $120, depending on make and model of Cell Phone. Apparently these people DO NOT check the Do Not Call List, before making these phone calls!

1-866-933-6013 - Just received a call from "Duh-nee-shi-uh" (There's no telling how her real ghetto name is spelled) from a company called "The Premium Gifting".

Oh yes! That sounds SO legit, don't you think? :::sarcasm:::

In the voicemail message that she left, she claims that the call will be her "Final Attempt" at trying to contact us, as she tried to contact us before.

I know for a FACT that that's an outright LIE, because this was the very first time EVER that that particular number showed up on our Improved Caller ID records. Nice try, but you FAIL at lying.

On that same note, she never once stated exactly WHOM she was calling for. How very strange...
So exactly WHOM in my household supposedly won this New Car?!?

Oh, but wait a second, she changes her tune and then goes on to state that unfortunately we didn't win the new car, but someone in my household DID win 1 of 4 Top Prizes.

Oh, but then she then states, once again, that someone in my household won a New Car. Are you seriously that stupid "Duh-nee-shi-uh"?

The best part of this SCAM phone call, and it IS a SCAM phone call (which we WILL be reporting this call to the FCC, FTC, AT&T, and your HOST Provider as a SCAM phone call), is that she goes on to state, and I quote : "Oh, and I'm WELL aware of the Do Not Call List, so DON'T be reporting this call!"

Wow... this company sounds like a real class act... -.-

A man called my previous home phone number; said they were from Vista (Enterprises?) and wanted to speak with me; the man had the last four digits of my credit card number and proceeded to tell me about a promotional mailer that was or would be coming to me which contained $120 worth of "gas vouchers"; I asked him who gave him my information and he said he didn't have that info; I told the man this was an unsolicited and unwanted call and offer and to remove me from there listing and to send nothing to me.

They tried to offer me a $120 gas card! They said all I had to do was pay the $2.95 shipping.. SCAM!!! I kept telling the girl no I was not interested and she said ok, I will mail it to you and only charge the $2.95 shipping and you can go over the information and if you are not interested you can call us and cancel! I told her no, do not charge my card for any reason and hung up! How can I take my number off of their list?

This started maybe a month ago when a man calling himself Frank Garrett started calling my cell phone and cussing me out. I have NO FUCKING CLUE what I did to him but he assumes that I called him and cusses me over and over and over. First few days it came from this number. Then the number was blocked and it actually said "Duncan Co." as the caller ID. Since Mr. Frank is such a big fucking bad ass, I told him to come down here to Coconut Grove, Miami Florida and talk that shit to my fucking face, and when I threaten to have the calls traced he just says he don't give a shit, and says he will beat my neck or something.

Now he calls every few days. I understand this is some old asshole (claimed he was 72 in one call, and 120 in another. I think he is in his mid 50's or late 60's) that has nothing better to do but call people cause he's probably living off a fucking retirement fund and got a bad ass computer to make his number untraceable, but this shit is fucking ridiculous! I called the police a week ago and they told me they couldn't do nothing about it, and I even kept it documented how often he calls, one day the asshole called 6 times, and when i didn't answer he left 2 voice mails. Whoever this "Frank Garrett" is needs to be fucking arrested for harassment. This shit is not funny and I am goddamn sick of it.

These people said they were calling from vista services because of a purchase I made on my cc and that they were sending me $120 in gas cards. They knew my address AND THE LAST DIGITS OF MY CREDIT CARD! I told them, at least three times, I do NOT accept the sales pitch and any charge to my credit card would be fraud. The guy said I had agreed to a charge of $5.95 (?) for shipping the gas card--which I had not and, as noted, had said at least three times I did not approve. I will monitor my card to see if they do charge anything. If so, it will be fraud, which I'll challenge. But someone needs to arrest these guys and put them in prison for at least a yaer--making them pay for all costs of the investigation, prosecution and imprisonment.

Well, gang, I did some more light homework as no one since Wanda has shown the initiative. All signs point to a very illegal debt collector named H&P Capital in Jacksonville. Spelling counts .... Without the ampersand you may never find the ridiculous volume of complaints on Ripoff Report, debt 'n' credit discussion boards, and other mystery caller forums.

The letters no doubt correspond to principals Henrion and Pooler. Its former name was reportedly ''Legal Mediation Practice'', a name ripe for misuse in bogus payday loan threats. Here's what former employee ''Donnie'' had to say in April 2009 in a related 800Notes thread for #904-672-1021:

''I worked for this company for years, it was LMP for years and they recently sold it to H&P. They were sued over 120 times in the 4 years I was there (seriously) and they never won a single suit. They will settle out of court because it's too expensive to fight them all!!! Just keep accurate records of times and their statements and FILE THE LAWSUIT!''

You will also easily find many more lawsuits against these thugs, one as recent as last month. May as well add yours to the pile if you are contacted by HPC and your rights are trampled, which will likely happen by default.

I actually DO owe money for services provided by Greenville Memorial Hospital. Despite making regular payments, I was turned over to this ridiculous scamming collection agency because I did not pay off my full balance with GMH in 120 days. However, it took them OVER A YEAR to turn me over, all the while, I had no idea where I should be sending payments. Three days after I received the notice from Medical Revenue Services, I received a nasty, threatening phone call on my CELL phone. The illiterate collector demanded money be paid in full at that moment. I refused to pay until I knew they were a reputable company and she said, "I'll put you down as an absolute refusal." Funny, it's been over three months and I'm still getting an OCCASIONAL letter or phone call...some urgent matter! :-) HAHAHA

Today I received my 12th call from this number. This is the first time I've actually answered the phone. They informed me that they were calling about my Visa card and my recent use of it. Because I am such a good customer they were going to send me $120 in gas dollars within the next 5 days and to watch for it. They then wanted to confirm my mailing city. When I inquired as to who was calling they again said they were calling about my Visa card which ended in and they gave me the last four digits of a Visa card I have. It is an Only 1 reloadable prepaid Visa card which currently has $6.95 on it and hasn't been used in a few months. When I told him that I was going to end the call, he immediately hung up. I called back and got a recording to leave the phone number the message was left on and someone would call me back regarding my order. Without putting in that number I was unable to leave them a message. I've reported this incident to Only 1 Visa and have canceled my card. I've also reported them to the Do Not Call Registry. When I've done this in the past with other scamers it's ended the calls.

Just got a call from Sallie Mae for this number.

Due to unemployment, my government student loan is over 120 days past due and right now I refuse to apply for a Forebearance. I asked the foreigner to identify his company and he finally did. I then stated that I would gladly talk to an American born citizen. He said something about I could call the main Sallie Mae customer service number and I replied that it repeatedly went to the Phillipines. While I was talking he hung up on me.

This is the seventh phone number that has been used in the last two weeks. I am collecting them in my cellphone and when they call I open the cellphone to hopefully document receiving the phone call on my detailed monthly phone bill. Below is how I have coded the phone numbers into my cellphone.
I do not mind talking to an American born citizen every two weeks, but I will not be talking to two different companies with three different departments everyday.

Another new number, they called at 8:41 AM, but my Panasonic Phone was still on Night Mode, so it never rang, and they got my Voice Mail, all I heard was a click, when they hung-up.

I did not speak to him he called and said I had put my name in to win a new Car. I did not win the Car but I did win one of the top 3 prizes. He said his name was Billie and he knows I am on the do not call list and this call is not a solicitation call he left this 800# and extension 120. I called and there was a answering machine I did not leave my name.

Called and told me I had won a $120.00 gas card rebate. All I had to do was verify my credit card #. Asked to speak to a supervisor. They hung up. Tried calling the # and it is busy.

Received a call early this a.m. -- all I could hear was static. I hung up and called back to get an answering machine. I told them to call me immediately, I wanted to talk to a person and find out what this is about. Received a call about 2 hrs later. I was told I qualify for $120 gas cards because of recent purchases I made with my Visa card. I asked who was calling and was told Vista services. I told her I did not appreciate her looking into my account to see what I had purchased, I am on the NATIONAL DO NOT CALL LIST and she is to remove my phone number from her records and NEVER CALL ME AGAIN! I then hung up. Have looked up this caller ID and found multiple complaints about this company. Luckily, the last four numbers of the Visa card she read to me is for an account which has been closed due to fraudulent charges. I hope she tries to charge something on that number - then my bank will be all over her!

I answered the last call and it was from Vista Services. Some scam about how since you are a preferred customer of Visa they are sending you $120 in gas cards and all you have to do is buy these magazines, etc.. FYI - I told them a week and a half ago to take me of their list and they just started calling me from another number.

Here is what I suggest:

Create an ad (advertising anything) on Vancouver CraigsList (http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/) and use their number and extensions in the ad. This should load their phone system for a while. Also probably good to use the 866 number (1-866-530-8472 ) in the ad as that will probably cost them money. I would suggest advertising something popular that will cause a lot of traffic.

The extensions for 360-892-6151 :

119 - Debbie Sandstrom
212 - Candy Snyder
211 - Tim Little
114 - John Kelly
120 - Nicole

In September my husband and I got a call from these creeps at Treasure Coast Readers stating that they neede to verify our information for some magazines that we supposedly ordered from them. They had our full names, address, phone numbers, social security numbers, and all of our bank account information. My husband told them that we did not want any of what they were selling and that they needed to get rid of our information and leave us alone. We closed our bank accounts and opened a new one as soon as we could. All fine for three and a half months. Then we recieved a final notice from them stating that we had to pay a $120 or it was going to collections. When we called them we found out that they will not allow us to cancel this, even though we have not recieved one magazine, and that it is for seven magazines for the next four years. When we asked what magazines they were we were told that that was confidential informationan and they could not give that to us. Then we discovered that they have all of our new bank account info as well. They also refused to give thier names and standings within the company and also refused to allow us to speak to a manager. We have done our research on this company and have discovered that they have lost a accreditation with the BBB. Gee I wonder why, all they do is scam people out of money. They are nothing but identity theives and frauds!!!!! My question is: Why wont the State of Florida shut them down? I am sorry to all of those that have or are going through this, because I know how stressful this is. Some one needs to figure out a way to stop them.

I received a partial pre-recorded message from this company today. At the end of the recording they provided the following information:

800-860-0644

120 Corporate Boulevard
Norfolk, VA 23502

I did a Google search on the address, and it came up as Portfolio Recovery Associates.

There are a LOT of reports about them being Fraudulent, and producing phony affidavits, etc.

Here are some of the links, check these out for yourself!!! One of these is even as far back as a legal complain filed in 1997!!

HOW can companies like this be in existence?? I will be filing a complaint with the FTC and with the BBB about this!

I hope others will file reports as well! These types of practices need to be stopped!

The calls started coming on 11-16-10 by the 3rd day they were calling 4 times a day on my cell. The first day the number came up and then the other 2 days it came up either unavailable or with the number from the 1st day. I finally answered and I was at work. As it was I was annoyed with whoever for calling constantly and being at work I wanted to get them off the phone so not thinking I gave them the info and agreed to what they had to offer. When I answered a man came on the phone said I was a preferred customer of Visa and that I had won $120 in gas rebates & he was going to connect me to customer service to give me more info. Then I am connected to a woman who tells me the same stuff but adds that I will also get free subscriptions to various coupon mags and other mags. I had 30 days to cancel but I could keep the $120 in gas rebates. If I did not cancel my card would be charged $11.99 for each subscription on a monthly basis and there were 4 of them. Then I was asked to verify the last 4 digits of my credit card and zip. But she knew this prior to having my punch the numbers on my phone. Both spoke very quickly. Something made me call my husband after to tell him. He said it sounded like a scam. Sure enough it was. Thank god I called him because the credit card number these people had was my debit card which was linked both to my savings & checking. They would have cleaned both accounts out. I had to have my debit card blocked and a new one issued as well as get my name on an identity list theft list. I can’t believe I was so stupid!

FYI: Portfolio Recovery Associates, Inc., 120 Corporate Boulevard, Norfolk, Virginia 23502, USA. 757-519-9300.

They have 41 phone numbers listed to their company to get around blocked numbers.

How the BBB works. The BBB will not take action against a company unless their are substantial amounts of legitimate complaints that can be prosecutable or the company has committed a felony. The number of reports against a company do contribute to the BBB rating of that company, which can hurt that company when trying to obtain clients. I have filed complaints with the BBB before, and they do in fact take the reports seriously. The last time I filed a report my credit card number was stolen by an employee of a company I purchased scrubs from. When the company refused to investigate who stole my credit card number, I filed a report with the BBB and got a response within 2 days. Within a week I received a call from the company and the BBB letting me know the offenders were caught and prosecuted.

In short, always file a complaint with the BBB if the company is breaking the law. You will be helping us all in the long run.

These people said they were calling from vista services because of a purchase I made on my cc and that they were sending me $120 in gas cards. They knew my address. Who are these people? I tried calling back and it was a recording saying that I have reached the confirm sales dept and if I didn't want them to call press 2. Well I hope they didn't charge my card with something.

They do not leave messages on answering machine, they hang up. Call 2 to 3 times a day. They are giving away $120 in gas coupons for ordering on the Internet, they know my last 4 digits of credit card. They are programs that I will receive in the mail, I have to pay for shipping & handling. I hung up. I'm not going to give someone my credit card information on the phone. I'll order from Amazong.com, other known companies, but not phone calls like this.

You can get $1,000 for harassing calls originating from a debt collector. Do Not Call list does not apply to collection companies. The FDCPA federal act does.

Other sites have reported this as Portfolio Recovery Associates, a debt collection company. If you have a collection company harassing you with repeated calls (especially with an automated dialer), failing to identify themselves, or at odd times of the day, etc., they are in violation of the Fair Debt. Collection Practices Act.


It makes no difference if they are dialing your number by mistake or you actually owe money, you can collect up to $1,000 by fed. law plus any actual damage under federal law (the Fair Debt. Collection Practices Act). There is a site www.stopdebtcollectorsharassment.com with full FDCPA info and how to collect on the $1,000 under federal law. Good luck to ya.
