FROM ME:

Where else are they getting information about you? From those surveys that claim to reward you a “free” laptop or some other “free” doodad that'll end up costing you more money in the long run because of the crappy quality of the “free” whatever. You don't even have to finish the survey to give these bastards what they want – the teeniest bit of information about you. If you don't want the calls, don't fill out the surveys. It's as simple as that. I keep saying that there're “free lunches” anymore.

So you say that you put your name on the national DO NOT CALL LIST. Well, bully for you! That would take care of about 2% of your harassment calls, if that. These bastards who keep calling, though, don't play by ANY rules except their own. The best thing to do is for YOU to be vigilant about who calls you and make use of your phone company's BLOCKED CALLER LIST. You may complain about it being an extra expense you can't afford. Well, that's up to you. If you don't block them in some way, then you deserve to get those harassing calls. Don't sit back and depend on a national DO NOT CALL LIST to end those calls. If your phone company doesn't offer a BLOCKED CALLER LIST, find one who does. I think it's a small price to pay for not hearing about some new way to separate me from my money or lower my credit score.

If you're one of those people who feels they have to answer every single phone call, train yourself not to. You won't hurt a telemarketer's feelings by not answering, trust me. THESE BASTARDS DON'T HAVE FEELINGS. They don't care if you're a soccer mom hauling around a van load of kids or CEO of your company. They just want your money or information about you and they'll do whatever to get it. Not every phone call is so earth shatteringly important that you have to answer it!

Lastly, my question is why post a message to those bastards here that says, “Stop calling me!”? That does absolutely no good whatsoever. Are you people really THAT naïve to think posting a message to stop calling you is going to end the harassing phone calls? Think about it.

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

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

I have recv'd calls from this # several times over the last few days. Every time, my caller ID says "RCS Center Corp". Each time they have called me, they ask for someone whom I have never heard of. I tell them each time that this is the wrong #, but they keep calling. Today I told them to take me off their list...we'll see what happens. Sounds like 'D-' is having the same issues. I just did a search for RCS Center Corp and found one article that was interesting: http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/073/RipOff0073773.htm

I loathe this 'global vantage' outfit! They claim my wife is in arrears on her AMEX card. Its a company card to which she is simply a signatory. I mean how can you take anyone seriously anyway, who with a thick Indian accent, claims to be Brian Jackson! You have got to be kidding me! What a tossa. Anyway - I feel everyone else's pain and frustration, just seems that nothing can ever be done quick enough by authorities to stop this kind of invasion of privacy. I mean here I am in Australia, at home with a silent telephone number (not published) getting calls from these turds! Whats the world coming to!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Possible Solutions!

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

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

I hope this helps someone.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

These creeps call every day. They use different numbers, but always leave the exact same message on my machine. That's how I know it's the same people. It's a woman with an Indian accent...she says "Hello, we are trying to reach you today. It's important you return our call. Our toll free number is 866-265-7685." They also use the number 201-210-3618, but it shows up on caller ID as unavailable. The 703-547-6545 number does show up as TATA COMM on my caller ID.

 Apr 17th, 2008
Started 2007, continued into this year. Some type of collection agency looking for a lady that has never lived at this address since the house was built (several years). I will also add that I do not know this person nor have I ever heard of the person. Had discussions on almost every call, explaining the above, but they call back over and over. One caller had "Indian" accent. Promised not to call any more. So much for "promises"! Where is "Do Not Call" help with these type calls.

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

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

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

A guy with an indian accent and a pushy attitude called and asked for 2 of my friends, he had a heavy indian accent and gave his name as Jimmy Adam (???). I told him I can get the message to them, he wanted their phone numbers (???) which I did not give him and he did not like that, and when I asked him where he go my number from, he said that my friends gave it to him which I know is a lie. but he left a message with the phone number 800-363-4816 x 5110, and a business file #.
Caller ID on my phone: 201-210-3618 Name ID: unavailable
Caller: Global Vantedge (I looked up their phone number online)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We get three or four calls a day from these people looking for "Isabel" No one by that names lives here. I have told them to take our number off their list several times including today. I received another call from them within 10 minutes of their first call. I called them back and another man with an Indian accent promised to take us off the list. He gave the address as P.O.Box 3458, San Rafael, CA.

Google the companion telephone number 201-210-3618. According to those subbmissions this company has called and asked to speak to children by name and inquired about neighbors. Their description of my brother-in-law's case, although scant, seems uncredible.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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