They are calling the wrong person. I do not have any debt and they are looking for some guy that moved out of this address 5 years ago. NO I do not know him, but the neighbors told me he moved out back then. My next call is to the Att Gen office and the BBB.

Scum sucking pig debt collector.

Caller ID is BCR 877-788-1057. Its a landline in Washington DC. Bureau of Collection Recovery Inc., 7575 Corporate Way, Eden Prairie, Minnesota 55344 These are AT&T's pond scum debt collectors. They will not clear your debt. They don't even care if they are seeking the former owner of the phone number. In my case they wanted me (not a negro) to pay for the funeral of a negro minister (250-07-4832) who died in 2000 per social security death list. Seems that his negro felon son (229-96-7687) (who died in 2003 per social security death list) was too cheap to pay for his Dad's funeral. I suggested that they go dig the ole boy up, dump his ass out on the ground and repossess the casket to settle the debt since he is not my kin. Actual debt holder probably is Edith (his wife) or Gregory (other felon son). She still resides at 3138 Truxton Road, Augusta Georgia 30906 (he's in the pen). One of them has a social security number that ends in 0081.

Tired of calls from this # and similar #s building up on my Caller ID . . . . . no messages left on answering machine . . . . . I answered the phone and heard what I expected to hear, i.e. somone asking to speak to someone unknown to me. I told the Caller, "{That person} doesn't live here; I don't know {that person}; and if you don't stop calling my #, I'll report you to the authorities". {click} Hope he got the message!

Who are ''they'' who won't let you record, Texas? Your state has a single party consent law like about two-thirds of the nation. Also, no debt collector is going to spring for the six dollars to send you Cert Mail. Its lawyer might do so if you're already in litigation.

Karen, I will say it once more for you and for every other ''not me'' case. Stop beating your head against the phone waiting for unresponsive reps and make your demands on paper. A shifty collector like BCR will ignore verbal requests precisely because you cannot prove you made them.

They don't let me record the call, so unless it is certified mail correspondence I have nothing to say.

I am getting this call frequently and they keep asking for Kathy. I have told them to take me off of whatever list my number is on. I have told them I don't even know anyone named Kathy and that I will call the phone company to have them monitor my incoming calls if they call again. Sometimes it is a man and sometimes it is a woman. The first few calls was a recording that apologized for keeping me waiting but if I would hold an agent would be right with me. I always hung up.

they also use the numbers 202-607-2748, 202-607-2731, 952-259-1101, also the number will appear on the caller ID as 011-860-3318050, 011-860-9673143, 011-860-3318050, 1-877-458-1070. the amazing thing about this company is that they call ask for someone else and then want you to ID yourself. They just called and asked (not disrespect intented) for a name theat sounded indian. However, I have an common english name that is HARD to misprounce, when I said there is no one here by that name I hung up. They called right back (before my hand was off the receiver) and asked for another name. They don't give upand I don't even know who they are looking for or what they want.

Darryl: Send a cease-comm via USPS Certified with card. The FTC and many consumer watchdogs explain how to draft and send one.

Richie: While I don't discount a spoof theory, once in a while a collections rep will use a personal mobile phone to do his business in "stealth mode".

I checked the number online at 411.com & it's someone calling from a cell phone in Washington D.C. This is a scam number trying to get information or want money from us.

"Michael B" was correct. Dunning by postcard or any other method which breaches privacy is illegal. Calling a workplace once told to stop and making threats are also illegal (but common) tactics. I hope he filed suit since he had a pretty strong case.

If you are receiving misdirected or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the FDCPA, which regulates collector behavior and provides you simple tools for your own defense. It grants you control of how you are contacted, and collectors can be sued for their crimes. Learn your rights and first response tactics at FTC-dot-gov.

I received a call from them on a land line, it was a lady with a strange accent looking for my Mom. We are not behind on any payments or anything like that. I think they are calling to get personal information from us, so I told them that "she wasn't here" & they rudely hung up on me. Ever since then,they never call back.

They just call my work again from a cell phone that traces to Washington, DC. This is just 1 of their phone numbers. They Also have an office in PA and MN. They are a collection company used by T-Mobile, Sprint, Nextel. They don't think that the FDCPA laws apply to them. Very rude and THREATENING. Also can't talk english very well. The last peerson was obviously reading from a script. They have been told several time NO PERSONAL CALLS AT WORK, but aren't smart enough to understand. I have contacted the FTC regarding their contiued harrasment and disregard of the FDCPA laws. Last week I got a postcard from them advising me that I HAD BETTER PAYUP. Debt collection using postcards is ILLEGAL!!!

When I pick up, auto dialer tells me to call BCR at 888-276-8572. Based on other comments, it sounds like it only gets worse if you call them to tell them to stop. I currently get 1 call per day for the last 2 weeks. I'm going to check with the phone company to see if I can block this number from calling me.

Another cell#202-607-2731 is being used. When I pick up a recording says to call BCR at 888-276-8572. I've never called, figuring it's a scam. They've called every day for 2 weeks-very bothersome.

This company calls numerous times a day. I'm aware that they are a collection company, maybe! They don't speak very good english and very hard to understand. I've told them many times the person they are looking for do not live here and not to call back. Even after threating with turning them in to the Atterny General for harassment. One person made a note of it and I didn't hear anything from them for a day. Then they started calling again about 10 times a day from what I can count. Starting at 9am and ending at 9pm. It's bad when you get calls that are not for you and they don't have the respect to try to stop calling after being very stern with them.

they have been calling me 2 times a day for all of a month, I also made a complain with the FCC, and the rhode island attourney general, and the rhode island PUC, if you call them back and ask who they are they hang up in your face, how I wish they were operating out of rhode island.

I keep getting calls asking me to call BCR and they give me a toll free number to call back. If they won't tell me what HCR stands for or just who they are and why they are calling, I will NOT NOT NOT answer the phone and I will NOT NOT NOT call the number they give. Maybe they'll give up if they ever get the hint that I am NOT interested.

It is a computer dialer. Programed to call at all different times and records when someone actually picks up the phone. This way agents know when to call and have best chance of having someone pick up the phone. Basically just trying to find out when someone is home and thus best time for agents to call.

They are people representing a collection agency and they also try to trick you by calling from 202-607-2732 and 2733. They call like 4 or 5 times daily, idiots!

These are people with strong foreign accents representing a collection agency that get off by harrassing debtors 4-5 times a day. Watch out, they also call from 202-607-2731 and 2732 also. Idiots!

I've documented since March 5th that someone with a non-English accent has been calling from this number representing an agency called BCR or PCR or something. Oh my God, they're calling now as I'm typing! They also call from 202-607-2731 and 2732. Idiots! They call at least 3xs a day, if not more. I'm filing a police report for harrassment and then sending them a certified letter to the company that they represent.
