This was BCR Collections. They didn't leave a message on my answering machine.
They called my house while everyone was getting ready to go to sleep. I am sick & tired of these people calling my house day & night. When I first answer the call, they had a foreign accent. Plus they can't speak clearly, very rude & impolite at all from the numbers 2730 & 2732. All they wanted was my mom or dad (passed away) they just simply said. When I asked for a message, they told me that,"This was a private matter & I won't tell you our reason for calling under any circumstances what so ever." These people are rude.
Ever since then, I'm avoiding them by letting the answering machine get it. When the machine pick up the call, they never left a message at all. Also, I'm getting calls from the same company at a 985 area code from Louisiana at 8:00 in the morning.
They always leave a message for Angela Stanton and she has a different address
They continue to call and hang up. When u try and call back they want u to leave a message. We want them to stop, or just send their address so we may respond.
I called them back 5 times to ask what they wanted. I was transferred several times and disconnected each time. I never received an answer.
I just got a call on this for someone I have no idea who they are. They called on my cell phone and I have had that number for over 15 years so I know it's not someone's old number.
I'm getting calls twice a day for someone I don't even know. I've told them every damned time that this person does not live at this address, they apologize and then the next day they do the same thing. I'm filing a report with my State Attorney General's office and also filing complaints via the Federal Do Not Call website because I'm sick of it.
I am getting harrassing calls from them also. They call 4-5 times a day. Even after I have talked to them. I will pay my bill directly. Why are they farming out collections to foreigners to handle.
They, if I am not mistaken, are only permitted to call once a day. If they make contact, I believe it is then 72 hours. However.. there are a few things they can and cannot do. Take a few minutes and enable yourselves, guys! Read the rules, know what you are allowed to do and what they are allowed to do. Hanging up on you is considered harrassment and they are not allowed to do that. For every violation of the fair credit and collection laws, you are entitled to file a complaint. For every complaint you file, you may be entitled to collect up to $1000 determined by an agency or court. I don't think you actually have to go to court for this, but you file the complaint on the Attorney General's site for your state.
And here are some letter examples. Do not let them walk on you. They violate laws all the time. http://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/debt-collection-sample-letters-5125.php
Got a call from 202-607-2732
on my cell. No message, so i called these guys back. Someone answered, i asked why they were calling, gave the number they called and they said they were looking for Giovani. BTW...I've had my number for 6 years. Anyway, I said "nope, not me" and they said they'd take my number off. But I doubt it...they seem relentless. I'll post if they call again. We'll see how it goes.
Several calls a day from this company for months - always with different numbers. I have tried calling back several times. Only twice have I actually spoken to a person. I have tried to explain that this number is my 12 year old son's cell phone number and no one by the name they are looking for lives here. My son just got this phone a year ago and the calls started shortly after that so I am assuming he was given a number that had belonged to someone else. Every time I call they say they will take this number off their list but the calls keep coming.

Without any ID from the callers they are asking me about some one with the same last name. I have no idea why thay are calling since they don't identify themselves and when I ask why they are calling they want to know who I am in relationship to who they seek.....I see this as harrassment on any account. How do I press charges?
I owed for a Cell Phone Bill that my daugher ran up and it got sent to BCR-Bureau of Collections/Recovery. The # that showed up was
a Washington D.C. #. Yes, they apparently aren't Americans. But I got the bill paid and they deleted it off my credit report. T.

This number says "Marketing" on the caller ID but it is from BCR, the same as other numbers on my caller ID. I don't have my ringer turned on. I'm disabled and all this stuff is so superfiscial!
I have been getting 2 calls a day from "BCR" in Washington DC, from 202-607-2748
, -2749, & -2806, among other numbers. They are calling for people from whom I bought this house over 2 years ago, who apparently have dodged their debts! Apparently this company did a reverse look-up for the new phone number for this address, & they call here every day, even Sunday morning at 10:07 a.m.! I keep telling them the facts & to stop calling me but the calls keep coming. I am going to discontinue my telephone service & just stick to my cell phone from now on. This is distressing, especially since my husband has been sick with cancer for several months. Yes, I've told them that, too, but it doesn't seem to matter to them. What creepy people!!!
Called saying I owe a bill I remeeber paying. Calls often from this collector BCS usin different # I think. I called back and told would not tell me who they were just BCR. Called again and I was hung up on (a fovorite tatic of thi company). Called again and got answering machine. I called again and got a re)lly nice lady who game me the following address. Use it teo ask thenm not to call again and be sure t register the letter and keep a copy. If they call back after that you may be able to file a complaint and actually collect money from them!

keeps calling, and I tell them they have the wrong number, and yet they still call every day.
202-607-2732 shows on my caller id but they didn't say anything.
Just moved to AZ and as soon as we hooked up our phone service, we've been receiving 1-2 calls per day from BCR with phone numbers being 202-607-2732
and "2733". The phone number they ask you to call is 1-888-276-8209
. Don't know why they're calling us and wish they would stop. It's awful...also been called by other companies looking for the same person. What's scary is we asked for our number to be unpublished and unlisted...so, how do people get it? Does anyone know if it would be worth it to ask the telephone company for a new phone number...preferably one that nobody else has had in the past?
They call all the time under different numbers. The calls are always recordings. I called back.They hung up on me because I would not give them my name...Only the number they kept calling. I called them a number of times. Finally I got a man that did not yell at me nor ask me for my name. Only if I knew Lucien.....okay...if they listened to the message on the machine they left messages on....it clearly stated my first name and last.....I hope he removed my number.....in the mean time, I have filed a number of complaints on the no call registery site and will continue if the calls continue.
If they are ligit....why is it always a recorded message? Why do they not refer to you by name on those messages? Why are they rude and nasty....
Probably because they are paid minimum wage (if that) to collect on what they feel is bad debt.....they got the wrong girl here.
If calls continue....I will continue....calling, hanging up and/or just being rude.
I wasn't who they were looking for....they didn't need to be rude....they didn't need to call me 2 times a day for the last 6 months...

I receive 2-3 calls a day
They ask for Marisol Castillo. No one by that name resides in my home. Informed Supervisor and was told they would not call again. Yet it has been ongoing for 3 mos.
other lines they call are:
same people Pain in the ASS
I have gotten 3 calls in the last week from BCR. Today is Sunday morning and we immediately called them right back because they keep calling. It was another recording that doesn't allow you to actually get through to anyone. The #'s on my caller ID have been different each time. One was listed as unknown, another was BCR 202-607-2732
,and today was 1-800-831-7311
. We don't owe any debt to be collected. There is no reason for them to keep calling.
I have filed a complaint against this same number (BCR 202.607-2732) to the Do Not Call list. They call me every day, give me a recorded message to call an 888 number, which has another recorded message.
A recording stating they are BCR and to call the number they leave.
Found out they are a collections. Calls 2-3 times a day even on Sunday. When asked what company they are with they say it's none of my business if I'm not the person they want. How rude!!

They manipulated their Toll free number 1-866-364-9836
into a DC landline number 202-607-2732, nice trick. Same, collector agent calling from outside the US (I guess) with noise signal and strong accents.
MD resident Apr 10th, 2007
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.
Collection threats for somebody named Andrea.
