Swanson V Midland Funding
Date of Action: 12/12/2012
On December 12, 2012, Midland Funding, LLC settled a lawsuit filed by Lori Swanson, Minnesota's Attorney General, against the company last year for filing unreliable “robo-signed” affidavits in collections lawsuits and sometimes targeting the wrong people for payment of old bills that it purchased from credit card companies. The lawsuit alleged that Midland filed thousands of collections lawsuits against individuals in Minnesota courts, often supported by unreliable “robo-signed” affidavits generated at Midland’s St. Cloud, Minnesota offices. Several Midland employees admitted in sworn testimony to signing up to 400 affidavits per day, either without reading them, without personal knowledge of their contents, and/or without verifying the accuracy of the information contained in them.

The Consent Judgment requires Midland to: provide individuals with validation of the debt; verify the identity and address of an individual claimed to owe money at the outset, before any collection effort is made, investigate the matter and, if it cannot substantiate the debt, close the account; take steps to correct any adverse credit reporting, and not later resell the debt; not file affidavits w/ the court unless the person has: a) read and understood them, b) confirmed the authenticity of any documents filed w/ the affidavit, c) only based the affidavit on the signer’s personal knowledge, and d) signed the affidavit in the presence of a notary who acknowledges the affiant’s signature in accordance with law; implement standards to ensure it does not sue people on debt that is beyond the applicable statute of limitations; implement procedures to ensure it does not sue people on debt that it does not own; may not pursue a default judgment without giving the person written notice that their response does not constitute a legal answer and waiting 30 days so the person can seek legal counsel or otherwise respond to the lawsuit; include added specificity about the facts supporting its claims in its lawsuits so that individuals can meaningfully respond to the suits against them; at least 10 days before it pursues a default judgment against an individual, send a copy of the judgment request to the individual.

Under the Consent Judgment, Midland will also resolve outstanding and future consumer complaints made to the Attorney General’s Office and pay $500,000 to the State of Minnesota.

So remember, when dealing with these scumbags remember that you have rights:
Federal law (FDCPA) requires them to send you a letter (US MAIL ONLY) within 5 days of their first contact that contains their name, physical address, the creditor’s name, and the amount of the alleged debt. It also must contains “mini-Miranda” telling you that it is an attempt to collect a debt and that all information will be used for those purposes. The one other important thing that this letter must also have in it is that you have a right to dispute the debt within 30 days of the date of the letter and if you do so, all collection activity must be stopped until the debt is verified.
Read up on your rights here, get template letters to send and also make a complaint at this government site: http://www.consumerfinance.gov/
Also file a complaint with your State Attorney General's office and the California AG’s Office: http://oag.ca.gov/

December 22, 1993
Ms. Kimberlee Arbuckle
MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT
500 West First Street
Post Office Box #576
Hutchinson, Kansas 67504
Dear Ms. Arbuckle:
This responds to your letter dated December 2, 1993, inquiring whether Midland Credit Management, Inc. ("MCM") is a debt collector under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act ("FDCPA" or "Act"). You report that MCM "purchases portfolios of delinquent accounts receivable for the purpose of profitable recovery, resale and cure. These accounts are owned solely by MCM . . ."
Section 803(6) of the FDCPA defines the term "debt collector" as "any person who uses any instrumentality of interstate commerce or the mails in any business the principal purpose of which is the collection of any debts, or who regularly collects or attempts to collect, directly or indirectly, debts owed or due or asserted to be owed or due another." In our view, a party that purchases delinquent accounts from the party to which the debts were originally owed and attempts to collect them from the consumer debtors fits clearly within that definition. The party is attempting to collect debts that were "owed or due another" and the fact that title to the accounts is passed to the collector in no way changes that fact.
In the leading case on point, involving a company whose business included the purchase of large volumes of checks that had been dishonored and subsequent collection of the checks from their makers (in the same manner as MCM buys defaulted accounts and thereafter attempts to collect from the account debtors), the court wrote persuasively that the purchaser is covered by the FDCPA. It gave short shrift to the fact that the party had actually purchased the checks in question:
By use of the language "owed or due another" Congress was attempting to exclude those entities that extend credit from the effects of the Act. Congress intended to protect borrowers from "third persons who regularly collect debts for others." (Italics by court; citation omitted). (The purchaser) is a third party collecting a debt originally owed to another. . . . It cannot escape the spirit of the Act by the technicality of purchasing the debt upon default so that title technically rests in itself.
Holmes v. Telecredit Service Corp., 736 F. Supp. 1289, 1293 (D. Del. 1990)
The only theory for exclusion of a party such as MCM from the "debt collector" definition (and thereby from coverage under the FDCPA) is that it is a "creditor."(1) Section 803(4) defines "creditor" as "any person who offers or extends credit creating a debt or to whom a debt is owed, but such term does not include any person to the extent that he receives an assignment or trans-fer of a debt in default solely for the purpose of facilitating collection of such debt for another." Since the accounts that MCM buys are delinquent when purchased and are being transferred for the purpose of collection, we believe that MCM is within the class that the "creditor" definition expressly "does not include."(2) The words "for another" at the end of the clause excepting assignees from the definition of creditor in no way changes this result:
(T)he excluding factors in the exception are that the debts are the result of an assignment or transfer and that the debts were already in default at the time of assignment or transfer. With the phrase "for another" at the end of the exception, Congress merely intended that the debts should have originally belonged to another and that the creditor was therefore in effect a third-party or independent creditor. (Italics by court)
Kimber v. Federal Financial Corp., 668 F. Supp. 1480, 1485 (M.D.Ala. 1987). Accord, Holmes, supra, at 1293.
In sum, it is our view that a party that obtains consumer obligations in default for the purpose of collection is a "debt collector" under the FDCPA, even if that party actually purchases the accounts from the original creditor.
The views set forth in this informal staff opinion letter are not binding on the Commission.
Sincerely yours,
Clarke W. Brinckerhoff

I am an Ilinois Licensed Attorney. A client of mine was called by 720-324-2649 which claimed to be the "Williams Law Firm" of Colorado and they had her social security number and threatened to have her arrested. There are several lawyers registered with the last name of Williams and several law firms with Williams in the name. I spoke to a Ryan Coleman and I gave him my bar number asked for information and to speak with an attorney and was put on hold for 20 minutes and then they hung up. I have called back several times an received the exact same treatment. My office phone number must now be flagged because they don't even talk but just put the number on hold.

If anyone figures out if this is a real lawfirm or some other company please let me know because I might file a class action. 815/229-7246.

It is a violation of the Colorado Code of Professional Responsibility to threaten arrest or prosecution to collect monies. Here are the Code Provisions.

Rule 4.5. Threatening Prosecution
RULE 4.5. THREATENING PROSECUTION
(a) A lawyer shall not threaten criminal, administrative or disciplinary charges to obtain an advantage in a civil matter nor shall a lawyer present or participate in presenting criminal, administrative or disciplinary charges solely to obtain an advantage in a civil matter.
(b) It shall not be a violation of Rule 4.5 for a lawyer to notify another person in a civil matter that the lawyer reasonably believes that the other’s conduct may violate criminal, administrative or disciplinary rules or statutes.
COMMENT
[1] The civil adjudicative process is primarily designed for the settlement of disputes between parties, while the criminal, disciplinary and some administrative processes are designed for the protection of society as a whole. For purposes of this Rule, a civil matter is a controversy or potential controversy over rights and duties of two or more persons under the law whether or not an action has been commenced.
[2] Threatening to use, or using the criminal, administrative or disciplinary process to coerce adjustment of private civil matters is a subversion of that process; further, the person against whom the criminal, administrative or disciplinary process is so misused may be deterred from asserting valid legal rights and thus the usefulness of the civil process in settling private disputes is impaired. As in all cases of abuse of judicial process, the improper use of criminal, administrative or disciplinary process tends to diminish public confidence in our legal system.
[3] The Rule distinguishes between threats to bring criminal, administrative or disciplinary charges and the actual filing or presentation of such charges. Threats to file such charges are prohibited if a purpose is to obtain any advantage in a civil matter while the actual presentation of such charges is proscribed by this Rule only if the sole purpose for presenting the charges is to obtain an advantage in a civil matter.
[4] This distinction is appropriate because the abuse of the judicial process is at its greatest when a threat of filing charges is used as a lever to obtain an advantage in a collateral, civil proceeding. This leverage is either eliminated or greatly reduced when the charge actually is presented.
[5] Moreover, this Rule does not prohibit a lawyer from notifying another person involved in a civil matter that such person’s conduct may violate criminal, administrative or disciplinary rules or statutes where the notifying lawyer reasonably believes that such a violation has taken place.
[6] While it may be difficult in certain circumstances to distinguish between a notification and a threat, public policy is served by allowing a lawyer to notify another person of a perceived violation without subjecting the notifying lawyer to discipline. Many minor violations can be eliminated, rectified or minimized if there is frank dialogue among participants to a dispute.
[7] Rule 4.5(b) provides a safe harbor for notifications of this type. Other factors that should be considered to differentiate threats from notifications in difficult cases include (a) an absence of any suggestion by the notifying lawyer that he or she could exert any improper influence over the criminal, administrative or disciplinary process, (b) consideration of whether any monetary recovery or other relief sought by the notifying lawyer is reasonably related to the harm suffered by the lawyer’s clients. Where no such reasonable relation exists, the communication likely constitutes a proscribed threat. For example, a lawyer violates Rule 4.5 if the lawyer threatens to file a charge or complaint of tax fraud against another party where issues of tax fraud have nothing to do with the dispute. It is not a violation of Rule 4.5 for a lawyer to notify another party that the other person’s writing of an insufficient funds check may have criminal as well as civil ramifications in a civil action for collection of the bad check.


Colo. RPC 8.4(2012)
Rule 8.4. Misconduct.
**reflects changes received through March 13, 2012**

It is professional misconduct for a lawyer to:
(a) violate or attempt to violate the Rules of Professional Conduct, knowingly assist or induce another to do so, or do so through the acts of another; [for example knowingly allow employees to threaten arrest]
* * *
(e) state or imply an ability to influence improperly a government agency or official or to achieve results by means that violate the Rules of Professional Conduct or other law; [for example imply that you have power with police to have a person arrested]

602-225-5880 just called our office. Call claims to be coming from Phoenix, Arizona. It's an automated robocalling machine with a woman's voice that clearly started it's little spiel before we even answered the phone. The robocall claims to offer you the option to update your 2012 Google company listing. Yes, the machine actually said 2012. Today is November 14th, 2013. Seems the spamming moron didn't bother to change the date on his robo machine. Either way, the call was recorded and a copy of it is being given to the FCC.gov website for reporting. Call also offered NO Opt-Out options, not that they would have honored the Opt-Out anyways, seeing as how they are violating Federal Law just by auto-dialing and robocalling. C'mon FCC, either do your job of tracking down and shutting down these scumbags, or you'll be voted out and shut down.

They are the most stupid people in the world. My parents are now deceased. Their mortgage got sold to them. My Mom passed away March 2012 and so I notified Ocwen of that and I asked how to go about getting things taken care, as my brother and myself were the executors of the estate. Well after 5 faxed copies of my mom's death certificates and 5 copies of the front page of the will stating that I was a co-executor, they finally talked with me. Side bar--they never asked for anything proving that I was who I said I. FINALLY the decided to talk to me and I told them to just go ahead and foreclose on the house as the estate was bankrupt. This was in May of 2012. They have continued to call and ask for my dad, then my mom and then they acknowledge that they see I am "XYZ" and "yes we can discuss this with you, but we would prefer to talk to" my mom and dad!! I finally told them that as they were aware of, my folks were both deceased. No they did not have any other number to be reached. No they do not have cell phones because my dad wouldn't use one and I know for a fact we didn't bury Mom's with her. That even if she did have a cell phone that they were both buried 6 feet under the ground, in a casket inside of a vault and I was pretty sure that they had no cell phone reception since I was pretty sure a cemetery qualified as a dead zone. Their response? OK, well please have them call us back at their earliest convenience. The estate attorney even sent them a letter telling them to quit harassing me. Now some other bank has the loan and has foreclosed on the property as of 7/23/13 and I have received 27 calls since August. I quit answering a long time ago, but they keep calling. Lord help us all.

Received two calls today. One from 313-355-5246 and the other from 207-221-0506. - OK THREE NOW! - They called again from the 207 number. Definitely a SCAM. When I asked her which one of my cars needed warranty, she asked, "do you own a car between the years of 2003 and 2012". She hung up on me when I politely asked if they were calling for me or my boss - since this is a work phone. They must not know names of the people they are dialing. Most everyone has a car within 2003-2012. If they call back and if I have the time, I may act like I only own my 1999 vehicle to drag it out for them. I'm going to report them now to the gov't website below.

I have no idea who is calling. They have called at least once a month since March 2012 until now (June 2012). The phone only rings twice and they never leave a message. I have not tried to answer the phone when the number shows up. Googling the number and looking at several sights has only brought up that the call is from Asheville, NC. Also, my phone number is unlisted so I don't know how they would get it.

Received a strange call, which he followed up with this email, which included an attachment requesting financial information of our company. There is no website, no address just two email addresses gmail & yahoo.

My name is James Ross Rodda and I work for a Florida-based accounting firm with over 35 years of experience serving our business community.

As of December 2012, $20 (TWENTY) Billion still remains to be paid from BP's Damages Fund to businesses and business people who were affected by the 2010 oil spill Deepwater Horizon. We have done claims as small as $2,000 & as large as $7,500,000 with the average being $112,000.

If you feel that your business may have been affected YOU ARE DUE PROPER COMPENSATION. It is my job to ensure that you receive the money you deserve due to their negligence, damage to the environment and the the aftershocks to our economy.

We all wish this had never happened, but if you have been wronged, they are legally bound to pay--and for a limited time you can still claim your piece of of the damages fund.

Your privacy is guaranteed and our consultation costs nothing, we only make money when you are paid, as a small fee of the rewards--just 15%. (BEST PRICE IN THE INDUSTRY!) As of May 1st 2013 we will be raising our fee to 25%.

Regarding your claim from BP Claims we would need Gross Sales numbers from January 2007 thru December 2012 to determine claim amount & type of claim. Please send all information to: Gary.Wittock@yahoo.com

I look forward to your call, I'm always available at 239-877-2885 or at JRR.Naples@Gmail.com, please reach out to me directly at anytime.

It's RACHEL!!!! Card Services - Lower your interest rate! DON"T ANSWER! Must be a new number - it's one I haven't seen before and added to my spam directory.
Caller: spam - card services
I have been getting a lot more of these calls lately.
When they call just hit speaker button twice that cuts them off before they can leave a message on my voicemail that I.have to clear out. You can Google the number and find out who and where it's from .
Card Services. Says it's my last chance to lower interest rate. They've been calling for years. It's really a debt consolidation scam. They're looking for people with more than $10,000 credit card debt. Tell them you're paid up and they'll hang up on you. But they won't stop calling. Pressing 2 or 9 or whatever does not remove you from their sucker list neither does speaking to them in person.

Three more calls to report today (Wednesday 2012-12-12), two new to the bombardment of calls I get:

602-547-6857 @ 2012-12-12 11:24am - ARIZONA (new for me)
269-768-2550 @ 2012-12-12 02:41pm - NOVATEL
973-273-7826 @ 2012-12-12 03:19pm - No Caller ID Name (new for me)

I suspect these may be part of the same scam organization that stuck my number in their auto-dialer almost nine months ago and has been harassing me ever since. The "ARIZONA" one might be Bell Road Toyota, but they're probably using the same scumbags to make calls on their behalf. More detail and numbers that have been bombarding me with calls are listed in my posts here:

I did not pick up this call because the caller ID said "Unavailable" and it was three rings, which is a signal from Cox Telephone that it's a telemarketer. I appreciate you all posting what this latest irritating wave of calls is.

Do you think the Do Not Call list or any official in Washington cares about this?

Are the telephone companies somehow complicit in allowing this? Since they control the numbers, if we complain directly to them, shouldn't they be able to act?

Home Security Co or someone casing my home????

I turned my ansvering machine off- and I just ck the caller ID -don't answer the phone if I don't know who it is. . - It has reduced these scam calls considerabely but not completely eliminated them . Yes this number is a new one for me - Card services - have been calling me for at least 3 years now . If i report them eventually they will stop calling - but only for a while - then they start up again and the same cycle starts. I report them they stop - and start again . This is definately an invasion of privacy in my peaceful home . It is sad that the authorities do not get serious about this problem . They can easely stop this if they want to. But i guess we don't pay enough taxes for the Congressmen and women , senators and the rest - who are in majority educated lawers that we now have running our country and distorting our constitution to the max. - God blee the US of A and all of us.

Just got a call from them. Everytime I get a number that I don't recognized I look it up on one of these. Thanks so much for the oportunity to check these out, so that at least I know not to call. Every time I find out about these scams I add them to my directory as spam, so I know not to pick them up. Darn, I have received so many that my directory is full, now I can't identify them any more.

I really wish there was something that we could do to stop them. I just never pick up a call anymore unless I recognize the name or number.

I receive these calls in great quatities. And like Big Guy, I have started turning off the answering machine and just let them ring. It slows the call amounts for a short while and then they start up in bursts again. Thank you for your posts and am sorry some got stuck answering these bogus calls. I heard someone started answering these calls with "911 what is your emergency?" and they hung up the phone in a hurry!

Since February 2012 I have received at least 112 calls from 51 phone numbers. These calls are usually from Rachel or Ann with information on credit card reduction rates. Of course if I press #1 and wait to talk to a person, they hang up before I can get any information from them or ask them to remove my number from their call list. And, if you try to call the number they used, either the phone won't ring or you get a recording about no such number, etc. In February 2012 I did ask DONOTCALL for help (via email) and for a short while, the calls stopped. They are coming again full force, almost every day. If anybody has a good solution to get this stopped, I would be interested.

Starting in November, 2012, I have been reporting these spoofed calls to both Loyola University (the real one in New Orleans, area code 504), and the FCC. On the few occasions when I have picked up such a call, the line has immediately gone dead.

Loyola has told me that the calls must be coming from their automatic phone system that is used to contact alumni to solicit donations, and that something must be wrong with the machinery. None of the numbers, which start with 504-861-58xx, match up with any numbers at the university's site. The phone may sometimes ring 30 to 50 times!

I have every reason to believe that the person behind the calls is someone who is stalking me -- just to be a pest, simply to let me know that he knows where I am, when I turn off my lights to "hit the sack", and when I am most likely to be home. The calls come almost invariably between 6 and 6:30 PM.

The FCC has heard abundantly from me about these pesky calls, using this person's main business name to identify him. I think I may have made some solid hits, because the attacks with the spoofed phone calls have intensified. There is now a whole list of 504 and even 519-966-35xx and 646-558-35xx numbers with the ending numbers of 19, 37, 39, 43, 44, 45, 52, 77, and 79.

The wackiest part of all this is that when I go out to work on my yard (I live in suburbia with lots of lawn to mow), he makes sure I know he is in his windows that overlook my yard, taking pictures and videos of me.

Could I depend upon the police to call him to account? No. He is very wealthy; his family owns property on Long Island, New York. Technically, I am poor, living on Social Security and not much else. He has even had an attorney from another law office write a "snippy" letter to me, full of threats. I called this attorney, and she proceeded to make more threats against me!

Police take his word about anything -- including lies about me. The courts kowtow to him; he has nothing better to do than to drag his neighbors into court to try to get them thrown into jail or a mental hospital. He and his roommate have abundant connections to the entertainment business here in this city; no one is going to say anything against them. (They are on the board of directors of VooDoo Fest; Google that name for the whole story from 2012.)

I pray constantly that no one else -- who has had the misfortune to have this person and his roommate residing next door to them -- has suffered the indignities that I have endured now for well over a decade.

The number showing on my caller ID is the phone number for Directory Assistance, so I knew the call was some scam not using a phone number for the actual caller. I don't recall the name the man used for the "business," but he said his home repair company was affiliated with the Extreme Makeover Homes program. The offer he was making was to come inspect our roof for any recent storm damage (we had a damaging tornado in this area in early Spring 2012) for repair or roof replacement. I live in a condominium community. All the condo roofs were inspected AND replaced Summer/Fall 2012. I told him all the condo roofs were replaced last summer. This has got to be a scam.

Okay, be frugal and keep a budget. Got it. Meantime, nobody in this very short thread spanning five years has discussed your implied ''running from responsibility'' or how to live like a welfare queen on a swipe card. The general thrust is the highly suspect and illegal activity of a major high volume debt collection agency, one long and well known for clawing at people's assets by violating their rights.

In May 2004 the FTC fined these scofflaws $1.5 mil for falsifying reports to the credit bureaus, violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

NCO Group to Pay Largest FCRA Civil Penalty to Date [press release]
http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2004/05/ncogroup.shtm

NCO Financial has since been in trouble with and fined by state regulators in Pennsylvania and Texas, January 2006 and December 2008 respectively. In February 2012 NCO was penalized over a half mil by a consortium of *nineteen* other states. How does anyone piss off 42% of the nation and the federal government and still sleep a full night? You want me to ''dig my own grave'' and get buried? If they come calling here THEY can go first!

Caller sounds to be an 18 - 25 year old male who calls anywhere in the daytime according to EST and occasionally between 7:00PM and 4:00AM. Caller makes a myriad of various nonsensical statements and unintelligible noises. This prank caller has on multiple occasions impersonated a police officer, a collections agent claiming to represent Optimum (Cablevision company serving my area) and a Chinese restaurant owner. The calls at nighttime generally consist of incoherent and nearly inhuman noises, most likely in an attempt to scare the recipient of the call. The prank calls started in August of 2012 and persist throughout, intensifying as of December of 2012. According to the voice heard, the caller sounds to only be one individual.

This is a telemarketer, robot call to my cell phone. Had four messages in row on 12/31-2012, another on 12-27-2012 and others. Called, got invitation to win $5000 by pressing 1 on my cellphone, ignored, then got message to Press 1 to add your name to Do Not Call list, then musical notes and a Hang up.

This dishonest company is trying to be ‘an annoying stalker’ from Oct. 2012. They are calling almost every day and do not live any message. I am on the The National Do Not Call List (DNCL) and had a phone call to DNCL, 1-866-580-DNCL (3625), November 19th 2012 and had conversation with John Robert. This guy from DNCL did not want to write down the dates when I have this so annoying call; this John Robert might only to read the Unsolicited Telecommunications Rules. I was forced to interrupt him and had continued these rules by myself. I forced him to write down all dates but I am not sure that he did this. But he promised to transfer my complaint. November 19th 2012 I had 24th phone calls from 1- 866-801-1526. And today, January 2nd 2013 I had this annoying phone call #40 at 9:52 am from 1-866-801-1526. This John Robert did NOTHING with my complaint.
I would like to ask DNCL for what they get the wage???? For doing NOTHING??? Shame to both these companies – and to ‘Junk-stalker1-866-801-1526’ which has a pleasure to call a second year, and to DNCL, 1-866-580-DNCL (3625), that does northing and gets a wage.

'Tis the season. COURAGE PICKUP, a relative of Courage Center, called me again, and again, and again.

Note:
COURAGE PICKUP continually calls me even after being asked politely to lose my number; to stop calling my number. However, they called numerous times, and I expect they will continue to do so. Although Courage Pickup is a nonprofit organization, they are harassing me by calling me so frequently, and after my request to stop calling me. Here are the dates and times they've called me this month (I don't have them all):
12/27/2012 - 5:07pm
12/26/2012 - 9:14am
12/23/2012 - 8:51pm
12/21/2012 - 12:49pm
12/19/2012 - 12:38pm
If they think I'd assist them after so many calls, they're crazy! I call this harassment because I've asked them to stop calling me!

My called ID showed that WASHINGTON was calling on 12/20/2012 and again on 12/28/2012. I assumed it was Obama contacting me about the upcoming fiscal cliff, and he needed my help. I didn't answer the phone on 12/20 because, quite frankly, I didn't give a darn. But now that Christmas festivities are over and our government needs to come to a decision very soon so we're all not taxed up the wazoo, I answered. It turns out that it wasn't Obama calling; instead, it was some company telling me that I could sign up with them for "free one year security service" to replace my existing security service. I never initiated this call; I'm quite happy with my security service.

So consumers beware: who would sign up with a security service for free when you didn't initiate the business deal? No one should do that. This could be a scam that could be very costly. Give the keys of your house to the thief and watch what happens!

Here is their contact info:

The research company they are calling for is called EKOS

I too had a call from this number yesterday morning, 11/18/2012 at 10 am in the morning. The same thing showed on my caller ID: "Privacy Manager" there was no message left. I have not even attempted nor bothered to try calling the number back. It has been blocked through my phone service. I, as well, belong to the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY. Perhaps our info is being hacked by these 'online invaders of privacy'.

Call received from a purported Michael Stone on or about 11/15/2012. I've received calls from this entity before on another telephone number I used to use, but the entity used a different call back number than the current (800) 214-5382. My recollection is it's some sort of scam involving old debts past their statutes of limitation or something like that. The caller, Stone, makes vague references to a complaint being filed, but gives a case number, which is apparently not a court case number, but a number the entity uses. He asks you to call "before going on the record," whatever that means. Notably, he does not say, "before filing suit" or "filing a claim," et seq. I'm surprised this moron is still at this game. The last time I ran a phone number for this entity, there were a lot, a lot of complaints. Maybe its started using a new number.

11/18/2012. I received two calls today from a "private number" and I have been unable to find out the actual phone number, but it sounds like a similar scam. The caller says he is calling from Phoenix, AZ and has an offer for a $200 gas card for me. (Not at all from Phoenix but in fact from over seas.). During the first call i said i wasnt interested and told them to remove me from the list. I repeated that instruction during the second call, at shich point the caller started yelling at me, saying that they do no exist to take orders from me. Funny when I stated that I am an attorney (true) with connections to the prosecutor's office (also true) and that I was reporting them to the Secretary of State (also true - for my home state), he hung up. I will be reporting these to FCC and FTC as well as my state AG and Secretary of State.

Received this call today @ 4:53pm (11.15.2012-Thursday) and number on the caller ID (718) 416-6122. An automated voice comes on the line offering a reduction on interest rate on a credit card and I assume its on the one and only card I have. So I hold on the line and a person (monotone and low speaking) comes on the line and I ask "what company is this offer with/from?" The person hadn't and didn't identify himself or what company he represents and just responded to my question with ":Are you interested in a lower interest rated care Visa/ Mastercard-Captial One Card?" And I quickly get this is a card company wanting me to APPLY for a card with them and I am SO not interested or remotely desire another credit card! Anyway, I'm in mid-sentence and the representative just HANGSUP IN MY FACE!!! I find this RUDE AND OFFENSIVE and REALLY ANNOYING!!! I WANT THESE CALLS TO STOP!!! How DO THESE COMPANIES/BUSINESSES Think they can harass and mistreat citizens//consumers like these??!!??

(800) 611-1911 is from Southern CA Edison, telemarketing division, soliciting people to sign up for a monthly flat rate charge to their existing electric accounts.

During August, September and October 2012 I got called almost 3 x per week, and my requests to not call me, I'm not interested, kept getting ignored.

I had to call Edison and speak to a supervisor to end the harassing solicitations. The flat rate (same $$$ each month) for 12 months would have cost me more, than what I was averaging. Edison took the highest bill, times 12, to give the highest flat rate possible.

Strange that your bogus call hit at 7:58 PM. I was hit with a bogus call at 7:46 PM 13 November 2012. This looks like several sources are doing scattershot calling at about the same time. In fact, according to my Caller ID, I had two calls hit at that exact same time, one from 202-505-5383, the other from 504-861-5879! This is getting weirder and weirder! Now, to go report both calls and others to the FCC and the FTC!

7:46 PM. Actually November 13, 2012. White Pages reverse look-up produced Bell South, New Orleans, La. and an Unlisted landline out of Kenner, a city in a neighboring county. The phone rang 50X before stopping. This is the second time this week I have gotten a call like this. Is this really from Loyola University in New Orleans? NO! I ran the number against all the listed numbers for the university, and it produced no results. I am reporting this to the alumni office. NOTE: What is even weirder is that according to my Caller ID, at exactly the same time, a call came in from 202-505-5383!

***UPDATED INFORMATION*** on the scammers Let's all get them at their own games.

I looked the company up on the Better Business Bureau website. They have a grade of F. In addition, they live in an apartment in Florida, but yet they use a Utah number (possibly a magic jack or vonage number). Here is the address of where they are located. We should all send them tons and tons of junk mail to get them back from harassing us with their calls. Report their address to as many locations as possible. Also, I looked the company up on Florida's Business registrar directory. Below is that information. Everyone call and harass them. They are a male and female, living at the same address with a lot of different scam companies.

This company consists of a guy and a lady who are scammers. Look at all the information I found:

Lbarbados reported Riley James Associates from 888-479-9480 as a Scammer/Fraudster
Nov 13th 2012 - 6:24:34pm PST
Yes I am receiving calls and recorded messages from this number 888-479-9480, stating they ate calling from Riley James Associates and contact Emily Thorn. Its very overwhelming at times. In seeing that they call my home, work, family and any number that maybe associated with me. I have reported them to the FCC and any other method that comes my way. I really wish that they can be stopped. But may have to come to the radiation that they will change their number, or sell my supposedly account and this nightmare of a process will start all over again. I dont see their point unless it to annoy the heck out of me! A simple letter will do?

I looked the company up on the Better Business Bureau website. They have a grade of F. In addition, they live in an apartment in Florida, but yet they use a Utah number (possibly a magic jack or vonage number). Here is the address of where they are located. We should all send them tons and tons of junk mail to get them back from harassing us with their calls. Report their address to as many locations as possible. Also, I looked the company up on Florida's Business registrar directory. Below is that information. Everyone call and harass them.

It is Allied. But this may be good for you! If it is regarding student loan default, their is a new repayment plan via the government as of July 11, 2012!! It is income based. My example is take home wage is $400 weekly, so I pay $35 a month for 9 months and the default status goes away, and the bad credit file with credit agencies will be expunged. Also, penalties will be taken off.
You have to know this is not going away until you die. So if it can change your life for the better, then look into it.

This is NOT Nielson, it is a debt collection service using a spoof through Pacific Telecommunications in California to spoof the Nielson caller ID. 800-366-9800 is a number that is registered to Pacific Telecom and they sell the number to spammers, bill collectors and worse to use to spoof caller ID modules. It happened to me (they were actually calling for the couple who had my phone number before me... they hung up when they found out it wasn't them...) and here is an article from Wikipedia saying it happened to more than 50,000 other people; "In June 2012 a search on Google returned nearly 50,000 consumer complaints by individuals receiving multiple continuing spoofed VOIP calls on lines leased / originating from “Pacific Telecom Communications Group” located in Los Angeles, CA (in a mailbox store) in apparent violation of the FCC. Companies such as these lease out thousands of phone numbers to anonymous voice mail providers who in combination with dubious companies like “Phone Broadcast Club” (who do the actual spoofing) allow phone spam to become a greater and greater problem, if not huge at this point."

The FTC just took down 5 of these scum suckers. Obviously they have more to go.
http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2012/11/robocalls.shtm

What To Do When You Get an Illegal Robocall; http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/robocalls
1. Hang Up. Do not press 1 or any other numbers to get off the list.
2. Consider blocking the number
3. Report it at http://www.fcc.gov/complaints
4. Report it at https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov
5. People should continually file complaints with their Attorney Generals office.
Register your phone numbers online at http://www.donotcall.gov or call 888-382-1222 (must call from # you want removed).

I have greatly reduced the number of calls to my cell phones by going to my carriers website (Verizon) and they allow me to block up to 5 numbers for 90 days. Since these scum change numbers every 30 I have had a very peaceful time. Call me once shame on you, call me twice shame on me. I also put it in my contacts list under Scum Suckers and assign it NO ring tone so at least after the first call they won't bother me anymore (I have filled all of the numbers in each and am up to Scum Sucker 47 now). This is only a whack-a-mole solution however it is the only one I can offer.
If you want to stop these calls then you need to dry up their revenue source. Your phone company is charging you a fee for caller ID. Your phone company pays the scammer for sending their caller ID information. Your phone company pays only a fraction of a cent per call and you pay $5 to $15 to your phone company. The scammers send out millions of calls per day which amounts to a significant amount of money however your phone company is charging a large amount to millions of customers. This may have something to do with the phone companies inability to stop these calls. You can also see why the criminals keep calling even though they know you won't fall for their scam. If someone does make the mistake of answering the phone and falling for their con then it is just icing on the cake for them. These people are the lowest form of filth on this planet.
In order to stop this we need legislation making it illegal to charge for caller ID. If a phone service wishes to operate it would need to provide the caller ID at no charge to other phone providers and to it's customers as part of the service. Here is the $50,000 solution that the FCC is looking for and it doesn't cost anything.
Many of the disposable numbers come from Pacific Telecom Communications Group and they are currently under investigation and in the midst of various lawsuits. (The principles involved have been part of actions by the FCC under other business names). Here is an excellent blog site that I found that explains how this company is getting away with this activity.

A man from this number called about home mortgage insurance after sending me 4 letters about the low cost of home mortgage. He asked about the number of people in my household, birthday of people in my household and other private information. He set up an appointment for 2012 Nov. 11, a Sunday between 15:00 to 17:00. I thought that was unusual be agreed to it. He never showed up.

If somebody asks me to describe cellular improvement, I'd say it's the practice of making transportable units that are as helpful as desktops and could improve than them as time progresses. That is definitely just what exactly is happening. The latest research demonstrate that there are about 112 million customers in India that could be a 13% progress from very last year. Research organization also predicts that, there might be an addition of eleven million until the tip of the 12 months.

Nevertheless the exciting news on this investigate is the fact in 2010, there have been only 1% individuals making use of Internet on their mobiles which went to 3% in 2011 and 8% in 2012. Searching at these developments along with the exponential expansion it is actually predicted that, there'll be about 600 million Online users on cell globally.

All these survey sums up that cell improvement has grown to be on the list of fastest escalating and aggressive sector. Cellular telephones became the center on the earth, presented the truth that enterprises and persons simply cannot survive with out them with each of the communication and social networking feasible as a result of it. Sensible phones are particularly obtaining the form of focus which once upon a time declining pcs employed to receive. Laptops and desktops are getting impractical options for really evident rationale that they are not able to be held in pockets. So we have quite a few factors that it generation will like to do anything on the cell platform.

While you'll find sufficient cellular improvement platforms offered, but you can find few typical and well-known 1. Many of they're:

- Symbian OS is one of the favorite app development companies platform among the the builders for its rapid real-time response. It can be constructed and taken care of by Nokia.

- Android is another system dependant on the modified model of LINUX Kernel which has revolutionized the cell marketplace. The Java centered application of Android are most user-friendly.

- Blackberry OS, as its identify indicates can be a proprietary system for the usage of Blackberry gadgets. Study in Movement (RIM) also allows third bash builders to write down their very own software package making use of Blackberry Application Programming Interface (API).

- Apple is actually a progress system to generate purposes for iPhones and iPad. It is a UNIX dependent working technique derived from Macintosh OS.

- Windows Telephone is the most up-to-date platform originating from the computer giant Microsoft. It takes advantage of a style language identified as Metro which enables builders to combine the OS with third occasion services.

Not surprisingly, with so many accessible platforms you will discover countless numbers or even numerous applications which may be produced. Everybody is seeking to make their unique app by their very own, even so the discovering procedure isn't full devoid of the being familiar with of prevalent pitfalls associated to it. Lately I see lots of apps with capabilities which are not truly critical. You will find number of prevalent mistakes which I'd advise steer clear of while within the practice of mobile progress.

Stuffing far too numerous feature-

That is one of the more frequent error typically committed by new cell developers or again and again expert developers who cannot resist the temptation of introducing the many stuff they acquired. As a developer, you will need to fully grasp everything you want your app to try and do, what ought to be its exclusive characteristics and just how is it going to profit and serve its customers.

It is very important which the first edition of one's app should really only focus on the immediate needs with the user or maybe the provider you might be producing app for. Addition of even further options can normally be accomplished during the impending variations of your app. Frequent update of your app also tends to make you search skilled and popular amid consumers.

Generating difficult Person Interfaces-

The first edition of one's app needs to be intuitive and simple to work with. A perfect interface ought to be these kinds of that user learns it by simply applying it without having referring the person guide. The common cell user may not be pretty tech savvy. She or he just really wants to enjoy the functions your unit must offer you. So consider that each part, display, buttons and functions of one's app have to be properly defined to build their lives less difficult and fulfilling.

Needless to say, there are some applications with problematic interfaces which have been a great good results amongst people. Nevertheless it might be much better to start out slow with uncomplicated applications and opt for the groundbreaking applications when you've a title while in the sector. It can be crucial to produce a handbook with specific how-to area in the event of apps with challenging consumer interface.

Doing work on too several cell platforms-

It can be crucial that mobile developers will not start out creating apps for all cellular platforms. Including as well lots of characteristic and platforms for your one version will elevate your first expenditures high. You will need to do a thorough exploration and strategy out your methods beforehand if you want to establish your app for different platforms like Blackberry, Android, Apple entirely.

Five months after your FTC spanking all you have for me is a juvenile and redundant insult? Well, I suppose I can't expect a creative response from criminals. As to my life which concerns you so, none of my employers have ever been named as Defendant in federal court. None of my clients have felt that extortion and lies are part of a sound business policy. Why don't you LBA drones just admit you were all wrong and get busy making decorative coasters from those ''debt fixer'' CDs?

Previously the message was to call this number to receive a reduced rate on my card. It didn't specify the card. It is a bogus call. I am on the Do Not Call list, yet this # managed to get through.

Received this call on 11/6/2012. Caller said he was "Steve with Cool Duct AC & Heating" and he wanted to tell me about a fall tune-up special. I asked him if I had been a prior customer (knowing I had not) and he said he didn't know. I asked if he was aware of the Federal Do Not Call registry and he said no, he was just given this list of numbers to call. He offered to put me on his own do-not-call list. I agreed, reminding him that he was breaking Federal Law by calling me.

Got a call from this number on 11/6/2012 from the automated surface saying the same thing. Pushed 1 and was directed to an operator. I heard about 4 seconds of commotion and people talking, then a guy with what seemed like an Indian accent answered the phone. I asked him what credit card this was for and what it was about, and he instantly hung up on me. I am 100% sure this is a unprofessional organization attempting to commit fraud.
